Cinemat Miami Rolls Out New Truck With Calrec Audio Summa Console
When Cinemat Miami’s all-new, eight-camera production truck takes to the road for its first live-event booking, a Calrec Summa digital audio console will be on board. The Summa brings Calrec’s reliability, extensibility, and ease of use to the new truck, a significant expansion of Cinemat’s rental production capabilities.
“Our new truck is the first of its size in Miami, and we had important requirements for the audio console,” says Eduardo Scheuren, VP, Cinemat Miami. “We needed a desk that was extremely easy to use and compact enough for a mobile environment, and yet could provide the functionality to cover a wide range of live sports and entertainment events.
“Not only does Calrec’s Summa meet all of these criteria and more, but the Summa will be easy to expand as our business grows. Calrec has set the standard for excellence in audio mixing consoles.”
Cinemat Miami is a full-service content production company with more than 20 years’ experience producing original and “work for hire” programs for the general and Hispanic markets in the U.S. and Latin America.
In addition to Cinemat’s six fully equipped sound stages and 10 state-of-the-art editing suites, the new Summa-equipped truck joins three other full-HD mobile production and grip vehicles in the company’s mobile fleet. The new truck is currently supporting production of talk show programs in studio B at Cinemat’s new Blue Dolphin Studios facility and will be deployed for remote client productions within the next two months.
“We welcome Cinemat as one of our newest Calrec customers in North America,” says Helen Carr, Calrec’s regional sales manager. “Summa is a great choice for regional mobile broadcasting and OB providers like Cinemat because it offers world-class functionality in an affordable, compact footprint. We’re glad the Summa is playing a key role in helping Cinemat expand its OB capabilities and go after larger types of productions.”
