New York, NY (November 1, 2016)—Arkansas-based Jones Mobile Television has performed a major upgrade of its VisionHD trailer, including the installation of a Calrec Summa digital mixing console.
Bob Derryberry, co-owner, Jones Mobile Television, noted, “Space was always going to be an issue in VisionHD, but Calrec has given us the perfect solution with the Summa, a smaller-footprint desk that offers huge power and functionality.
VisionHD is a 51-foot expando trailer used to produce and broadcast national sports, corporate and entertainment events. The Summa console was first used for coverage of the Copa America soccer semifinal and quarterfinal matches in Houston.
Chris Duty, engineer-in-charge at Jones Mobile Television, commented, “The Calrec Summa works beautifully and gives us many more capabilities than we had previously. The Hydra2 router allows us to interface directly with digital devices on the truck, and we can use our core video router side by side with the Summa for even greater power and more I/O.
“We’re able to provide much more complex configurations of the truck’s equipment, which we can now change per show. The console’s analogue and digital interfaces, in particular MADI, have made it a lot easier to take advantage of all of Calrec’s industrial-strength routing functionality.”
