Sure Shot Transmissions chooses Cobalt Digital converter cards
Sure Shot Transmissions has selected Cobalt Digital’s COMPASS 9061 and 9062 converter cards for use in its new 40ft eight-camera HD production truck.
Named “Natalie Michelle,” the new truck will have up to eight Grass Valley LDK8000 HD cameras and an expando production area. The cards are being used for split-feed frame sync and all other HD-SD/SDI conversion requirements within the truck.
The HD truck will be used for MLB, PGA in Augusta, college basketball, professional ice hockey and NFL events. Clients will include U.S. and international broadcasters, including NRK and ESPN. To meet such a variety of needs, it was critical that the up/down/crossconversion cards could handle all types of known HD/SD-SDI.
