Billerica, Massachusetts ? Broadcast Pix? today announced that Spectrum Productions, a company which offers full AV production and rental services, used its new Granite? 5000 2 M/E Video Control Center? on Nov. 19 to produce the NASCAR 2012 Nationwide / Camping World Truck Series Awards Banquet at the Loews Miami Beach Hotel in Miami Beach, Fla. The ceremony aired on SPEED in late November, and Spectrum was responsible for the the entire ballroom production including staging, scenic, video, and lighting at the venue.
Headquartered in Atlanta, with offices in Miami, Orlando, Charlotte, N.C., and Las Vegas, Nev., Spectrum has been providing AV production services for corporate meetings, conventions, and trade shows, as well as video support for concert tours, for more than 20 years. Preston MacIntyre, president, said the Granite system was purchased in October to help clients create a high-end broadcast look for their stage productions. ?We were looking for a way to enhance production values for certain events, elevate their presentations from the PowerPoint look,? he explained.
Several features made Granite an ideal solution for Spectrum. ?One thing that seems to be a problem in new switchers is a lot of frame delay,? MacIntyre said. ?Delay is a big problem for live events. The Granite has very minimal latency, and that was a factor in selecting it.?
