Sony Builds Digital Broadcast Center for New York Network
New York Network (NYN), the official television facility of New York State, recently dedicated an all-new digital broadcast center in a ceremony that featured former New York Governor Hugh L. Carey. Adjacent to the State Capitol in Albany's Empire State Plaza, the facility was built by the Broadcast and Professional Systems Division of Sony Electronics.

The facility features a digital standard-definition infrastructure, with the option to add high-definition in the future. With a total contract value of $10.6 million, the NYN Broadcast Center has three studios and production control rooms, two nonlinear edit suites, an announcer booth, automation and archiving capability, satellite links and field-production facilities. The center features seven Sony HDC-950 high-definition studio cameras, three Sony MVS-8000 multi-format switchers, 13 DVW-A500 Digital Betacam videotape recorders and three DMX-R100 digital audio mixing consoles.

The Sony team installed 110 miles of cable, and integrated equipment from other industry leaders, including Avid, Evertz, Fujinon, Graham-Patten, Harris Automation, Leitch, Harris, Pinnacle, Telecast and Vinten.
