ore than ever, the 2018 Mobile Sports Production Yearbook reflects what promises to be an exciting transition to new workflows, technologies, and technical facilities that form the framework of an industry that, within five years, might look and feel very different from what it is today. Although, outside and inside, the trucks profiled within this Yearbook may look like those that hit the road three or four years ago, the move to IP-based transport of audio and video signals, as well as intercom systems, is giving the facilities additional fire power and flexibility. It also makes the facilities increasingly capable of addressing next-generation needs, such as 4K and HDR. IP represents the biggest change from the trucks that hit the road in 2016. At that time, the conventional wisdom was that IP transport was best-suited to vehicles designed for the larger, top-level national shows. The vast number of cameras and sources made the benefits of IP worth the headaches of being a pioneer. But today, thanks in part to the collaborative efforts that remote-production–facility providers and equipment manufacturers undertook to solve technical shortcomings, IP is believed to be a part of nearly all future remote-production units. Gathering data for this Yearbook and checking in with leading remote-production– services vendors, an informal survey suggests that baseband routing and IP routing will most likely coexist for several years. Ditto for 720p/1080i production, despite the HDR and 4K eras being upon us. That said, increasingly, a powerful combination of IP-based production units coupled with IP-based venues and broadcast facilities enables audio and video signals to be dynamically sent nearly anywhere. That flexibility lays the foundation for future workflows that could upend the current business relationship between facility providers and clients, production freelancers, and even full-time staffers at leading networks and leagues. More and more, organizations at the center of sports-content creation — networks, leagues, teams, federations, sports agencies — are turning to production models that allow more of the team to work from a centralized facility. The benefits to such a move are clear: the production team spends less time on the road, which means that its members can potentially spend what used to be a travel day producing another event. Also, because the event “comes to them,” production teams working on multiple events on the same day is also possible. How the trend toward at-home workflow will impact the remote-production business is still unclear. Most of the work being done in that area is on smaller, niche events that don’t rely on the major remote-production units profiled in the Yearbook. But, as trust in IP and fiber transport grows, there is the potential that at-home workflows could increase and change the dynamics between remote-production–facility providers and their clients. Five years hence, what will the production units covered in the Mobile Sports Production Yearbook look like? There are plenty of exciting possibilities, especially when the flexibility of IP-signal transport combines with the flexibility of software-based operations and FPGA-based computer processing. And one thing is clear: the engineering and production-operations experts at the leading remote production service providers will be gearing up to make sure their staff and facilities are ready for anything.

Mobile-Production Leaders on State of the Industry and What To Expect in 2018 Edited by Jason Dachman

A

lthough the mobile-production business continues to thrive — with more live-sports events being produced in 2017 than ever before — truck providers face a host of technical and economic challenges as they serve client needs today while also preparing for tomorrow. As major sports broadcasters look to trim costs, remote-facility vendors are being asked to deliver more for less, as well as to confront the increasing use of at-home production workflows. In addition, technology is evolving at a breakneck pace, with more and more mobile units being built on IP infrastructure in preparation for the future. Meanwhile, these vendors are laying out their future roadmaps when it comes to 4K- and HDR-capability in their trucks. SVG sat down with more than a dozen industry leaders to discuss the current state of the business and, more important, where it’s headed in the coming years. Here are the executives we spoke with:

Executive Perspectives

Do you consider the current state of the remote-production business healthy? Where do you see the industry in headed in the next 12-18 months? Carlyle: We do see a very healthy market, especially since we’re vertically integrated [due to being co-owned by Canadian media giants Rogers and Bell Media]. I see an increase in demand for content. Whether it’s smallformat or large-format production, everybody wants content, so we’re going to see growth next year. I think a lot of our momentum is because we added Vista [4K mobile unit]. I see people starting to play with 4K in the market, and I think entertainment will play a big role in that — just as it did when HD started. Farrell: I think remote production is healthy, but the dynamics are changing. The push towards at-home and cloud-based production is changing the way programming is being produced. Garvin: Yes, I think the industry is healthy. I expect the market to be fairly stable with possible expansion resulting from esports.

Greene: Yes — better than healthy, actually. We’re on track to deliver our best year ever in 2017. Why? New business, growing existing business, and adding services to help our clients and partners. We are budgeting for modest growth in 2018 and have some aggressive goals with specific strategy for ’19 and beyond.

Lewis: We see growth and change right now. Remaining agile and adaptable and paying close attention to trends and client needs is paramount. Each new truck build must reflect the constant change in the market; there’s no more “cookie-cutter” builds for us.

Rubenstein: From where we stand as a company, yes. As the networks and our other partners search for more innovative and cost-effective ways to receive quality produced content, we have proven to be an even more viable solution. Every year, the demand for our services has grown. We’ve ensured that hundreds of events get produced, and crews across the country stay involved. The growth of the industry will continue, and our capacity is growing to include a brand-new 32-ft. expando, eight-camera, 4K-ready truck and a 1080p modular flypack. Snyder: The remote-production business is healthy and growing by event count annually. More assets are

Executive Perspectives

As REMI and at-home productions become more popular, what is the effect on your business? Carlyle: We are embracing. We built a studio at our home base, so we can offer both sides: the onsite [facility] and the control room back home, where we do 35-40 [events per year]. We’ve also adapted our older trucks so they can be a regular mobile one day and a REMI truck the next day. We also two dedicated REMI trucks.

Garvin: The impact is modest so far. But, as it grows, we will be developing innovative solutions to make [at-home productions] better and easier.

Farrell: These new ways of doing production are shifting work away from certain types of traditional facilities, [particularly] the regular “regional” [trucks]. And repurposing current facilities does not really work from an ROI standpoint; there are too many assets on a truck that are not used in at-home productions. As those demands increase, I think you will see more purpose-built trucks. Greene: We see opportunity. We are in the client-services business and take much pride in delivering options to our clients’ needs. REMI and at-home productions are great options for selected remotes, and we’re happy to play in that space if it solves the needs of our clients.

Levine: We are adapting to the change and looking for other opportunities to use our mobile units in the REMI model to support our clients as long as the schedule works. We are also building REMI-specific studios for customers. Lewis: We’re seeing steady expansion as this is now our primary market sector, and we’ve been an active player since the beginning. More than any other sector, college Olympic sports are driving innovation in new production workflows, such as REMI– and TriCaster-trailer–type productions. Rubenstein: It has had a positive effect on Ross MP. As we continue to evolve, we have remained a valued option [for at-home productions]. Snyder: The production techniques of REMI and at-home productions challenge our industry to be more efficient and focus our energy where clients want them focused. We all have to adapt.

Taubman: We’re beginning to [work] in that market, and our biggest challenge right now is, every entity who’s doing REMI is doing it differently. So it’s hard for us to launch a standardized platform. Fox, ESPN, Pac-12, and Big Ten are all different. We would like to see a conversation where we can figure out a standard platform for REMI that we can deploy and add to our trucks and service our clients that way. Until we get a standardized way of doing REMI, it’s going to be tough to react to all of our client’s needs.

Esports is a hot new property. Are you seeing more demand for esports-production facilities, or do you expect to in the future? If not, in what sector are you seeing the most growth? Carlyle: I think esports is definitely going to grow. Where it’s going to end up is still to be determined. Is it going to end up on broadcast? I don’t know. [For example], Heroes of the Dorm used to be on ESPN and [left] to go to Facebook, [which] could offer a larger audience. Aside from that, we’re seeing growth in terms of overall events on the air. We don’t see large growth in the big markets — there are no more NFL or CFL games — but there are plenty of smaller [shows] both streaming and on linear broadcast. We’re also definitely seeing a resurgence in entertainment shows. Farrell: Esports is one of those segments that no one was thinking about five years ago, but the audience is so huge it is hard not to give it a hard look now. I think college continues to be the growth leader with schools and sports that were never broadcast before seeing coverage of some type.

Garvin: Very possibly, there could be [growth in esports], but it is still modest compared with traditional and major-league sports.

Greene: I’m excited by the opportunities in esports, and we are eager to get involved in this space. In addition, I think, any time there’s change in our industry, growth is a product for those that accept it and effectively 26

Executive Perspectives

continued from page 26 manage their organizations to be nimble. For IMSP, it isn’t in one specific area we’re experiencing growth but small percentages from all sectors.

Levine: Absolutely, we see growth in esports as well as in streaming. Lewis: College continues to increase for us, as well as streaming. Corporate clients are making much more use of streaming technologies, and their demand for higher production values is an excellent opportunity for small and midsize production trucks.

Rubenstein: We have been able to play a role in esports already, providing facilities and crew for several tournaments, with more on the horizon. We’ve invested in converting our facilities to 1080p-capable and acquired all the needed cameras and equipment. We are also still seeing a lot of growth in college-sports properties. Snyder: We are seeing new growth in non-traditional sports and events, like esports, while mainstream sports shows are still growing in size and scope. Esports has been an important part of Lyon Video’s business for many years; we have been lucky to work with several organizations that have been producing content. Lyon Video has developed an understanding of the unique needs of their production process so we support their production team’s creative vision.

