King World Productions has purchased and completed the installation of a range of Pro-Bel equipment as part of a complete digital upgrade of the Inside Edition West Coast Bureau. The company invested in a Pro-Bel Sirius 7 rack unit frame - configured with a 24x16 digital video layer and 16x16 analog layer and a 24x24 audio layer.
The company also installed a Pro-Bel Freeway RS-422 machine control system, which has the capability for 32 ports and a Freeway 32x32 time code router. The new Pro-Bel routing system has four control panels.
The decision to move the program from analog to digital, as well as the implementation of non-linear editing, prompted an overhaul of the West Coast facilities.
