Gerling builds new HD truck for NHK’s baseball coverage

NHK Enterprises America has purchased a full complement of signal processing, routing and monitoring and control gear from Harris for its newest HD mobile broadcast production truck.

NHK will use the new K3 to support its live, East Coast coverage of MLB games that the company broadcasts in HD and transmits back to Japan. NHK has broadcast more than 280 games per season in Japan since 2001.

Built by Gerling and Associates, the truck will hit the road in May 2008 and includes a 3Gb/s-ready design. It includes a Harris Platinum MX 9RU audio router with an embedded TDM MAX audio-switching infrastructure and a Platinum MX 15RU video router integrated with a CENTRIO multiviewer system. Also installed in the truck are more than 20 frames of Harris NEO processing modules and 6800+ core processing modules as well as a NUCLEUS user-configurable control panel and the CCS Navigator advanced graphical navigation application.

The new HD truck will be showcased for the first time at NAB2008 (at Gerling and Associates booth OE100).
