Palo Alto, CA (February 28, 2006)–Euphonix announced that Denver, Colorado-based Mobile Television Group has just ordered a sixth System 5-B digital audio broadcast console. The fifth console was recently installed in their newest truck, identified as 11HDX, and was designed and built by Colorado Studios. The new truck commenced operation December 30th, 2005 and is primarily assigned to the St. Louis region.
The Mobile Television Group has been steadily expanding their fleet since the first System 5 was installed in 2003 in 7HDX with 8HDX, 9HDX, and 10HDX following at regular intervals. The sixth System 5 is destined for installation this summer in 12HDX. Each of the HD trucks is 53 ft. long with expanding sides to 13 ft. 6 in. and includes Thomson LDK 6000 Triax HD cameras and GVG HD switchers.
The Euphonix System 5-B housed inside 11HDX consists of 106 channels, each with 4-band EQ, dynamics, two filters, 24 mix busses, 24 group/clean feed matrix busses, 16 IFB/aux sends, and 24 external inputs. The new console is well suited to on-air production of both HD (high definition) and SD (standard definition) broadcasts.
According to Phil Garvin, general manager of the Mobile TV Group and president of Colorado Studios, “Our newest truck was built over a period of seven months, and it is well-equipped to handle just about any project that comes our way. The majority of this truck’s work will be HD sports broadcasting, but we certainly anticipate that the facility will also be used for a variety of entertainment projects. While this truck will be used to support projects with all networks, the majority of its operations will be in support of Fox Sports and Bud Sports.”
