USA - CP Communications has announced that it will add MultiDyne’s 22ft mobile van to its growing fleet of production vehicles.
MultiDyne introduced the van in 2018 as a ‘mobile marketing van’ that doubled as an exhibition showcase for MultiDyne products at North American tradeshows, and as a mobile showroom for MultiDyne road shows and training initiatives. CP Communications, a long-time MultiDyne customer, recognised an opportunity for both companies to collaborate on smaller live productions, including high school and college sports projects.
“Many high school and college sports venues have live production needs, but lack the workspace to accommodate a flypack or a large truck,” said Kurt Heitmann, CEO, CP Communications. “The MultiDyne van offers the perfect footprint for a four-to-six camera shoot, and solves our problem of carving out a workspace for live productions in tight spaces. It also provide a professional, low-cost acquisition model for our customers working on strict production budgets.”
“We have long considered how the professional design of this van can be leveraged for more than standard road shows and demonstrations,” said Frank Jachetta, CEO, MultiDyne. “Partnering with CP Communications, among the industry’s premier live production companies, offers a compelling way to provide real value to the broadcast and production community, while also ensuring that the CP Communications team has the best that fibre transport technology can offer for live services.”
MultiDyne will equip the van with its latest SilverBack V cameraback systems, VF-9000 fibre transmission platform, and COMMS-300 fibre extenders to interface party-line intercom audio with analogue line level signals. CP Communications will use the additional space to customise the infrastructure for each project, including Dante audio networking, Simplylive switchers, and AJT graphics and score bugs among other systems.
“We have a long history with MultiDyne and believe they have the best and broadest range of fibre transport products on the market,” said Heitmann. “The SilverBack systems provide us with the flexibility to convert ENG cameras to broadcast cameras. We will add those systems to our four handhelds and two PTZ cameras to provide plenty of freedom and flexibility for live six-camera productions. The net result is that we can accomplish a quick plug’n’play setup of under two hours, while still having all the power of realtime fibre transport, live switching, and instant replay among other professional systems.”
CP Communications and MultiDyne will demonstrate the applications and technologies for the partnership at the NAB New York show.
