Standards & Practices Audio / Video Delay

Recently the need for broadcasters to maintain control over their live on-air content has been underscored. Producers of live content programming require a cost-effective way of protecting the production and licensees from standards and practices violations or worse federally mandated fines. The Prime Image Pipeline is a cost effective way to maintain control over your on-air content via a variable 1-10 second audio video delay which can easily be set-up at Master control, in the studio, or at a remote location.
