Issue 95 - November 2014

We are moving into an era when technology enables us to streamline our workflow more than ever before and studios are looking to utilize equipment that is portable, versatile and energy efficient without undermining the quality of the end product. LED Lighting is increasingly more popular as LED technology advances and the unique features shines through. Studios are actively looking to cut huge energy bills, and require lighting equipment that is highly portable, mountable and versatile in terms of lighting quality; all this is now achievable with LED Lighting.

Sitting in the heart of London, just metres away from Oxford Circus Tube is a brand new State of the art purpose built studio that offers huge potential in capturing and delivering 4K media. The 2000 square foot TV and Film studio boasts a wide range of high tech gear, such as robotic 4K TV cameras, fibre optic networking and is exclusively lit by Rotolight's ANOVA Bi Colour V2 LED Floodlights.

Over 2 years in the making Celebro Studios have raised the bar in future proofing high quality media capture and delivery. Meticulously designed to offer all-purpose media production, Wesley Dodd, Chief Executive has utilised his vast experience to ensure London's first fully 4K studio lives up to expectation.

"The studio is purpose-built for broadcast, digital and web streaming, and represents a significant investment in what we see as the future of TV. A lot of broadcasters, publishers and NGOs are looking to make TV-standard programmes that might not necessarily be broadcast in the traditional way and may instead be streamed over the Internet." Said Dodd.

Wesley Dodd is a creative programme maker and consultant who has delivered high profile projects for some of the worlds top brands and broadcasters, with the likes of the Discovery Channel, BBC World Service and Coca Cola notable on his C.V!

"We purchased the ANOVA Bi Colour units for our BBC English language Drama that is broadcast to 47 countries. As we experienced a lot of mixed lighting, the ANOVA's were ideal and due to the nature of the show we needed equipment that would speed up work flow as we didn't have a great deal of time to film with a fast turn around between scenes. We were using a lot of HMI's on a ballast, which is just too much in a studio of a particular size, you tend to get noise from the ballasts as well. Using the Anova's made a huge difference and was the ideal replacement, cool to run, gives a beautiful kick in the eyes and are quiet!" Wesley said.

The Bi Colour ANOVA units can be electronically (either locally, wirelessly or through DMX) set to accurately reproduce any colour of white light from candlelight through to full daylight in 10 degree Kelvin steps 3150K - 6300K maintaining perfect colour temperature across the whole dimming range, which makes colour correction a very simple task when matching to ambient light, ideal for the Celebro Studio!

The Production Gallery is enabled for both HD and 4K mixing and can provide live programming for virtually any output, boasting bi-directional HD TV link to the BT tower and fibre optic IP networking! Not only is the studio networked but so are the ANOVA's, utilising the built in WiFi Control with the award winning Rotolight Magic Eye iPhone/ iPad app! Wesley said "I love the magic eye feature in this space, as the light does change in the studio we can easily change the colour temperature on the app It's so quick and simple".

A lot is discussed about the quality of lighting, especially LED's - known for green spikes, missing reds and poor colour rendition resulting in inaccurate skin tone results. As a 4K studio Celebro's requirements for high quality lighting systems was paramount. The ANOVA series has recently been put through its paces by former BBC Research Engineer and colour science expert Alan Roberts, developer of the Television Lighting Consistency Index (TLCI) which is fast becoming the industry standard for gauging the quality of broadcast lighting.

The ANOVA placed in the top category with a score of 86, and according to the TLCI scale, a score of 85 or higher is regarded as ideally suited for professional television/broadcast use with "errors so small that a colourist would not consider correcting them".

Wesley Dodd is very excited about the potential the studio has to become a key media facility in the heart of London and expects at least five international channels from Russia, Africa and the Middle East to launch in London over the next year which will increase demand for space of this ilk.

Never before has our industry faced such challenges; convergence, upscaling, new delivery platforms, mobile , online, broadcast, VOD. However, common fundamentals are still based around the quality of content production, and as 4K rolls out, the quality of lighting becomes ever more important.

Ruth Matos Interview - A Career Unfolds
Ruth Matos We first met Ruth when we employed her as a student to help with our live studio at BVE in 2013. We were struck by her determination, passion and ‘I’ll do anything to help’ attitude.

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.

Fast-moving productions need multi-cam RF reliability
Darren Bilton Wireless acquisition creates a level of freedom not possible with any other form of filming yet only a decade ago the technique was barely possible. The technology enabling live real-time connections over radio frequencies has advanced leaps and bounds such that there is barely an entertainment, documentary, sports or news format today that doesn’t benefit from at least one link system. That means the demands on the kit continues to rise and includes the need for fail safe multi-camera operation, ease of use and backwards compatibility all within a small, lightweight and budget-friendly package.
