TNDV’s flagship HD expanding side mobile unit knocked out over 52 shows within its first year on the road.  Aspiration is a great choice for just about any show requiring up to 12 cameras.  Flexibility is the key when it comes to the setup and configuration of Aspiration.  Each production gets a custom monitor wall, unique intercom configuration and a router layout that suits that particular event.  With floating walls, even the layout of the truck can be modified to accommodate the crew with different types of productions.

Coast to Coast…and Back!
This is not a regional truck.  Aspiration has worked in both Portland and Orlando in the same week.  From LA to NY and back again, this truck has provided 5 camera productions in Phoenix and 23 camera events in Atlanta.  The very flexible nature of this robust platform makes it a perfect fit for sports, entertainment, and corporate events.

Sound for Sports + Entertainment
When designing a sound booth for both sports and entertainment work, specific factors for each must be taken into consideration.  Embedding and de-embedding options, as well as a large multi-tracking package, are key elements in the overall design.  96 inputs, MADI routing, and a remote stage box with redundant single mode fiber are just the beginning

Make Aspiration the home for your next project.
