Belo consolidates master control for New Orleans stations
Belo recently consolidated master control operations at its two New Orleans television stations — WWL-TV and WUPL-TV — using a Sundance Digital multi-channel Titan automation system.
Belo recently added WUPL to its roster of stations and wanted to merge master control operations with those at the existing WWL-TV facility. Belo installed a four-channel Sundance Digital Titan Automation suite to handle both stations’ NTSC and DTV channels and to distribute content to NewsWatch 15, the stations’ 24-hour cable news channel.
The new Titan configuration includes Sundance Digital’s TitanSync auto-failover redundancy to backup the primary system, and an SQL Data Server for enhanced redundancy. Also included are three Media Prep stations for managing content on the video server, the Intelli-Sat broadcast record manager, as well as the Mirror/Data Mover and News Recorder applications to repurpose newscasts or other live broadcasts for later server-based playback.
