On July 22nd, 2016, SBE Chapter 36 toured the new KNSD/Comcast NBC plant on Granite Ridge Drive in San Diego.
They showed off:
- Ross automation assist production room with extensive multiviewers,
- A news studio with Ross robotics,
- Spacious server room with computer flooring and hot and cold aisle HVAC
- Big maintenance shop with conference room outfitted with multiviewers
- Newsroom with assignment desk in the round
All sales, news, and administrative personnel operated in shared space divided by cubicles with acoustic ceilings and shared offices available for private phone calls.
Many thanks to KNSD Director of Technology and Operations Dave MacKinnon for setting this up for us, and to Ross for lunch pizza. We had such great response, the group was divided into two dates.
