KAIL-TV Upgrades Fresno Facilities

NVerzion, a leading provider of cutting-edge tools for digital broadcasting and television station automation, has announced that KAIL-TV in Fresno, California, has upgraded its facilities to include the latest NCompass software platform to complement the station's NVerzion playout automation software system.
The upgrade allows KAIL-TV to manage automatically the processing and playout of file-based content received through content delivery systems like Pitch Blue and Pathfire. The expansion, which also included upgrading the existing Harmonic video server for added storage, was performed by NVerzion without disrupting KAIL-TV's normal, day-to-day operations.
KAIL-TV has relied on NVerzion's automation technology and expertise since 2007. NVerzion has provided the station with a stable, reliable system capable of delivering master control commercial and program playout for two independent on-air transmission channels. The latest upgrade with NCompass combines with the previously installed components to manage, record, and segment the program content from sources such as Pathfire and Pitch Blue, based on user-defined rules. The NCompass software manages ingest of incoming files and converts them instantly for editing or simple turnaround for playout with minimal human intervention, thus saving valuable resources for the station.
NCompass enables the processing and playout of content by efficient management of program metadata. The broadcast operator can choose and move specific content from different delivery systems simply by dragging and dropping the desired content to the preferred destination or by creating a set of configurable, predefined rules. Additionally, the NCompass software is configured to move data from the delivery system to the Carbon Coder transcoding engine, then directly to the Harmonic playout server.
"The NCompass software platform has provided us with the necessary tools for an efficient, automated workflow, enabling us to deliver 24/7 automated programming for our high-definition on-air channels, while keeping costs at the minimum," said Tom Driggers, consulting engineer at KAIL-TV. "At a time when station resources are limited, yet deployment of new technology is crucial for business success, NVerzion's simple, easy-to-use technology ensures flawless broadcast operations at an affordable price-point."
