WXIX automation system marks anniversary

WXIX-TV, the Fox affiliate in Cincinnati, OH, recently marked its first anniversary under FastBreak control. Owned by Raycom Media, WXIX-TV broadcasts on Channel 19 to serve Cincinnati and Hamilton County with one NTSC channel and two DTV program streams. The station’s second automation system, FastBreak replaced a spot caching system that stored four and a half hours of commercials. All programming was played back on tape. The new Sundance system controls an Omneon video server that stores 240 hours of programming and commercials plus a mix of analog and digital tape transports.

To ensure redundancy, a Sundance Digital ListSync workstation mirrors the station’s playlists using separate channels on the video server for additional on-air insurance.
