WQPT PBS Quad-Cities Receives New Master Control Rack

MACOMB/Moline, IL – – It’s a BIG day for WQPT PBS, Western Illinois University’s public television station, with the exciting delivery of a new Master Control rack. This state-of-the-art equipment is a significant upgrade for the station, representing a new central hub that will manage and coordinate all signals, programming and broadcast elements to ensure seamless and high-quality transmission of television.

The Master Control rack is integral to operations, handling everything from signal routing to ensuring that our programming reaches viewers with the highest possible quality.

The installation and integration of the new Master Control rack will be carried out over the next few weeks, during which WQPT will ensure minimal disruption to the regular broadcast schedule.
