Al Kass: Covering sports in the Gulf Case Study (GV-4102M) File size: 1.0 MB, posted Oct 14 2011 For its latest investment project, Al Kass commissioned two new large outside broadcast trucks to augment its existing fleet with large-scale production capabilities. Although the units will be based in Doha, the expectation is that they will travel throughout the region, and particularly to neighboring countries including the United Arab Emirates.
The two trucks are being built for Al Kass by Grass Valley at its outside broadcast systems center of excellence in Weiterstadt, Germany.
The ESC 2011 was produced and broadcast in high-definition 1080i with 5.1 surround sound and two-channel stereo. A key role in the production of the ESC 2011 were four Grass Valley® LDK 8000 Elite cameras with wireless adapters.
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.
