Finnish commercial television station MTV Oy (MTV3) chose XOR for its mixed play-to-air and production storage infrastructure. The new MTV Oy play-to-air and production setup utilises the XOR Universal MediaLibrary storage and XOR MediaClient software codecs servers. XOR technologies replaced MTV Oy’s 10-year-old multi-vendor server system, which had reached its storage operational limit. The broadcaster also experienced challenges in the complexity of having separate SD/HD servers and in repurposing content for new viewing platforms. To delimit MTV Oy’s storage infrastructure, XOR Media deployed the Universal MediaLibrary storage system, each of the two nodes with a massive capacity of 144TB, located separately with a distance of 7km between them. In MTV Oy, one UML node serves as ingest/playout while the other as production storage. The UMLs are mirrored to act as each other’s backup systems, resulting in a simplified and fully redundant architecture. Eight XOR MediaClient 8200 (MCL 8200) software codec servers are connected to both UMLs to support the 30-input and 42-output channel requirement, with HD playout and SD up conversion. In the present configuration, the MCL 8200 features a new functionality called multipath, which allows the playback decoder to stream clips from either the primary or the secondary UML in a fully automated manner. The multipath feature adds redundancy and flexibility to the playout server.www.xor-media.com
