Crosscreek Equips New HD Truck With Calrec Console
A new high-definition truck commissioned by Crosscreek Television Productions of Alabaster, Ala. is nearing completion and should be taking to the road in early July, according to information supplied by the company. The new vehicle will feature a Calrec Sigma audio console
equipped with Calrec's Bluefin signal processing system.
The truck is being built by Bennett Systems Inc. in Sunbury, Ohio and will be used primarily for coverage of sports and music events, including National Hot Rod Association drag races.
"When the truck was at NAB in April, the interior was just an empty shell, and everyone asked what kind of desk we were putting in," said Spruce McRee, Crosscreek TV's president. "I told them a Calrec, and they just lit up: 'Way to go!' That's what happens when you buy the leading brand."
The new truck marks the first purchase of Calrec console equipment by Crosscreek and McRee is confident that it will open up new business opportunities for his company.
"We know we'll have no problems booking this truck with Calrec installed," McRee said.
Crosscreek's clients include ESPN, Fox Sports and TBS Baseball.
