They achieved this by using iPhrame Vision. The compliance process was previously a very hardware dependent operation run from OB trucks on site; iPhrame Vision being a software application means operators can be based anywhere in the country with use of just a touch screen and PC. Pre-configured touch screen buttons loaded with graphics and audio commands enable the operators to apply visual effects or mute audio to any inappropriate content in the input feed within milli-seconds, causing minimal delay to the web-based feed. iPhrame Vision was born out of Suitcase TVs technology partnership with BBC Research and Developments Stagebox project. Stagebox caddy connects onto the video camera and transmits the video and audio over a time-synchronised network using standard IP- protocols, making it ideal for multi-camera live events. iPhrame vision allows SDI feeds to be used alongside IP based solutions such as stagebox, enabling flexible working which is ideally suited to multi- camera live studio or outside broadcast (OB) events says David Atkins, technical director of Suitcase TV.   We were very excited to have the opportunity to work on such a high profile events as One Big Weekend and Glastonbury and look forward to supporting the BBC when they use this same technology again for compliance at Reading Festival later this summer. www.suitcasetv.com
