WABC-DT deploys nine 1 Beyond HD OctoFlex systems for ENG
August 6, 2009
WABC-DT, the ABC Network/Walt Disney Company owned-and-operated (O&O) TV station in New York City, has signed a contract with systems manufacturer
1 Beyond to deploy nine 1 Beyond HD OctoFlex Rugged ENG truck systems, using Grass Valley Aurora HD editing and file management software, in a rack-mount enclosure designed for electronic newsgathering (ENG) vans.
Unlike typical rack-mount systems for computer rooms, 1 Beyond’s HD OctoFlex Rugged system was designed with a ruggedized military vehicle chassis, with shock-mounted disk drives and redundant modular power supplies. The deal pushes the total number of 1 Beyond systems in use by ABC O&Os to more than 50 nationwide. All are equipped with Grass Valley Aurora field editing capability.
The 1 Beyond HD OctoFlex Rugged ENG truck system includes an AJA Video I/O card with breakout rack-mount inputs and outputs, giving WABC’s crews easy I/O access and a complete editing system to cut pieces in the field. The system is designed to meet the needs of TV stations working remotely with tapeless HD camera formats.
