Celebrating landmark year for 3D S ony Professional has celebrated a landmark year for 3D production as the BBCs Antiques Roadshow becomes the latest in a long line of flagship shows to trial 3D using Sony’s PMW-TD300 professional 3D camcorder. Since the launch of the camera at IBC last year, it has been used on a wide range of productions, including the Five Nations Rugby League Championship and Strictly Come Dancing, as major broadcasters experiment with 3D outside of live sports and landmark events. www.sony.co.uk/biz ShotLogger goes live S London Fashion Week comes to life B lackmagic Design have announced that production house Brightonart Ltd built a comprehensive AV control solution around Blackmagic Designs ATEM 1 M/E Production Switcher to capture runway looks from Vauxhall Fashion Scout, the largest independent showcase of the Fall 2012 London Fashion Week. Brightonart used Blackmagic Designs ATEM 1 M/E Production Switcher to cut live footage from HD-SDI video feeds shot by two Sony EX-1 cameras. Program output was then captured on two SSD recorders; a Blackmagic Design HyperDeck Studio recording uncompressed 10-bit as a rolling backup and the other using DNxHD or ProRes as the master working file. Signal distribution was handled by Blackmagics Multibridge Pro, which took care of the audio embed. The ATEM 1 M/E was also used for static or animated graphic loops that the designers wanted projected on the back wall of the runway, which were run out of an auxiliary port on the switcher and managed on a PC using Resolume Avenue VJ Software. www.blackmagic-design.com uitcase TV’s new functionality to ShotLogger makes live sports production ever easier How about creating multiple versions and formats of your live content in real-time?
