Quincy Newspapers Upgrades With Harris
March 23, 2007
Quincy Newspapers Inc. is installing Harris Corp. equipment to upgrade two of its television outlets to digital operations.
Harris is equipping stations WXOW-TV in La Crosse, Wis., and WQOW-TV in Eau Claire, Wis., with server-based master control and production room operations. Harris NX4000TXS transmission servers are being used in the upgrade program, along with Integrator Gold and Panacea routing systems, as well as 6800+ series and NEO signal processing equipment. Harris CCS Pilot software was used for control purposes.
"Rebuilding the complete technical core of this facility was a tremendous challenge," said Brady Dreasler, director of engineering for Quincy Newspapers. "For the studio upgrade component, we chose to install an all-Harris digital solution because of the company's ability to deliver reliable products backed by superior support. Quincy has been a long-time Harris customer, having purchased Harris TV transmitters exclusively for our stations, including WXOW and WQOW, for many years."
The facility upgrades are scheduled to be completed in April.
