New Mexico PBS Station Installs Utah Scientific MC-400
KNME, the University
of New Mexico’s PBS affiliate in Albuquerque
has installed a Utah Scientific MC-400 HD/SD channel branding processor and new
emergency alert system software within its existing MC-2020 master control
system, as part of a top-to-bottom digital makeover, which includes the
addition of a new HD channel, KNMD.
The MC-400 board—backwards compatible with existing Utah
gear—can be installed in the output slot of a UTAH-400 router frame. Utah’s
EAS interface feature enables a station’s existing EAS to communicate directly
with master control. The MC-400 channel branding processor can stand alone be
integrated into a multichannel system under the control of the MC-2020. The
MC-400 has access to every signal with in the routing switcher, eliminating the
need for external connections between the router and the control electronics.
