BeckTV Partners With TEGNA to Launch Hub-and-Spoke Master Control Facility

BeckTV, a premier systems integrator for the broadcast media industry, has completed another high-profile project for one of its major U.S. clients — station group TEGNA Inc. TEGNA has partnered with BeckTV to design, install, and integrate all systems for TEGNA's centralized new master control operation, the TEGNA Stream Center, based on an innovative cloud-based hub-and-spoke approach that will serve all TEGNA stations.

One of the largest local television station groups in the U.S., TEGNA owns 64 television stations in 51 markets. Upon completion, TEGNA's new master control hub in Charlotte, North Carolina, will support more than 225 channels across the country, with more than 50 spoke-racks deployed at distributed locations. More than 500 originating multicast streams traverse a private LAN to facilitate monitoring and operation of all stations.

"With the growth of our company and station lineup over the last several years, it was time to build a next-generation technology infrastructure that could support our current and future needs," said Bill Nardi, VP of station operations, TEGNA. "Thanks to our longstanding partnership with BeckTV, we knew they would be the perfect choice to help us take on this project. BeckTV has been instrumental in helping us build the TEGNA Stream Center, a best-in-class master control facility that creates streamlined workflows through a centralized operation."

"The TEGNA Stream Center is a technologically advanced master control design and workflow system," said Brendan Cline, director of engineering, BeckTV. "We believed we could collaborate to design and implement the best hub in the country, and we are humbled to have been chosen to execute yet another large broadcast integration for TEGNA. This has been an extensive project to date and one that reinforces our long-standing relationship."

Nardi added, "BeckTV has been a key member of our team for many years. In 2017, they provided support during and in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey in Houston and helped us create a new state-of-the-art facility there. Their engineering expertise, collaborative design and engineering approach, and commitment to be a partner rather than just a vendor have only strengthened our trust in Fred Beck and his team."

TEGNA's hub-and-spoke master control approach with the TEGNA Stream Center enables group-wide monitoring and abundant multicast streaming over the TEGNA private WAN. Further advantages include redundancy of all systems to prevent internet connectivity and equipment failures, and design homogeneity across a spectrum of station types and requirements.

To build the TEGNA Stream Center facility in Charlotte, BeckTV has integrated state-of-the-art equipment from leading manufacturers. These include Evertz baseband and IP routing and control systems; Crispin automation control system, file ingest, and distribution systems; a Harmonic master control playback server, graphics system, and switcher; TSL hub audio monitoring equipment; and a Clear-Com IP-based intercom.

Mo-Sys takes virtual production to a truer focus Posted: 20/04/2021
Mo-Sys takes virtual production to a truer focus

Mo-Sys Engineering, world leader in precision camera tracking solutions for virtual production, has solved a major creative limitation when using an LED volume for virtual production. Cinematographers who needed to pull focus between real foreground objects – such as actors – and virtual objects displayed on an LED wall – such as a car - have been unable to do this as the lens focal plane stops at the LED wall, meaning the car always remains out of focus.
