    NBC moving network master to Denver

    Not related to the post, but if there is an initiative for fiber distribution for NewsChannel it hasn't happened yet.

    Nexstar to acquire Tribune

    Of course, when I made my original post, in my post-awakening grogginess I forgot that Tribune operates an MCR hub at WXIN/WTTV. If Nexstar decides to dump WISH they can transition the hub to the existing one at WXIN/WTTV.

    NBC moving network master to Denver

    It's the KU-band satellite system for program delivery for all affiliates that receive their network signal via satellite (as opposed to fiber). C-band is used as backup.

    NBC moving network master to Denver

    I also forgot to mention the TOC for Skypath, NBC's satellite distribution service for each of its affiliates has been at Dry Creek for awhile as well.

    NBC moving network master to Denver

    NBC's NOC will be run from 30 Rock until summer (barring delays). Dry Creek is shadowing 30 Rock and has been for some time, and previously was the backup to 30 Rock. Everything that is sent via fiber from Washigton is sent to to Dry Creek and New York. Telemundo's NOC is already at Dry Creek. Englewood Cliffs, NJ will serve as the backup for Dry Creek once it becomes the primary.

    Good to know. I've noticed a lot of Bitcentral's product pages have a lot of buzzwords that make it hard to understand exactly what each one does, LOL.

    Nexstar to acquire Tribune

    Considering WISH handles the master control for something like two dozen former LIN stations as well as traffic and some other internal operations for Nexstar, I find it very hard to believe they would be sold. That would be a lot of infrastructure to spread out among the stations, or find another one for the hub. But being Nexstar, anything for the bottom line.

    They do. It's called Create, and it's cloud-based (like how pretty much everything is going). I have a hunch we will buy Precis to get rid of ENPS.

    The station I work for eventually will be switching to Bitcentral for news video editing. I'm not sure what all programs we'll be getting as they offer quite a few, but it will be replacing Grass Valley Stratus and Edius as well as the K2 Summits (servers) used for ingest of footage from the field, from feeds, and playout through the control room. Bitcentral seems to be pretty standard nowadays. Currently footage edited on a timeline is sent via FTP to the playout servers, and I'm certain this workflow is going to get streamlined. Anybody have any first-hand experience with Bitcentral? Does it suck, or is it good?

    There is an Ohio capitol bureau based at WCMH that provides content for WCMH, WDTN, WTRF, WKBN, and probably WOWK, too.

    Question about Market/Network Dominance

    Not at all related to the thread, but I've always been fascinated by the vastness of the Denver DMA, and all the fragmented counties in Wyoming and Nebraska (Isn't there 1 county in Nevada that is also in the Denver DMA?). And on the 2017-18 Nielsen map Morrill County, Nebraska (white on the quoted map -- likely part of the Cheyenne-Scottsbluff DMA on that map) is also in the Denver DMA.

    A day in TV license court

    13 GBP is actually equivalent to 16-17 USD currently.

    Out & About

    Speaking of Mark Johnson, he posted that longtime WEWS meteorologist Don Webster died this morning.

    Nexstar to acquire Tribune

    When Sinclair kicked the tires at Tribune they absolutely marveled at their technology. Tribune designed their own master control automation (Brutus) as well as their own newsroom workflow (Opus), and probably some other things. Perhaps in due time Nexstar will incorporate them within their existing networks of stations. I'm sure it's cheaper than licensing out to AP or Florical, and anything to help out the bottom line is a win in Nexstar's book.

    Nexstar to acquire Tribune

    The reason MG-Nexstar took a year was because of the spectrum auction. IIRC, the divestitures for that were announced very early on. Even though that was a big merger it was fairly cut-and-dry.
