YES Production adds Calrec Omega with Bluefin for OB truck HD makeover
New Orleans-based YES Productions has deployed a 56-fader Calrec Omega console with Bluefin processing in HD-2, its newly refurbished broadcast production truck.
The truck showed off its HD makeover covering the NBA at the New Orleans Hornets' victorious home opener against the Cleveland Cavaliers in November. Since then, HD-2 has been on the road supporting two or three shows a week.
Calrec's Bluefin High Density Signal Processing (HDSP) enables the Omega console to manage 160 channel-processing paths on a single processing card. Packing a lot of power in a small footprint makes the Omega well suited for life in an OB truck. The Omega also provides 8 x 5.1 surround, stereo or mono audio groups, 20 auxiliary outputs — which can be 20 mono or 10 stereo — and 48 outputs for multitrack outputs. The console has two main stereo or 5.1 surround program outputs with full EQ and compressor/limiter facilities.
