WPMI chooses Sundance Digital's FastBreak Spot Play

When WPMI decided that it was time to update their commercial insertion system, Sundance Digital and Fastbreak Spot Play were brought in to assist.
AL installed two channels of Sundance FastBreak Spot Play and one prep station controlling a Seachange server in the Clear Channel NBC/UPN duopoly.
Tim Reid, WPMI’s Chief Engineer, said: "The system we had been using was no longer supported by its manufacturer. We talked to Sundance and were comfortable with them, so we went that way. Also, our sister station in Tulsa, KOKI-TV, helped blaze the trail with the FastBreak, so that was another plus.”
FastBreak Spot Play has been designed to combine powerful SQL-based database management functionality with tight control of the video server to manage the broadcast commercial insertion process in conjunction with a digital video server.
A typical FastBreak Spot Play system consists of a prep station to manage communication with the traffic software as well as the loading of material into the server, plus one or more air stations to handle playback of the spots.
Each air station is configurable for control up to four server output channels/playlists, and several air stations can be networked for further system expansion. Playback of each group of spots is typically GPI triggered by the Master Control operator. Additional prep stations can also be included for simultaneous recording of long and short-form content, or to dub from several locations within a facility.
FastBreak Spot Play supports multiple levels of redundancy, including a completely mirrored, fault-tolerant configuration.
Sundance Digital is a leading provider of cost-effective, high-performance broadcast automation solutions. With a strong commitment to technology and deep roots in all aspects of broadcasting, Sundance products are in use in broadcast facilities worldwide.
