Hebden Bridge, UK (October 17, 2011)—3D technology and production service provider CAMERON | PACE Group has become the first customer to purchase Calrec's new Artemis Light audio console.
CAMERON | PACE Group, led by co-founders James Cameron and Vincent Pace, chose the Artemis Light to upgrade Mobile Unit 1, a FUSION 3D mobile unit for on-location broadcast and post productions, for its advanced surround sound capabilities.
"The Artemis Light is the perfect choice for the complex audio requirements of our newly upgraded Mobile Unit 1, and we are pleased to be the first users of this new system," said Vince Pace, co-chairman of CAMERON | PACE Group. "It's clear that the Artemis Light is state-of-the-art audio console technology and a cost-effective platform that we can easily expand as our productions become more demanding of resources."
CAMERON | PACE Group's approach differs from many of the OB/mobile unit companies currently offering 3D broadcast facilities, in that it transmits 3D and 2D from a single OB unit, compared to the split, twin-vehicle approach favored by many European providers.
"We're delighted that CAMERON | PACE Group's co-chairmen, James Cameron and Vince Pace, are our first Artemis Light customers, and we look forward to working with them closely as they bring their 3D production approach to Europe," said Dave Letson, Calrec's U.S. regional director of sales. "As part of the sale, CAMERON | PACE will be able to expand the Hydra2 network easily by renting extra Calrec I/O units when projects require them.
"John Root, the business development manager at Bexel, our West Coast distributor, was instrumental in the sale because he ensured that CAMERON | PACE Group will get the quickest possible turnaround for any additional I/O rental. That assurance added a lot of value to the sale."
