KNME, the University of New Mexico's public broadcasting station in Albuquerque, NM, will support the addition of a new HD channel, KNMD, by incorporating Utah's MC-400 HD/SD channel-branding processor and new EAS software interface within its existing MC-2020 master control system.

KNME, which currently operates two SD and one HD channel, purchased the Utah master control switcher as part of a top-to-bottom digital makeover.

The MC-400 is fully compatible with existing Utah Scientific equipment, enabling duopoly KNME and KNMD to achieve a functional technology upgrade while saving the expense of a new master control system. Because the MC-400 packs its signal processing into a single board, it can be installed directly in the output slot of a UTAH-400 router frame. Utah's new EAS interface feature enables a station's existing EAS to communicate directly with the master control.
