Myrtle Beach, S.C.-based WFXB recently upgraded its station automation with the AIRO system from Digital Transaction Group and a 360 Systems Image Server 2000 video server. The station is now running a single analog channel with full automation instead of its old system that was used only for commercial insertion. The AIRO automation was originally developed by Odetics Broadcast, which was acquired by Digital Transaction Group.

Minimizing downtime and training were major issues for WFXB and upgrading to the AIRO system made the transition made for a smooth upgrade, said Bob LeClaire, the station's chief engineer. LeClaire, who is familiar with the audio servers from 360 Systems, is also pleased with the performance of that company's Image Server 2000, its first video product.
