ABC Affiliate KXXV Adds Utah Scientific Gear
SALT LAKE CITY: Utah
Scientific said Central Texas ABC affiliate KXXV has upgraded its plant from
analog to digital with Utah Scientific routing and master control equipment.
The move is part of a groupwide upgrade for owner Drewry Communications Group,
which has standardized all of its facilities on Utah Scientific.
The Utah Scientific equipment
provides complete HD-SDI routing for both KXXV and its sister channel, KRHD-CD,
creating a more flexible workflow and enabling the station to compete in an
all-HD market. Thanks to the new equipment, KXXV delivered the market’s first
HD broadcast of local segments of Jerry Lewis’ MDA Labor Day Telethon.
KXXV installed an MCP-2020
multichannel master control panel; an MC-GUI; two MC-4000 master control
processors with DVE, logo, and EAS capabilities; a UTAH-400 routing switcher
V-144R frame loaded 88x56 for 3G HD/SD and V-32R frame loaded 8x8 for AES; an
SC-4 control system; UTAH-100/3 Series 3G HD/SD distribution amplifiers; a
TSG-490 sync generator; a SoftPanel-2 GUI; and various control panels.
