Lightworks Editing


It is said that “Variety is the Spice of Life” and the Lightworks Editing systems have been very spicey recently.
The new season of the English Football Premiere League will once again see Perform Media Services Ltd. bringing their Lightworks “Softworks” editing systems into action.
Perform have the contract to provide in match “near live” and delayed highlights of the English Premier League football for 3 seasons, for use by over 50 global Internet and mobile licensees. The “near live” fast turnaround requires really quick editing of the material, and this is where the Lightworks Softworks systems come into play. From Match feeds, Perform needs to be able to quickly create a number of differently encoded clips of the same event for broadcasting to a range of devices/applications.
Geevs Servers are used for the multichannel ingest and virtual highlight sub-clips are created which can be loaded by the Softworks Editors for Voice Over and further editing.
As a complete contrast, Henry Stein has been using his Lightworks Alacrity to edit material for pop promos, events, etc. for many, many famous Pop Stars. These have included the latest Oasis release (and many of their previous releases & events) and Henry’s work also includes editing material for the Led Zeppelin’ reunion concert - “The House that Ahmed built” as a tribute to Ahmed Ertegun, Rod Stewart tour, Keane live DVD and Sir Paul McCartney, including “The McCartney Years” DVDs.
Bringing us right up to date, and with yet another challenging application, Lightworks editing systems were used to edit the film, Mamma Mia!. To celebrate this event there is to be a Prize Draw at the end of September 2008 and any one who has purchased a Lightworks or Gee Broadcast product since 24 July 2008, will be entered into this Draw to win a stay in a superb Villa on the island of Skiathos – one of the islands used for the filming of Mamma Mia! Henry Stein has kindly agreed to do the draw and there are many people hoping that they will be the lucky ones – but there is still time for more to enter by making their purchase before the end of September!!
Lightworks comes in various flavours :
Softworks - Software only for fully featured HD & SD editing – for PC or Laptop
Softworks LE - As Softworks but with more limited effects
Alacrity MR+ - HD & SD Real Time Editing systems, off line or on line for video & film

The Biggest Toy Shop in the World
Emma Morrison When Nigel Woodford started his career at BBC Wood Norton in 1962, television was black and white and BBC Two had not yet been launched. In 2018 Nigel will retire, and Richmond Film Services, the pro-audio equipment rental company set up by Nigel in 1973, can count numerous contributions to iconic moments in British cultural, sporting and film history over this time.

Creating Authentic Content That Counts
Frank le Mair We’re deep into the 2010’s and the way in which we consume content has changed forever. Broadcasters and content owners are fighting for eyeballs in a saturated market where consumers are watching their favourite shows on different devices across a number of platforms. To target millennials and younger generations, who generally consume short bursts of video on YouTube and social media - particularly Snapchat, Instagram and now IGTV - media companies are creating more and more authentic stories and are using platforms that are compelling for this demographic. Unlike generations before them, they have totally new video viewing patterns and ideals.

The Pace of Change
Dick Hobbs - new

The youngest human to stand on the moon (so far) was Charles Moss, the lunar module pilot of Apollo 16. Charlie had a wonderful claim: his father witnessed the Wright Brothers’ first flight at Kitty Hawk, and lived to see his son on the moon.

Does anything capture the speed of technological advance better than that? The whole of the history of powered flight in one lifetime.
