WSHM-TV, the CBS affiliate in Springfield, MA, is now on the air with a Grass Valley Ignite automated production system.
The system can be operated by one user, can handle the entire production, and has enabled the station to add more than six hours of local news coverage each week to its programming schedule.
The Ignite system works with the station’s four M-Series servers (eight playout ports) inside an existing office building in Springfield. Signals are sent to a master control facility in Hartford, via a dedicated fiber-optic link.
