Crosscreek Television Productions, a proud partner in Alliance Productions, announces plans for it’s newest HD mobile unit, Voyager 10. Crosscreek is a remote television production company based in Alabaster, Alabama, and currently operates two high-level HD mobile units, Voyager 8 and Voyager 9. Voyager 10 is on schedule to join those units later this year. The trailer is currently in final stages of completion with Fred Gerling, to be followed by complete technical integration from Fred Beck & Associates. Spruce McRee and John Peers of Crosscreek have set a target date of December 1 for the Voyager 10 rollout.
Voyager 10 will be a 53 foot HD expando which will operate autonomously without a
B-unit. Voyager 10 will be similar in style and design to Crosscreek’s existing HD trucks, allowing for easy client crossover. All units are configured with three production benches, including a separate slide-out Technical Manager position. Voyager 10 will feature a Grass Valley Kayenne production switcher, a Chyron Duet Hyper X-3, 4 EVS replay servers including an EVS X-file, and a Pesa multi-rate video router. Also on board, 8 Sony HDC 1500 cameras, with Fujinon 88x lenses and a Calrec Artemis audio mixer with 2 Madi interfaces. The Voyager 10 infrastructure will allow for easy installation of additional cameras and EVS per client request.
In addition to the two HD mobile units currently in operation, Crosscreek offers three digital and one analog mobile units and three “B” units. The Crosscreek list of elite clients includes ESPN, Fox Sports, Speed Channel, TVG and a host of independent producers. Throughout the year, Crosscreek in conjunction with ESPN Regional Television, covers SEC events including the men’s and women’s SEC basketball tournaments. For over ten years, Crosscreek has been an integral part of drag racing telecasts with coverage of the NHRA series, and is currently the exclusive mobile unit provider for the NHRA on ESPN.
