ENG CONTROL
12 / 40

ENG CONTROL: It is also where the ENG (electronic news gathering) feeds are controlled. When it is necessary to receive a microwave feed from outside the station, an operator uses remote controls to operate the several microwave dishes that are located on the tower or at our remote relay sites. By aiming the dishes at the live trucks (and having the live truck operators aim the transmit dishes at the station) a high quality video path can be established. The station is connected to the "outside world" via fiber connections as well.  The engineering staff coordinates the many feeds that are received or sent out from the station.  These feeds may be connected to Philadelphia, CNN in Atlanta, GA, Harrisburg, or many other locations.
