Terminology

"Central machine room" is used in one place, "Master control room" in another. Are these synonymous? Could we standardize on one or the other? Jedwards05 2006-05-23

In a broadcast station in the US, "Master Control Room" or "MCR" is the place where the on-air signal is controlled. It may include systems to playback programs and commercials, switch local or network feeds, record satellite feeds and monitor the transmitter(s). The term "studio" usually refers to a place where a particular program is originated. If the program is broadcast live, the signal goes from the studio control room to MCR and then out to the transmitter. I think these terms should be clarified in the main article.Thomprod 16:32, 10 July 2007 (UTC)
I work at Showtime Arabia in the Broadcast Engineering department. Our setup is based on European broadcast standards. We have a "CAR" or "Central apparatus Room" could also be called "Central machine room". All our broadcast and broadcast IT gear is housed here, please note server room is IT only and is under the IT department. MCR and CAR are completely different. Thomprod is correct. In our case for the English Premiere League, our signal comes from the television studio goes through the studio gallery for vision mixing, then to a Sports transmission suite (1, 2 or 3 depending on no. of games). Then to the Sports Master Control, finally to the Network Operations Center (NOC) from where it goes on for uplinking. Please note this is the operational "control" signal path and not the actual technical signal path which would include the specific piece of broadcast gear the signal goes through.
