Professional Products, Inc. (PPI), an industry leader in designing and integrating advanced video, audio, data and control systems has completed a state-of-the-art multimedia production facility for the Transportation Security Administration (TSA). This new facility allows TSA to produce and distribute vital private and public information through the use of high definition video and the expansion of production capacity. PPI designed, engineered and integrated the system.
“We’re very pleased to have the opportunity to assist TSA in its crucial safety and security efforts by enhancing its communication capabilities and preparing it for the future,” said PPI President and CEO Bruce Kaufmann.
The television production studio is equipped with Hitachi high definition cameras, Fujinon lens, LCD based telepromters, mounted on Vinten Vision studio pedestals and Vision 20 fluid heads.
The production switcher is a Ross CrossOver switcher that uses a real time proprietary operating system which provides very stable operation, and a quick re-boot time, both critical for TSA.
A Harris Nexio SD/HD video server has been installed with six terabytes (6.2TB) of disk storage, capable of handling between 60 and 180 hours of HD media. Programs are edited on Apple Final Cut Pro high definition non-linear editing systems.
