Crispin automates Florida PBS station

WGCU-TV, a Fort Myers, FL, PBS affiliate co-located with Florida Gulf Coast University, recently installed a Crispin System 2000 automation solution.

The station is using Crispin’s 2000 suite of applications to support satellite recording, media ingest, asset management and control of five channels for on-air playback. The Crispin solution includes six workstations, each focused on a specific workflow task. The system is designed with redundancy and air protection features.

Crispin’s on-air playout application, RapidPlayX, provides playlist monitoring and control, allowing WGCU-TV to create and load playlists, edit events, issue playlist commands and monitor event status. RapidPlayX automatically loads daily programs and record schedules for 24-hour operations and instantly updates events when new material is available. In addition to four SD channels, the station uses a fifth playback channel for HD its on-air playlist and ATSC day part control.

Crispin's Dubber application controls multiple source devices, allowing the station to acquire and prepare video assets for air. It provides all of the tools needed to speed and simplify the acquisition and preparation of material for fully automated on-air playback.
