Scripps taps AFA
Scripps Networks has chosen A.F. Associates to move and expand the transmission-control-room and monitoring system at Scripps Networks' Knoxville, Tenn.-based origination facility.

The facility will be able to handle SDI and AES signals.
NMT takes two
Mobile-production-unit company National Mobile Television (NMT) now has exclusive access and management of twin 53-foot edit and transmission mobile trucks from Location Solutions by Keslow Television. The trucks are multi-standard and multi-format and can serve as complete broadcast facilities. NMT did not own any dedicated editing systems or transmission facilities, says President Jerry Gepner, so the deal rounds out the company's portfolio.