100%

Sullivan: College-conference networks are definitely bumping up demand on the low end, and that’s been happening for some time now.

What impact do you believe industry consolidation over the past few years has had on the business? Will this trend continue? Farrell: More consolidation is inevitable. It is making stronger companies that can service a wider range of business, but the downside could be a loss of customer service.

Greene: I believe, the larger companies get, the more challenging it can be to offer the type of client service our partners expect and frankly deserve. Consolidation isn’t new to our space. I believe you have to determine what you’re really good at and what you’re better at than anyone else and then continue to super-serve those that trust you with their business. Will consolidation continue? Of course.

Percentage of survey respondents who answered YES to “Do you consider the current state of the remote-production business healthy?”

Levine: NEP’s growth has given us the ability to offer a wide range of services to customers in the U.S. and around the globe. Our collective talent and team efforts are beneficial to our clients. Lewis: I think it’s inevitable that we will see consolidation continue. With the much greater variety of production models and workflows that we now see in sports, I expect that many future consolidations will be driven by the desire to acquire expertise and technical diversity, rather than just increasing a truck fleet count or adding contracts to the portfolio.

Rubenstein: I think it’s always a plus when like-minded companies work together. Consolidation is good. Snyder: Industry consolidation is pushing the remote-production world to become just that: a worldwide enterprise ignoring geographical boundaries. Organizations who ignore the globalization of remote production will cease to be relevant. This is being led by rights and rightsholders’ national coverage of international events. To be competitive in this marketplace, consolidation may need to accelerate.

Sullivan: In my view, consolidation will never stop; it’s going to happen. There is always a reason to look at consolidating within the industry or an affiliated field. The big question always is, is the reason to consolidate compelling enough to do it? 30

Executive Perspectives

What technical challenges are the most vexing for your engineering team today? Carlyle: I think IP is going to be our next technical challenge; we are finding that it’s a different skill set. You’ve got to make time to dig into IP, and, if your engineers are good, they will figure it out. HDR is definitely an area that we have to keep on top of. I think we dedicated a lot of time last year and this year and are getting more and more familiar with it. Greene: I think the technical challenges in our space are more about how we design and populate our trucks and ensure our ability to anticipate our clients’ future needs. We’re lucky to have a deep bench of incredibly smart engineers and operations people that stay on top of technology trends and changes.

Levine: Our challenge will always be keeping up with the constant technology changes and the timing of investments. We have successfully moved into the IP world but are now waiting for manufacturers to catch up. Sullivan: Our technical team is trying to meet the conflicting needs of doing REMI-style events while also planning for the yet to be determined UHD formats. That’s a challenging balance.

Taubman: The IP transition continues to be top of mind for us. We’re on the cusp of SMPTE 2110 products and native edge devices. I think our trickiest topic right now is trying to make the correct purchasing decisions that keep our eye firmly on the future. We’re trying to make an investment today that’s going to take us 10 years down the road, and we’ve got to be really careful as we do that.

Turk: As the IT and broadcast worlds have combined, we must train all our engineers on complicated, robust networks. You can’t just put everything on one network anymore. NEP has invested significant time and resources to educate engineering staff; we designed a training course with the goal of teaching our broadcast engineers the architecture and rules you have to work by. We also stress the weaknesses and advantage of a layered network so the engineers onsite are prepared for all situations.

Wehner: Our biggest challenge is always fitting as much technology and flexibility into a mobile unit within the weight and space limitations. I think we do a very good job with this, but it’s a constant challenge as the technology changes and grows.

Outside of technological challenges, what are your biggest concerns?

Carlyle: As always, I think it’s succession planning — whether it’s crews, management staff, or engineering. We have to prepare the next generation. So I would say my biggest concern right now is people. The other thing we focus on is policies and procedures, especially the safety element. We’ve spent quite a bit of time training our staff about proper and safe practices and procedures. Farrell: Controlling costs is our biggest challenge. The clients want events done for less, but our costs are increasing. The margins are getting more and more narrow. Garvin: Travel and crew costs are always a concern. Levine: We must always stay on top of managing cost. This is on everyone’s to- do list. Working as partners with our clients allows us to look for cost-efficient solutions [and] helps keep the business sustainable.

Lewis: Being lumped in with the commercial-trucking industry with little regard for the uniqueness of our business and our mission profiles definitely presents significant challenges as new regulations are imposed. Rubenstein: I am always concerned that the cost of doing business will continue to increase as networks look for cost advantages. It’s a balance we have managed well, and we will continue to strive to do so.

Snyder: Government-legislation inconsistency is challenging for our business. A large part of what our clients’ management and Lyon Video’s management do is “project” what will happen years in advance. To coin a phrase from football, if we do not know where the yardsticks are going to be placed, how do we know how far we need to drive the ball? With legislation in upheaval, projections take more time and are less accurate. This leads the content community to be more conservative and not take chances on new content or produce content that has a more marginal potential return. continued on page 38 34

Sullivan: A big part of it comes down to stability and leadership of our [federal] government. That means both the Executive Branch and Congress. Events in Washington have an impact on everything that we do.

Are you planning for the potential rise of 4K and/or HDR? What is your longterm roadmap for both? Garvin: We have one 4K mobile unit and

are building all new trucks to be 4K-ready. The 3G infrastructure is okay for now but won’t be adequate for 4K starting in mid 2018 and will require 12G or IP infrastructure. We are also seeing growing interest in HDR and have three trucks with HDR[-capable equipment]. All of our trucks will be HDR going forward. We think there will be a lot of interest in 1080p HDR, but we could even do 1080i HDR if needed. And we also plan to do HDR 4K with our 4K trucks.

Johnson: The good news is that we’ve been spending lots of time in this space and have been happily servicing 4K. I think we’ve pretty much mastered it, and it’s mapped itself out. Now it’s about people becoming comfortable and actually using that format. Almost every manufacturer has support for it, and now it’s about finding the right opportunities. It’s great to see more and more people doing [HD and 4K] shadow cuts; I think that is where the future has to be. Taubman: We modified River Hawk [in 2015] for MLB Network Showcase in 4K. And we took what we

learned and baked it into every one of our trucks built subsequently, all [four of which] are native 4K. We also have clients asking to add HDR on top of 4K and others wanting to do 1080p60 HDR, [and] any truck that has legitimate 4K capability also has 60p HDR capability. In addition, all of our trucks built since 2010 with 3G and 60p capability are also HDR[-capable]; you just need to add HDR cameras, recording devices, and up/ down/crossconversion.

Turk: We have always listened to our clients and provided the appropriate facility for their needs. We have experience in 4K, 4K HDR, and 1080p HDR. Our fleet has the flexibility to provide any of these formats. Our goal is to provide a flexible solution that easily transitions to these new formats as our clients transition their networks.

The SMPTE ST 2110 standards suite for IP video has arrived. What does it mean for you and your team? Johnson: The arrival of SMPTE 2110 is [exciting]. Lots of people have been operating in IP and have been able to produce in that. 2110 simply means that now we’re arriving at a common standard that more manufacturers can effectively interchange based on.

Snyder: The formalization of the SMPTE standard means that the equipment manufacturers can make equipment that conforms to this standard without fear of [its] being [made obsolete]. We expect next-generation equipment will arrive soon and be more mainstream and thus less expensive while being able to be interconnected IP without a PhD working at the local level. The transition will require this additional format, as well as current and legacy formats for all ... to take in, monitor, and route out.

Taubman: We designed Yogi, [our IP-based mobile unit launched in March], with SMPTE 2110 in mind. continued on page 42 38

Executive Perspectives

continued from page 38 We’re taking that further step with 79 [launching in Q1 2018] by architecting it in a similar way. There are a lot of topics with IP and SMPTE 2110 at the moment, including IP opening up the door for edge devices and how those edge devices are going to connect to the IP core. Today what we can take delivery of is a 10-gig infrastructure, but I think that’s pretty rapidly going to give way to a 25-gig infrastructure.

Turk: We are excited to be able to remove external IP-to-SDI converters from our existing system. When IP is more than just a router, we will be able to see the real benefits of an IP infrastructure. This is all very new, so we are waiting to see how different manufacturers implement it. Will everything be plug-and-play? Will every system participate in NMOS?

What is your philosophy concerning the use of IP routing vs. traditional baseband?

40%

40%

We are committed to baseband signal IP will be in all of transport for the our future truck foreseeable builds. future. 20% We will use IP in trucks built for large shows.

Wehner: I don’t believe SMPTE 2110 means much for us in the immediate future. It solves several of the shortcomings of the other IP standards, so this is encouraging long term. Now that SMPTE 2110 is a standard, it’s my hope that we will start seeing it as a native option in all equipment so we can have a good end-to-end IP solution.

How quickly are you moving away from baseband infrastructure to IP? If you were launching a truck today, would you build it around an IP or an SDI router?

