Turner Broadcasting Systems Selects NVISION’s NV5100MC

Turner
Broadcasting Systems has installed NVISION’s NV5100MC Multi-Channel
Master Control Switching Systems for its major television services, which
includes TNT HD, TBS HD, TBS east and west, Cartoon Network and Atlanta’s Peachtree
TV.
Turner
developed a master control model that could be replicated for its numerous
channels. The requirements for the model included mirrored back-up
capability under automation control, with the option to go to full
manual-switcher operation as required; increased audio channels, including Dolby
E processing capability for HD content with surround sound; integration
of external graphics, along with insertion of closed captioning and other
services, without disrupting program delivery; and due to limited space,
compact master control switcher panels that fit Turner’s existing model for
control room consoles.
“NVISION’s
NV5100 master control met all our operational criteria and they worked with us
to tailor their design to fit our space limitations,” says Bob Peck, Senior
Project Manager, Broadcast Technology and Operations, at TBS.
“We also
wanted to ensure our operators could preview events as they are being built,
and without interfering with the automation. The NV5100 was a solution for
this,” says Peck.
