CPAC goes digital with Sundance
CPAC, Canada’s cable-owned, commercial free, independent politics TV network, has placed a Sundance Digital Titan automation package at the core of its newly adopted tapeless workflow.
Located in downtown Ottawa south of Parliament Hill, CPAC’s broadcast center provides 24-hour political and public affairs programming to more than 9.5 million homes in Canada by cable, satellite and wireless distributors, and worldwide via 24-hour Webcasting and podcasts.
CPAC’s two-channel Titan configuration drives one on-air channel and the network’s Web stream. The automation suite is composed of Titan Air and Media Prep Stations to manage content on an Omneon Video Network’s server, an Intelli-Sat Broadcast Manager to schedule and record feeds, and TitanSync for redundancy.
The system controls a Sony HDSX 3700 router, Sony IMX VTRs, a Quartz QMC-SD master control switcher with CP-FS control panel, a Chyron character generator, and an Evertz caption encoder and logo generator. Titan is also closely interfaced with CPAC’s BroadView Traffic System.
