Megahertz builds two final control centers for etv

Megahertz Broadcast Systems has recently completed the design and integration of two final control centers for etv's Johannesburg operation.

The two centers, identical in design, use a Quartz QMC master control complete with DVE, logo Store, downstream keyer and QMC-FS control panel.

They also employ a 128x128 SDI/analog audio router interfacing with a Harris automation system to drive an Omneon video server for the ingest and playout of all program titles, commercials and stings. Other sources include a character generator, an on-air clock and two local VTRs.

The new control centers are part of an ongoing upgrade to the Johannesburg Studio Complex and follow previous work completed by Megahertz for etv.

Megahertz also supplied all custom made desks and monitor stacks.
