WXIA-TV installs HD routing from Utah Scientific
The UTAH-400 HD is designed as a scalable matrix architecture.
WXIA-TV, the NBC affiliate in Atlanta, has made the transition to HD with master control and routing switchers from Utah Scientific.
As part of its new system, the station has installed Utah Scientific's MC-2020 SD/HD master control switcher and a 256 x 256 UTAH-400 HD routing switcher.
WXIA currently broadcasts an analog, an SD and an HD channel. The SD signal is devoted to NBC's Weather Plus, a digital weather channel. Along with the UTAH-400 and MC-2020 switchers, the station is using Harris automation, Omneon Video Networks' Spectrum servers, and a Sony news production switcher to manage its HD broadcasts.
Also included in the installation is the company's SC-4, a control system that can be used with any of the current or legacy Utah routing switchers while also providing interface capability to many third-party control and switching systems.
