FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


GENELEC 8030A AND 8050A MONITORING SYSTEMS SELECTED FOR GAME CREEK’S NEW “LEGENDS” MOBILE PRODUCTION UNIT

— New Game Creek Video-designed mobile video/audio truck is HD all the way, from all flat-panel video screens to Genelec Active Monitors —

NATICK, MA, Septermber 22, 2009Game Creek Video, one of the world’s leading providers of remote production vehicles, debuted one of its newest trucks, Legends, in August. Legends is a 53-foot expando unit, home to the cutting edge in high-definition technology, including two sets of Genelec Active Monitors. Five Genelec 8030A Bi-Amplified Monitoring Systems constitute the truck’s surround audio array, while two Genelec 8050A Bi-Amplified Monitoring Systems are used as a separate stereo pair. In a broadcast sports industry that has been rapidly moving into the high-definition realm, these Genelec monitors assure that Legends’ main client, MSG (formerly the Madison Square Garden Network), will be able to offer the absolute best multichannel and stereo audio for its sports telecasts.

As it made its way from Game Creek’s Hudson, New Hampshire headquarters to its primary location at New York’s Madison Square Garden, where it will be used to do production for Knicks and Rangers home game telecasts, Legends made stops along the way, some of which were for a New England Revolution Major League Soccer match in Foxboro, Massachusetts, and a pre-season game between the New England Patriots and the Philadelphia Eagles in Philadelphia, as well as a mixed martial arts event, also in Philadelphia. Legends’ equipment arsenal features the latest in HD technology, including Sony HDC-1500R HD cameras, a Grass Valley Kalypso HD, a PESA Cheetah 3GB/s-capable router and a Calrec Alpha audio console with Bluefin, as well as Chyron HyperX HD graphics systems. Legends is also the first production truck Game Creek has ever built that fully implements the use of LCD monitors.

The Genelec Active Monitors more than hold their own in this class of truck. “We’ve used Genelecs in virtually all of our trucks, because they’re that good,” comments Paul Bonar, Vice President of Engineering for Game Creek Video. Bonar cites Genelec’s integrated tuning and equalization features as making them the best solution for the geometries inherent in mobile broadcast production units. “They really let you optimize each monitor for the space that it’s used in,” he says. “Genelec has forged their way to being the industry standard, and when you’re dealing with multiple trucks and different audio engineers, it’s nice to have the consistency that everyone is happy to use.”

About the Genelec 8030A and 8050A Bi-Amplified Monitoring Systems
The very compact 8030A is a powerful bi-amplified nearfield monitor system ideal for project and home studios, workstations, installations, and surround sound monitoring. The MDE™ (Minimum Diffraction Enclosure™) enclosure has rounded edges and a gently curved front and sides to achieve a very smooth frequency response and superb imaging qualities with minimized cabinet edge diffraction.

Capable of producing peak SPL of over 120dB per pair, and with a low frequency response extending down to 35Hz, the 8050A is a powerful wideband bi-amplified monitoring system. It is an excellent tool for large recording studios, broadcast and surround installations, mastering suites and TV and post-production houses.

 Genelec, the pioneer in Active Monitoring technology, is celebrating over 30 years of designing and manufacturing active loudspeakers for true and accurate sound reproduction. Genelec is credited with promoting the concept of active transducer technology, which many manufacturers are just now incorporating into their products. Since its inception in 1978, Genelec has concentrated its efforts and resources into creating active monitors with unparalleled sonic integrity. The result is an active speaker system that has earned global acclaim for its accurate imaging, extremely high acoustic output from small enclosures, true high-fidelity with low distortion, and deep, rich bass.
