WCAV-TV Upgrades Automation System with Sundance Digitals TitanHighly-scalable Titan automation suite to drive multi-channel operation (March 16, 2006)
Broadcasting three networks, CBS, ABC and Fox, from one master control can be a daunting task with no room for sub-par systems. So when Tim Free, Chief Engineer at WCAV-TV in Charlottesville had to upgrade his automation system he opted for a new Titan configuration from Sundance Digital.
WCAV-TV, the CBS affiliate for the Charlottesville market shares technical facilities with Fox outlet WAHU and ABCs WVAW. Free chose a highly-scalable Titan automation suite to drive the multi-channel operation. The package also includes Sundance Digital's NewsLink - a no-compromise automation solution for competitive live newscasts, and Intelli-Sat Broadcast Record Manager. In addition, the Company customized code to provide character generator interfaces for CGS Infographics automation and Inca Studio.
"Titan is meeting our goals for reliability and redundancy. It's working excellently," said Free. "The system has helped us increase our staff's productivity and the service and support from Sundance has been great.
Six channels of the Leitch Nexio server system, three primary and three backup fall under Titan control, as well as Inscriber Inca Stations, tape transports and satellite receivers.
