U.K. OB company commits to HD teleproduction

021 Television has acquired several Sony HD cameras, recorders and monitors to upgrade two OB vehicles to HD

021 Television, an outside broadcast company owned by Granada Media Group, is making a major commitment to high-definition production by upgrading two of its outside broadcast vehicles with Sony HD cameras and equipment.

Headquartered in Birmingham, England, the company has purchased several Sony HDC-950 cameras, HDCAM recorders and BVM-D Series Grade One HD monitors.

021 Television also bought fiber-to-triax converters for the cameras to use at venues that are pre-wired with triax and are unable to use fiber. According to the company, this is a temporary measure to overcome the problem of pre-wired triax stadiums.

When necessary, the teleproduction company augments its complement of Sony HDC-950 cameras and HDCAM equipment with gear from FinePoint Broadcast.
