Token Creek Mobile Television selects Calrec Omega console for HD truck
Token Creek Mobile Television, in Madison, WI, has installed a 56-fader Calrec Omega digital audio console in its Hiawatha production truck, which has now been upgraded to HD operation. Hiawatha's sister truck, Varsity, already carries a Calrec Sigma with Bluefin console, which was purchased last year.
Calrec consoles include the company’s exclusive Bluefin High Density Signal Processing networking technology, which provides the power and flexibility to configure complex shows in a small footprint. The Omega console features 160 channel-processing paths packaged as 48 stereo plus 64 mono channels, allowing up to 24 x full 5.1 surround channels. The Omega also features Calrec’s TFT metering capabilities, which offer complete control of the assignable system.
Token Creek Mobile Television operates a fleet of three remote broadcasting units deployed to cover sports and entertainment productions nationwide. Hiawatha is a 53ft straight-sided truck, built as an SDI unit four years ago with an upgrade path to HD. Work on the HD refurbishment began at Token Creek's own shop in June and was completed on schedule in August. The upgraded Hiawatha truck saw its first action in Green Bay, WI, broadcasting a preseason NFL game between the Packers and the Tennessee Titans.