Farrell: The 3G infrastructure is a crutch for 4K. 12G will make 4K much easier to do in the field. Johnson: We have had an all-IP infrastructure on our managed fiber network for several years. On the truck side, not so much. We’ve taken a look at it, and we’ve not been happy with what we could accomplish at this point in time. Others are venturing into that space, and many are doing an IP/SDI hybrid [model]. I do hope that [the standardization of ] SMPTE 2110 will lead to significant implementation of end-to-end IP. End-to-end is key because it doesn’t make sense for us to have a whole bunch of gateway devices to connect SDI devices to an IP core. End-to-end IP with a very small number of gateway devices — that’s our target.

Turk: As more pieces of gear with IP inputs or outputs are available, the transition is becoming easier. We currently have IP systems that are based more on size and remote I/O. We look at each project and make the best decision for that clients’ needs. We are always thinking about new technologies and the advantages they will bring to our company and our clients. Taubman: For us specifically, there’s no sense in putting anything but an IP router into an A-unit build at this point. We were driven to IP more because of the scale required than IP for IP’s sake. To hit the kind of numbers we needed in terms of scale today, you can’t do it in SDI. So, yes, we are IP all-in. And now, the further along we get, we’re starting to explore what we can do with IP, like having native edge devices. Wehner: We continue to build our mobile units around an SDI router, [mainly] to avoid using conversion [gateways] for the equipment that is not IP-ready. Gateways increase the cost significantly and add a potential failure point so this is something we would like to avoid. An SDI router is still able to meet our needs so we will continue to install them in our mobile units for the foreseeable future. There will be a tipping point where enough equipment will support IP and we will make the change to an all-IP infrastructure.

Executive Perspectives

Is there a specific technology (or technologies) that clients are demanding more these days? Johnson: I think it continues to be specialty cameras — whether you’re talking about VR presentation, high frame rates, 4K, unique POV opportunities, drone-based [tools], SkyCams, and even double SkyCams now. Even what people are doing to extrapolate some of that camera information with the 360 systems creating the player’s-eye view. Those unique camera viewpoints are what catch people’s eye. Taubman: For the [national-]level games, you basically have to come to the party armed with [Sony HDC] 4300’s with the ability to [activate a game-by-game license] for high frame rate, 4K, and soon HDR anywhere they may want on the field. That’s become the standard for all these big productions. Early in the football season, for example, [broadcasters] don’t necessarily want high frame rate at every camera position. But, as the season goes and we get into postseason and then the Super Bowl, that has to evolve into an all–high-framerate infrastructure. We’ve got to have that [licensing model] to enable that. Wehner: We continue to see strong demand for super-motion (SSMO) cameras on our mobile units as part of the normal complement. Several years ago, we started providing one SSMO camera per mobile unit, then two, and now we are providing four as a normal complement on several mobile units. I expect this demand to continue because it adds significant production value to the broadcasts.

Are you seeing any other major engineering/design/technical trends in the truck business? What should the community be keeping an eye on that is currently under the radar? Garvin: 1080p HDR combined with super-slo-mo with HDR looks very promising. Johnson: Certainly, the opportunity that IP brings to extend the truck and make things more accessible from a distance is going to be a big part of our design. How we monitor and support these systems will be important because it’s going to become more complicated. We have to be mindful of interruptions or failures, which can happen in the IT world, and make sure that we’ve got the support to keep us active and on-air.

Snyder: Automation will be interesting to follow as it changes many dynamics we all believed to be the

“normal” in remote production. Automation and machine learning have the potential to be disruptive, while also potentially being very helpful to reduce staff on remote productions.

Taubman: IP is here to stay for sure. HDR is coming on strong. 4K is holding on. There have been some predictions that 4K was going to give way to 60p HDR, and that’s quite possible, but the jury’s still out on that. Regardless, all the bits and pieces you need to be flexible for all those scenarios is what we’re keeping an eye on — like conversion and edge devices. We’re just trying to make sure we’re making good decisions and the stuff we buy today is going to be useful for us in eight to 10 years. Turk: More and more clients are asking about IP audio networks (for example, Dante or AES67). This revolutionized the intercom and audio world. No more two-wire power supplies and large booth kits. Now it can be done through a small POE switch. No more serial data going all over the stadium; it’s an Ethernet port off the closest switch. As a result, most productions become a little easier and take a little less time to set up. That said, freelance audio technicians need to be trained; if they do not understand these IP systems, a small problem can quickly grow into a major one. We all must embrace these changes and continue to educate ourselves about them. If you’re not learning, you’re not keeping up. Wehner: I am starting to see more connectivity from the mobile unit to the studio. We are designing our mobile units to easily become an extension of the studio. This allows everybody at the studio to be able to use the mobile-unit resources to better supplement their studio show or get footage to the web faster. Tallies, intercom, and the replay network will all be connected so everything is available to anybody that wants it. This connectivity has been discussed for several years; however, I’m starting to see it finally happen as faster connections between the venues and studios are becoming available.

ROAD 2017 IN REVIEW S R O I R R WA

2017 was an eventful year for sports production, with marquee events like the College Football Playoff National Championship Game, Super Bowl, and NBA and MLB All-Star Games test-driving new technologies and production workflows, and annual tournaments like NCAA’s March Madness, U.S. Open golf, and US Open tennis using the best tools that sports broadcasting has to offer to spotlight the best in their respective sports. Add in the FIFA Confederations Cup in Moscow as well as the Daytona 500, Stanley Cup Final, and X Games Minneapolis — not to mention, a wide range of European sports productions — and 2017 certainly shaped up as quite the year for live sports production. And, with the 2018 Winter Olympic Games and FIFA World Cup on the horizon, it’s only the beginning. Here’s a look at some of the highlights from the past year.

COLLEGE FOOTBALL PLAYOFF NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP GAME RAYMOND JAMES STADIUM, TAMPA, FL

T

he College Football Playoff National Championship Game is the first truly big day on the sports-production calendar, and ESPN again treated the game like the crown jewel that it is, with a production stunning in both scope and scale. There were 111 cameras inside the stadium supporting the network’s efforts in producing the main game telecast, the 13 additional MegaCast options, and three studio sets around the building. Ninety-five of those cameras were pointed at the game between Clemson and Alabama (the Tigers defeated the Crimson Tide 35-31), with nine super-slow-motion cameras and five 4K-capable cameras accompanying. Pylon cameras were on the four corners of each end zone, and cameras were strategically placed to capture each important boundary from the sidelines to the goal lines. “We’ve got every line covered,” said Ed Placey, senior coordinating producer, ESPN, prior to the game. “We just hope we have a great game where we can show it all off.” Among the camera highlights was a collection of Sony’s HDC4800’s, which debuted at the 2016 NAB Show. The camera is capable of 8X super-slo-mo in 4K and 16X when shooting in HD. A few Canon DIGISUPER 95 telephoto lenses were deployed on some of the cameras at valuable positions.

in key locations — goal line, end line, sidelines — so that the production team could zoom in for high-resolution close-ups. And two Sony HDC-4800 cameras were on hand for super-slomo coverage. Fox Sports also took pylon cameras to the next level with a simple change: the cameras were angled at 45 degrees rather than perpendicular to the lines. “What we like about it is that you can see more of the field. We can potentially do a replay that goes from one camera in the pylon to the next,” said Davies. “And, now that the cameras are HD, it’s shocking how good they are.” Game Creek Video’s Encore production unit made its Super Bowl debut, and Cleatus, which is normally deployed by another network under a different name, was used for pregame coverage. Also on hand at the stadium was Game Creek’s Chesapeake, which was used for the red-carpet show. NEP, meanwhile, handled Fox production needs at Discovery Green with ND1 on hand for the full week of programming. The shows were cut in the ND1 unit and delivered to Pico, Fox’s Los Angeles facility, for graphics insertion. — Ken Kerschbaumer The Fox Sports pre-game set was nestled into the corner of NRG Stadium behind the Patriots end zone.

NBA ALL-STAR GAME SMOOTHIE KING CENTER, NEW ORLEANS

N

ew Orleans hosted the NBA All-Star Weekend only three years after hosting the 2014 festivities. Typically, when a sports event returns to the same city that quickly, the production philosophy remains the same. That was not the case for Turner Sports. “This is a very different show than it was three years ago,” said Chris Brown, senior director, technical operations, Turner Sports. “The big difference is the deliverables and a compelling basketball game that uses as much technology as we can cram.” Among the biggest changes? Turner’s NBA on TNT road show, a 70,000-sq.-ft. fan-activation effort that includes a set for the Inside the NBA studio show, concerts, the final of the Dew NBA 3X three-on-three tournament, interactive fan experiences, basketball clinics, and pop-up stores. It was located at Champions Square, about 1,500 ft. from the Smoothie King Center, which hosted the Rising Stars Challenge on Friday, All-Star Saturday Night on Saturday, and the All-Star Game on Sunday. NEP played a big role in Turner’s production of the weekend’s activities with SS24 at the center of the game coverage, NCP10 NEP had a big presence in the Big Easy in support of Turner Sports.

for All-Star Saturday night, NCP 11 for the studio show, NCP8 for the entertainment and halftime elements, and ND1 for transmission and more. The use of ND1 continued to evolve at the All-Star Game. Turner put 58 cameras to use inside the Smoothie King Center for both the on-the-court and TNT studio coverage (the worldfeed production also had unilateral cameras because the game was seen in 215 countries and territories and in 49 languages). One exciting new production tool was addition of a Spidercam for coverage of the All-Star Saturday Night activities: the slamdunk contest, three-point shooting contest, and skills challenge. It was also the first time a cabled camera flew over the court during on-court action. — KK

