EVS Equips Freedom, Pulsar's New HD Television Mobile Unit
Pulsar TV has chosen the latest technology for their new HD truck. The Mobile unit will feature one EVS 6-channel XT+ server and two 4-channel XTnano servers.
“We are very pleased to inaugurate the first 3G/3D Ready mobile truck in this country, says Gonzalo Pampin, owner of Pulsar TV. “With Freedom, we chose the best and latest technology to make a State Of The Art mobile truck that will pave the way for future HD and 3D productions in Argentina. Our partnership with EVS and the reliability of their equipment has helped us in this enterprise/massive undertaking.”
