The OmniPlayer installation for Elemedia includes 33 OmniPlayer Production workstations and 54 OmniPlayer On Air workstations. OmniPlayer is managing from a high availability system content for three stations in Rome and Milan including the regional studio’s in Torino, Oltremare and Riccione. OmniPlayer will also manage the automatic recording, encoding and distribution of the podcast channels for Radio Deejay, Radio Capital and M2O.
