Dutch mobile recording specialist, Cinevideogroup, has used its Lawo-equipped triple expander OBV to record 3D and HD video productions at three events across Europe. The company sent the largest vehicle in its fleet, the OB14, to record Dutch star Marco Borsato simultaneously in 2D and 3D at the Gelredome in Arnhem. The project was completed in fully completely tapeless environment, running all camera, video and audio signals on fibre optic cables, using 128 channels of multitrack audio on the 56-fader Lawo mc2 66.
The OB14 team followed this up with a visit to the spectacular Castello Scaligero in Villafranca di Verona to record Italian star Ligabue in 3D in front of a crowd of 120,000. From there OB14 was sent to record a rare concert by classic rockers Toto, who were recording a new HD video for DVD and Blu-ray release.
Cinevideogroup now has four OBVs carrying Lawo mc2 66 digital audio consoles, the first of which was installed five years ago. OB14 is its largest vehicle, designed for big music events and sports productions. All onboard routing is handled by a Lawo Nova 73 HD offering 96kHz operation.
