Grass Valley Equipment Takes Leading Role for 82nd Oscars(r) Live HDTV Telecast(March 08, 2010)
NEP Supershooters has used Grass Valley equipment to cover the past six Oscar(r) telecasts, annually presentedby the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
NEP's "Summit" truck covered the main HD telecast with a Grass Valley Kalypso(tm) HD Video Production Center switcher, and a Grass Valley Trinix(tm) 192x160 HD video router under Grass Valley Encore(tm) software control.
The company's "SS25" truck, used for the Red Carpet activities and other ancillary events, carries 14 LDK 8000 WorldCam multiformat HD cameras, a Grass Valley Kalypso HD switcher, and dozens of Grass Valley GeckoFlex(tm) signal processing modules.
The NEP Denali "Silver" truck supported the live broadcast, employing a Grass Valley Kalypso HD switcher andGrass Valley SMS7000 video router.
Additionally, A/V services company, ProQue was on site with one of their K2 Summit(tm) media servers tied
to and controlled by one of the two Kalypso switchers, provided by NEP in their Summit and Silver trucks,
used to cut the main show program feed.
For production companies that help produce a variety of HD events in different formats and resolutions with
the same truck, the Grass Valley LDK 8000 WorldCam camera is the ideal choice. With its award-winning
HD-DPM(tm)+ imaging technology that features three 9.2 million pixel imagers, it can handle any type of
production with ease. By manipulating the imagers at a sub-pixel level, the camera can produce native
full resolution images for any HD acquisition format, with a consistent pin-sharp resolution while
offering a very high sensitivity.
