UniSat Best of 2005

National Mobile Television called upon UniSat to provide complete digital production/transmission services to E! Entertainment for their live movie premieres of Oceanís Eleven and Vanilla Sky.  Space limitations at both venues required a mobile unit that could provide full program origination from the two remote sites for the hour long production.  UniSatís digital TES 2 fit the bill, providing big truck performance in a medium sized footprint complete with KU satellite uplink.
The star studded events brought out some of Hollywoodís best, including George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Julia Roberts, Matt Damon, Tom Cruise, Cameron Diaz and Penelope Cruz.
Equipment compliment included: 5 Ikegami triax cameras, 3 wide angle lens (4.8), 1 Jib camera, handheld camera mounted teleprompter, 2 channel serial digital Chyron, 4 channel DVE, 9 VTR's, DVD player/recorder, E! logo "bug" integration and dual path D1 digital KU satellite transmission.
