Score TV Goes With Thomson

The Score Television Network, a national 24-hour sports channel based in Toronto, Canada, has ordered several digital production products from Thomson.

The network will add 10 Grass Valley FeedClip systems and six Grass Valley News Edit nonlinear editing systems. The upgrade will allow Score to reduce the time-to-air of its highlights from six to roughly three minutes. The equipment will also facilitate the production of more than 20 hours of highlight programming and sports news per day.

Score will operate the NewsEdit systems on a local Fiber/LAN at its 12,000 square-foot facility in Toronto. By replacing its current editors with the NewsEdit and FeedClip systems, the network expects to nearly double its current output of roughly 40 one- to three-minute projects from each of its suites per broadcast day.

The Score Television Network serves 5.5 million cable and satellite TV viewers across Canada.
