Mobile TV Group Installs Second Kayenne Switcher

Mobile Television Group, a Denver-based provider of mobile production trucks, has installed a second Grass Valley Kayenne multiformat Video Production Center onboard its 10HDX truck. The truck is designed to simulcast dual-feed shows in SD and HD.

The 10HDX production truck previously used a GV Kalypso switcher to produce HD broadcasts of sporting events. Now it can broadcast in both SD and HD and it also contains 10 Grass Valley LDK 6000/8000 HD cameras with triax adapters.

“We’ve received such positive feedback from clients that have used it because the Kayenne multi-suite mode greatly enhances the capabilities of dual feed production,” said Philip Garvin, president of Colorado Studio and owner/manager of Mobile Television Group. “We will install our third Kayenne in early 2010.”

Colorado Studios now has over 170 Grass Valley LDK 6000 mkII WorldCam and LDK 8000 HD cameras, more than 20 Grass Valley production switchers, as well as routers and modular equipment on board their fleet of mobile production trucks.
