KTBC chooses Scopus encoder for live events coverage

Scopus Video Networks’ CODICO E-1720 digital satellite newsgathering (DSNG) encoder is being used at FOX affiliate KTBC FOX 7 in Austin, TX, to help cover central Texas for local and national FOX news programming.

The DSNG truck was built and designed by Shook Mobile Technology, and is operated by a crew of two KTBC news photographers.

The truck is equipped with the Scopus CODICO E-1720 encoder and has been used to contribute live shots for FOX to cover Hurricane Rita as it moved through Texas. KTBC FOX 7 also used the new truck to launch a high school football program that brings viewers coverage of different games each week. The station will also cover the Texas state legislature.

The E-1720 allows newsgathering teams to relay footage from almost anywhere, using state-of-the-art telemetry. With the L-band output and MPEG-2 codec, it enables transmission of audio and video converted for satellite transmission.
