Atlanta's WXIA-TV goes HD with Utah Scientific

WXIA-TV, an NBC affiliate and Gannet-owned station based in Atlanta, recently made the transition to HD with master control and routing switchers from Utah Scientific. As part of its new system, the station has installed Utah Scientific's MC-2020 SD/HD master control switcher and a 256x256 UTAH-400 HD routing switcher.

WXIA's investment included new HD master control and routing switchers, an automation system, video server and signal converters. The company chose the UTAH-400 HD routing switcher for its ability to map out various feed formats coming through the facility.

WXIA currently broadcasts an analog, an SD, and an HD channel. The SD signal is devoted to NBC's Weather Plus digital weather channel. Along with the UTAH-400 and MC-2020 switchers, the station is using Harris automation, Omneon Spectrum servers, and a Sony news production switcher to manage its HD broadcasts.