DAYTONA 500 DAYTONA INTERNATIONAL SPEEDWAY, DAYTONA BEACH, FL FEBRUARY 26

T

he Super Bowl of motorsports, the Daytona 500 shifted into high gear on Fox Sports. Among returning technology favorites was Gophercam (for its ninth season), and there were also some new elements: two dedicated Car Channels on the Fox Sports GO app, a “playbook” for the 3D-cutaway car that helped NASCAR analyst Larry McReynolds get analysis on-air more quickly, more high-speed cameras (two high-framerate 4K Sony HDC-4800 cameras for super zoom, four super-slomo HD units, two Inertia Unlimited X-Mos), and eight in-car camera packages. “Daytona is the first race [of the season], and we want to put resources into it,” said Mike Davies, SVP, technical and field operations, Fox Sports. “It’s helpful that we are here for two weeks as we can test things and see what sticks for the season.” Overall, Fox deployed 20 manned cameras along with the previously mentioned in-track, in-car, and high-speed cameras. Also used were 10 robotic cameras mounted around the track, three robotic cameras at the Hollywood Hotel studio set, a

jib camera with augmented reality, four RF roving pit/garage cameras, two in-car gyro-cams, and more than 150 microphones. Game Creek Video was once again on hand for Fox Sports at the Daytona 500, and 2017 marked the 11th straight event with the FX production unit at the center of the Fox operation. The Game Creek presence at the race comprised FX A, B, and D units; Edit 1 and 2; and a Robo trailer. The two Edit units and the Robo were deployed for the Super Bowl and made the trip to Daytona directly from Houston. — KK

he collaborative effort of CBS Sports and Turner Sports continued with the operations and engineering at this year’s Final Four, but it was an “all-CBS” year, and longtime CBS Sports star Patty Power took the helm, overseeing the production compound. “It’s been really great,” said Power, who is EVP, operations

and engineering. “There are so many good people in place that have been here doing this for so long. Where I’m coming from is trying to find ways to do things more effectively. I want us to be smart about it. There are little tweaks here and there and those ideas I get to implement now.” A total of 50 cameras were inside the University of Phoenix Stadium bowl, covering both game action and a studio set located in the student section behind one of the baskets. There was a collection of 4K cameras on the backboards. Nine Sony HDC-4300’s were in various positions shooting at 8X superslow-motion, and Bexel’s new Clarity 800 camera was also lodged into the base of one of the backboards, shooting at 8X. Also back in the mix were RailCam, SkyCam Wildcat, and a fixed-wing aircraft providing aerial views from above the domed stadium. Gone were the “Team Stream” telecasts that CBS and Turner offered previously, although there is a strong possibility that the Team Streams will return when some of the Final Four games return to Turner networks in 2018. In the compound, producer Mark Wolf and director Bob Fishman led the production team from F&F Productions’ GTX16, which served as the main game truck. The compound was a little leaner this year, with the absence of the extra Team Stream telecasts, but the footprint was still robust and included nine full-expando mobile units. — BC Turner and CBS erected two sets on the “Great Lawn” outside University of Phoenix Stadium.

STANLEY CUP FINAL BRIDGESTONE ARENA, NASHVILLE, AND PPG PAINTS ARENA, PITTSBURGH

N

BC Sports Group deployed its largest contingent yet for Stanley Cup coverage: 155 technicians translated one of the more compelling narratives in recent NHL history — Nashville Predators’ Cinderella theme contrasted nicely with the Pittsburgh Penguins’ crafty-veteran narrative — into gripping must-see TV at home. This year, a total of eight super-slow-motion cameras were deployed: five Sony HDC-4300’s and three Grass Valley LDK highspeed robotic cams, up from two last year. NBCSN provided all but one, which was shared with Canada-rights holder Rogers TV.

MAY 29 – JUNE 11 NBC also deployed a Sony HDC-4800 4K camera in an innovative configuration. “Traditionally, we’d have the 4K camera high and wide, but, this year, we wanted to bring the 4K down closer to the rink and shoot the game a little differently, from an angle closer to the ice,” explained NBC Sports Director Charlie Dammeyer. “The camera is in a low slash position, and the operator shoots the game fairly tight. This allows us to maintain the 4K clarity when we zoom in on points of emphasis during replay sequences.” Viewers saw these shots as part of NBCee IT, which allowed the broadcast team to zoom in on a shot and pan around a frame. For specialty cameras, NBC also used TVA’s robotic netcams, as well as robotic “ankle cams,” positioned on the left and right dasher boards. “We’re putting all [available resources] into the basket in order to get the best show out there,” said Dammeyer. The Nashville games were produced from NEP ND6 and ST28 B units; ND5 and ST32 were onsite in Pittsburgh. The production was fairly conventional: all prerecorded segments were shot on off-days, then transferred to and edited at NBC’s Stamford, CT, facility. — Dan Daley NBC Sports’ primary production in Nashville was located in NEP’s ND6.

ox Sports broadcast its first-ever U.S. Open golf coverage, from Chambers Bay outside Seattle, in 2015, and the 2017 show continued to grow from that, with shot-tracing technology on every hole, three holes of 4K coverage, and an increased presence by other Fox networks. All the shows done for Fox Business Channel, FS1, and other Fox properties were handled by the core Fox Sports production team. “They aren’t standalone; they are part of our main production setup,” explained Brad Cheney, VP, field operations and engineering, Fox Sports. “We’re extremely happy with how all of those extra shows have gone. And it’s just proof of what everyone can get done, from producer Mark Loomis and director Steve Beim to the technicians and our vendors.” Once again, Game Creek Video was onsite in force, with the Encore production unit at the center of the on-course coverage. The only modification from previous lineups was that Maverick replaced Glory for 4K coverage of Holes 13, 14, and 15. Because Maverick had been used by DirecTV at The Masters, rolling it in for the U.S. Open made 4K integration easier because the truck was already set from an engineering standpoint. The HD coverage on those holes relied on Sony HDC-4300 cameras outputting two signals, a 4K and a 720p, via the camera-control unit (CCU).

The core of the production relied on 110 cameras and 216 microphones, including 26 wireless cameras, 31 wired cameras (12 with 100X Canon lenses, 19 with 95X Canon lenses), three Inertia Unlimited X-Mo cameras, and a Sony HDC-4800 operating at 960 fps. Three RF Tracer cameras were also in use. The Towercam, which allows a camera to be raised 18 ft. into the air, was back but in a bigger way: it was now on a Gator tractor from John Deere. A 75-ft. Strada crane and four jib cameras were also onsite. — KK

FIFA CONFEDERATIONS CUP FINAL ST. PETERSBURG STADIUM, ST. PETERSBURG, RUSSIA

uring the FIFA Confederations Cup final between Chile and Germany, the highlights on the pitch were plentiful, but it was behind the scenes where the international broadcasting world eagerly deployed the very latest technology to ensure the best possible TV-viewing experience for football fans around the world. “The tournament was a great success, and, while I know there might be a tendency to think of the FIFA Confederations Cup 2017 as a test event for the FIFA World Cup, it’s actually a huge event in its own right,” said Florin Mitu, head of host-broadcast production, FIFA. “The world was watching, and we had 84 rightsholders, 90 non-rightsholders, more than 2,000 accredited TV representatives, and a host-broadcast staff of more than 800

onsite. These numbers speak for themselves, and it’s without doubt one of our biggest tournament operations.” The FIFA Confederations Cup took place across four stadiums with the Zenit Arena in St. Petersburg acting as host to the International Broadcast Coordination Center (IBCC) and serving as test bed for the portable cabins, technical infrastructure, and workflows that the FIFA host-broadcast–production team will deploy for each of the 12 stadiums for the 2018 World Cup. ARD/ ZDF, Fox Sports, Telemundo, NHK, TV Globo Brazil, Megavision Chile, and DirecTV LATAM were onsite at the IBCC sharing a total space of approximately 900 sq. meters. The core production of the FIFA Confederations Cup Final made use of five UHD HDR cameras and 15 HD HDR cameras (all using the Slog-3 gamma curve) as well as HD SDR cameras. Moreover, the Sony HDRC-4000 production converter helped convert HD SDR and HD HDR signals into UHD HDR signals, and the FIFA MAX server operated in 1080p mode. An interesting change in the production of the matches was the decision to replace the HDC-4300 on the camera 1 position with a Sony PMW-F55 camera equipped with a Cabrio lens from the beginning of the tournament. — KK Florin Mitu, Head of Host Broadcast Production at FIFA

or Fox Sports, the MLB All-Star Game is not only a chance to deploy its proven production tools but also an opportunity to test technologies that are just coming of age. For the 2017 edition, Fox rolled out one of the most robust high-speed– camera complements and on-field–audio setups ever for a baseball game, along with Game Creek Video’s new 4K-capable, IP-router–based Yogi mobile unit. “As always, the All-Star Game brings a chance to try new technologies out and see what sticks for postseason baseball and our other [properties],” said Mike Davies, SVP, technical and field operations, Fox Sports. “And we have amazing and very flexible operations and engineering teams here that can roll with the punches when it comes to [new technology].” Game Creek’s Yogi A and B units, launched in March 2017, primarily served YES Network during the MLB season. The 4K-capable mobile unit, which features an IP core, was also deployed for Fox’s All-Star Game and served as the primary truck for its World Series coverage in LA. The truck, which can support up to 20 Sony HDC-4300 cameras running in 4K, lends itself to Fox’s high-speed–camera–heavy All-Star plans.

