Dome Productions
UHD2 Vista Mobile

Dome Productions tested the UHD market in 2016 by converting an existing HD broadcast trailer along with its 50ft support trailer into a hybrid HD/UHD production unit.  The clients quickly jumped on board with Rogers and Bell both committing heavily to live UHD sports broadcasts.  The Blue Jays alone started broadcasting each home game in 4K UHD in 2016, with Dome Productions providing the content.  They quickly released their first single UHD trailer later that year, Pioneer UHD1.  Vista is Dome’s second UHD trailer based on the Pioneer design that Unity Systems Integration developed in partnership with Dome Productions.

Here are some highlights of the Vista Mobile (UHD2):

UnitySI was contracted to provide detailed documentation, installation and test and commissioning services.
