Centralized Multistation Operation with iTX Whitepaper by John Wadle, VP of Technology - iT-Based Systems, (GVB-1-0252B-EN-WP) File size: 1.9 MB, posted Mar 04 2019 About ten years ago, following the widespread deployment of master control automation systems in the US station market, the concept of centralized operation of multiple stations under common ownership was evaluated and, in several cases, deployed. The results of these initial multistation centralizations were mixed, and a primary objective of significantly lower operating costs was not always achieved since the resultant savings in manpower proved inadequate to offset the cost of the required communications links at 1990s' rates. Nevertheless, several of these centralized projects continue in operation today, and a few have been expanded or upgraded with newer technology. Overall, however, the anticipated substantial benefits of station group centralization have not been fully realized, and broadcasters continue to look for new models to improve their bottom line through reduced costs.
