WV Media Selects Nverzion for Content Sharing

West Virginia Media Group, a Charleston, W.V.-based station group has chosen turnkey hardware and software automation technology from Nverzion to fully automate the acquisition, transmission, near-line storage and sharing of content between its stations.

In addition to automating its CBS affiliate WTRF-TV in Wheeling-Steubenville, W.V., Nverzion provided a complete package for WV Media’s NBC affiliate, WBOY-TV in Clarksburg-Morgantown, W.V., as well as expanded their existing Nverzion automation systems at another CBS affiliate, WOWK-TV 13 in Charlestown-Huntington, W.V. and their Fox affiliate, WVNS-TV 59 in Beckley-Bluefield, W.V.

By implementing and configuring Nverzion’s XPansion distributive and asset management applications paired with TeraStore near-line digital storage solutions, WV Media can now share and distribute common national content between all stations via real-time ftp.

WV Media’s suite of applications include Nverzion’s NControl MC standard master control switcher software package, Ncontrol playlist for Webcasting, an NConvert traffic interface and Nverzion’s NFire pathfire interface. These tools will allow WV Media stations to dub, segment, edit and schedule broadcast material while managing video servers, VTRs, master control switchers, multiplexers, character generators, cart machines, storage systems, logo inserters, still stores, router, and more.
