Building No. 8 by Keys of Art Films Case Study

Director, co-DP and editor Thanasis Deligiorgis, and co-DP Dimitrios Milonas decided that an editing program as futuristic as EDIUS Pro 8 deserved to be highlighted in a future-based science fiction story.

"I wanted to do something more cinematic to show that EDIUS is not just a news and broadcast NLE, but is just as powerful and creative for film work," said Thanasis. "The main character, a soldier is 'upgraded' by a scientist in a medical lab and transported to another planet, where he eventually finds his destination — a large '8' structure — the goal, so to speak, of the upgrade.

Keys of Art: Bringing the art of the movie trailer to pre-wedding videos Case Study

When you think about wedding videos, the typical thought is the event itself, being captured for posterity. But Keys of Art in Thessaloniki, Greece came up with another idea — the pre-wedding video. A short film that serves as a trailer for the individual lives that are about to become one. Bringing two lives together in a short film, in a short span of time, can be daunting.

Key of Art's Deligiorgis Athanasios (cinematographer and editor) and Dimitrios Milonas (photographer) needed an editing system that would be fast and versatile, while providing for creative expression.

TourGigs: Recreating the Live Experience with EDIUS Case Study

If you've ever been to a great live concert of your favorite band and wished you could have a video of the show to relive the experience, Jake Saxbe and Ty Roberts have the answer. The two seasoned rockers (along with a third partner, Fletcher Lee) have founded Austin, Texas-based TourGigs which produces a multi-camera recording of live concerts and makes high-quality Blu-ray Discs, DVDs and downloads of each show they shoot available for sale online within days of the show.

TourGigs has produced more than fifty shows around the globe in places like Colorado, California, England, Jamaica, the Bahamas, New York, Boston, Chicago and Texas using up to 14 cameras ranging from the Panasonic Lumix GH-3, to the Blackmagic Design Cinema 4K and Canon C-300, to the Sony F55 and F3 (all shooting at 1080p24). Footage captured is used to produce a line-cut live stream with a customized switcher built around Blackmagic Design hardware, a 24-channel PreSonus live mixing console and a streamlined workflow. The line-cut from the live stream is imported into EDIUS with the camera ISO feeds and assembled into a program using the line-cut as a guide. Sometimes there are minimal changes other times there are more.

The Path to IP: The Right Approach for your IP Migration White Paper

Internet Protocol technology, IP for short, is commanding attention across the broadcast television ecosystem. Understanding exactly how and when IP technology will impact a given business model depends on your individual situation, but developing an understanding of IP technology and how it fits different workflows is critical. Grass Valley, a Belden Brand, thanks to its access to broadcasters worldwide and some of the most advanced innovators in our business, is well-positioned to provide detailed insights. How is IP technology changing broadcast television? How quickly will the technology progress? How will IP capabilities enhance various operational models?

Broadcasters are attempting to answer these questions now — and coming up with other questions along the way. What follows is a look at some of the answers Grass Valley's experts have developed.

New Bay Media IP Migration White Paper

For the past three decades, the television industry has been dominated by two major technology transitions. The first, from analog to digital video signals, began in the 1980's and is now essentially complete — the methods used to deliver video to consumers have become almost exclusively digital, and professional production systems being sold today are based on digital technology. The second, from SD to HD, began about a decade later and has penetrated the television market to the extent that virtually all new professional equipment and services are designed to support HD resolution.

With both of these transitions nearly concluded, the television industry is now faced with two more technology upheavals: migrating from SDI to IP-based studio infrastructure, and upgrading video signals from HD to 4K/Ultra HD. Both of these technologies are poised to once again revolutionize the production and delivery of television content. But, just like the earlier technology migrations, the transitions to IP and 4K/UHD will take time, and each video facility will no doubt proceed at its own pace.

The Road to UHDTV White Paper

Television's next evolution, while its end result might be deemed revolutionary by some, is Ultra High Definition TV (UHDTV), the next improvement in HD. While the major standards surrounding the technology have been identified and many have been worked out, the name, oddly enough, is still in flux. For production, we refer to it as 4K; CE manufacturers call it Ultra High Definition (UHD); the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE) calls it UHDTV1 or 2160p (UHDTV2 describes 8k). For purposes of this paper, it will be labeled UHDTV or UHDTV 4K.

Grass Valley Unveils the Gateway to the Future of IP White Paper

Broadcasters around the world are increasingly recognizing the advantages of the Internet Protocol (IP) and how it can improve their overall video distribution infrastructure — whether that be in-house, between buildings and even between remotely located cities. IP systems send and receive audio and video files as packets that are strung together and sent over less costly cabling that is much easier to install and maintain than legacy coax cable.

How 4K UHDTV, 3G/1080p and 1080i Will Shape the Future of Sports Television Production White Paper

Presented in depth in this paper is the significant growth in preference toward the 3G/1080p and 4K UHDTV formats. This is telling, considering that 3G/1080p is a format that currently has fairly limited applications in broadcast while 4K UHDTV is a format with no current transmission mechanism to bring content into homes.
