Grass Valley Outfits Moscow-Based Technostyle Technologies
Technostyle Technologies, an outside broadcast and full service production company based in Moscow, Russia, has added a large, high definition (HD) mobile truck to its fleet for major sports and entertainment events on behalf of key clients such as Channel One Russia.
With HD production taking hold in the region, especially with its customers recently upgrading to HD, Technostyle was challenged to not only meet current client needs, but to prepare itself for the future of OB production in the region.
For maximum operational flexibility and image quality, Technostyle selected Grass Valley for all the key technologies within the unit, including cameras and production switchers.
“Investing in production equipment for a truck of this sophistication could only be trusted to a company with a great reputation for quality like Grass Valley,” said Volodin Borislav, CTO of Technostyle Technologies. “We believe that when this mobile unit hits the road later this year it will be able to handle any type of live production, which will allow our business to grow and keep our clients very happy.”
The unit will carry 12 Grass Valley LDK 8000 Elite HD cameras, fitted with the new Grass Valley 3G Transmission system to provide maximum effectiveness and range from existing triax cables, as well as the ability to use fiber when necessary. The cameras feed a Grass Valley Karrera 2 M/E Video Production Center, which delivers unsurpassed creative control in a compact and affordable package.
“Outside broadcast and studio-based production companies around the world continue to choose Grass Valley for their most important production projects,” said Alan Wright, senior vice president, Europe, Middle East, and Africa for Grass Valley. “Technostyle continues to invest in top-class facilities to meet the demands of its broadcast clients, and we are proud to work with them to ensure they consistently deliver the best production resources available.”
Technostyle Technologies also maintains one of the largest postproduction facilities in Russia.
