WTVO prepares for multicasting with Sundance

WTVO, a Nexstar-operated station located in Rockford, IL, will replace its aging and obsolete automation system with a Sundance Digital FastBreak Automation suite in preparation for multicasting. The ABC affiliate will consolidate operations with WQR, Nexstar’s Fox outlet, plus a UPN station to transmit a total of three channels from the WTVO master control facility beginning in April 2005.

The Sundance Digital configuration will include the vompany’s Intelli-Sat Broadcast Manager to schedule and record satellite feeds, two media prep stations, a SQL server for database management, three air stations and a DDMS (Digital Delivery Management System) module for hands-free integration of Pathfire-delivered content and metadata. The Sundance package will control a Leitch Nexio server and Evertz mini master control switchers.
