Expanding on-air creativity I n preparation for the 2014 Formula One® (F1) racing season, Reality Check Systems (RCS) upgraded its Uppercut production system for Sky Sport Deutschland as part of a three-year engagement designed to streamline the network’s live broadcasts and minimize production over- head. To bring advanced digital video effects (DVE) capabilities to Sky Sport’s existing Uppercut system, which RCS originally developed and installed for the network last year, RCS’ Steven Heimbold led a five-per- son team in designing innovative state logic software to simplify 3D DVE transitions and broaden creative graphics capabilities on Uppercut for Sky Sport’s remote F1 productions. 10 | TV-BAY MAGAZINE: ISSUE 90 JUNE 2014
