KWTV deploys Telestream for digital archive

Oklahoma-based KWTV has deployed Telestream’s MAPreview digital video capture and logging system to replace its massive tape-based video archives.

Randy Cassimus, director of operations at KWTV, said they used to spend a lot of time changing tapes, stocking tapes, and having people find tapes. Now, program content resides on a server and is easily available from a PC on the network,

Prior to purchasing the Telestream system, KWTV recorded all of it aired programs onto VHS tapes. That involved multiple VHS tape machines going nonstop 24/7. In addition, all newscasts were recorded onto Betacam machines. This required a great deal of machine maintenance, tape handling, and shelf and rack space to hold the tapes.

Using MAPreview, KWTV now captures and archives all station programming in efficient Windows Media 9 format onto MAP media capture servers. These programs are held for nine months for BMI and ASCAP audits, ad-run verification, program analysis and executive review. MAP/review/ also captures and archives KWTV's two competitors' programs.
