The Station of the Cross Goes Digital

Written by on February 17, 2022

The Station of the Cross has officially gone digital.

Founders Jim and Joanne Wright and the board of directors approved a new initiative to revamp and migrate a 100% analog infrastructure to a completely digital AoIP network operations center. The transformation came to fruition under the leadership of Bill Havas and Michael Buttino, who oversee the technical operations and engineering departments, and through the guidance of Rob Goldberg, founder and CEO of RadioDNA, which provided onsite services, installations and training. RadioDNA continues to provide critical ongoing remote support. “This project involved upgrading two live production studios and facilities in our computer rack room,” said Jim Wright.

The operation includes the “virtual studio,” using a Wheatstone Glass LXE user interface. A producer, who works remotely, dials into and runs the show; his hosts are also remote, connected by codec to the site in Buffalo, so the entire production is done remotely.

This two-year migration to a fully digital platform has propelled The Station of the Cross to current digital industry standards and sets it apart as a pioneer in Catholic media programming,” Wright said.
