Live production company Grass Valley is to support this year’s Super Bowl XLVI high-definition telecast. Broadcaster NEP Supershooters’ trucks will feature Grass Valley HD production gear, including cameras, video production switchers, routers and signal conversion modules. Jeff Rosica, executive vice president of Grass Valley, said: “Live sports production is a main focus of our company and we’ve supported high-profile productions like the Super Bowl for many years, because quality and reliability matters most.” NEP’s SS24 HD mobile production truck features a Grass Valley Kalypso Video Production Center switcher (pictured), as well as Trinix NXT and Concerto Series routing switchers. The company’s SS25 truck carries a Grass Valley Kalypso Video Production Center switcher, more than 12 Grass Valley LDK 8000 Elite WorldCam HD cameras, as well as Grass Valley Trinix and Concerto Series routers. The ND4, California, and Summit vehicles all include a Grass Valley Kalypso Video Production Center switcher on board. “With the entire world watching, it’s critical that our productions look the best they can,” said George Hoover, chief technology officer at NEP. “For our money, that means using Grass Valley equipment where it’s appropriate. We are a long-time fan of their production switchers and cameras and continue to use them whenever our clients need uncompromising quality and flexibility.” www.grassvalley.com
