52FLEX is custom-built, with top-of-the-line specs and first-of-its-kind Visitor Mobile Unit

Mobile TV Group (MTVG), the live broadcast technology services company, today announced its newest mobile unit, 52FLEX. This unit, custom-built for Bally Sports, will broadcast primarily Columbus Blue Jackets and Cincinnati Reds games, as well as Cleveland Cavaliers and Cleveland Guardians games for Bally Sports Ohio.

Custom built at MTVG’s Englewood, Colorado headquarters, 52FLEX is housed inside of a 53-foot expanding trailer and seats over 20 members of the on-site broadcast team. 52FLEX is equipped with world-class technology that has been tested and installed at MTVG’s headquarters, including Grass Valley LDX82 Premier cameras and Grass Valley LDX86 universe SSMO cameras, a Grass Valley Kayenne K-Frame XP switcher, an Evertz router, a CALREC Artemis Beam Audio Mixer, and more.
