Mobile TV Group has selected Grass Valley to supply the cameras and production switcher for its first triple-feed mobile production truck. To be built by sister company Colorado Studios, 33HDX will feature 11 of the new high-performance LDX Series cameras and an 8 M/E Kayenne Video Production Center switcher with three control surfaces: a 4 stripe Kayenne control panel, a 2 stripe Kayenne control panel, and a 1 M/E KSP soft-panel. Mobile TV Group chose the LDX Première, an economical high-performance dual-format HD camera optimized for today's demanding broadcast applications.
A triple-feed truck is designed to produce three distinct productions from a single event. Home shows will be produced from the usual 100-display production area in 33HDX, the visitor's telecast will come out of a three-bench production room in VMU33, and a third feed will come from the traditional dual-feed room of 33HDX. A triple-feed truck can also accommodate Spanish language feeds and pre/postgame shows.
