National Mobile Television (NMT) has entered into a joint-venture agreement with Location Solutions by Keslow Television that gives NMT exclusive access to and management responsibility for the company’s twin 53-foot edit and transmission mobile units, LS-1 and LS-2.

"This partnership allows us to offer an extremely wide range of services now that we were not able to offer in-house previously," said Jerry Gepner, president of NMT. "We did not own any dedicated editing systems or transmission facilities. This is the latest step in our continuing efforts to be a full-service provider for our customers.

"For our customers," Gepner continues, "we can now maintain a much greater degree of control over an entire production process, managing it much more effectively from an engineering and cost perspective."

"NMT benefits from being able to leverage these units, which represent new areas of technology and business for them," said Jim Palmer, VP and general manager for Keslow Television. "And we’re able to tap into NMT’s wide range of clientele. Just through the sheer volume of work they do, the capacity and utilization of our trucks goes up 10-fold."

Palmer describes LS-1 and LS-2 as "nontraditional" mobile units because they are multistandard, multiformat edit facilities that can serve as complete broadcast centers. "Our clients will now be able to look to the NMT-Location Solutions relationship as a ‘one-stop solution’ to manage large events," Palmer said, "as opposed to, say, engaging NMT for just the production end and a company like ours to provide the added facilities of a broadcast center. They can also streamline their remote production needs. Previously, a large event might have required three or four mobile units, all handling different functions. Now, in some cases, we can bring in just two mobile units, but actually be giving clients more services."

The Location Solutions brand will remain as a separate entity, even as it joins the NMT family. For more on these trucks, visit NMT on the Web at www.nmtv.com.
