HD4 - 4K Upgrade
Fully refurbished unit back on the road
Televideo’s HD4 is enjoying its first season on British Superbikes since a full-refurbishment. The unit had its first run out as it headed to Round 1 of the British Superbikes Championship at Silverstone in April of this year, and has since been used on each round with great success. HD4 has undergone massive changes – a new layout offers clients a state-of-the-art production area leading into a much larger VT department.
Technically, HD4 is now one of the most advanced units on the fleet – boasting a 4K ready vision mixer and monitor stack in production, as well as a Calrec Alpha Bluefin sound desk, giving 5:1 surround sound and a 64 fader capability.
Technical Director Owen Holmes said of the new unit: “With this refit, we've improved every aspect of the truck, focussing on the requirements of modern production. The VT area has space for a large sports replay operation with ample video and audio monitoring, the production area features a motorised monitor stack and configurable lighting and the technical specification gives it the power to tackle the most demanding outside broadcasts. Key equipment in the truck means it is ready and waiting for the emerging 4K Ultra High Definition TV standards.”
