Suburban Community Channels Serves Local Viewers with Tightrope Media Systems

New master control center, production truck benefit from multichannel scheduling and playout, slo-mo instant sports replay

ST. PAUL, MINNESOTA, July 10, 2014 — Many Community TV broadcasters across the United States rely on Tightrope Media Systems to simplify multichannel scheduling and playout, but one Minneapolis-area broadcaster is leveraging the full Tightrope portfolio to establish meaningful community connections beyond master control.

Suburban Community Channels has been the Community TV and media resource connection for the northeast Minneapolis/St. Paul suburbs for more than 30 years, delivering 17 physical channels from its facility. As the local cable franchise authority for Comcast, the PEG broadcaster delivers eight channels of programming across 12 municipalities, including discrete government channels for each community. Suburban Community Channels populates its remaining channels with a variety of imported and locally produced content, the latter of which includes live broadcasts of high school sports.

Suburban Community Channels relies on solutions across Tightrope’s portfolio to manage all content. In master control, Tightrope Cablecast server and automation solutions cost-efficiently deliver high-quality programming to Comcast viewers, simultaneously serving on-demand content to online viewers. Cablecast has played a significant role for the core master control operation, cost-efficiently transitioning Suburban Community Channels from analog to SDI digital while establishing an HD-ready future. On July 16, “On Location TV19” will become the first channel in the cluster to transition to HD.

“It was clear we needed to rebuild master control from the day I was hired,” said Michael Simonds, technical lead for Suburban Community Channels. “We had a 25-year old system based on old analog composite video equipment and relay machine control, along with a massively sized router and automation system. Cablecast quickly and cleanly transitioned us to a digital environment while introducing a large number of operational efficiencies—not to mention returning real estate to our master control center. Tightrope clearly has the community media market in mind for product development, and understands the challenges we face.”

Many of the new operational efficiencies are tied to centralized workflows. Operators can connect to the central Cablecast server from any location with web access, and schedule programming weeks in advance; or make scheduling changes on the fly. Cablecast also allows Suburban Community Channels to quickly add new channels and applications, the most recent of which was a video-on-demand service that offers city council meetings on the website of its member municipalities.

Additionally, Tightrope Carousel digital signage solutions support transitional broadcast feeds, including bulletin boards between programs. The Carousel systems also deliver a bright and lively mix of rotating informational programming for visitors and employees inside its lobby areas, providing an additional public-facing benefit for establishing community connections.

On board its production truck, the broadcaster uses a Tightrope ZEPLAY solution for slo-mo instant replay of highlights from varsity football and other local high school sporting events. ZEPLAY allows production personnel to quickly trigger exciting replays and build highlight packages for viewers who follow local high school sports at home. Adding ZEPLAY to the infrastructure allows the production staff to operate across the workflow with more freedom by eliminating the more labor-intensive replay processes of the past.

“Tightrope makes their equipment very accessible, with no special software or training required to learn their products. The user experience is really much better than competitive products, and that is especially true of ZEPLAY,” said Simonds. “For live sports production, having four inputs and four outputs means that our operators don’t need to do any more intensive switching. We’re no longer doing the old school method of following the puck or the ball and switching angles in real-time. The ZEPLAY records every angle, and we can assemble what we need to enhance our sports programming. It has simplified our live productions dramatically—just as Cablecast has simplified our master control operations.”

About Tightrope Media Systems
Founded in 1997, Tightrope Media Systems is the pioneer of web-centric digital signage and broadcast automation systems. It provides station automation, video servers, internet video on demand, live streaming, the Carousel Digital Signage system, and ZEPLAY, a multi-channel instant replay machine for stadiums, arenas and Outside Broadcast vehicles. Tightrope’s award winning systems are used throughout the world. You can reach Tightrope Media Systems at (866) 866-4118 or visit them on the web at http://www.trms.com.

D-Tools Announces No-Cost FreeTools PSL™ Application Featuring Industry-specific Symbol Libraries for Microsoft® Visio

Free D-Tools application provides Microsoft® Visio users with multiple industry-specific plan view shape libraries to improve communication and project documentation.

CONCORD, CA and LAS VEGAS, NV - INFOCOMM 2014 BOOTH #C8318—JUNE 18, 2014 — D-Tools Inc., the worldwide leader in system-integration software, today announces the availability of FreeTools PSL™, a new system design companion application available to the entire electronic systems integration community free of charge. FreeTools PSL (Professional Symbol Library) is a free D-Tools application that provides Microsoft® Visio users with multiple libraries of industry-specific plan view symbols and Visio drawing templates that make it easier to create system designs using universally accepted industry standards. Once implemented, users can utilize three different stencil libraries within FreeTools PSL based on industry standards including AVC (Audio-Video-Control), Security, and Custom. By utilizing these libraries and incorporating industry standard symbols into the system design and documentation process, electronic systems integrators using Visio will more clearly communicate with customers and project partners across trades. Moreover, they will also be able to universalize a project, which not only simplifies reading design documentation; it streamlines projects and increases efficiency and accuracy.

The FreeTools PSL application is a plug-in that is compatible with Visio 2007 to Visio 2013 and consists of plan view Visio stencils and Visio drawing templates. Now available, FreeTools PSL includes three Symbol Libraries that contain associated stencils: Audio-Video-Control, Security, and Custom. The AVC (Audio-Video-Control) stencils are a based on the J-STD-710 symbols created by a joint committee from CEDIA, CEA and InfoComm. The Security stencils are based on the SIA Architectural Graphic Standard, and the Custom stencils contain useful electronic system symbols such as wire, text call out, and a Universal dimension shape. Additional FreeTools symbols (such as Fire/Safety and Electrical) will be available soon. The FreeTools PSL app serves as both an enhancement and a gateway for Visio users who have yet to dedicate resources to D-Tools or other system design and documentation platforms.

“Established universal industry standards are an important component of successful drawing designs and technical projects. Not only do they create uniformity within any given project, they also provide clear communication and a higher level of professionalism,” stated Adam Stone, president of D-Tools. 

Integrators utilizing industry standard symbols, stencils and graphics for their system design work deliver needed clarity and consistency to project partners and cross-functional teams. They also are provided the opportunity to compete for bids at a higher level, earn and maintain project access, streamline processes, and boost their bottom line. Moreover, drawings created in FreeTools PSL can be integrated into D-Tools’ System Integrator, providing users of the company’s flagship product with a way to visually share ideas with clients and partners, then bring those drawings into the System Integrator workflow for further project design and management.

“By implementing industry standard symbols into their system design work, electronic systems integrators are provided an effective means for producing professional-looking, easily recognized proposals and design documentation that allows their firm to compete at a higher level and win more bids,” stated D-Tools president, Adam Stone. “Not only does standardization provide extensive value to every entity involved in a given installation, it will soon become a requirement. Essentially, D-Tools provides integrators a leg-up on their competition by encouraging the early adoption of industry standardized drawing shapes.”
