KHQ ADOPTS CENTRALCASTING MODEL, UPGRADES MASTER CONTROL WITH ADVANCED BROADCAST SOLUTIONS

SEATAC, WA — For about three years, KHQ in Spokane, Wash. (DMA #75), had been relying on upconversion to deliver its HD content to audiences. With the help of premier systems integration firm Advanced Broadcast Solutions (ABS), the station upgraded its master control earlier this year to handle full HD – and converted the operation into a centralcasting hub for two other stations, KNDO and KNDU, as well as additional multiplexed channels serving the Yakima and the Tri-Cities (Kennewick, Pasco, and Richland) region in Washington (DMA #126).

The three NBC affiliates are owned by the KHQ Television Group, a subsidiary of Cowles Publishing Company. Each station also multicasts SWX Right Now, which provides local sports and weather coverage for Eastern Washington and Northern Idaho. The facility also handles master control for KGPX, an ION Media Networks station that is co-located at the facility but operated separately.

WAYNE, N.J. – With an infusion of fun and adventure in all the work he does, Paul Cronin specializes in high-speed, extreme-condition footage for his company, WhiteCap Video. The shoots for his high-end boat reviews require his keen sense of the elements along with gear that can face the tough conditions of humidity and temperature while capturing steady shots. Cronin counts on the Fujinon ZA17x7.6BE HD ENG lens on his Sony XDCAM HD PMW-500 camcorder and the Fujinon TS-P58A image stabilizer.

SILVERTON HIGH SCHOOL PROTECTS STUDENTS WITH JVC SURVEILLANCE CAMERAS, NVRS

WAYNE, NJ – For its first 12 years of occupancy, Silverton High School only had about 300 freshman on campus. Part of the Silver Falls School District in Silverton, Ore., the school was designed to be constructed in two phases. When a community bond was passed and the second phase was completed in 2009 – and the student population grew to 1,200 students – the administration installed dozens of JVC V.Networks VN-C215E4U indoor network dome and VN-C215VP4U vandal-proof outdoor dome cameras, which are monitored through JVC VR-N1600U network video recorders (NVRs).

While the bond advisory committee was resistant at first to spend money on such an expansive IP-based video surveillance system, the general feeling now is that is was money well spent. “We’ve solved everything from theft to assaults to vandalism,? explained Mark Hannan, principal of Silverton High. “It has been absolutely the best part of this project in more
