Avid Inks Fox TV Deal
Avid announced a multi-million dollar deal this week with Fox Television Stations to convert six of the 27 Fox stations to digital production environments for ingest, editing, storage and playout of news content.

New gear will be installed at WNYW, New York City; WTXF, Philadelphia; WFXT, Boston; WTTG, Washington, D.C.; WTVT, Tampa, Fla. and WITI, Milwaukee. The transition should be complete by the end of 2005.

The stations will match the setup of WOFL in Orlando, which made the switch to a digital workflow in May, installing an Avid Unity for News shared-storage media network and TransferManager and Media Manager software, Avid NewsCutter Adrenaline systems and NewsCutter XP systems, AirSpeed systems for ingest and playout of digital content and Avid Media Composer Adrenaline systems.
