|– Arizona State Legislature (Government HD Broadcasting Upgrade)
The Arizona capital building houses the states senate and house of representatives. To accommodate contemporary broadcast standards, the existing standard definition system needed to be upgraded. To keep the cost of purchase and operation affordable, EAR and SEG worked with the Capital TV staff to design and install system wide upgrades to the existing broadcast center and hearing rooms with high definition cameras capable of reusing as much of the exiting infrastructure. Hearing rooms and the Senate/House floors were updated with new cameras and control systems centrally controlled by a small staff in the broadcast center. Also upgraded was a the existing analog broadcast distribution and wireless display systems.
|– ADOT (Enterprise government content creation, editing and media distribution)
With hundreds of office around the state, the Arizona Department of Transportation needs to create content for public education and motor vehicle related messaging daily. EAR designed and installed editorial, media management and digital signage systems around the state. The state-wide system is managed by a minimal internal staff from within the state’s private network from a web browser accessible secure server. EAR also integrated the customer service ticket system for each office to display “now serving” information. The system provides educational, emergency and customer care information and is saving the state money each year above and beyond system cost and operation.
| – JVMI Studios (Worldwide Faith based broadcast Facility)
Designed and installed by EAR, JVMI needed to upgrade an existing tape based facility with an all new a file based, news room style workflow. The existing manually intensive capture and editorial workflow was replaced with Avid iNews and Interplay media asset management. The project goal was to take a weekly program and increase the number of shows to fill a new daily schedule. The project launched “flawlessly” on time and under budget.
|-Surprise Ch 11 Broadcast Center
Equipment provider by EAR including robotic cameras,system routing and interface. Engineered by Jacob Abramson from CH11 and System Electronic Group and EAR. Great example of an HD refresh on a 10 year old broadcast environment for city government and educational channels. EAR can provide complete design and installation or just equipment and great advice.
|-Trivita (Public theater and HD Production facility)
Designed by EAR from the ground up, Trivita is a specially designed theater for public and private productions. The theater accommodates room for a studio audience and a state of the art HD production system that records and streams content worldwide for corporate messaging. The multi-robotic HD cameras are recessed for least possible working space and minimal visibility. One operator can do the work of multiple camera operators using real-time controls and presets. The system provides output to the theater projectors and live stream to the web. The theater pays for itself many times over each year by creating sales and marketing content for product sales worldwide.
|– Edward Jones (Corporate production facility)
With over 14,000 offices worldwide, Edward Jones creates corporate messaging for training and national network programming. EAR provided pre-sale consultation, systems design, installation and post sale support. The HD studio supports a fiber and private network connected multi-studio network capable of broadcast quality production. System design, installation and documentation by EAR, DMD, Sachs Electric and Edward Jones’ staff.
|– Arizona Cardinals (Professional Sports Editing and Media Management)
EAR provided the first non-linear editing system to an NBA team in 1996, and we’re still offering great value and state of the art systems to professional sports today. EAR has been providing editing and media management products to the Arizona Cardinals since 1990s. The Cardinals use a shared storage system with content management provided by, installed ans supported by EAR.
|– Cable One (National Media Distribution Systems)
New network based Telestream media distribution systems for ingest and processing of video content for 12 offices nationally. Install new servers, configure for content processing, delivery and billing across local and national fiber networks. EAR designed systems, integrated with existing digital media systems and managed installations. Project phases completed on time, on budget and with “national broadcast quality” results according to staff management.
|– City of Phoenix (City Council Chambers Robotic Camera/LED Lighting Design & Control)
The city of Phoenix is the largest metropolis in the Southwest. Like most larger cities they broadcast their city council meetings live and on demand via the internet. A special challenge to their operation was allowing control of their board meetings from the City Channel 11 studios located a block away and across the street. The only practical way to connect the two facilities was existing city fiber runs between the facilities. EAR provided management and installation, our partner SEG provided design engineering and support for the deployment. The fiber connectivity supports almost daily production including high definition video, audio and robotic camera control. The existing lighting in the main council chambers was replaced with LED fixtures resulting in a net cost savings due to decreased energy and reduced air-conditioning usage.
