News: Ross Mobile Productions Introduces Its Compact Production Vehicle at NAB 2014
Remote-Production Vehicles Will Cost-Effectively Deliver the Highest Quality Video and Audio Content
(Las Vegas, Nevada--April 7, 2014) Ross Mobile Productions (RMP) will introduce the OT1 compact production vehicle at this year’s NAB tradeshow. Designed around a tightly integrated Carbonite Production Switcher and XPression Graphics core, the RMP vehicles will deliver fiber and Triax camera capabilities, an advanced communication system and a dual-user eight-channel replay system. This incredible production power enables these Mercedes Sprinter-size vehicles to deliver network-quality production and meet consumer demand for coverage of more sporting and other live events.
“We currently have four trucks doing productions in more than 20 States, and, to date in 2014, have aired on four major US cable networks and in more than 100 countries,” says Mitch Rubenstein, President of Ross Mobile Productions. “Our goal is to continue building our fleet of these vehicles, become a national mobile production company and offer full-service production packages and rental services. The transition from Mobile Content Providers (MCP) to RMP has given us the technical and financial resources to grow successfully in what is a huge market that demands high-quality, network-level productions at affordable prices.”
As well as providing crew and equipment, RMP also undertakes the responsibilities of the producer and provides a full-service solution known as “packaging”. RMP’s services also include customizing, and creating score bugs and graphics packages.
RMP will fund freelance training initiatives to enable this next-generation of Ross Video’s workflow tools to become widely and easily accessible. In keeping with its stated spirit of friendly competition, Ross Video will make many of the integrated solutions it refines for RMP available to other mobile operators and packagers at special package pricing and with support arrangements.
