Remote Digital Media bases new flypack on FOR-A switcher
Remote Digital Media (RDM), a production services provider for corporate and network clients throughout the New York metropolitan area, recently constructed a tapeless HD flypack around the new FOR-A HVS-300HS HD/SD portable video switcher.
Since late March, the Montclair, NJ-based company has used the 1M/E switcher on productions for NBC, Food Network, YES Network and MTV.
According to RDM owner Sandor Bondorowsky, the compact HVS-300HS was chosen for the flypack system because of its versatility, rich feature set and ease of operation. RDM’s client base calls for a wide variety of productions, some requiring the use of all 12 inputs for multiple camera configurations and additional playback sources. RDM also often needs to react to tight deadlines and work in small spaces while accommodating multicamera HD shoots and on-set projection.
