KGW-TV launches use of six-channel Sundance Digital automation system
KGW-TV, the NBC affiliate in Portland, OR, is using its new six-channel Sundance Digital Titan automation system. KGW-TV joins 13 other stations in the Belo Television Group that operate with Titan at their digital core. Belo, one of the nation's largest media companies and owns 19 television stations, six of which are in the 15 largest U.S. broadcast markets.
Titan is a scalable automation system able to control many hundreds of channels in a facility or remotely manage playlists at multiple geographically separated locations. KGW-TV currently operates six Titan channels, one of which is a spoke for Northwest Cable News originating from Belo’s KING/KONG duopoly in Seattle.
The KGW-TV installation marks the first time Belo has integrated Titan with the new full HD/SD version of the Grass Valley K2 video server, giving the station immediate HD/commercial capability and providing a path to growth as the station migrates towards high definition and an increased channel count.
