Trinity Fellowship A Christmas Crisis: How A Multisite Church Replaced — And Enhanced — Its Broadcasts Just In Time For The Holidays With Kayenne K-Frame Case Study

Trinity Fellowship, US www.tfc.org

CHALLENGE: Days before Thanksgiving 2015, a lightning strike forced Trinity Fellowship to replace a key production switcher that failed due to a loss of cooling and extreme overheating.

SOLUTION: Grass Valley collaborated with the church's equipment dealer, organizing a complete proposal with revisions in less than 24 hours. The church then issued a purchase order for a 4.5 M/E Kayenne K-Frame Video Production Center switcher in less than a week, and during the service on Dec. 4, 2015 — only 11 days later — the switcher debuted.

BENEFITS: The Kayenne K-Frame immediately improved E-MEM timeline automation and offered many other workflow and visual production technique enhancements.

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.

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.
