Glenn-Armistead Mobile TV Units Speed Production of Color TV Tapes

Facilitate Shooting at Edwards AFB for NBC Color Tape Production of the
"Ernie Ford Show"

The Glenn-Armistead trailers were parked at Edwards Air Force Base and NBC finished shooting of the "Ernie Ford Show" on schedule at 1:30 Thursday afternoon. The finished tapes, complete with special effects, were rushed some 150 miles to Burbank color studios. Here they were aired at 6 p.m., same day, for East Coast viewing.

Live Editing

Everything went off without a hitch. There was even 40 minutes to spare, in getting the tape to the studio. But only with a tape production system such as this could you live so dangerously! The RCA-designed system made it possible to "edit live," while shooting the sequences, and end up with a finished tape - complete with special effects - ready for broadcasting.

Time-Saving Device

One of the time-saving modifications incorporated into the RCA color TV cameras is the result of a suggestion by Dr. Kozanowski, RCA expert in electron optics. This enables the output from the RCA special effects switcher to be fed back to the camera viewfinder. This greatly improves the accuracy and speed with which matte, chroma key, and other special effects can be accomplished.

Color and Monochrome System - 25kw generator needed

The mobile system is equipped to make monochrome or color TV tapes. The tractor mounts a 25 kw generator to supply sufficient power for both the camera and the tape trailers. Film and slide inserts can be accommodated, since a complete film system is also included. Switching and special effects equipment enable Glenn-Armistead to accomplish the most intricate wipes, fades, and inserts for the appropriate final touches, so that a finished tape can be produced by the mobile system.
