“The garage is equipped with air conditioning, an insulated door, plenty of storage for tools, as well as refrigerator hookups and a painted sealed floor, making it the perfect mans-cave,? explained Smith. “The garage has also been hard wired for a wall mounted TV, so we needed a way to allow for dual viewing of HDTV in the living room and the garage.?

LAKESHORE PUBLIC TV MONITORS MULTIPLE SOURCES IN NEW HD MASTER CONTROL WITH PLURA BROADCAST

PHOENIX, ARIZ.– Lakeshore Public Television, a PBS member station based in Merrillville, Ind., has made monitoring dozens of video signals easier in its new HD master control room with Plura Broadcast, a leading manufacturer of high-end professional LCD monitors for studio and field use. Three Plura PBM-147 47-inch LCD monitors are positioned side-by-side in separate equipment racks and controlled through a multi-image processor, which saves space in the facility and eliminates the need for individual monitors for each source.

But unlike most public broadcasters, Lakeshore PTV emphasizes local news and sports coverage. As a result, the station’s master control features a high number of satellite sources that need to be monitored.

Henry Ruhwiedel, Lakeshore PTV chief engineer, said the Plura monitors provide excellent resolution and no visible artifacts, plus more
