Dome Productions Selects Leitch for HD Conversion

Toronto's Dome Productions has chosen the Harris Corp. Leitch HD conversion portfolio for its new mobile production unit.

The sale includes the Harris Leitch X75 multiple path converter/synchronizer that provides simultaneous up-, down- and cross conversion, a variety of modules in the Leitch NEO XHD series, and the new Leitch 6800+ series of HD monitoring downconverters with the minimum delay option.

Dome, a production facility provider, also selected the Harris HD/SD test and measurement portfolio including the Videotek TVM-950HD multi format HD/SD-SDI monitor with eye pattern, and Videotek TVM-900 multiformat HD/SD-SDI video and audio signal analyzer.

"Dome decided to go exclusively with Leitch conversion products for this truck since its HD products offer the most advanced design technology on the market at a competitive price," said Curtis Skinner, manager of engineering services for Dome Productions. "As well, Dome has worked with Leitch for many years on numerous projects, and has always been pleased with the high quality of service and support, a key deciding factor for us since this truck will be used to cover many high-profile sporting and entertainment events."

The HD production vehicle is scheduled for completion in April.
