M-5 is the first dual-feed truck for MIRA Mobile Television.
When Portland, OR, -based MIRA Mobile Television launched its new high definition, dual-feed production truck, M-5, 11 Fujinon HD lenses were on board.
MIRA Mobile uses the lenses to cover live professional and college sports in the western United States. The unit produced its first HD event on Dec. 7 — an NBA game between the Sacramento Kings and the Charlotte Bobcats.
M-5 is the first dual-feed truck for MIRA Mobile Television. It’s designed for two separate crews to produce two different shows at the same time from the same event. It features separate production, audio and tape/media storage rooms.
MIRA Mobile’s new M-5 includes: four XA72x9.3BESM and two XA87x9.3BESM (with stabilization) HD zoom lenses; two HA13x4.5BERM wide-angle HD lenses; and three HA22x7.8 BERM ENG-style HD lenses. The lenses are currently affixed to Sony HDC-900 and HDC-950 HD cameras. In March 2006, they will be affixed to Sony HDC-930 and HDC-910 HD cameras, which will acquire signals in the new 1080/60p format.
