Lyon Video Hits Road With Grass Valley

A premiere mobile production company Lyon Video - which is based in Columbus, Ohio - is building a new 53-foot expandable high-definition production truck and equipping it with the latest and most flexible Grass Valley HD cameras and a large video production switcher that will be fully capable of handling all types of multi-camera digital productions, including those shooting in the 3DHD format.
The new LYON Video MU-11 HD truck will hit the road in August, in time for the upcoming NFL season, working with ESPN HD/ESPN, ABC, the Fox Sports Net regional sports cable network, and Fox Sports.
The new mobile unit includes 14 Grass Valley LDK 8000 Elite WorldCam cameras (with triax and 3G fiber base stations), one LDK 8300 3X Super SloMo camera, one LDK 8000 SportCam (2X SloMo), two 2-channel K2 Solo servers with ClipStore, and a 4.5 M/E Kayenne Video Production Center.
As part of the agreement, Grass Valley will provide StartPRO on-site commissioning services for the cameras and switcher. Gerling & Associates (Sunbury, Ohio) constructed the truck body.
"Our first Kayenne switcher was installed on board our Lyon 8 HD Expando in 2009 and we have never looked back," said Bob Lyon, President of Lyon Video.
"The power and flexibility of this switcher is unparalleled in the industry, and provides our clients with cutting-edge capabilities not available to them before."
All of Lyon Video's large HD trucks feature Grass Valley cameras and switchers, including its Lyon 8, which also carries a new 4.5 M/E Kayenne HD switcher, and 14 LDK 8000 Elite WorldCam HD cameras.
Among a number of high-profile events, the truck was used by NFL Films at the 2010 Super Bowl in Miami FL and NBA Entertainment at the 2010 at the 59th NBA All Star game.
"Video production companies like Lyon Video continue to deploy the latest Grass Valley production tools in order to satisfy the widest variety of clients and projects," said Jeff Rosica, Senior Vice President of Grass Valley.
"It was one of the first production companies to take delivery of our new Kayenne switcher and is now in the process of upgrading many of its existing trucks to make them more attractive to live sports and entertainment producers televising major events in HD and, increasingly, 3D TV."
