WKYC-TV Taps DNF Controls for HD Facility

WKYC-TV in Cleveland has installed two DNF Controls ST300-SRP Sports Controllers and an ST300-SSM Slow-Motion Controller in its new HD control room for use during televised broadcasts from Jacobs Field, home of the Cleveland Indians.

The two controllers give WKYC operators control of the facility's existing video servers and provide highlight playback and slow-motion instant replay capabilities. Once action is captured, game footage is recorded onto Panasonic AJ-HD1200A and Sony HDW-2000M videotape recorders controlled by the ST300-SSM.

The ST300-SRP controller supports simultaneous record and playback, which means WKYC operators can record on-the-field action even after cutting away to commercials and create clips from multiple cameras for different angles of the same event. Both models feature a T-bar that provides speed control for slow-motion play-out.
