WYES NEW ORLEANS ADDS PLURA BROADCAST MONITORS TO CONTROL ROOM, EDIT STATIONS.
PHOENIX, ARIZ., September 22, 2010 — PBS member station WYES-TV, which serves the New Orleans market (DMA #51), recently purchased several Plura Broadcast LCD monitors for use in its control room and edit stations. The station selected PBM-224-3G 24-inch panels for preview and program, as well as camera shading, during productions.
WYES is the parent company of YES Productions, a mobile production unit with two 53-foot HD production trucks. One of the 53-foot-long YES trucks has used two Plura PBM-124 monitors for two years. According to Dave Kennedy, engineer in charge for YES Productions, the Plura monitors provide very high resolution and produce very good blacks. The monitors in the station and truck were purchased through Crescent Communications, based in Kenner, La.
“We are pleased that WYES has decided to come back to Plura for monitors for the station’s critical monitoring applications,” said Ray Kalo, Plura president and CEO. “This reaffirms their satisfaction with the quality of our monitors. We look forward to continuing our mutually beneficial and long-term relationship with WYES.”
The new PBM-3G Series provides full 1080p/60 resolution with fast response time for smooth high-motion video. Available in 17, 20, 24, 32, and 46-inch display sizes, the LCD monitors offer an elegant, slim design with wide viewing angles, accurate color reproduction, and consistent high-quality pictures. Built-in functions include intelligent connection for calibration and alignment, adjustable colometry, and gamma correction, plus advanced waveform, vectorscope, time code display, various digital audio metering scales, and more powerful display functions. Plus, multiple monitors can be controlled by a centralized Wall Control System that can connect different sized monitors in any combination.
