Pulsar TV Launches New Freedom Mobile Truck

Introduction of the Pulsar Freedom in Buenos Aires

Pulsar TV celebrates the launch of their new HD + 3G + 3D Ready Freedom Mobile Truck. Pulsar will be the first company to broadcast live in HD from Argentina.

The new mobile build includes a Ross Vision Octane Multi-Definition Production Switcher, XPression Character Generator and openGear Terminal Equipment. Their first broadcast will be to air the Women’s Hockey World Cup starting in August in Rosario City.

“The Freedom mobile truck has been a two year project - from the first brainstorming session to the actual seven month build. Pulsar TV is very proud to be the first in this country to broadcast in the highest quality HD,” said Gonzalo Pampin, Owner, Pulsar TV. “When we decided on our broadcast equipment, we didn’t only select quality, but searched for companies we can have open communication with during and after the sale. Ross Video provides us that reliability.”

“We are extremely proud to be associated with this project,” said David Ross, CEO, Ross Video. “Pulsar TV has worked hard the last few years to reach this goal, and Ross has been supporting them every step of the way. We look forward to being part of their live events for years to come.”
