Master Control
MASTER CONTROL is the technical hub of a broadcast operation common among most over-the-air television stations and television networks . It is distinct from a production control room (PCR) in television studios where the activities such as switching from camera to camera are coordinated. It is also vastly different from the studio where the talent are located. A transmission control room (TCR) is usually smaller in size and is a scaled down version of centralcasting . Master control is the final point before a signal is transmitted over-the-air for terrestrial television or cablecast , satellite provider for broadcast, or sent on to a cable television operator. Television master control rooms include banks of video monitors , satellite receivers , videotape machines, video servers , transmission equipment, and, more recently, computer broadcast automation equipment for recording and playback of television programming

A TELEVISION STATION is a set of equipment managed by a business, organisation or other entity, such as an amateur television (ATV) operator, that transmits video content via radio waves directly from a transmitter on the earth's surface to a receiver on earth. Most often the term refers to a station which broadcasts structured content to an audience or it refers to the organization that operates the station. A terrestrial television transmission can occur via analog television signals or, more recently, via digital television signals. Television stations are differentiated from cable television or other video providers in that their content is broadcast via terrestrial radio waves

Facility ID
The FACILITY ID NUMBER, also called a FIN or FACILITY IDENTIFIER, is a unique integer number of one to six digits, assigned by the U.S. Federal Communications Commission
Federal Communications Commission
's (FCC) Media Bureau to each broadcast station in the FCC's Consolidated Database System (CDBS). Because CDBS includes information about foreign stations which are notified to the U.S. under the terms of international frequency coordination agreements, FINs are also assigned to affected foreign stations. However, this has no legal significance, and the numbers are not used by the regulatory authorities in those other countries. Current FCC practice is to assign facility ID numbers sequentially, but this is not an official requirement, so third-party users must not rely on it

Digital Television
DIGITAL TELEVISION (DTV) is the transmission of television signals, including the sound channel, using digital encoding, in contrast to the earlier television technology, analog television , in which the video and audio are carried by analog signals . It is an innovative advance that represents the first significant evolution in television technology since color television in the 1950s. Digital TV can transmit multiple channels in the same bandwidth occupied by a single channel of analog television, and provides many new features that analog television cannot. A switchover from analog to digital broadcasting began around 2006 in some countries, and many industrial countries have now completed the changeover, while other countries are in various stages of adaptation
