BBC Sport is integrating Harmonic’s Omneon Mediagrid active storage into a file-based production system at the broadcaster’s new Salford Quays site.

Designed to enable instant highlights creation and fast-turnaround edits, Omneon Mediagrid is being installed along with EVS live production systems.

It will provide central storage for up to 1,500 hours of HD content.

Sports events will be recorded onto EVS servers for logging and instant editing and streamed to the Omneon MediaGrid via EVS XTAccess.

The scalable system will be capable of supporting 36 simultaneous ingests, and up to 200 journalists will be able to search and view a proxy version of footage using EVS IP Browse.
