New Jersey Network Selects Sundance Digital
NJN Public Television and Radio (NJN), New Jersey’s public broadcasting network, has taken delivery of a Sundance Digital three-channel Titan automation system for its overall upgrade and digital transition that includes automation of all the state network’s television, acquisition and play-out.

The Titan system will drive NJN’s 24/7 programming play-out that consists of one HD channel and one SD channel with the capability of bringing another SD channel on line in the future. A full complement of equipment falls under Titan control, including Omneon Spectrum video servers, an Nvision router, Miranda Master Control switcher, Miranda ImageStore with DVE, EAS, CG and audio, Miranda KX multiviewer and MassTech/Spectralogic archive.

Prior to the installation, NJN’s multichannel environment was controlled by a collection of home-brew elements more than 20 years old. Sundance Digital’s Titan was brought on-board to consolidate the network’s numerous control mechanisms into one platform and streamline workflow, specifically ingest and play-out efficiencies.

“With a few very minor tweaks we are ingesting content that just has to be lightly prepared for air,” Rick Williams, assistant director of engineering for NJN said. “That is a major change in our operation. We were previously completely hands on and now we look forward to non-real time delivery of content.”

The network, headquartered in Trenton, N.J., currently operates four analog and four digital TV transmitters that serve all New Jersey households, with or without cable, and cross into Philadelphia and New York as well.
