Trio’s New HD Mobile Unit Stacked With Cobalt Digital Equipment
Trio Video recently rolled out Tempo, its newest HD mobile unit furnished with an extensive complement of Cobalt Digital’s 3G/HD/SD conversion gear. The Cobalt equipment is being used to distribute audio and video signals throughout the vehicle, and convert HD signals to different levels and formats. Chris Shaw, Cobalt’s VP of sales, made the announcement from Company headquarters in Urbana, IL.
“Tempo is a complete rebuild of an existing trailer into the HD world,” says Roger Redensek, Project Manager at Trio Video. “Our priorities included building a truck that sustained our industry-wide reputation for excellence while meeting a very tight budget. Cobalt’s superior, reliable and cost-effective products enabled us to do both.”
Tempo carries a full size production control room and all the technical firepower of its larger trucks in a compact 48-foot footprint. Cobalt equipment comprises the core of Trio’s infrastructure with the Company’s 9000 series HD dual DAs, and analog audio DAs used for video and audio signal distribution, and advanced audio processing and signal conversion through its Fusion3G 3G/HD/SD-SDI conversion range.
