RNN owns and operates a fully digital and industry leading production facility. With several studios, control rooms, post production, master control, satellite facilities, and a large and dynamic news production team, it is the region's leading technical facility of its kind.
Launched in June 2009, RNN provides an end-to-end solution for editorial, production and all physical resources necessary to produce two 24-hour news networks. RNN provides FiOS1 viewers with local, regional, national and international news, plus sports, weather and traffic reports. RNN has partnered with Verizon to use the latest technological advances in wireless and television production to reinvent how news is gathered, produced and delivered to residents of Long Island and New Jersey. RNN also produces content and master controls two FiOS1 channels for the Potomac region for Verizon FiOS (Washington DMA).
RNN employs a vast team of reporters, videographers and producers to cover regional and hyper-local news content throughout the Tri-State New York region. All of our field staff is equipped with trend-setting ENG equipment giving them the ability to go live from anywhere in broadcast quality without the need of a satellite or microwave truck. This is accomplished by the utilization of EVDO and video compression technology.
RNN provides 24/7 full-service master control and trafficking services from our facility in Rye Brook, NY. The facilities include full-time generator backup, redundant building power from separate municipalities, state-of-the-art IP infrastructure, 3 satellite farms, fiber interconnectivity to Encompass Media which allows us to connect with Azzurro, the Switch, AVOC, and various points in Washington DC and beyond.
