Utah Scientific Outfits Austin Public Access

Public Access Community Television (PACT) in Austin, Texas, installed a UTAH-400 routing switcher and a UTAH-300 routing switcher, along with Utah Scientific's SC-4 control system and associated control panels for automated playback of three channels on two cable systems. 


Operating on cable channels 10, 11 and 16, PACT produces an average of 300 hours of original television programming every week, with diverse content including inspirational, community service, politics, cooking and music programs. Much of the programming is delivered by community members on videotape and then loaded on tape machines and encoded. 


An advantage of the UTAH-400 for PACT is that it handles the various signal formats in groups of eight rather than the more common larger blocks. That added flexibility meant PACT could more easily and cost-effectively customize a design to meet its needs.
