NEP taps signal processing gear for NBC's mobile truck
Veteran mobile production company NEP Broadcasting has selected HD digital color correctors and multi-viewers from FOR-A for NBC's new production truck that will cover a variety of sporting events, including the U.S. Open and the upcoming Sunday night football season.
NBC purchased its new signal processing equipment through NEP for its mobile TV production truck unit, ND-3. All 14 DCC-70HS color correctors and the six UFM-100MV multi-viewers were delivered and installed just a few weeks after the order was placed, and have since been used to cover the various U.S. Open golf tournaments. The color correctors and multi-viewers will also be used during the Sunday night football tour for the upcoming NFL season, starting this month.
The DCC-70HS offers 14-bit, 4:4:4 component signal processing and the ability to control black, white and gamma (RGB) levels individually or as a group. The DCC-70HS is part of FOR-A's line of color correction products that include the serial digital (SDI) version, the DCC-700. The cost-effective and compact DCC-70HS supports both SD and HD signals and is ideally suited for facilities where producing and distributing multi-format projects is critical to their business. This includes HD-SDI: 1080/59.94i and 1080/50i; 720p/59.94 and 720p/60 and SD-SDI: 525/60, 625/50.
The UFM-100MV multi-viewer divides the screen into sections for displaying four SD-SDI input signals. It comes with several information display functions, including title display, audio level meter display and optional tally display.
