WYFF prepares for DTV transition with UTAH-400

WYFF, the Hearst-Argyle-owned NBC affiliate in Greenville, SC, has deployed the Utah Scientific UTAH-400 digital routing switcher, MC-2020 master control switcher, and SqueezeMax effects unit to support its transition from analog to digital and to enable broadcast in HD.

One way WYFF distinguishes itself from the competition in its market is by broadcasting the region's only live Doppler radar. The Utah Scientific SqueezeMax effects unit, which replaces two pieces of analog equipment, will, among other things, enable the station to use its live Doppler radar more flexibly and predictably as an element within its station ID.

The UTAH-400 digital routing switcher family includes HD and SD digital video switchers and AES/EBU digital audio switchers in all matrix sizes. At WYFF, the UTAH-400 router, on the air since June, is a 144-frame, 96 x 40 system. The station’s new MC-2020 frame can hold two independent signal-processing channels, allowing WYFF to build a system in one frame that supports both SD and HD formats as well as dual-channel configurations for either format.

With higher resolutions and larger HD screens, wide shots using very wide lenses can be a problem because they allow viewers to see that infinity doesn’t quite resolve into perfect sharpness.
