First 3D Live Television Production Truck Ready to Roll

Supershooter 3D, the very first Mobile Television Truck designed specifically for producing live 3D television events, is set to roll. This one-of-a-kind mobile unit, created by NEP Broadcasting and PACE utilizing the state of the art FUSION 3D system, satisfies the growing demand for 3D productions in the Television Industry.

"Like HD years ago, the demand for 3D production is growing industry-wide. Everyone is looking for a way to bring the television audience closer, to make them feel like they are part of a live event. 3D technology can help create a fresh and engaging experience. Our commitment to providing the latest and greatest to our clients made our partnership with PACE, the best in the 3D business, an easy decision." Says NEP Broadcasting CEO Debbie Honkus.

SS 3D sets the bar high for live 3D television -- combining PACE's cutting-edge FUSION 3D technology, designed in a partnership with James Cameron, and NEP Broadcasting's live television mobile unit design and integration expertise. Customizable for every client's individual needs, SS 3D features: a 3D production viewing area, a convergence station, and 3D capable tape, video and engineering rooms. Wired for eight 3D cameras, two 6-channel EVS XT-2 servers, and ten tape machines, with an SSL Aysis Air PLUS! Digital Audio Console, SS 3D is capable of handling any production.

Joseph Signorino, NEP Broadcasting's senior project engineer says, "Up to this point the norm has been to integrate bits of 3D technology into a 2D television truck on site for each show. While not insurmountable, it does end up requiring extra time and effort, making the overall process difficult and disruptive. With SS 3D, we have created something entirely new: A fully-equipped truck built specifically to cover live 3D events, able set up easily in a reasonable time, without sacrificing any of the power or technology that our clients need and expect."

SS 3D kicks off this weekend at the Ohio State versus University of Southern California College Football game for ESPN, and is slated to cover a wide range of events from concerts to sports.
