Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints Gets Omneon Server

Sunnyvale Calif.-based Omneon Inc. has announced that The Church of Jesus of Latter-day Saints in Salt Lake City, Utah has installed one of the company’s Spectrum media servers.

The server supports 96 audio channels and will be used for playout of church programming on a worldwide basis. The multiplicity of audio tracks available from a single source will simplify targeted distribution of programming in specific languages.

"Anyone would recognize the need for tapeless recording and playback in a modern broadcast environment, but the complexity of our operations required a uniquely robust server solution," said Sean D. McFarland, chief engineer for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. "We waited a long time before finding a solution that could handle the high volume of discrete audio tracks associated with our programming, and Omneon was the only company capable of meeting the demands of this sizable undertaking."

McFarland added that with the addition of the Spectrum, workflow operations have been simplified, with a corresponding reduction in time required to prepare programming and also in the potential for error.

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints operates a network that spans the globe to deliver programming to church groups. Content is ingested into the server in HD, but is delivered to audiences in SD to minimize satellite bandwidth requirements. NVerizon automation is used to operate the Omenon Spectrum
