Burst was recently awarded integration contracts with the City and County of Denver and with KNCT-TV, the PBS-affiliate at Central Texas College in Killeen, Texas.

Burst will replace current production infrastructure at Denver 8 TV, including the construction of two new "mirrored" control rooms to significantly enhance the station's production capabilities at the City and County of Denver's downtown Civic Center location. Burst will provide all equipment, install and commission the system, and train city employees to use the facilities. The Burst installation will support 11 remotely controlled robotic cameras as well as maintain manually operated camera capabilities. It will extend a fiber infrastructure to accommodate more productions in more places, including a second, nearby municipal office building.
