  • pdf Talkback Thames: Arresting Performance from HD Cameras Case Study (CAM-4058M-2) File size: 698.0 KB, posted Jan 27 2011
    The Bill is a long-running and very popular police procedural drama produced by Talkback Thames for the UK's ITV network. Early in 2009 the decision was made to change the requirement to a weekly, one hour high-definition drama for a 9:00 pm/21.00 timeslot. That called for Talkback Thames to re-equip its production capabilities to upgrade to HD, and as part of that they looked at new cameras.

    One of the characteristics of the way The Bill worked in SD was that Talkback Thames used system cameras recording to separate devices, rather than the camcorders that might typically be used for drama. Having looked carefully at all the options available as they moved to HD, Talkback Thames decided to maintain the same approach, and placed an order for five Grass Valley® LDK 8000 Elite cameras, which record onto the Panasonic P2 format.

  • pdf Mansion Mobile Television: Keeping Business in Focus with Grass Valley HD Cameras Case Study (CAM-4079M) File size: 765.8 KB, posted Jun 20 2012
    Any mobile production services company will tell you that the quality of the images they produce on-site for their clients is their virtual calling card for recurring business. When compared to the competition—which is becoming more fierce all the time—you are only as good as your last project and how it looks on the screen. That's why the team at Mansion Mobile Television, a production company located in Branson, Missouri, was so careful when picking the cameras they would use for the literally hundreds of live sports and entertainment events they complete each year across the entire Midwest US and other regions.

    Mansion Mobile chose Grass Valley® LDK 8000 Elite WorldCam cameras and Canon HD lenses for their arsenal for three simple—but very practical—reasons: the image quality the cameras produce, their ability to natively shoot in different HD formats, and their durability. Mansion Mobile could be shooting a 720p project for Fox Sports one day, and a 1080i project for CBS Sports the next. The LDK 8000 Elite WorldCam gives the company the confidence of knowing that their investment is sound and secure.

  • pdf Lyon Video: Putting Flexibility First Case Study (GVB-1-0146A-EN-CS) File size: 930.2 KB, posted Sep 15 2014
    For its latest, state-of-the-art mobile production trucks, named LYON-11 and LYON-12, Columbus, Ohio-based Lyon Video wanted to make sure that HD format flexibility was front and center. That's important because it works with a variety of clients that all have different needs and requirements. They could be producing a 1080i shoot for NBC Sports one day and a 720p production for ABC/ESPN the next, so their equipment must support both.

    To further support its strategy of flexibility, Lyon Video wanted to be able to work in whatever venue their clients needed them at, regardless of whether it was pre-wired with triax of fiber. To that end, Lyon Video began testing the Grass Valley® 3G Transmission system in 2011 for ESPN and the University of Texas' Longhorn Network located in Austin.
  • pdf Mediatec Broadcast Sweden Grass Valley cameras and switchers cover the event for SVT and the world Case Study (GVB-1-0148A-EN-CS) File size: 1.0 MB, posted Sep 15 2014

    Using a Grass Valley Kayenne Video Production Center switcher, outside broadcast provider Mediatec Broadcast Sweden helped national broadcaster SVT provide live coverage of the first royal wedding in the country in more than 30 years
    Wedding days are always special, but if you are the heir to a throne, you can expect even more attention. In June of 2010, Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden married Daniel Westling. It was the first royal wedding in Sweden for more than 30 years, and interest was high, at home and abroad. For the wedding day itself, three of Mediatec's largest, double-expanding OB vans were parked outside the Royal Palace. At the heart of each was a Grass Valley® Kayenne® Video Production Center switcher, bringing all the feeds together and giving the directors the creative freedom to add multiple layers of graphics and effects, as required. Apart from some remote cameras in tight spaces in the church, all the pictures came from Grass Valley LDK 8000 Elite cameras.
