WORLD NEWS New BP-U replacement batteries H awk-Woods has announced the launch of their new range of replacement Sony BP-U lithium-ion batteries. The new replacement BP-U batteries are designed to work as direct replacements for Sony’s BP-U battery and Hawk-Woods has underpinned this new range with the addition of two chargers; they include both a 2 and 4-channel simultaneous fast charger. The range includes a smaller low-cost 30Watt option, a bigger standard 60Watt battery and a new 75W version; for those looking for extended run times. As standard the batteries are fitted with a fuel gauge and connect directly to the camera without the need of external leads. To compliment these BP-U style batteries are a range of power adaptors designed and manufactured by Hawkwoods to allow the user to power other equipment like sound kit, monitors and wireless; broadening the batteries appeal to wider range of users and, of course, carrying the  Hawk- Woods brand name - known for reliability and dependability - built up over 20 years within the Film and TV Market. www.hawkwoods.com UK and Ireland Baselight Editions reseller appointed T UEFA Championship enhanced with sports replay server O rad, leader in broadcast graphics solutions have announced its PlayMaker sports replay server played a significant role in the production of the UEFA Euro Under-21 Championships. The 15-game tournament, held over a period of two weeks, was produced by Mizmor Productions. Mizmor has used PlayMaker for major sports productions extensively over the past four years. www.orad.tv/playmaker yrell, a leading provider of broadcast and production technology solutions and services, has been appointed as the first Baselight Editions reseller for the UK and Ireland, focusing on Baselight for Avid. This move builds on the successful launch of the software-only product from FilmLight, which allows access to its most sophisticated grading tools with minimal outlay. Baselight Editions provides the same core toolset as a full Baselight system, including the same UI, but as a software-only package that can be incorporated into an existing NLE workstation. Everything you do within Baselight for Avid is saved in the project and can be embedded in an exported AAF file for further grading work in another Avid or full Baselight system. This workflow is fully bidirectional, so a graded project can be re-imported from a session in a full Baselight suite with all edits and Baselight layers intact. www.tyrellcct.com TV-BAY MAGAZINE: ISSUE 80 AUGUST 2013 | 33
