WTWB wins $100K in Snell & Wilcox gear in ‘Digital Makeover’ drawing

WTWB-TV/Channel 20, the Pappas Telecasting WB affiliate in Greensboro, NC, has won Snell & Wilcox’s “Digital Makeover” contest at NAB2004.

In a drawing during the final hours of the show, WTWB was selected to win $100,000 worth of Snell & Wilcox IQ Modular infrastructure equipment and RollCall control and monitoring software.

Snell & Wilcox sponsored the contest to draw attention to how an intelligent infrastructure can help broadcasters transition to new technologies in a cost-effective and non-disruptive way.

WTWB is located in the Greensboro-High Point-Winston Salem Designated Market Area, the 47th-largest DMA in the United States. The station is licensed to Pappas Telecasting Companies. WTWB’s companion digital station, WTWB-DT, can be viewed over-the-air on Channel 19.

As the “Digital Makeover” winner, WTWB-TV is entitled to choose components from Snell & Wilcox’s IQ Modular, RollCall, RollMap and RollSNMP product lines. The engineering staff may select from nearly 300 unique “self-aware” modules, which include dozens of conversion, distribution, routing, video, MPEG processing, monitoring, audio and test generator functions.
