TNDV Television Improves Production Workflow With TSL Products

When live production company TNDV Television needed a new system to help manage its tally and UMD workflow for various productions (including large-scale multi-stage music festivals and sporting events), it turned to turned to TSL Products and its TallyMan TM1 MK2+ units.

The TSL Products broadcast control systems have now been installed across TNDV’s fleet of mobile television production trucks to handle tally routing to cameras, multiviewers and monitors. TNDV Television also added TSL’s ESP-1R expansion module to the system for contact closures, allowing for seamless integration with virtually any switcher or other mobile units via fiber and IP network.

Andrew Humphries, Director of Engineering at TNDV Television, said that for large music festivals, they need the ability to hand off camera feeds to DJs and touring video crews. The TSL TM1 MK2+ is used to return tally data from guest switchers via IP. This same workflow applies to its sports projects in that it can provide various camera feeds to the in-house production, the sporting league and the broadcasters covering the event.

“The TM1 MK2+ has helped us simplify our workflow and amplify our professionalism beyond what we could have imagined,” Humphries said.
