Azcar Wins $6 Million Contract to Design TV System for D.C. Production Facility
Azcar of Markham, Ontario, Canada, was awarded a $6 million turnkey contract to design and install a production facility for Washington, D.C.-based Peninsula Production Co., which hopes to have the project complete in time for the election. The facility will include control and translation rooms, nonlinear news editing, a newsroom automation system, and archive and media asset management components.
"Our engineering committee closely evaluated several leading System Integration companies and concluded that Azcar provided the most comprehensive solution for building our new facility in time for the U.S. presidential elections in the fall," said Charles Bellman, Peninsula's chief engineer.
