ABS Completes TVW Facility Upgrade
Systems integration firm Advanced Broadcast Solutions has completed the facility design and equipment implementation for TVW, Washington State's public affairs network.

TVW a non-profit, cable television service headquartered in Olympia, Wash., recently moved into the upgraded 15,000 square-foot building where it can now provide increased Web streaming capability, multiple channel transmission, video-on-demand service, new methods of signal distribution and nonlinear editing.

ABS designed and implemented TVW's new technical operations center, which consists of a technical center with television equipment, as well as a streaming media center, IT, fiber network and telephony equipment; a 580-square-foot room for production and master control, with three separate areas for production and one for master control; three rooms on the second floor with nonlinear editing suites; a 1,850 square-foot studio on the first floor; and an audio production room.

"Our goal was to design a technical operation free from error-plagued or cumbersome tasks and one in which all technical employees can understand the data and workflow," said Mark Siegel, president of Advanced Broadcast Solutions. "Our aim was to provide TVW with a properly scaled facility with inherent room for growth."

ABS' role included working with TVW and its architect to determine the proper location and footprint of the technical center and control room. ABS also advised the architect regarding electrical and HVAC loading and design requirements, wire routing, sound abatement, lighting in the control room, and specialized treatment for ceilings, walls and floors. ABS was also responsible for working with the construction firm to ensure a smooth transition from the previous facility to the new location.
