Visions HD Trucks Bring Cricket Into Focus

News Image
The largest independent Outside Broadcast facilities company in the UK, has upgraded its two in-line SD trucks to offer full HD capabilities, boosting Visions' HD fleet to a total of 13 vehicles.
NEP Visions' HD10 and HD12 (formerly known as D10 and D12) will have their first outing at Trent Bridge where they will be used to produce highlights of the first England v Pakistan NPower Test Match. The highlight show will be produced by Sunset + Vine for FIVE.
HD10 and HD12 each provide the convenience of an in-line unit with all the production power and versatility of a larger OB unit. Each truck is based on a large articulated truck chassis, providing a spacious and comfortable production environment including an expanding rear section to accommodate a flat screen monitor stack. They are ideal for mid- to large-sized sports, music and light entertainment events, each accommodating up to 20 cameras, and with provision for up to six server-based record/replay devices and six VTRs.
Brian Clark, Contracts Director, NEP Visions, commented: "NEP Visions is delighted to strengthen its service offering with the addition of the newly upgraded HD10 and HD12 to its fleet of trucks. These two HD inline production trucks are capable of faster rigs and parking in tight city centre and venue locations. As demand for HD production continues to grow, we see these assets as a flexible and cost-effective solution to LE and Sports clients that have the need for an HD truck but have limitations on access and budget."
Dylan Jane, Series Producer, Cricket on Five, said: "After working with Visions for the past five years on Cricket on Five, we at Sunset+Vine are both delighted and excited that together we will be producing Cricket on Five in HD for the first time this summer. Visions has expertly accommodated our requirements for the programme in providing us with a first rate HD truck which will enable us to produce the best programme possible."
