KUAT-TV Automates With Sundance Titan
October 27, 2006
KUAT-TV, the PBS affiliate in Tucson, Ariz., has installed a six-channel Sundance Digital Titan automation system.
Situated on the University of Arizona campus in Tucson, KUAT operates two stations and a University channel for Cox Cable; one-station airs in HD 24/7 while the other multicasts four SD programs streams. Titan, a highly scalable automation solution, is designed to control up to hundreds of channels and will drive all six playlists. The Sundance configuration will include TitanSync auto-failover redundancy and Intelli-Sat "PBS Edition" to manage the capture and recording of programming received via satellite.
David Ross, director of engineering, KUAT Communications Group, said when it was looking at its options for an automations system, Sundance's reputation with in the PBS community was "unequalled."
"Sundance Digital has the best and most advanced interface to Myers Pro Track traffic software allowing a true dynamic information exchange between the automation and traffic systems which becomes really, really critical as the network's schedules increase," Ross said.
