FOX O&Os in NYC market go tapeless for news


WNYW-TV and WWOR-TV are converting their news operations to the Panasonic DVCPRO P2 solid-state memory recording system.

FOX Television’s owned-and-operated stations in the New York City market -WNYW-TV and WWOR-TV- are converting their news operations to the Panasonic DVCPRO P2 solid-state memory recording system.

The stations’ initial purchase includes a large amount of DVCPRO P2 equipment, including AJ-SPX800 cameras, AJ-SPD850 studio decks and AJ-PCD10 drives. The stations will begin the conversion of their news operations to DVCPRO P2 in March. Currently, WNYW-TV produces 38 hours of news programming weekly and WWOR-TV produces seven hours a week.

DVCPRO P2 will enable WNYW-TV and WWOR-TV to implement new, cost-effective workflow processes to speed up newsgathering and deliver the news faster to viewers.

The P2 system offers nonlinear acquisition and instant access to material, high-speed file transfer, laptop field editing without the need for proxy videos, and compatibility with off-the-shelf data storage drives for low-cost archiving, while eliminating traditional digitizing and ingesting operations.
