WNYW-TV and WWOR-TV, the FOX O&Os in the New York City area, will convert their newsgathering operations to Panasonic’s P2 technology.
FOX Television’s owned-and-operated stations in New York City - WNYW-TV and WWOR-TV - are converting their news operations to the Panasonic DVCPRO P2 solid-state memory recording system.
The stations’ initial purchase includes a large amount of DVCPRO P2 equipment, including AJ-SPX800 cameras, AJ-SPD850 studio decks and AJ-PCD10 drives. The stations will begin the conversion of their news operations to DVCPRO P2 in March. Currently, WNYW-TV produces 38 hours of news programming weekly and WWOR-TV produces seven hours a week of news programming.
DVCPRO P2 will enable WNYW-TV and WWOR-TV to implement new, cost-effective workflow processes to speed up newsgathering and deliver the news faster to viewers.
The P2 system offers nonlinear acquisition and instant access to material, high-speed file transfer, laptop field editing without the need for proxy videos, and compatibility with off-the-shelf data storage drives for archiving, while eliminating traditional digitizing and ingesting operations.
