The Educational Communications Center at Kansas State University in Manhattan, KS, has installed two Utah Scientific Utah-400 routing switchers for video and audio, along with the SC-4 control system, as part of its transition to digital operations.
The center has full production facilities, including four studios, an uplink truck and a production truck. Around-the-clock programming includes lectures, music, arts and K-State football and basketball video-board productions. The center also contracts some commercial work, such as outdoor events for Cabela's and video-board productions for a local music festival. Additionally, the Educational Communications Center frequently provides backhaul services for CNN, PBS and other networks.
Installed in one day and on the air since March, K-State's new routers are upgradeable to HD by means of a simple card exchange.
