Nashville, TN (March 6, 2014)—Mobile TV production specialists TNDV, marking 10 years of business, has moved into a new facility in northeast Nashville. The secure, climate-controlled facility gives owner Nic Dugger and his growing team a space to maintain and upgrade trucks, host clients, plan upcoming projects and accommodate post production work.
Dugger and his team re-designed the former armored truck warehouse from scratch, from concrete pours and office partitions to lighting, wiring and security systems. The 10,000-square-foot space provides room to securely park and work on TNDV’s trucks, and includes a networked infrastructure with AV technology to share data, audio and video across offices and conference rooms. The main boardroom is equipped with HD playback and recording technology to evaluate and review projects with staff and clients, while UHDTV displays and fiber optic tie-lines to the trucks enable real-time review of media still residing on video servers and Pro Tools.
Dugger notes that the move was firmly rooted in square footage, with a need to better accommodate activity and growth. “When we moved to our previous location six years ago, it was me and a truck,” he said. “Ten years into business, we are at five trucks with seven full-time engineers and a crew of production freelancers. Bringing one truck into that facility meant we couldn’t prep for our next show effectively. Here, we can pull three trucks indoors at once to do maintenance, make upgrades and change infrastructure as needed. The last point is very important, as we do not force a fixed inventory on our clients. We are a la carte for each show, and constantly reconfigure our trucks. Now we have a spot to prepare for the many upcoming truck shoots we have, while taking advantage of our newest 4K production acquisition systems.”
The new TNDV facility is located at 515 Brick Church Park Drive, Nashville, TN 37207.