MOBILE SPORTS PRODUCTION YEARBOOK 2018

“Yogi [affords us] all the ability to have several 4300 cameras as well as our 4800’s,” said Francisco Contreras, director, field operations, Fox Sports. “It enables us to do all the 4300 and 4800 high-speed cameras that we want to [deploy] today but also [prepares us for] 4K or 1080p HDR or anything else in the future. And the footprint is much bigger for us, which is very nice.” In all, Fox Sports deployed eight high-speed–camera systems for the All-Star Game: three Sony HDC-4300’s in 6X slo-mo mode (all in centerfield), two HDC-4800’s shooting at 16X (mid first and mid third), a Fletcher robo with a Sony HDC-P43 POV cam (at mid home), and two Phantoms provided by Inertia Unlimited (at low first and low third). — Jason Dachman One of two Sony HDC-4800 cameras deployed by Fox in 16X slo-mo mode

X GAMES MINNEAPOLIS U.S. BANK STADIUM, MINNEAPOLIS JULY 13 – 16

O

ver the summer, Downtown Minneapolis came alive with the sounds of revving dirt-bike engines, clapping skateboards, and wailing rock music as the 23rd edition of the Summer X Games descended on the Midwest. With 18½ hours of linear-television programming and a wallto-wall social-media and live-streaming plan, ESPN worked alongside new production partner Echo Entertainment to make television magic. The two entities kicked off their relationship at Winter X Games in Aspen in January 2017 and were bullish on the relationship heading into their first Summer X Games together. “I’ve been in the action-sports world for a long time,” said Hugh Arian, president, Echo Entertainment, “and it’s the most collaborative [event] we’ve ever worked on.” ESPN and Echo established 73 camera positions inside (and outside when needed) U.S. Bank Stadium. Of those, 43 were handhelds (many receiving RF support from BSI), 13 were hard, 10 were Sony HDC-4300’s for super-slo-mo capture and playback, seven were POVs, and four were robotics; Spidercam provided

aerial shots from inside the stadium bowl. All resources were connected to an all-Dome Productions compound in the stadium’s indoor truck dock. Dome supplied four A units and a B unit (which played host to the VR production). BSI had an RF-support vehicle, and two satellite trucks provided full satellite transmission to ESPN headquarters in Bristol, CT. “Kids are consuming content differently,” said Tim Reed, VP, X Games, ESPN, who worked his 21st U.S. X Games and has been working the property since 1997. “The biggest thing that we do is try to remain aware of what [new] audiences want. They want authentic content, a lot of personality, and brands that stand for something and have an identity.” — BC The high-tech U.S. Bank Stadium provided an elite infrastructure from which ESPN and Echo Entertainment could broadcast.

AUGUST 22 – SEPTEMBER 10

n the first two years as host broadcaster and sole domesticrights holder of the US Open, ESPN created a well-oiled machine for its colossal production operation at the NTC. In Year 3 of the 11-year rights deal, with a highly efficient model in full swing, ESPN continued to add to its sizable list of responsibilities onsite while also looking to innovate with Front Row Cam, Silvus Mesh Network, Alteros 6.5-GHz wireless-mic system, Simply Live ViBox all-in-one production system, and other new technologies. “Every year is always fresh, but, certainly, being in Year 3 helps tremendously,” said Terry Brady, director of remote operations, ESPN. “I would say, to some extent, [we’ve gotten into a groove], which has allowed us the opportunity to look at some unique technology this year. At the USTA’s request, we’ve also taken on the

responsibility of distribution to unilateral broadcasters, which was formerly not handled by ESPN. Every year, we add a little something.” To support the USTA’s rightsholders onsite, ESPN enlisted Gearhouse Broadcast (which also integrated the NTC Broadcast Center) to create a single core infrastructure, dubbed the Unilateral Distribution Center (UDC). The TOC-style operation takes in 140 feeds from ESPN, distributing them to unilateral broadcasters and to the USTA’s US Open world feed. In addition to Gearhouse, NEP assisted the USTA with the organization and distribution of feeds. ESPN took over unilateral-content distribution to rightsholders and enlisted Gearhouse Broadcast to construct the UDC. ESPN’s massive camera complement at the NTC featured an exciting newcomer: the telescope-like Front Row Cam, which was used in various court-level positions at the Grandstand, including on the back wall and along the railing next to the line judge. All the starring camera systems from recent ESPN US Open productions were on hand, including Intel’s 28-camera freeD 360-degree replay system, a SpiderCam aerial system, a RailCam, and an NAC Hi-Motion II ultra-slo-mo at Arthur Ashe Stadium. Also among ESPN’s 100-plus complement of cameras (including 60 broadcast cameras) were a HoistCam, four 3X super-slo-mos, 13 robos, four RF cameras, and five jibs. — JD ESPN took over unilateral-content distribution to rightsholders this year.

DOME PRODUCTIONS Vista Completes 4K-Capable–Truck Trifecta By Karen Hogan Ketchum

D

ome Productions continues its commitment to 4K-native mobile units with the launch of its third. Following in the footsteps of Pioneer and Trillium, Vista is the latest generation and most technologically advanced of Dome’s multiformat trucks capable of producing in 4K UHD. Vista hit the road in July at BMO Field in Toronto, producing a Major League Soccer match between Toronto FC and New York FC live on TSN. Since then, the 53-ft. expando has done a wide variety of sports events — including CFL, NHL, and horse racing — and entertainment shows. “The launch of Vista is another true testament to the qualifications and commitment of Dome’s innovative engineering team,” said SVP/GM Mary Ellen Carlyle, “who have been instrumental in the system design, wiring, and integration of Dome’s expanding fleet including 4K UHD trucks.” Ever since Dome Productions co-owners Bell Media and Rogers Media announced in early 2016 their intention to deliver NBA and NHL games live in 4K, Dome has targeted the 4K-production market. First, the company reconfigured its existing Trillium production truck to handle 4K while it worked on Pioneer, its first purpose-built 4K truck. Pioneer hit the road in July 2016. “That was really our first [move into] 4K,” said Director of Engineering Mike Johnson. “We modified a truck previously, but Pioneer was purpose-built 4K from the ground up. [With Vista,] we hoped that we might be able to take more advantage of IP serviceability, but we did not do that on Vista, so it stayed as an SDI truck. It’s a large router implementation of SDI, but it gives us that serviceability in 4K that we needed.” Dome Productions worked with Unity Systems Integration on the design of Vista, which, in addition to 4K UHD, can

Since debuting in July, Vista has supported a wide variety of sports events and entertainment shows.

produce in 720p, 1080i, or 1080p (50 or 60 fps). The truck is built around an Evertz EQX baseband router with 89x103 UHD video capacity or 558x576 3G-SDI video capacity — Dome’s largest matrix system to date. In addition, Dome installed a 4.5M/E Grass Valley K-Frame production switcher — 2M/E when operating in 4K UHD — as well as four EVS XT4K four-channel replay servers, one EVS UHD XT3 three-channel replay server, and one EVS XS4K four-channel SpotBox. The replay servers support native recording in a wide range of codecs and in multiple formats — 720p, 1080i, 1080p, and 2160p (4K UHD) — and also have the capability to capture high-frame-rate contribution from compatibly equipped cameras. The truck features a ChyronHego Mosaic XL for graphics and, in a first for Dome, a Calrec Apollo digital console for audio. “We made a conscious decision to upgrade the audio board,” said Carlyle, “because we want to play in that even bigger market.” Depending on whether Vista is producing an HD or a 4K UHD show, the truck is equipped with 10 Sony HDC-4300 cameras — which can be configured for 720p, 1080i, 1080p, or 4K60p — and a variety of Fujinon UHD lenses. According to Dome Productions, Vista is HDR-ready and capable of producing a 4K UHD feed in high dynamic range. Since 2016, Dome Productions has supported well over 300 sports and entertainment events live in 4K, and Vista will be instrumental in supporting the company’s ever-growing workload. For larger-scale shows, Vista easily integrates with any of Dome’s B units on the road today. “Based on building blocks that are industry-proven,” said Johnson, “Dome is excited for what Vista can deliver in meeting the most feature-rich production requirements for the sports and entertainment industry.”

