CAMERAS Blackmagic Design has revealed that the latest series of Anne’s Kitchen, a cookery show that airs on Luxembourg’s RTL, was shot in Ultra HD 4k with various digital film and studio cameras including the URSA Mini 4.6K and Micro Studio Camera 4k. Five cameras were used in total during filming; a pair of URSA Mini 4.6K provided tight close ups and the medium wide shot while two URSA 4ks were used to capture wide shots of the kitchen while also covering the food preparation and cooking areas. A gimbal mounted Micro Studio Camera 4k provided a 360-degree shot of the kitchen. Post-production on the prime time series, including the edit and grade, was completed in DaVinci Resolve Studio. Blackmagic has also announced that Micro Cinema Cameras were used by second unit DP Casey Wilson to shoot action, point-of-view (POV) and close-up shots for a new Mountain Dew off-road commercial featuring professional race car driver Chase Elliott. blackmagicdesign.com/uk VIRTUALISED MEDIA PRODUCTION Nevion has announced a software update for its Sublime X2 family of hybrid compact routers that will allow them to process and route quad-stream UHD/4k. The processing capabilities provided by the Sublime X2 include audio embedding, clean switching and line synchronised quad-stream alignment. The Sublime X2 routers have redundant cross-point technology, a redundant controller and a multi-core signal processor. Currently they are available in 32x32 and 64x64 sizes. Johnny Dolvik, chief product and development officer at Nevion, said: “Like much of Nevion’s equipment, the Sublime X2 was designed to have a large part of its functionality based on software, which enables us to upgrade its capabilities without the need to change hardware. This offers a very strong return on investment case for our customers, and the addition of UHD/4k support proves the point clearly.” The Sublime X2 can handle UHD/4k and 3G/HD/SD simultaneously through sectioning of the ports, allowing for virtually any routing configuration both where the number of inputs matches the number the outputs and where it doesn’t. nevion.com FI SGL has an established history serving the archive needs of broadcast facilities around the world.
