Miranda + Scripps Networks... Vertigo Is Beneficial (Hardware)

[SatBroadcasting(tm)] Scripps Networks is introducing more streamlined graphics workflows across its popular specialty channels, namely HGTV, Food Network, DIY Network, Travel Channel, Cooking Channel and Great American Country, using a Vertigo XG graphics system from Miranda.

Scripps Networks’ facility in Knoxville, Tennessee, has just completed installation of 26 Vertigo XG graphics processors, as part of a project, which began in 2007 to upgrade the graphics capabilities for 14 SD and HD feeds. The first Scripps Networks channels to go on-air with the new graphics system were HGTV HD and Food Network HD, which allowed time to exercise new workflows. Deployment across other networks soon followed. With the recent acquisition of the Travel Channel, the Vertigo XG offered great flexibility for Scripps’ channel-branding requirements.
