Merged stations share Omneon server in master control
The duopoly of KVLY-TV 11 (NBC affiliate) and KXJB-TV 4 (CBS affiliate) serving the Fargo and Valley City areas of North Dakota has deployed an Omneon Spectrum media server system for playout from a joint master control room.
The server system, installed to support the merging of KXJB operations into the KVLY facility, provides centralized playout of both channels and handles all content ingest.
The 10-channel server at KVLY/KXJB’s joint Fargo facility operates in conjunction with a Crispin automation system for playout of both channels, as well as ingest of approximately 35 programs and promo feeds each day. The two channels are part of the Wicks Television family of broadcast stations.
