Production Outfitters is experiencing a busy fall season in New Mexico. Recently our crews wrapped behind the scenes production and celebrity interviews for NBC Universal’s feature film “MacGruber, starring Will Forte of Saturday Night Live, using our Sony F900R HDCAM package.

Director of Photography John Britt and Sound Recordist Erik Donald worked long hours and several overnights to capture outstanding scenes and interviews with Producer Lorne Michaels, Will Forte, Val Kilmer, Ryan Phillipe, Kristin Wiig, and Director Jorma Taccone.

Production Outfitters provided crews, equipment, and location management to the Digital Kitchen from Culver City, CA in the production of The Buzz – a new entertainment news channel owned by AT&T for a segment on the television series “Crash,” starring Dennis Hopper.

Production Outfitters recently added a Panasonic AV-HS400N live multi-format HD switcher to their multicam equipment. This switcher is the heart of their HD Multicam Flypack This flypack allows a cost effective HD multicam solution. With a variety of HD and SD video recording decks and 1/3 inch, ½ inch, or 2/3 inch cameras, any budget can be accommodated. With its multi-plex feature, up to eight sources plus preview and program are all displayed through one HD LCD monitor. This eliminates the expense and headache of additional monitors and cabling.

Recently this package went to Finland for the International Karaoke World Championship. The entire package shipped in 5 cases, each weighing under seventy pounds, and provided HD multi-cam coverage as well as live streaming worldwide.

This same flypack was recently configured for use in covering the TFR Series of Champions tennis tournament in Albuquerque, NM for broadcast in India.
