Detroit PBS Station Controls With DNF
WTVS Detroit Public Television (DPTV) has deployed DNF Controls' 4000CL Clip Fast Access system as a controller for the station's Omneon Spectrum media server. The 4000CL consists of DNF's ST300 slow motion controller with Shotlist software, and facilitates DPTV's conversion of master control to digital by offering a user interface for control over server channels.

"The 4000CL has allowed us to move away from VTR use and realize the benefits of digital record and playout capability. We now have a greater recording capacity, and we have reduced the potential for playout errors," said Helge Blucher, vice president of engineering and technology for DPTV. Currently, the station is using the system primarily for record and playback-for-air for the station's pledge drive. Blucher said he has plans to purchase a second unit for use in production, phasing out VTRs entirely.
