Mobile TV Purchases New Leitch Converters, Synchronizer

Mobile TV has purchased 18 Leitch X75HD up/down/cross converters and frame synchronizers for its new truck, 10HDX.

The Denver-based mobile production services provider operates 10 mobile units nationwide, six of which are 53-foot expandos.

The 1RU X75HD operates in analog, digital or hybrid environments, converting up to seven input video formats--including HDTV optical fiber, HD-SDI, SDI, DV, composite video, Betacam and S-VHS/Hi-8--to most output video formats.

"It also cross-converts 720p/1080i, which means we can share camera feeds from other trucks regardless of format," said Phillip Garvin, general manager of Mobile TV.