F&F PRODUCTIONS GTX-18 Ushers in Company’s 4K HDR Era By Ken Kerschbaumer

F

&F Productions has entered the 4K HDR production business with the launch of its GTX-18 truck, which comprises a double-expando A unit and a B unit. The unit debuted the last weekend of July on a UFC PPV fight offered in UHD to AT&T Entertainment/DirecTV viewers. “We’ve had a number of customers who asked us about building a 1080p/HDR unit,” said F&F Productions President/ CEO George Orgera. “After rallying our team, we decided to build a 4K HDR mobile unit instead.” It was important, he explained, that the signal remain in native 4K UHD resolution throughout acquisition and distribution and that clients are pleased with the choices made, including fully unlocked Sony HDC-4300 cameras, 4K UHD lenses, and true 4K monitor walls throughout the unit. “There is a lot of uniqueness about GTX-18,” noted VP/GM Marc Orgera, “but the one thing we are hearing from our clients that matters the most is, it offers a complete 4K experience throughout. They are happy to have a one-stop mobile unit that can produce 4K HDR, 1080p HDR, 1080p, 1080i, 720p out of one unit.” The core of the new mobile is a Grass Valley K-Frame Kayenne Elite production switcher with 192 inputs/96 outputs and 9M/E with six downstream keyers per M/E programmable clean feed. A 4K monitor wall with 18 31-in. custom Boland 4K monitors is aboard to give the production team high-quality images. “When our clients are working on a 4K show,” noted Marc Orgera, “we thought it best that they see the same picture quality inside the mobile unit that is going out for transmission.

GTX-18’s monitor wall features 18 31-in. custom Boland 4K models.

The truck’s audio production centers on a Calrec Artemis Beam V8 digital console with Bluefin2.

We didn’t want to say no to offering them the true signal.” Routing is baseband, via an Evertz 560-input/1,134-output router and an Evertz EMR audio router (192x192 AES/48x96 stereo analog). “It’s baseband because of some heat issues that still exist,” said George Orgera, adding that VP, Engineering, Bill McKechney “still has some concerns, though our future mobile unit will be all IP-based.” The camera/lens complement comprises 14 Sony HDC-4300 and two Sony HDCP-43 cameras that are fully unlocked, four Sony super-slo-mo systems, and 17 Fujinon UHD lenses with eight of the new Fujinon 107x8.4 long lenses and nine handheld/ wide-angle lenses. The video area houses a Sony 30-in. BVMX 300-2 4K monitor and Tektronic 4K vectorscopes. The replay area boasts four 12-channel EVS HD XT4K systems with super-slo-mo, two EVS HD XFile3 archive stations, an EVS Sports Net3 hub, an IPDirector, eight KiPro UHD recorders with 1-TB drives, a Panasonic DVCPRO deck, and a Sony HDCAM deck. There are also four Blackmagic Design 4K Video Assist recorders with dual SD card and USB thumb drive. The audio area features a Calrec Artemis Beam V8 digital console with Bluefin2 (64 faders), Genelec 5.1-surround-sound monitoring, Yamaha SPX2000 multi-effects processor, Rane audio delays, dbx 166 XL compressors, two dbx 1046 quad compressors, and more. “It’s pretty exciting to have some of the most respected engineering teams from the networks walk through the mobile unit and compliment that it is the most capable 4K HDR unit on the road,” said McKechney. “It makes me very proud of our engineering team.”

GAME CREEK VIDEO Nitro, Yogi, Chesapeake, Edit 2 Make for Busy Year By Ken Kerschbaumer

G

ame Creek Video had a busy 2017, with the launch of four trucks: Nitro, Yogi, Chesapeake, and Edit 2. The first to hit the road was Nitro, home of the National Hot Rod Association’s 2017 production team, which revved into action the weekend of Feb. 9. “From our point of view, NHRA has a compact production that has a lot of stuff going on in a short amount of time,” said Jason Taubman, VP, design and new technology, Game Creek Video. “They need to be nimble for a main production that spans multiple days and requires material to be banked and then played back.” Nitro consists of a double-expando A unit (recommended working area is 64 x 24 ft.), housing the main production team, and a straight B unit, housing a production team focused on the in-venue production, an audio-submix area, and the equivalent of a master-control area for playout of previously recorded content. In the past, those activities required two separate trucks. The A unit will bring a new layout to the NHRA production: the front bench is along the side of the truck rather than facing the end of it. On board  are a 9 M/E Grass Valley Kayenne K-Frame production switcher with 192 inputs and 96 outputs; Calrec Artemis audio console; 576x1,152 Evertz EQX baseband video router; EMR audio router (384x384 AES, 256x256 MADI, 288x288 Analog, 128x128x16 HD-SDI Embedded); Boland video monitors (in both units); EVS XT3 replay servers; ChyronHego Mosaic XL for graphics; IHSE Draco Tera KVM Router; 10 Sony HDC-2500 cameras with Canon lenses; and a range of microphones from Sennheiser, Audio-Technica, Electro Voice, and Sony. “Also, with Nitro, we are deploying RTS OMNEO intercom for the first time, with all the internal keypanels now IP, thanks to the RTS KP5032 and KP4015,” said Taubman. OMNEO uses standard IP Ethernet, allowing it to be assembled into networks of two to 10,000 devices via Audinate’s Dante technology. NHRA Technology Executive Mike Rokosa said a move to IP (outside of the intercom) didn’t make sense, given the size of the production. And remaining in the baseband world allows reliability to be maintained, and the production team does not

have to get caught up in learning a new technology. One of the new technologies in Nitro B is a Calrec Brio audio console. Rokosa noted that it is a smaller audio console and has access to the audio resources in the A unit (and is available to the Calrec Artemis console). “That area in the B unit can now produce a second show because it has identical resources available,” he said. “The

technical capability is there, and that is pretty exciting.” Nitro’s B unit is designed to operate in standalone mode or alongside other Game Creek Video trucks as well. “It has its own audio router, video router, Evertz multiviewer, Kayenne control surface, and the sort of sandbox area that is useful for graphics, replay, and a small engineering area,” said Taubman. Nitro also carries some Marshall POV cameras from Inertia Unlimited that Taubman said are small and disposable, an important consideration when shooting alongside a track with cars hitting speeds of more than 300 mph. Inertia Unlimited provides a single point of control for all those cameras. Another improvement from last year is that Calrec Hydra boxes will be dropped at strategic locations around the NHRA events to provide audio-signal transport to the truck in the compound via fiber. According to Rokosa, Nitro improves NHRA production with new efficiency, enabling the show to come together much more quickly and making troubleshooting easier. “It can also adapt more easily to the differences in our shows, and it can grow with us, as it is also 4K-capable. Everything can shift around.” IP was considered briefly for Nitro, but Taubman said that going IP on a midsize truck is difficult because there is no midsize IP router on the market and there is not enough space for a larger router and the related IP gateways. He expects that issue to be resolved when more native-IP edge devices roll out. “The promise of IP,” he said, “is IP-enabled edge devices, like cameras and a switcher, that don’t require the middleware that is used right now.” In time for baseball season, Game Creek Video rolled out Chesapeake, a Nitro clone (although the B unit is not as technically sophisticated). It was used by MASN in the Baltimore/Washington market for the upcoming baseball season. Yogi, an IP-based truck, hit the road for the YES Network and Fox Sports’ coverage of the World Series. “Yogi is a big deal for us,” said Taubman. “It serves three masters: the YES Network, the away team as it can work dualfeed, and then, on top of that, the World Series. So, when it came to IP, the question was, if any one of those three things go 4K, the whole infrastructure has to be able to do it on a World Series scale. “Yogi is our second IP effort after Encore two years ago,” he continued. “And, like Encore, it is IP for capacity’s sake: we have 12 12-channel EVS units, need to support dual-feed 98

operation, and can do a World Series-level production and operate in 4K. That really pushed baseband routing over the cliff. We can also see the light at the end of the tunnel with the SMPTE 2110 standard that will allow edge devices to natively support IP. I feel like we will be living in a fully IP world pretty rapidly.” Yogi comprises two 53-ft. expando units: an A unit with a recommended work area of 64 x 24 ft. and a B unit with 72 x 19 ft. The two units will bring something new to Yankee Stadium as well: the ability for the YES Network and a visiting Fox regional network to work together, the YES Network calling the A unit home for its productions and the visiting network in the B unit. The A unit features a Grass Valley Kayenne K-Frame production switcher, a Calrec Apollo audio console, a Boland monitor wall, and Evertz multiviewers. There is also a video-

shading area for four operators and support for up to 20 Sony HDC-4300 cameras operating in 4K mode. “We changed the replay area in the A unit a bit,” Taubman explained. “It will have 12 12-channel EVS XT4’s, an upgrade from six-channel EVS units. That gives it a lot of replay horsepower.” Each EVS server will be able to have two operators, each working independently. “We are also using the IHSE KVM system,” he said. “That allows us to put replay-server controls wherever we need them to go. Fiber connectivity will play a major role, enabling the A and B units to be tethered to each other in about 10 minutes. “The B unit is a big sandbox with a big monitor wall for production, a second Grass Valley K-Frame production switcher, and a Calrec Brio 64-channel audio console connected via Calrec Hydra2 to the mothership,” said Taubman. “The promise of Brio with the Hydra2 integration is that all the audio resources and associated I/O with the other desk is available. Hydra2 makes it more dynamic.” The B unit has a small video-shading area and an engineering area that can handle another 12RU of gear. RTS intercoms are in use in both trucks, and, according to Taubman, the use of Omneo and Dante IP-based routing makes the intercom capabilities pretty slick. “We also jettisoned analog audio monitors,” he added, “which allows us to reduce the infrastructure, as all of the analog

patchfields and wires have gone away.” For Mike Webb, VP, broadcast operations, YES Network, the biggest improvement to the YES broadcasts is the addition of the Sony HDC-4300 cameras. Three are licensed for highspeed needs: two recording at 360 fps and one at 480 fps. And, because the cameras are now all the same model, matching color across the entire camera complement will be easier. “We played with the 480-fps 8X camera eight times [during Spring Training],” he pointed out. “It is really cool as it allows the producer and operator to ramp the frame rate up and down so they can slow things down as the ball gets closer to the tip of the glove. We will ship that 8X unit around for all of our games, and the two 6X cameras will be used at our home games.” The Game Creek Video integration team also finished up two additional trucks. Edit 3, a carbon copy of Edit 2, hit the road with Riverhawk for MLB Network’s 4K coverage. And the company’s B2 truck has been revamped to join Chesapeake for MASN pre/postgame coverage. Maverick and Riverhawk recently returned home to be outfitted for 4K productions via expanded Evertz routers and Grass Valley K-Frame production switchers.

