UHD channels Germany’s Pearl.tv has installed a 12G-SDI multi-camera workflow based around Blackmagic Design broadcast infrastructure for the 4k version of its satellite shopping channel. The new kit includes the ATEM 2 M/E Broadcast Studio 4k switcher, the Studio Camera 4k camera and the UltraStudio 4k Extreme video capture and playback device. As part of the upgrade the channel installed more than 800 metres of 12G-SDI single link coax in order to connect the facility’s two studios with a central production gallery. “Any of our existing SDI runs that were longer than two meters had to go and were replaced with premium 12G-SDI coax,” explained Pearl.tv general manager, Dr. Michael Sichler. “This ensured full signal integrity throughout our entire 4k production chain.” blackmagicdesign.com KITPLUS - THE TV-BAY MAGAZINE: ISSUE 109 JANUARY 2016 | 25
