At NAB, Doyle Technology Consultants unveiled its multichannel master control solution, designed to address management requirements of ATSC data streams. This system combines Doyle’s systems integration with technology innovations from leading industry players NVISION and Sundance Digital.
According to John Hartwell, CTO at Doyle Technology Consultants, "The business and operations of broadcasting are changing, from the present simple management of signal flow to the management of information delivery in data formats. The tried-and-true methods employed in monitoring a NTSC transmission, mainly percent of modulation, will need to be augmented with the monitoring of the used and available data space in the ATSC transmission."
The master control includes an integrated signal management and master control engine built around NVISION’s new NV5128-MC Master Control/Multiformat Routing Switcher. In addition to 128 system inputs, this system provides mixing, keying and voice-over capabilities, as well as built-in squeezeback and a logo store. Also included is a Titan automation system from Sundance Digital, designed for multichannel, server-based broadcast facilities. The system’s graphical user interface (GUI) allows easy monitoring and control of playlists. The Doyle solution will also be usable with Sundance Digital’s FastBreak Automation systems.
