"ESPN has worked with NEP for three decades on major remote events across the United States, which now includes the exciting development of a 3D production truck that will be used during ESPN3D's inaugural year," says Vice President, Event Operations for ESPN, Chris Calcinari.

SS31 comes fully-equipped with the latest technology, including: a variety of 3D rig options, EVS XT2 servers, support for ten tape machines, a Sony MVS-8000 A switcher, and a Calrec Q2 audio console.
