McGraw-Hill Broadcasting Group has completed installation of ParkerVision's (www. parkervision.com) PVTV NEWS live production automation systems for live local news production within all four of its ABC affiliates. KMGH in Denver has become the first implementation of the PVTV NEWS CR4000 system, designed specifically for live automated news production in major markets.
All four McGraw-Hill stations, WRTV in Indianapolis; KGTV in San Diego; KMGH in Denver, and KERO in Bakersfield, CA, online and performing all of their newscasts with ParkerVision's CR3000 and CR4000 series systems.
The McGraw-Hill stations took various approaches to implementing PVTV NEWS. Indianapolis, Bakersfield, and Denver began automating their live news production during morning and afternoon newscasts and transitioned to primetime newscasts, demonstrating the ability to slowly implement PVTV NEWS, while San Diego moved all its newscasts to the system.
