Genesis Featured on SportsVideoGroup.org

By March 9, 2012Uncategorized

D2 Productions’ General Partner, Dave Walzer, was recently interviewed for a write up on SportsVideoGroup.org to discuss our new mobile HD production unit, Genesis.

“We feel there is this middle market that is underserved. They can certainly web stream but if they are looking to do something that is suitable for broadcast, I think this truck will allow them to do that at a price point that has never really been possible for them before. We are enabling the market for smaller schools to enter the broadcast world…

There’s this movement to get every sporting event played online and each game doesn’t have to be a huge $40,000 production, but they do want it to look professional with replay and graphics. I think the equipment that we are putting into the truck enables that to happen for the first time…

A lot of the stuff in the truck is we are taking stock items and we’re either customizing them or augmenting them to optimize them for broadcast.  So with EX-3s we’re taking the stock camera but taking off the stock lens and putting on true sports lenses and longer lenses. We are customizing rear controls, view finders, the whole thing in order to make them user friendly for the sports world…

We’ve been doing sports television for twenty years, so we know what it takes and what a professional sports crew is accustomed to so we know to surround the infrastructure with the environment we know a pro crew is comfortable in.”