HIGH ROCK MOBILE TELEVISION High Rock 1 Hits the Road for Carr-Hughes Productions and More By Karen Hogan Ketchum

A

s a long-time packager and producer of the world’s biggest sports events, Carr-Hughes Productions was no stranger to working with mobile-production vendors. A few years ago, Carr-Hughes decided to become a mobile-production vendor itself, and High Rock Mobile Television was born. Its first production truck, High Rock 1, hit the road for the first time this summer. “We looked at it as an opportunity,” said producer/director Jim Carr. “The kind of money that we were spending every year in the rental market we could put towards our own vehicle that was built for our programs [and] also would be available for others to rent. I think it’s a very complete package for a truck of this size. It’s got all the equipment that a lot of the bigger trucks would have — just in a smaller footprint, which we think will help us in locations like New York City and in same-day set/ shoot shows. We can set this thing up pretty quickly.” High Rock 1 is a 40-ft. dual-expando constructed on a Gerling & Associates Super Stallion Dual-Stage Expansion Class trailer and integrated by Bennett Systems. Both Gerling and Bennett are based in Sunbury, OH; Carr-Hughes Productions/ High Rock Mobile TV is located in Saratoga Springs, NY. The truck features a 4M/E Grass Valley Kayenne K-Frame switcher, 254x456 SD/HD/3G Utah Scientific 400 Series router, two-channel ChyronHego Mosaic CG, three EVS XT3 replay servers (two 12-channel, one four-channel), and a Calrec Artemis Light digital audio console. In addition, the truck carries a variety of terminal gear from Evertz, Tektronix, Image Video, and Cobalt Digital. Wired for up to 12 cameras, High Rock 1 comes equipped with seven Sony HDC-17000L’s, an HDC-4300 super-slowmotion camera, and a range of Canon HD lenses. The truck also offers several microphone options from Sennheiser, Audio-Technica, and Sony. Additional equipment can be rented separately or combined with the High Rock 1 rental. “We configured the truck to work with anywhere from six to 12 cameras pretty easily,” explained Carr. “Then, we integrated 32 frame syncs, which helps us when we do events like horse races, where we take a lot of split feeds in from the race-track coverage. We may have eight to 10 cameras that we’re doing [from the truck], but then we’re adding 15 to 20 cameras from a venue.” With a wide variety of events comes a wide variety of freelancers. High Rock Mobile TV wanted to ensure that the equipment found in High Rock 1 would be familiar to person-

nel accustomed to operating out of a 53-ft. truck. Selecting gear like the Grass Valley switcher, EVS XT3 servers, and Sony cameras will also come in handy if High Rock 1 works a larger event and needs to integrate with the facilities of a larger unit. Currently, High Rock 1 is based in Upstate New York, but the team behind the truck sees the possibility for travel outside the Northeast U.S., depending on what productions make sense for the truck. For now, executives at Carr-Hughes Productions — now considered a sister company to High Rock Mobile TV — are excited to have at their disposal a truck designed for their needs. “A big headache for us when we’d go in and do a series of shows was having a different truck every week: different set of engineers, different layout, different equipment. It really made it difficult sometimes to have consistency,” said Carr. “One thing we’re looking forward to is having consistency with this truck: to be able to know this is how we had the router set up, this is how the monitor wall was set up. I think it’ll make our labor and our setup days go a lot easier. That’s a big thing for us.”

MOBILE TV GROUP 41HDX, 42FLEX Blur the Line Between National, Regional Productions By Jason Dachman

W

ith the size and sophistication of regional-sportsnetwork productions growing exponentially, Mobile TV Group in 2017 rolled out two trucks that meet the needs of both RSNs and nationally broadcast college football. The latest generation of MTVG trucks is headlined by dual-trailer 41HDX and dual-feed, two-trailer 42FLEX, an HDR- and 4K-ready unit that debuted in October on AT&T SportsNet’s Pittsburgh Penguins coverage. “Both 41HDX and 42FLEX demonstrate that the line between regional and national shows has disappeared,” said Director, Business Development, Nick Garvin. “These trucks are capable of doing your everyday regional show, which is quite large already, and then doing an even bigger national show the next day. We believe there is not much difference between what we’re doing at a regional level and what’s happening at a national level, aside from major playoff and championship shows.” 41HDX and 42FLEX, the largest double expandos MTVG has ever built, provide three rows of seating in both the production and replay areas. In addition, both feature plenty of tech firepower, including Grass Valley Kayenne K-Frame switchers, four Grass Valley LDX 86 Universe 6X super-slomo cameras apiece, 12-channel EVS replay systems, and Calrec Artemis Beam audio consoles. “We’re not saying that these trucks could do a Super Bowl or a World Series, but pretty much any other regular-season national baseball, basketball, hockey, or college-football game would be no problem,” said GM/founder Philip Garvin. “Essentially, with the four super-slo-mos, the tremendous amount of space, the four 12-channel EVSs, and now HDR [capability on 42FLEX], these are national-level trucks that can also do regional shows.” Built primarily for Fox Sports college-football, collegebasketball, and MLB productions, 41HDX is essentially a standalone A unit traveling with a B unit used almost exclusively for freight and extra equipment. Besides the seating in production and replay (eight replay-operator positions total), it sports a versatile utility area that allows operators to be positioned at any workstation. “The thinking behind 41HDX was to be able to [produce] a national college-football game out of one truck,” explained Philip Garvin. “We’ve [accomplished] that.” The truck is built around a Grass Valley 5M/E Kayenne K-Frame switcher and 396x712 Evertz 3G video router.

It carries six Grass Valley LDX Premier 720p/1080i triax cameras and four LDX 86 Universe 6X super-slo-mo cameras outfitted with a mix of Canon and Fujinon lenses (as well as a Marshall POV cam). The replay room houses three 12-channel EVS XT3 servers, as well as EVS Epsio FX graphics and C-Cast multiplatform production system. 41HDX also rolls with ChyronHego HyperX3 graphics and a SketchHD telestration system. On the audio side are a 64-fader Calrec Artemis Beam console (256 routable inputs via MADI, 64 analog inputs, and 64 analog outputs) and a 2752x2848 audio router. The RTS ADAM-M Matrix comms system is capable of 64 ports of OMNEO, 64 channels of MADI, and 48 analog ports. “This is an extremely capable truck in one very large unit,” said Philip Garvin, adding, “We were very conscious to [incorporate] weight-saving technologies that have come along recently.” Built on the FLEX model launched in 2015 (with 38FLEX), 42FLEX allows clients to shift among HD mode, SSMO mode, 1080p mode, and 4K mode. However, MTVG’s first truck to offer 1080p HDR capability can produce a 1080 HDR show using almost entirely triax rather than fiber. “The truck is very focused on HDR because the cameras can do 1080p HDR in triax, which is a very big deal in the regional-sports [market],” said Philip Garvin, noting, “When you’re doing same-day set and shoot, fiber is your nemesis because it’s complex and time-consuming. Also, a lot of venues still have only triax and very little or no fiber.” 42Flex rolls with a standard complement of 14 Grass Valley cameras outfitted with Fujinon lenses. Seven Grass Valley LDX 82 Premier cameras can shoot HDR over triax; the only need for fiber for an HDR show would be to accommodate the four LDX 86 Universe 6X super-slo-mo cameras. According to Philip Garvin, FLEX42 is capable of producing a fully HDR show, the only caveat being the need to add HDR monitoring. “All of our trucks will be HDR going forward,” he noted. “We think there will be a lot of interest in 1080p HDR, but we could even do 1080i HDR if needed. And we also plan to do HDR 4K with our 4K trucks.” The new mobile unit represents the next generation of MTVG’s dual-feed regional sports trucks, with the A unit serving the home show and the 42VMU (visitors mobile unit) the away show. Philip Garvin noted, “The visitor show has almost everything [the home show has], including network EVS [access] to the four super-slo-mos, for the dual feed, which is pretty amazing.” Built around a 7M/E Grass Valley Kayenne K-Frame switcher (3M/E assigned to the visitor show), 42FLEX features a 378x802 Evertz 3G/4K video router, 2752x2848 Evertz audio router, and an RTS ADAM-M matrix

comms system (with full integration between the A and VMU units). Robust replay capability is provided by two 12-channel EVS XT3 servers, two 12-channel XT4K servers, and a four channel EVS XS3 server for SpotBox (two channels per show on duals). The A unit boasts up to six replay-operator positions (plus a tech-manager spot), and the visitor show has full access to the EVS network with up to three operator positions in the VMU. The A unit features a 56-fader Calrec Artemis Beam audio mixer and ChyronHego Mosaic XL2 graphics. The VMU has a Studer Vista 1 console and rack-mount Vizrt (for Fox RSN shows) or ChyronHego HyperX3 graphics. MTVG continues to refine various aspects of its truck design: for example, angling monitor walls to provide perfect line of sight for the production team. “We’re very focused on fine-tuning every aspect and getting down to the nitty-gritty details for each truck,” said Nick Garvin. “We’re constantly evolving new ways of doing things.”

