Sundance Automates Canadian Public Affairs Channel

January 6, 2006
CPAC, Canada's version of C-SPAN, has moved to a tapeless workflow environment using Sundance Digital's Titan automation package as the core of its digital upgrade.

Located in downtown Ottawa, the Cable Public Affairs Channel provides around-the-clock political and public affairs programming to more than 9.5 million Canadian viewers over cable, satellite, broadcast and the Internet. CPAC's 2-channel Titan configuration drives one on-air channel and the network's Web stream. The automation suite is comprised of Titan Air and Media Prep stations to manage content on an Omneon video server, Intelli-Sat Broadcast Manager to schedule and record feeds, and TitanSync for redundancy.

The system controls a Sony HDSX 3700 router, Sony IMX VTRs, Quartz QMC-SD master control switcher, Chyron CG and an Evertz caption encoder and log generator. Titan is also closed interfaced with CPAC's BroadView traffic system.
