Takenaka: The T2 iDDR Takes Center Stage At Live Events Where High-Definition Video Plays A Starring Role Case Study

Takenaka offers a unique brand of event staging—called LiveTechnical—which uses state-of-the-art technology to create mind-blowing visual extravaganzas. The Star Festival 2009, an event co-produced by Takenaka in Osaka, was one of their most spectacular events of the year, perfectly demonstrating their technical and creative prowess in this field. When planning this prestigious event, the LiveTechnical team wanted an exciting stage show enriched by more high-definition imagery than they'd ever used before. They wanted to use video in new and exciting ways.

In addition to providing crystal-clear HD video and rock-solid performance, the solution also had to be easy to use and compatible with the other equipment they were using. Grass Valley T2 fitted the bill perfectly. One of the key features of the T2 iDDR is its intuitive user interface. This meant that VJs at the event had live control over two independent HD playback channels. Compatibility with switchers, professional projectors, and other staging equipment is also no problem, thanks to HD-SDI connectivity.

Morgan Martini: Aspiring Director Takes EDIUS to the Limit Case Study

While taking a class on the Italian Renaissance Morgan Martini got the inspiration for a film, based on the true story of Carlo Gesualdo—the Prince of Venosa who wrote songs of redemption and salvation. When she proposed the initial idea to her professors, some recommended that she might want to try something "a little less complicated," but not one to shy away from a challenge, Martini found herself on a mission to tell the story and was eager to see it through.

Once the idea was solidified in her mind getting it on the screen took patience, hard work, and the right technology to bring it to fruition. For Martini, that meant editing on a system she knew well: the Grass Valley® EDIUS® multiformat nonlinear editing system
