WBOC-TV, a CBS affiliate based in Salisbury, Maryland, and operator of Channel 16 and Fox21 Delmarva, purchased the new Klotz g2 audio platform for their studio upgrade from Forward Tech US, Klotz Communications’ distributor for the U.S. market.
The g2 audio engine, ordered in a 48 in/24 out configuration, includes a comprehensive DSP farm including audio delay, 6-band parametric EQ, and dynamic processing (Limiter, Compressor, Expander) and communicates via IP networking with their new Grass Valley Ignite system. The system at WBOC-TV has the capacity to grow to 144 inputs and outputs by adding additional analog or digital sources and destinations at any time.
“The installation went more smoothly and quickly than I could have asked for and was done well within our window of studio time available,” said Bob Guzman, director of engineering at WBOC-TV. “There was also very little required of our engineering staff to complete the project. Forward Tech did a fantastic job.”
“The new g2 engine is working with both WBOC’s original version 6 and upgraded version 10 Ignite systems,” said Henry Ramos, president of Forward Tech US. “We conducted staff training and everyone was happy to see that the Klotz workflow they knew remained the same. They also gained finer control of compression and EQ controls readily available in their new g2 engine.”
