Pappas to automate 10 stations

Pappas Telecasting, the largest privately held, commercial TV broadcast group in the United States, is fully automating 10 stations between now and the second quarter of next year.

The automation project will ensure Pappas viewers receive the latest uninterrupted news, local information and entertainment.

The stations that are part of the automation project include: KMEG and KPTH in Sioux City, IA; KREN and KAZR in Reno, NV; WTWB in Greensboro, NC; KPTM and KXVO in Omaha, NE; KMPH and KFRE in Fresno, CA; and KPWB in Des Moines, IA. Pappas expects the automation installation to be completed by early this month at the stations in Reno, Fresno and Omaha.

Pappas has contracted with NVerzion of Salt Lake City, UT, to provide the station automation system. The project will include NVerzion's NControl playlist, NGest record and NPoint for segmenting clips. It also includes NBase and a redundant NBase database of video server clips and source tapes; NView, to act as an easy access database window; Ntime, a time-based router event scheduler software package; EMC, an NConvert traffic interface; and NVerzion NFire Pathfire interface. The NVerzion solution controls Utah Scientific routing switchers, Omneon video servers and Vizrt branding boxes.
