WJRT-TV improves on-air presentation with NVerzion
ABC affiliate WJRT-TV, based in Flint, MI, has optimized its file-based workflow relying on NVerzion's Component Level Automation System Solutions (CLASS).
Leveraging CLASS, the station has been able to increase operational efficiencies dramatically, reduce costs and deliver a higher quality on-air presentation to viewers located in Flint and the surrounding Tri-Cities of Saginaw, Bay City and Midland.
WJRT operates three channels: the main HD channel that delivers ABC and local programming, and two SD subchannels offering the Live Well Network and weather programming, respectively. The station recently optimized its file-based workflow by adding new NVerzion automation capabilities, including an NCompass ingest management application that automatically transfers files from Pathfire and PitchBlue content delivery systems directly to the on-air server in addition to controlling automatic scheduling of secondary and tertiary events, such as snipes and other compelling graphics originating from a new WideOrbit traffic system.
