For its latest, state-of-the-art mobile production trucks, named LYON-11 and LYON-12, Columbus, Ohio-based Lyon Video wanted to make sure that HD format flexibility was front and center. That's important because it works with a variety of clients that all have different needs and requirements. They could be producing a 1080i shoot for NBC Sports one day and a 720p production for ABC/ESPN the next, so their equipment must support both.
To further support its strategy of flexibility, Lyon Video wanted to be able to work in whatever venue their clients needed them at, regardless of whether it was pre-wired with triax of fiber. To that end, Lyon Video began testing the Grass Valley® 3G Transmission system in 2011 for ESPN and the University of Texas' Longhorn Network located in Austin.

Wedding days are always special, but if you are the heir to a throne, you can expect even more attention. In June of 2010, Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden married Daniel Westling. It was the first royal wedding in Sweden for more than 30 years, and interest was high, at home and abroad.
For the wedding day itself, three of Mediatec's largest, double-expanding OB vans were parked outside the Royal Palace. At the heart of each was a Grass Valley® Kayenne® Video Production Center switcher, bringing all the feeds together and giving the directors the creative freedom to add multiple layers of graphics and effects, as required. Apart from some remote cameras in tight spaces in the church, all the pictures came from Grass Valley LDK 8000 Elite cameras.
