Evertz, CP Communication help ESPN with Super coverage
CP Communications, a NY based company with offices in Burbank, CA and Orlando, FL provides ESPN with their fiber solutions for Sports Center at SBXLI. “ We chose the Evertz fiber technology for ESPN Monday Night Football and ESPN decided to bring the same fiber solution to the Sportscenter Beach set here in Miami”, says Kurt Heitmann VP of sales and marketing for CP. “The Evertz fiber racks we designed and engineered performed above our expectations in sometimes very harsh conditions all year long for the sets of Monday Night Football.”
The stage set rack consists of; 64 channels of audio, 8 channels of full duplex 2 wire intercom, 8 channels of IFB, 10/100 Ethernet and 12 channels of video all muxed on fiber. The rack also has dual power supplies and a optical combiner and splitter.
“We basically brought the Audio Booth from the truck and extended it over glass. We built a truck side rack that allows the audio Mixer to patch 5 DT-12 mults into the rack and be done, no xlr mess on the truck side, very clean and efficient!” says Mr Heitmann.
