Grass Valley HD gear on board Token Creek Varsity

Token Creek Mobile Television has commissioned a new HD production truck based around Grass Valley LDK 8000 multiformat HD cameras and a fully loaded Kalypso HD switcher.

Based in Madison, WI, Token Creek produces live multicamera sporting events, in both SD and HD (with full multichannel 5.1 audio mixing), throughout the upper Midwest.

The new 53ft HD truck, named Varsity, was built to satisfy the growing need for HD sports programming among Token Creek’s college football and professional baseball, basketball and hockey clients — including ABC Sports, ESPN and Fox Sports Net. Varsity will be all-HD capable when it hits the road in August, just in time for the fall college football season. It will include eight LDK 8000 cameras, but is wired to support 12.

Token Creek’s Hiawatha truck features a Kalypso SD switcher and its Millennium vehicle is based around a Grass Valley Zodiak SD switcher.
