Cordillera Communications, the owner of 11 television stations throughout the United States, has selected Harris automation solutions for a centralization project in Montana, California and Colorado.
To increase operational efficiency among three Montana stations, Cordillera is establishing a central hub at KXLF-TV, a full-power station in Butte. At the hub, content will be ingested, prepared and distributed to another full-power station, KBZK-TV in Bozeman, and a low-power station, KXLH-TV, in Helena. Harris will provide ADC playout automation, digital ingest and satellite ingest solutions.
At KOAA-TV in Colorado Springs, CO, Harris will upgrade an existing ADC system to automate playout of an independent weather channel that is operated by the station as well as regular programming. The upgraded ADC system is being configured so that Cordillera can add new revenue streams in the future.
At KSBY-TV in San Luis Obispo, CA, Cordillera selected Harris to provide a new ADC-100 system. Harris also will provide on-site installation and training.
