BeckTV Chosen For French Open

News Image
US S.I. BeckTV has provided design and integration services for the large-scale flypack created by Video Equipment Rentals (VER) to support broadcasters at the 2014 French Open tennis tournament.

The VER flypack supported simultaneous broadcast coverage by four different networks.
"The knowledge and experience that BeckTV brought to the table were invaluable in assuring smooth integration of equipment within this flypack, identifying all of the required elements, and packaging them in a way that minimises the time and hassle of packing, shipping, and on-site setup," said Howard Rosenthal, director of broadcast at Video Equipment Rentals. "With this massive yet agile flypack in our rental inventory, there isn't a show in the world that we can't do."
BeckTV was responsible for nearly every aspect of the flypack, from the outer shell to each one of the 4,000 cable connections within each of two racks. The company integrated and tested the system at its Austin, Texas, facility and then shipped it to VER's Glendale, California, facility. VER staff completed the test and build, incorporating custom-built furniture and consoles designed to adapt to the way production teams prefer to work.
"As soon as we were awarded the French Open contract, we immediately contacted BeckTV," added Rosenthal. "With their ability to offer so much knowledge about how different systems would play into the design we envisioned, we knew that engineers at BeckTV were the only real choice for this flypack design and build."
