Hitachi Kokusai Electric America, Ltd., (Woodbury, N.Y.) has delivered two Hitachi DK-H32 HDTV remote observation compact cameras and one Hitachi SK-3020P handheld production HDTV camera to Pete's Big TVs (New Castle, Del.). Pete's is a production company specializing in large-screen display and video production for live staged concerts and events.
The new DK-H32 HDTV cameras purchased last fall, along with two other DK-H32's purchased in fall of 2006, enable Pete's Big TVs to produce a live HD video show that displays on large-screen HDTV monitors for all concerts in the Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band 2008 tour. The remote observation compact cameras are used in conjunction with other HD studio cameras positioned throughout the house whenever Springsteen performs.
The new Hitachi SK-3020P handheld production HDTV camera is currently being used to produce the video show displayed for concertgoers attending R&B star R. Kelly's 2008 U.S. tour.
For Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, Pete's Big TVs provided HD video production services—using the Hitachi DK-H32 HDTV remote box cameras—for both the 2008 tour, as well as Springsteen's 2006/2007 "Seeger Sessions Tour" across Europe.
According to Peter Daniel, president of Pete's Big TVs, the Hitachi DK-H32's were purchased because Bruce Springsteen dislikes camera operators moving about the stage while he and his band are performing. Because the Hitachi DK-H32's are HDTV remote box cameras, they can be remotely controlled to move around the performers and capture much-needed stage shots without detracting from the performance.
