Quincy Newspapers Upgrades With Harris
Quincy Newspapers Inc.
is installing Harris Corp.
equipment to upgrade two of its television outlets to digital operations.
Harris is equipping stations WXOW-TV in La Crosse, Wis., and WQOW-TV in Eau Claire, Wis., with server-based master control and production room operations. Harris NX4000TXS transmission servers are being used in the upgrade program, along with Integrator Gold and Panacea routing systems, as well as 6800+ series and NEO signal processing equipment. Harris CCS Pilot software was used for control purposes.
"Rebuilding the complete technical core of this facility was a tremendous challenge," said Brady Dreasler, director of engineering for Quincy Newspapers. "For the studio upgrade component, we chose to install an all-Harris digital solution because of the company's ability to deliver reliable products backed by superior support. Quincy has been a long-time Harris customer, having purchased Harris TV transmitters exclusively for our stations, including WXOW and WQOW, for many years."
The facility upgrades are scheduled to be completed in April.
