Megahertz puts the finishing touches on new etv center

Systems integration specialists Megahertz Broadcast Systems has recently completed the design and integration of two final control centers for etv's Johannesburg operation.

The two centers, identical in design, use Quartz QMC master control, complete with DVE, logo store, downstream keyer and a QMC-FS control panel.

It also employs a 128x128 SDI/analog audio router interfacing with a Harris automation system. The system drives an Omneon video server for the ingest and playout of all program titles, commercials and stings. Other sources include a character generator, an on-air clock and two local VTRs.

The new control centers are part of an ongoing upgrade to the Johannesburg Studio Complex.

Megahertz also supplied all custom made desks and monitor stacks.
