Boxes galore is what you will see when you walk into the Al Roker Television Studio these days. Our installers are hard at work in the control room and the rack room installing new our new high definition equipment.
The first thing that was installed in the studio were some cables.
Take a look at the list of wires installers are using to figure out where each go in the studio (crazy confusing huh?).
After the cables are installed new equipment like the Ross Carbonite switcher, Xpression Graphics system, new Ikegami HD cameras will be installed and setup. New mounts for the monitors and wireless technology for the IFB and headsets will be installed as well.
Moving onto our new and improved rack room, better known as the “brains” of the new studio. In the rack room we have; Ross Xpression, Grass Valley playback system and a Tightrope media server that lets us schedule shows to play during the day or play reruns.
Stay tuned next week and keep up with our progress right here until the end of October!
