Dome Productions Taps DNF Controls For MAJESTICSlow Motion Controller used for HD playout in newest mobile unit (July 13, 2004)
DNF Controls today announced that Dome Productions Inc., the Canadian leader in the television mobile business, has integrated DNF's ST300 Slow Motion Controller into MAJESTIC, the company's eighth mobile production unit, and to date the largest HDTV production unit to be built and operated out of Canada.
"We find that for all the extra functionality they provide at an affordable price point, DNF's ST300 controllers are hands-down the best choice for this application," said Dome Productions Manager of Engineering Curtis Skinner. "They have earned an excellent reputation for reliability, and operators find them easy to use and enjoy working with them. We've been using ST300 systems for years now, and they've always been straightforward and intuitive control solutions that are effective in the demanding world of live sports."
Dome Productions' MAJESTIC hit the road April 1 and has been used for live sports events such as Major League Baseball, NHL hockey and NBA Basketball, as well as several music concerts. On board, six DNF ST300 units control equipment including a Sony HDCAM, Panasonic D5 and Panasonic HD DVCPRO VTRs, and EVS servers.
The compact ST300 Slow Motion Controller from DNF Controls is an affordable, high-quality controller that gives operators quick, easy, and reliable control. The ST300 allows operators to quickly mark and recall up to 100 cue points per VTR, and the T-bar provides smooth slow-motion playout. The controller's powerful set-up menu allows users to configure the controller for the way they work.
