Idaho Public TV Bursts Into HD

Denver-based systems integrator Burst will lead the upgrade of two HD production control rooms for Idaho Public Television.

Burst will be involved with equipment procurement and integration at two separate university campus studios: KUID, at the University of Idaho in Moscow, serving northern Idaho, and KISU, at Idaho State University in Pocatello, serving the eastern reaches of the Wilderness State.

The forthcoming HD digital control rooms are the first phase of a multi-year project that will impact equipment and facilities statewide; including field and editing, studio production facilities, Internet-related content and delivery, transmitters and repeaters and network operations center upgrades relating to the federal mandate and public trust for digital television, Burst said.

The project will begin this summer.
