TV Pro Gear Radio Clients

TV Pro Gear is a technological leader in the development of Radio Broadcast Media as evidenced by the projects listed below:

  • TV Pro Gear was chosen to design and build the on-ship Radio station for the Navy’s newest aircraft carrier, the USS Gerald Ford. Scheduled to launch in 2015, the carrier is the first entirely new design in forty years. The on-ship radio station includes an integrated on-air suite, with a combined editing facility. Because space considerations were extremely limited, we provided three unique streams with different formats that originate from the same automation suite provided by our partners from Arrakis-Systems. The cutting edge leader in Radio Automation and analog or digital broadcast consoles.

  • When Jeff Pearce at WYLF Radio, New York decided to pull the trigger on a complete Broadcast Automation, billing and programming suite; the experts at TV Pro Gear and Arrakis-systems made it a painless process. To meet the clients needs, the entire integration process was completed within a 72 hour timeframe.

  • Lightning devastated the transmission facility for Pollack Broadcasting’s AM & FM co-located facility near Memphis TN. Working with Broadcast Electronics, TV Pro Gear developed a solution, removed old equipment and installed all new AM & FM transmission equipment putting both stations back on the air within 5 days.

  • Building stations from scratch is an art and a science. Building two simultaneously can be compared to herding cats! TV Pro Gear painlessly made infrastructure improvements, consulted two format changes, installed two new studios and trained all personnel inside of a one month window. This project for KHOM-FM and it’s sister station KBMV-FM met and exceeded Tom Ladd’s expectations. An ambitious project with a thrilling conclusion!

  • Rock and Roll front man Scott Gerkin (Modern Day Zero) called upon the experts at TV Pro Gear to develop his wildly successful on-line radio effort, Scott had limited space and little time for a fully functional, state of the art, six position all digital talk studio and producer pit. TV Pro Gear came through again!

The Integration Process

TV Pro Gear is the most thorough broadcast systems integrator around. You won’t find anybody more capable or willing to guide through every process of designing and building a customized system. Our broadcast system integrations specialists follow a 6-step process outlined below.

Step 1: Needs Analysis, Scope of Work, Workflow and Budget

TV Pro Gear’s radio systems specialists meet with you to conduct a “Needs Analysis” in order to have a clear understanding of your goals. From this information, we generate “Scope of Work” document. Next we our CAD program to create a “Workflow” document. Once this is completed we are able to make a detailed equipment list and budget.

Step 2: Design

After signing a System Integration Contract, our engineers create detailed CAD drawings, rack elevations and patch panel assignments for your approval. Once the design is approved we begin building your system.

Step 3: System Build

Once Design and Engineering is finalized, our purchasing staff orders all of the components for your system. Prior to installation, each piece of equipment is tested to make sure it is functioning flawlessly. Only the highest quality wire and connectors are used to build your system. Ever wire is labeled at both ends with a source, destination and CAD reference number permanent label. All cables are dressed in according to military standards and specifications.

Step 4: Installation and Testing

After the wiring phase is completed, our engineers begin the configuration and testing process. Every cable, connector and component is tested and documented to certify that it meets specifications. Every TVPG system is accompanied by comprehensive “As Built” documentation and drawings.

Step 5: Training and Support

Unlike other broadcast video system integrators, TV Pro Gear™ will not leave it up to you to figure out how to operate your new system. Our expert team provides thorough training, and we won't stop teaching until you're finished learning.

How to Insure You Send Out The Highest Quality Audio Stream

Of course audio quality is always important no matter what the form of content distribution. However, achieving the highest possible quality when streaming broadcast audio to the Internet is demanding. There are a few things you need to know to make your stream as good as possible.

First of all, bandwidth is a limiting factor. Listeners with fast connections to the Internet will have sharper audio and smoother latency than listeners with slower Internet connections. While you cannot control your listeners’ connection to the Internet, there are things you can do that will ensure that they get they best audio quality possible given the speed of their connection.

Audio must be compressed in order to transmit it over the Internet. All audio is not created equal. Music and natural voice has dynamic differences in the processing requirements to set your Radio Station apart. This is called “air-chain”. TV Pro Gear will maximize the quality of your air-chain, always making your broadcast sound “bigger” than it really is.
