Jones Mobile Television (JMTV) Completes $3 Million USD Conversion of 51' Digital Expanding Production Trailer to High Definition
Jones Mobile Television (JMTV) is a full-service location video production company located in Arkansas, USA, which serves a wide range of national sports, corporate, and entertainment clients. Recently they completed a $3 million USD conversion of their 51' (15.5 meter) digital expanding production trailer to high definition (HD). All standard definition equipment, including monitoring, was removed from the mobile unit and replaced with state-of-the-art HD gear.
Before the upgrade, more than 150 CRT monitors were on board. All were replaced with LED monitors. 18 Matrox MicroQuad multiviewers now feed 80% of these new LED monitors in areas such as audio, video shading, the server/tape room, and half of production.
“We chose the Matrox MicroQuads for their quality, ease of use, and very attractive price,” explains Bob Derryberry, President and Co-owner of Jones Mobile Television. “There are a lot of quad multiviewers on the market but since we had experience with other Matrox products in the past, we knew that we could rely on the MicroQuads for our new application.”
