WDIV turns to Sony DVS-9000 production switcher


The DVS-9000 integrates seamlessly with the multi-format MVS-8000, as well as with Sony's full line of production switchers.

WDIV in Detroit has installed a Sony DVS-9000 production switcher. Since the majority of WDIV's programming is news, accessibility to material and recall speed ranked high among the capabilities that the Post-Newsweek station was looking to enhance. The DVS-9000 integrates seamlessly with the multi-format MVS-8000, as well as with Sony's full line of production switchers. It shares the same control panels and control data systems. The DVS-9000 can be configured from two to four M/E banks (one to two M/E with the DVS-9000SF) in the processor frame, and multiple processors and panels can be connected on the same network, allowing for increased resource sharing and mission-critical redundancy.

Each M/E bank comes standard with four FineKey keyers with edge generators, four Chromakeyers and 14 dedicated wipe generators, including five transition generators.
