Euroson chooses Snell & Wilcox for mobile flypack

February 6, 2005

Snell and Wilcox’s Golden DaVE SD1012 switcher (pictured) serves as the centerpiece of a new mobile flypack system designed for live event production.
Euroson, a French company providing rental, sales, and consulting services for the European broadcast and production industry, has purchased an array of infrastructure products from Snell & Wilcox to integrate into a mobile flypack system designed for live event production.

The new flypack, which joins two analog mobile studios already in use at Euroson, includes the IQ Modular infrastructure, 23 IQ boards, the Golden DaVE SD1012 switcher, and the Kudos Plus TBS100 synchronizer/timebase corrector.

The IQ Modular infrastructure implemented by Euroson in its flypack switching room is controlled via Snell & Wilcox’s RollPod, a user-configurable control panel.

The SD1012 switcher combines 10-bit operation at 270Mb/s SD bandwidth and a comprehensive array of features including 12 video/key inputs (expandable to 24), a single mix/effects architecture, 100 wipe patterns, and three keyers, one of which is a DSK and Aux bus control.

Options include 14 color correctors, border generation, and chroma keying, plus a multiple-channel DVE that allows for four full-bandwidth video tiles with flying keys or six full-bandwidth DVE tiles on-screen simultaneously.
