NEP Broadcasting Comes Through at Emmy Awards with Grass Valley Multiformat HD Technologies
As it has done for over 15 years, NEP Broadcasting was on-hand for the live broadcast of this year’s 64th Primetime Emmy Awards on ABC.
NEP Broadcasting’s expanding fleet of state-of-the-art trucks feature a variety of Grass Valley Video Production Center switchers, some of which were onsite and used extensively by ABC and E! Networks to facilitate the pristine HD coverage of the red carpet ceremonies.
With multiformat capabilities that allow users to get the most for their investment, NEP’s Grass Valley switchers were used in the 720p HD mode, but can easily be reconfigured for all types of 1080 interlaced and progressive HD productions as well.
Onsite in Hollywood, NEP Broadcasting’s Sweetwater Cobalt truck featured a Kayenne switcher, while its Silver and Summit production trucks both featured a Kalypso switchers and Trinix NXT routing switchers. Collectively, the trucks handled all of the red carpet festivities for ABC and E! Networks prior to the main broadcast.
