NCP Captures HD Baseball With Grass Valley

New Century Productions, a provider of remote production facilities and services, plans to broadcast 100 professional baseball games this season using Grass Valley equipment from Thomson. NCP is using Grass Valley cameras, servers and switchers to broadcast its 720p coverage.

NCP is using its all-HD truck, NCP-V, for baseball coverage. The rig is outfitted with 16 Grass Valley LDK 6000 mk II Standard model multiformat cameras, an XtenDD HD digital production switcher and a four-channels PVS 3000 Profile XP Media Platform video server, which according to GVG, is the only system that can support SD and HD materials on the same server and timeline.
