WLS-Channel 7 Chicago unveils new look with Pixel Power

July 8, 2005

WLS-Channel 7 in Chicago is using two Clarity 500 systems from Pixel Power to unveil a fresh on-air look for all of its newscasts.

The ABC-owned station gave itself a makeover, complete with new openings for its newscasts, new graphics and a new animated takes on its familiar logo.

Clarity 500 can combine text, stills, video clips, sound and live video in each channel. It is available with TG, CG or GX level software features and it provides two fully independent SD channels.

At WLS the Clarity 500 systems are closely integrated into the station's Avid iNews newsroom automation system using the Pixel Power Control Centre Server and Pixel Power ActiveX plug-in for Avid iNews. This pair of tools provides fast, interactive, visual graphics search tools conveniently placed within the producers desktop working environment.

WLS also implemented playout automation using Avid’s iNews ControlAir and the Pixel Power Device Manager for ControlAir.
