Charter Media acquires Broadcast Pix switchers

Charter Media in Kingsport, TN, has purchased two Broadcast Pix Studio 2000 switchers for live production of commercials and long-format, local-origination programming in and around Kingsport and the Dalton, GA, region.

Charter Media is the advertising division of Charter Communications, one of the nation’s largest cable companies. The systems were installed in late summer as part of new mobile production vehicles for coverage of live events, including high school and collegiate sports.

Broadcast Pix switchers come with a built-in Inscriber character generator, four-hour clip store and monitoring.

Both Charter Media systems feature an intelligent breakout box (iBoB) to connect a mix of Sony cameras, audio mixers and playback devices. The Kingsport site also connects Charter Communications DVR boxes to Studio 2000 for instant replay.
