The Outdoor Channel Selects Harris HD automation

TOC is using the ADC-100 to manage and playout content and to integrate promotional announcements, interstitials and logos.

The Outdoor Channel (TOC) is using Harris automation solutions for its new high-definition network, Outdoor Channel 2 HD, which is scheduled to launch July 1.

TOC is using the ADC-100 automation system for the management and playout of content and the integration of promotional announcements, interstitials and logos. Within the system configuration is the Harris Air Client, which provides broadcast operators with a dedicated interface to the device server, allowing flexibility in on-air control.

Through this interface, an operator can receive real-time updates and streamline basic functions. In addition, the system for TOC includes the Harris Media Client, which oversees the cataloging, dubbing and timing of material for playout.

In October 2005, TOC plans to integrate its east and west coast feeds of the channel into the Harris automation system, which will occur in conjunction with the channel's move to its new broadcast facility.
