CNBC Europe selects Pebble Beach automation

CNBC Europe, in London, has installed a multichannel Neptune automation system from Pebble Beach Systems to playout the Sci-Fi channel on the U.K.-based Sky Digital service. CNBC plans to control other channels with the same system in the future.

At CNBC, the Neptune system is controlling a four-port Omneon Video Networks server; a six-port SeaChange International server; a Sony FlexiCart with two VTRs; a Pixel Power Clarity character generator; a Quartz Q32 SDI router; a Grass Valley Venus routing switcher; external VTRs; and a Softel subtitler.

The system includes configurable PC clients that can control both ingest and transmission functions, and for handling playlists, an automatic schedule record list utility and a playlist translator. This enables Neptune to interface to the existing MSA Focus traffic system.

The system at CNBC London also features the Pebble Beach Periscope tool, a timeline viewer that allows any operator to monitor all playing channels on a single screen. The system also has a spare device controller with a changeover switch for redundancy.

Eleven FCC Scenarios for The 600 MHz Band Plan
I suspect that the estimated $44 billion of auction proceeds do not take into account the fact that some spectrum the FCC will buy cannot be resold because it must be used as guard intervals in the 600 MHz band plan.~ Charles W. Rhodes