LEADER adds HD HDR Monitoring to the LV5333 Portable 3G Waveform Monitor For many years, the LEADER LV5333 waveform monitor has established itself as the de-facto waveform monitor for on-set monitoring of both camera setup and picture quality. It has become the must have tool by DITs (Digital Imaging Technicians) and other video professionals world-wide. Now High Dynamic Range support can be added to the LV5333 with the addition of the LV5333SER02 software option. Able to handle over 20 HD-SDI/SD-SDI signal formats, the LV5333 is designed for deployment on-set, in the studio or in post-production. The 6.5� TFT LCD screen provides high quality images, even in the most demanding of environments and can be used as a camera viewfinder, waveform monitor, vectorscope, histogram display, gamut display and audio monitor. The LV5333 also has two special displays, CINEZONE & CINELITE, that allow production and operational staff to easily monitor camera setup and luminance levels on the set, without the need for a detailed understanding of traditional test and measurement displays. CINELITE is an on-picture exposure measurement tool, that allows the operator to measure, with a cursor, luma and chroma levels in Y%, RGB%. CINEZONE places false colors on the picture display to indicate luminance levels on the picture and help identify "hot spots" and on-set lighting issues. It is perfect for making sure green screens are lit evenly. LV5333SER02 HDR software license option enables the LV5333 to measure HD HDR levels by adding an HDR waveform display and scale. Also included is HDR CINEZONE, which uses false colors to indicate on the picture the areas that contain HDR and the level. LV5333SER02 supports HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma) conforming to ITU-R BT.2100, ARIB STD-B 67, SMPTE ST 2084 and PQ (Perceptual Quantization). In addition, it also supports S-Log 3, C-Log Log-C.

NEP GROUP 4K Beast Yukon Targets the Entertainment Market By Brandon Costa

W

hile sports-video production continues to enjoy its dominance over television production and captures many of the ratings headlines, live entertainment in the form of musicals, concerts, and now esports tournaments is adding new and exciting opportunities for the mobile-production industry. To meet a rise in demand for high-end, 4K-capable mobile support on the entertainment side of the business, NEP Group’s Denali division rolled out a brandnew, 55-ft. expando named Yukon. NEP Denali describes Yukon, its latest mobile unit to hit the road, as “state-of-the-art” and “designed for the specific needs of entertainment production.” Like many new trucks these days, it’s highly flexible and easily customized for the individual client: many of Yukon’s operating positions can be swapped around and/or can serve multiple functions based on the needs of the given show. Yukon, which has an accompanying B unit, is constructed around an Evertz EQX 558x576 router with 576 XLink outputs at its core. At the front bench is a Grass Valley Kayenne K-Frame production switcher with 9M/E, 128 inputs, and 96 outputs. Rounding out the guts of the production end are an Evertz VIP monitor wall, an IHSE KVM system, 212 de-embedding inputs, and 224 embedding outputs. The truck comes standard with a load of acquisition goodies, including 12 Sony HDC-4300 cameras (with SMPTE fiber) and a collection of Fujinon lenses (two 88X8.8, eight 14X4.5, four 23X7.8, and two 16X6.5). On the audio end, Yukon boasts a Studer Vista X console with A-Link and an Evertz EMR audio router. It carries six Shure SM58 microphones and 10 Sennheiser 416P shotgun microphones. An additional entertainment microphone package is available upon request. Bolstering its case as a highly flexible truck, NEP Denali

does not commit Yukon to a specific replay or graphics infrastructure. Both can be provided on request; the truck is wired to accommodate up to 20 VTRs and six EVS servers on the replay end and any two machines for graphics. Yukon’s flexibility, according to NEP Denali, is critical in the entertainment business, where a unit is less likely to work a lengthy package the way a truck may in sports. Many concerts and esports tournaments are massive one-off live-production events, and NEP needs to remain nimble to offer ultra-high-end production on an on-demand basis. The unit is equipped with a 256-port Riedel Intercom system for comms, adds an Evertz 5601 sync generator with auto change, and provides plenty of SMPTE fiber cabling (eight 500-ft., 12 350-ft., 18 200-ft., 20 100-ft. cables) for a standard production. NEP’s Denali division has established itself as the gold standard in entertainment-production support. In fact, its flagship mobile unit, California, has served as the host for the production behind each of the past two Super Bowl halftime shows, including last year’s epic presentation by Lady Gaga at NRG Stadium in Houston. Yukon is prepared to take on many such entertainment assignments in the very near future.

Gearbase

What’s What in Mobile Production Results of SVG’s 12th-annual study of mobile-production equipment

T

he 12th-annual SVG Mobile Sports Production Gearbase Survey provides an ongoing database of production-truck technology for the North American fleet of more than 250 broadcast vehicles. The 2018 Gearbase comprises 258 total mobile units, only two of which are SD-only. With SD officially dead and HD the status quo, 4K- and HDR-capable trucks — as well as units featuring IP-based infrastructure — are on the rise. Of the 258 mobile units covered in the survey, 35 are listed as 4K-capable (up from 20 last year), 43 are HDR-capable (the previous survey did not ask for data on HDR-capability), and 55 are 1080p-capable (up from 30 last year). The 2018 Gearbase Survey drew more participating companies than ever before — 39 in all — and lists nearly a dozen mobile units that debuted over the past 12 months. On the following pages is a listing of the trucks and their specs (based on data collected from participating companies in October 2017). Here is a brief summary of the Gearbase Survey’s key findings in the North American truck market. • With 60 trucks, NEP still has by far the largest fleet in North America, followed by Game Creek Video with 27 and Mobile TV Group with 25 (not including its Visitor Mobile Units). In fourth place is Dome Productions with 19, followed by Lyon Video (11), F&F Productions (10), Live Media Group (nine), and All Mobile Video and TNDV Television (eight each). Turn to page 22 for the Total Trucks by Company graphic. • Of the 251 trucks whose camera complement was identified by brand, 132 use Sony (52%); 80 deploy Grass Valley (32%); 20, Ikegami (8%); 15, Hitachi (6%); and four, Panasonic (2%). • The battle for lens-market share remains a two-horse race. Of the 229 trucks that identified lens brand, 119 trucks carry exclusively Canon lenses (52%), 78 have only Fujinon (34%), and 28 have a mix of Canon and Fujinon lenses (12%). 2% of trucks carry Agenieux lenses. • Among switchers, Grass Valley continues to dominate, with its units found at the center of 204 mobile units (80%). Sony switchers are in 19 trucks (7%), Ross Video switchers in 15 (6%), Blackmagic 2% in eight (3%), and FOR-A in four 2% Design (2%).

a total of 65 trucks (32%) with Grass Valley close behind in 56 (28%). PESA is third with 36 (18%), followed by Imagine Communications with 16 (8%), Utah Scientific with 15 (7%), and Ross Video with eight (2%). • ChyronHego is still the market leader in graphics. Its systems are in 88% of trucks on the road (153 of the 173 that specified a system). Thirty-seven trucks carry Vizrt systems, and 21 deploy Ross Video graphics (although the majority of these trucks also carry a ChyronHego system). • In HD replay devices, EVS is once again the industry standard: 201 HD trucks were identified as relying on some form of EVS system as its primary replay device. Currently, 18 trucks carry Grass Valley K2 Dyno replay systems, although the majority of them also have EVS replay systems. • Calrec Audio remains the number-one audio console on trucks, with 160 consoles in 63% of the North American fleet. Yamaha is second, with consoles in 27 audio rooms (11%), followed by Studer (21 trucks), Harman Soundcraft (14), Avid/Euphonix (12 trucks), Music Group’s Behringer/Midas (5), and DiGiCo and Mackie (four apiece) .

F TRUCKS BY PRODUCTION SWITCHER BRAND -2018 • The video-router sector remains diverse, judging by the 202 3% trucks that identified router brand. Evertz is atop the market in 6%
