SEATAC, WA - Professional video and audio systems integration firm ABS (Advanced Broadcast Solutions) today announced that KMVT-TV, the CBS affiliate serving Twin Falls, Idaho (DMA #191), has updated its control room with a Ross Carbonite production switcher, XPression CG, and BlackStorm playout server. The gear was purchased through ABS in March and was the final step of the station's migration to local HD news production.
According to Chris Pruitt, KMVT general manager, the new switcher and CG replaced a 20-year-old Grass Valley switcher and aging Pinnacle Deko and Scala graphics systems. Prior to the new server, video packages were played to air through an NLE system. KMVT chief engineer Shawn Butler installed the new equipment, which went live on April 9.
"We are more than pleased with the entire system," said Pruitt. "ABS was extremely helpful as they evaluated our needs, understood our goals, and then recommended the gear that would accomplish our goals while staying within budget."
