NHK HD MLB truck to hit road with Harris gear
NHK Enterprises America has purchased products from the Harris signal processing, routing and monitoring and control portfolio for its newest HD mobile broadcast production truck.
The truck, K3, is due to be commissioned in May. It includes the Harris Platinum MX 9RU audio router with embedded TDM MAX audio-switching infrastructure and a Platinum MX 15RU video router integrated with the CENTRIO multiviewer. The truck also has more than 20 frames for NEO advanced processing modules and 6800+ core processing modules as well as a NUCLEUS user-configurable control panel and the CCS Navigator advanced graphical navigation application.
NHK will use the K3 to support its live HD East Coast coverage of MLB games, which the broadcaster transmits back to Japan. NHK has broadcast more than 280 games per season in Japan since 2001.
K3 will be featured at NAB2008.
