Grass Valley Technology Sends Home the Oscars(r) at the 83rd Academy Awards(March 02, 2011)
Veteran production company NEP Broadcasting, based in Pittsburgh, Penn., had a total of five HD-capable production trucks on site at the Kodak Theatre in Los Angeles, Calf., each dedicated to a specific part of the world famous telecast, and each with Grass Valley HD cameras, switchers, servers, and/or routing equipment on board.
NEP's "Denali Summit" handled the main Oscar telecast, using a Grass Valley Kalypso(tm) HD
video production switcher, several K2 media servers, and a large Trinix(tm) NXT router.
The NEP "SS25" truck helped capture the festivities of the "Oscars Red Carpet Live" show for
ABC, which aired just prior to the awards show. The truck carries a Kalypso and more than a
dozen LDK 8000 HD cameras.
Also on the line-up was "Denali Silver", which was used to produce the main International
Oscar broadcast feed, which also houses a Kalypso HD switcher and a Trinix NXT router.
The other two production trucks (SSNB4 and SS20) were utilized by media organizations
covering the red carpet arrivals with live telecasts from the site.
