Matthews and rsquo; New 40x40 Inch Flags and Floppies Add Portability

 

Matthews introduces a full 40”x40” line of Flags and Floppies. Offering the multitude of benefits for which Matthews is known, this practical size answers the need for gear that’s portable enough to travel in a hatchback car like a Prius and compact enough to work in nooks and crannies of a tight location like a bathroom corner. When it comes to cargo, the 40”x40” dimension easily fits standard shipping limits.

As Matthews’ resident Grip Martin Torner explains: “With the popularity of our 40”x40” Flag, we have added more flavors to this wonderfully dynamic dimension, including Full Silk, Floppy and the new Matthbounce Floppy. Like the 48x48”, the 40x40 is still a good size flag when it comes to usability, but less bulky.”

Like the larger versions, the new frames are built with the same rugged 3/8” stainless steel tubing that’s securely welded for long life. The Flags, Floppies and Silks are meticulously sewn in Matthew’s Southern California headquarters.

Becoming California Recorded with DPA Microphones

DPA Microphones played a prominent role in the making of Becoming California, a two-hour documentary sponsored by The California Environmental Legacy Project that explores the history and future of the states national parks. Narrated by award-winning actress Jane Fonda, and set to air on PBS this fall, the film features 15-minute segments of beautiful videography from each park. With its ability to capture everything from the birds in the sky to the elephant seals in the ocean, the DPA d:mension¢ 5100 Mobile Surround Microphone proved to be the perfect microphone solution for these scenes.

KVIE Moves up to Solid State Logic C10 HD Compact Broadcast Console

KVIE, the PBS member station serving nearly four million viewers in the Sacramento/Modesto/Stockton area of California, has upgraded its Audio Control Room A with a Solid State Logic C10 HD Compact Broadcast Console. Replacing an aging analogue desk, the C10 HD was selected to fulfill a range of requirements that are typical of a thriving mid-scale broadcaster upgrading to HD production: compact size, affordability, simplicity of installation, reliability, longevity, and crucially, operation by a wide range of non specialist staff.

The Society of Camera Operators (SOC) volunteered to document the journey of the Space Shuttle Endeavour to its final home at the California Science Center as part of a project being managed by Terbine Entertainment, LLC and many other vendors and volunteers.
