CMG Mobile Productions Joins Alliance Productions
CMG Mobile Productions, based in Itasca, Illinois, has joined Alliance Productions as a partner to provide mobile television facilities throughout North America. CMG Mobile operates a state-of-the-art 48-foot mobile unit, Integrity HD.
“We are happy to welcome CMG Mobile Productions as the newest partner to the Alliance family,” said Craig Farrell, President, Alliance Productions. “CMG Mobile will be another valuable addition to our overall facilities lineup, offering a variety of services to help us better serve our clients.”
“CMG Mobile Productions is excited and proud to be invited to represent the well-respected Alliance Productions,” says Mark Rath, Partner and Business Manager, CMG Mobile Productions. “I know we’ll be a great representative for Alliance and we look forward to growing our businesses together.”
Rath started CMG Mobile in 2004 and, with partner Greg Elston, began operating Integrity HD as a full HD mobile unit in 2013. Elston, along with EIC Bill Coffel, both 35-year production veterans, designed Integrity HD with a router centric, smaller footprint in mind.
“We added key pieces, like the Grass Valley switcher and Miranda multi-viewer, to make Integrity an extremely powerful and versatile mobile unit,” says Elston, CMG Partner and Director of Engineering.
The Integrity HD standard equipment complement features a Grass Valley Karrera switcher with K-Frame, NVision HD router, GV LDX Premier cameras with Fujinon lenses (Integrity is wired for up to 16 cameras), a Miranda multi-viewer system, a Yamaha PM5000 audio console with a fiber booth kit, two EVS XT2 replay servers with an EVS X-File 3 and Chyron Duet Hyper X3.
Recognized as an industry leader in multi-level facilities and overall client satisfaction, Alliance Productions works closely with broadcasters on a national, regional and local level to provide clients with an efficient and appropriate level of services and support. Alliance Productions is the largest partnership of mobile truck providers in North America and with the addition of CMG Mobile Productions, now includes eleven partner companies.
