Cordillera Communications in Duluth, MN, has begun a complete conversion of news, production and promotional operations at its 11 television stations to the Panasonic Broadcast DVCPRO P2 solid-state memory recording system.

The group’s initial purchase includes AJ-SPX800 camera packages and AJ-PCD10 drives to be used for production at: KPAX-TV in Missoula, MT; KRTV-TV in Great Falls, MT; KOAA-TV in Pueblo, CO; and KVOA-TV in Tucson, AZ.

Plans are in place to convert both field acquisition and production at all Cordillera stations to P2 beginning in early 2006. The remaining seven stations are KSBY-TV in San Luis Obispo, CA; KATC-TV in Lafayette, LA; KBZK-TV in Bozeman, MT; KRIS-TV in Corpus Christie, TX; KTVQ-TV in Billings; MT, KXLF-TV in Butte, MT; and WLEX-TV in Lexington, KY.

For the past several years, the broadcast group has used Panasonic 25Mb/s DVCPRO equipment for newsgathering and 50Mb/s DVCPRO50 products for production.

All editing for production and news will be NLE-based. Production operations will use the Leitch VelocityQ system, and news will use the Leitch NEXIO Newsflash newsroom system.
