KYTX inaugurates fully automated master control with Digital Broadcast’s MediaFire

Dallas-based London Broadcasting has recently completed installation of a Digital Broadcast MediaFire automated master control system at KYTX in Tyler, TX. The station’s MediaFire system can control HD and SD ingest and playout and automates scheduled recording of satellite feeds.

Networked to the system are the Pathfire, DG/Fast Channel and the station’s traffic system computers. Syndicated programming from Pathfire is received on the Pathfire server and is automatically transferred to the MediaFire servers, where it is stored and ready for automatic playout. No format conversion or prepping is required. Interfaces are also included for direct transfers from DG/FastChannel. An interface to KYTX’s traffic and billing system provides the playout schedule as well as an accurate as-run report.
