LEIGHTRONIX Customer Profile
Somerset Access Television
“I’ve been to all these seminars and all these places where they do product
demonstrations, and all the shows. I like LEIGHTRONIX the best.”

The Problem
Somerset Access TV needed a video server
solution that could broadcast their public,
government, and education channels, and
automatically create files for and deliver
content to a video-on-demand site.
The Solution
UltraNEXUS
PEG Central
TOTAL INFO
How It Works
The UltraNEXUS automates the station’s
broadcast channels and creates files
optimized for video-on-demand streaming
and automatically delivers those files to
PEG Central. The PEG Central web hosting
and video-on-demand site can be easily
navigated so viewers can find desired
content at their convenience.
In Their Words
“Most people watch the meetings but even
if I schedule the meetings every single day,
there’s going to be somebody that didn’t see
it or just wants to watch a certain part.”
–Lori Belché
Station Operations Manager
End Result
“Out of all of the playback systems that
are farmed to us at these seminars, tech
shows, and public access shows, to me,
LEIGHTRONIX is the best.”

Somerset, MA—Somerset Access TV (SATV) is a local PEG station in
Massachusetts that runs a public access, a government, and an education
channel, and maintains a PEG Central® video-on-demand site that combines the
content from all three channels in one convenient location online.
Lori Belché, SATV’s station operation manager, said the PEG Central videoon-demand service is extremely valuable to her station because it allows her
viewers to watch specific content whenever they want. A resident’s schedule
may not allow them to see a show when it broadcasts, but with PEG Central they
can view the desired content at a time that is convenient for them.
“People are loving (PEG Central) in this town. Most people watch the meetings
but even if I schedule the meetings every single day, there’s going to be
somebody that didn’t see it or just wants to watch a certain part,” Belché said.
“They love that they can see it on their iPad and their phone, so it’s nice that it
integrates well with all those too.”
LEIGHTRONIX is “the Best”
Belché said she made sure to do her research before choosing a video-on-demand
service and she decided that PEG Central was the service she liked the most.
“I’ve been to all these seminars and all these places where they do product
demonstrations, and all the shows,” Belché said. “I like LEIGHTRONIX the best.
It just looks nicer, it’s designed better. The design of the other ones to me looks

like the web in 1995, it’s not visually pretty. I like that LEIGHTRONIX takes up the
entire screen, that straight across you can see the description. The other ones, I’m
just not a fan of, they look like something that was designed and tossed… And the
LEIGHTRONIX interface is totally user friendly for people who go to use it.”
To organize her PEG Central site, Belché takes advantage of the folder capability of
the service and sorts the default page by creation date. When users first go to the
Somerset site, Belché has set the page to order the videos by creation date. Belché
then sets the creation date to the date the video first airs on the broadcast channel
so when viewers go to the PEG Central page, the newest broadcasts are the most
recent (and topmost) videos on PEG Central. Belché has also set up a folder system
to make it easy to find videos, on the site. She has folders dedicated to such topics
as town meetings, selectman meetings, high school videos, and more. With this
feature, a viewer can easily click a folder of the topic they are interested in and see
all the video for that topic.
Same Hardware
To post the videos on PEG Central, Belché is able to use the same piece of
hardware that she uses to air the station’s content on its cable channels, the
UltraNEXUS™ video server. The UltraNEXUS creates two copies of the files it
records or ingests: one broadcast quality file and one file optimized for online
video-on-demand viewing.
The content SATV airs comes from various places and in various forms, all of
which the UltraNEXUS is able to easily handle.
“We have originally produced content, we have a few people that come in and do
some shows, and we have MyMassTV which is an app across Massachusetts,
we often share whatever we feel is appropriate,” Belche said.
