KCET-TV moves with Euphonix
PBS affiliate KCET-TV in Southern California now operates its own production truck using a Euphonix System 5-BP with 24 channel strips and 72 channels.
When on site at KCET's Hollywood lot, the truck is used for a variety of applications. KCET's truck is also rented to Tribune Broadcasting, where it is used for audio and video support to produce ESPN's Jim Rome is Burning show.
When on site at Tribune Broadcasting, the truck is connected to the inside facilities by fiber optic lines. The truck is equipped with two Euphonix FiberTran MADI extenders capable of 48 microphone lines, with mic splitters on FiberTran stage boxes. This setup facilitates connection to the remote Euphonix mic preamps that reside on several stages inside Tribune's studios.
