Taking Control of Replay White Paper

Live event production requires a sophisticated replay system that can fully leverage today's file-based infrastructures to deliver more than just "record and play." Replay systems should take full advantage of IT-centric open systems, being able to run on stand-alone servers or complex SAN systems with advanced metadata capabilities, while also being easy to use by operators.

AnySpeed K2 Dyno White Paper

Replay is quickly becoming the most important tool in a live sporting event. Producers require every possible advantage to tell the best stories and keep viewers engaged. Historically, the industry has faced many challenges in embracing high frame-rate camera systems until Grass Valley, a Belden Brand, introduced the LDX XtremeSpeed (XS) 6X super slowmotion camera and its counterpart, the K2 Dyno Replay System with the K2 Dyno S Replay Controller.

K2 Dyno's AnySpeed takes high-speed recording and playout to the next level with control previously unavailable in any system, enabling the full use of the dynamic range of playback speeds. The AnySpeed algorithm is now included in all 6x SSM K2 Dyno S software releases.

Truck Challenge White Paper

The purpose of this study was to measure the technological challenges of mobile TV production. Why measure problems? The reason is simple. If we can better understand the problems that most frequently occur during a mobile production, we will be better able to anticipate those challenges and counter them. Or, as the father of modern management, Peter Drucker, once said, "That which gets measured, improves."

The study targeted high-end sports production professionals involved in mobile production. Our goal was to aggregate the experience of hundreds of people who work in, or manage, mobile productions, and arrive at a universal truth about which operational areas are most challenging. We interviewed industry experts from mobile production companies both large and small, and surveyed professionals at broadcast and cable networks, as well as mobile production companies.
