Mobile recording facility Red TX and OB production company One Box Television have pooled resources for portable HD multicamera shoots.
The union follows the refurbishment of Red TX’s RED II mobile recording unit, which can cater for 3D and 7.1 surround sound productions, and now incorporates an additional production and video gallery room.
One Box Television director Richard Stevenson said: “The complexity of multitrack sound means that an audio truck will frequently be parked alongside a traditional OB truck on a concert.
“The ‘sound end’ of the OB truck, which the client is effectively paying for, is rendered redundant. By installing the mobile flyaway units into RED II, we can combine facilities and reduce costs.”
The smallest unit is just five cameras, but up to 16 can be installed should the project demand it.
