Crosscreek Television Productions Extends Long-Term Partnership With Bittree

Date: 22/05/2013

Bittree today announced that Crosscreek Television Productions is continuing to upgrade its fleet of mobile production vehicles with Bittree's state-of-the-art programmable audio patching systems. Crosscreek's newest project with Bittree is Voyager 11, an all-HD, 53-foot expando trailer that offers the largest production area of any truck in the company's fleet.

 
"Our partnership with Bittree goes back to the 1990s, and every truck in our fleet depends on Bittree patching systems. Since live sports production is our primary focus, there's no room for error and equipment changes often have to be made on the fly. The Bittree patchbays are highly reliable and we have complete confidence that they will always perform as specified," said Butch Mueller, director of engineering, Crosscreek. "Also, Bittree's unique programmable patching means we can quickly change the normalling with a single jumper, a highly valuable capability as we adapt our trucks for different types of productions over time."
 
The latest addition to the Crosscreek lineup, Voyager 11, is a complete rebuild of one of the company's original SD trucks to equip it for full HD production. Voyager 11 features a Grass Valley(TM) Kalypso(TM) switcher, eight Sony HDC cameras, a Calrec Artemis Light audio console and PESA Jaguar routers. The audio production chain is tied together with 24 Bittree high-density TT Bantam patchbays with an E90 rear interface. 
 
"One of our main objectives with Voyager 11 was to build an economical truck in the most cost-effective manner possible. Bittree helped us in this regard by giving us very competitive pricing," added Mueller. "Also, since space is always at a premium in a mobile production unit, Bittree has been able to provide a shallow chassis depth that allows us to maximize available space without sacrificing performance." 
 
Complete information about Bittree's full range of patchbays is available online at www.bittree.com.

DPA Captures Sound for Netflix Original Film Posted: 21/10/2021
DPA Captures Sound for Netflix Original Film: Oxyg and egrave;ne

When it came time to record the Netflix original French-language film, Oxygène (Oxygen in English), the audio team had quite the challenge in front of them. The premise of the scientific horror film focuses on a scientist, played by French Actress Melanie Laurent, who has lost her memory, awakens, trapped in a medical pod and must find her way out before the oxygen levels diminish. Given the setting, the pod is used for 90 percent of the film and, with its tight quarters, Production Sound Mixer Ken Yasumoto and Boom Operator Josselin Panchout knew they needed a reliable and unobtrusive microphone solution, which they found in DPA Microphones.
