FOX transitions to digital with Avid systems

Six FOX stations are now converting to Avid digital production environments

FOX Television is converting six of its 27 news-generating stations from analog-based systems to Avid digital production environments.

The six stations are:

  • WNYW-TV, New York City;
  • WTXF-TV, Philadelphia;
  • WFXT-TV, Boston;
  • WTTG-TV, Washington DC;
  • WTVT-TV, Tampa, FL;
  • WITI, Milwaukee.

Installation at all six stations is expected to be completed by the end of 2005.

The stations will mirror WOFL-TV’s facility in Orlando, which includes an Avid Unity for News shared-storage media network with 8.64TB of storage and TransferManager and Media Manager software; Avid NewsCutter Adrenaline systems and NewsCutter XP systems for craft news and field editing; AirSpeed systems for ingest and playout of digital content; and Avid Media Composer Adrenaline systems for editing and finishing promotions.

WOFL installed its all-digital Avid production environment in May.
