With NAB just around the corner, many companies have announced new automation products and sales. Here is a summary of some of the releases crossing the Broadcast Engineering editorial desks this week.
- The Belo stations are converting the news and automated playout areas at several company O&Os to a Grass Valley digital news production system. The installations will be supported with the new Grass Valley K2 media server and media client from Thomson.
- KGW, the Belo-owned NBC affiliate in Portland, OR, is currently using two K2 media server clusters to support program and commercial playout for both its NTSC and digital television channels. The station is also distributing local weather programming and commercial insertions on its WeatherPlus channel with a K2 server.
