CSP Outfits Pair of HD Trucks with Utah Scientific Routing Switchers
CSP Mobile Productions has acquired two of Utah Scientific’s UTAH-400/288 video routing switchers and two UTAH-400 AES audio routing switchers with integrated MADI for installation in the company’s first HD television production trucks. The first truck went to work in October, primarily covering professional football, hockey, and basketball in the eastern United States. The second is scheduled to debut in February.
“Like Utah Scientific, we are a small company dedicated to personalized customer service,” says Len Chase, CSP Mobile Productions president. “We don’t let our clients down, and that means we need equipment that’s reliable and highly functional in the demanding mobile production environment. We already have Utah Scientific routers in our two SDI trucks, and they have been great for us and our clients.”
Utah Scientific’s SC-4 control system and its UCP-48 control panel is a single, 1RU panel that affords easy, scrolled access to 48 sources, including tape and six channels of EVS.
CSP Mobile, based in Saco, Maine, did the integration for its first HD truck, 53-feet long and straight sided, in-house. The second truck, a 53-foot expando, is currently being integrated by Little Bay Broadcast Services in Barrington, NH.
