TNDV Mobile Production Fleet Grows with Elevation

-

LR-Elevation InteriorNashville-based mobile production specialist TNDV has added a sixth truck to its fleet, allowing the company to meet a growing demand for live production services around the country.

Dubbed Elevation, the energy-efficient 40-foot truck offers a similar video and audio infrastructure to TNDV’s other medium-sized, multi-format mobile production trucks, designed to accommodate live and recorded shoots of any size.

Elevation includes an on-board 25kW generator to power air conditioners and the entire Elevation production infrastructure. This makes it an ideal choice for isolated remote shoots by eliminating the costs and headaches of finding power in more secluded locations.

“Elevation becomes self-powered with the flip of an onboard switch, eliminating the costs of expensive generator rentals,” said Nic Dugger, TNDV owner and president. “TNDV specializes in challenging shoots in unusual locations, from private outdoor concerts to high-intensity athletic events in temporary venues. This helps us reduce costs for our clients, and is especially helpful for tight production budgets.”

The medium-sized footprint makes it more manageable for clients working within limited spaces, including arenas and temporary outdoor venues. At 40 feet long, Elevation is the same size as TNDV’s flagship Aspiration truck. Like Aspiration, Elevation includes a Ross Vision 3 switcher, an Imagine Communications Platinum integrated router, and Aja Ki-Pro recorders on the video side, along with multiple Hitachi SK-HD1000 cameras for multi-standard, multi-format field production. The audio infrastructure is also similar, with a redundant ProTools system, JoeCo MADI recorders and an 80-port RTS ADAM intercom system – but adds a Soundcraft VI-3000 audio console for expanded functionality.

“The VI-3000 moves us into the 96-input world from the 64-input world of our other video-centric trucks, and adds an integrated I/O infrastructure located physically on the desk itself,” said Dugger. “This not only increases our channel count for larger audio productions, but simplifies our setup and configuration process for signal processing and source equipment across the audio infrastructure.”

Elevation has been used for several productions since taking to the highways in early September, including the 2014 Re/Max Long Drive Challenge golf tournament in Nevada, and the Celebrate Freedom Atlanta concert. Elevation has also visited the Governor’s Mansion in Kentucky to produce a free private concert.
