NEP is introducing Supershooter 6 to its fleet of outside broadcast trucks in the United States.
The next-gen truck is 1080p-ready and 4K-capable, and features a Grass Valley Kayenne X-Frame switcher, a Calrec Apollo audio console, Sony HDC-3500 cameras, two 5500 cameras, a Lawo IP router, multi-viewer and EVS XT VIA servers.
Supershooter 6 is powered by NEP’s Broadcast Control (TFC), the company’s proprietary software engine which powers its global production ecosystem.
TFC provides an easy-to-use broadcast control and monitoring system to streamline, simplify and speed up the configuration and connection of on-site and remote facilities, said the company. Developed internally by NEP software engineers, TFC is compatible with virtually any technology in the broadcast and live event environment.
NEP added the TFC’s ability to ease configuration reduces the amount of time needed on site to manage IP-based infrastructure and reduces the risk of human error. It also offers redundancy and built-in safeguarding for all networked flows.
“We are thrilled to continue the progression of our IP mobile unit designs in this new generation of trucks,” said Glen Levine, President, NEP US Broadcast Services.
“Supershooter 6, a single unit with a support unit as needed, is similar to Supershooter 5, featuring NEP’s TFC Control System. Our team continues to do a fabulous job in design, construction, and new innovation. Our new platforms are designed for ease of tying mobile units together in large compounds, as well as for tying into the NEP Global Production Ecosystem. As always, we are using new ideas and technology to create an amazing fleet.”
