KPHO CBS, Phoenix, Arizona

In July 2009, AVDB was contracted to accomplish design build services for Meredith Broadcasting. The intent was to create a West coast hub at KPHO CBS in Phoenix that would house operations for KVVU Fox in Las Vegas, KPTV Fox 12 in Portland as well as KPDX PDX TV in Portland a “My Network” TV station.

AVDB Group worked directly with the Harris Broadcast division to assist in the implementation of the NetVX system and to ensure connectivity and functional operation with the three other stations. It was crucial that AVDB design a system that entailed triple redundancy for control as well as content to all three stations from the master hub here in Phoenix.

Engineering meetings were held weekly with Ed Williams, Chief Engineer at KPHO, along with Harris Technical Representation to ensure the project was on track and all issues were worked out prior to them occurring.

Products were utilized from the following manufactures: Avocent, Gefen, AJA, Harris Broadcast, ADC, TeleStreams, Evertz, Panasonic, Extron, Canare, TFT, Wohler, EEG, Wholer, RTS, Tandberg and Motorola.
