Bexel Takes Univision from Burbank to Brazil for 2014 FIFA World Cup

Bexel Takes Univision from Burbank to Brazil for  2014 FIFA World Cup

Bexel, a unit of the Vitec Groups Services Division and a leading worldwide provider of broadcast services and solutions, is furnishing a complete production environment for Univisions broadcast of the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil¢. Faced with the largest remote production the network has ever undertaken, Univision turned to Bexel to design the system being used in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. To ensure that everything will work seamlessly for the month-long summer event, a senior team of engineers, IT experts, and senior executives travelled from Univisions Miami, Fla., headquarters to Burbank, Calif., to collaborate closely on the process with the team from Bexel.

From the beginning of the project, it was determined that Bexel would build out the studio at their headquarters in Burbank, break it down, crate it using their proprietary inventory and shipping system, transport it to Brazil via boat, and finally rebuild it on-site in Rio de Janeiro. The window of timing for the project was incredibly tight. Once the cases were removed from the ship, they had to clear Brazilian customs. Then there was just two weeks to reassemble the system, followed by two weeks of rehearsal time before live programming begins.

Univisions Enterprise IT Group was also with us in Burbank, setting up connectivity back to Miami. They were able to send files back and forth, confirming the system was operational. All they had to do in Brazil was re-establish the communication and the workflows, and the collaborative environment began again.

Bexel sent approximately 15 engineers to Brazil to reassemble the Univision system. Six members of the Bexel technical team are staying on for the entire run of the World Cup to provide 24/7 coverage and support. The Bexel-designed system consists of two large control rooms with Grass Valley 4 M/E Kayenne switchers and Calrec audio consoles. The file-based workflow consists of 11 Avid editing systems, four EVS XT3s for playback and instant replay, and a robust graphics system including augmented reality. Bexel is also providing Sony HDC-2500 cameras complete with a camera stabilization system and jib for their studio at the IBC.

We wanted to design a production environment for Univision that will have the flexibility to deliver everything they need, yet still have easily recognizable equipment, so their staff can walk in and know exactly what to do and how to use the systems, concluded Pastor. We relied on our many years of live broadcast experience for large events to deliver the systems necessary for this project. We have really enjoyed working with the team from Univision, and it was an honor to have them out here working with us on site.


In addition to Bexels work with Univision, Vitec brands supporting various other 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil broadcasts, include Anton/Bauer batteries and chargers, artemis camera stabilization systems and operators, Autoscript teleprompters, Litepanels LED lights, Sachtler V18 and V20 fluid heads, Vinten Osprey pedestals, Vinten Vector 75 and 750 pan-and-tilt heads, and a Vinten Radamec remote pan and tilt head.

Academy Award-winning production company chooses Avid-certified Workspace Backup tool

Zentropa in Denmark is one of the leading post-production companies in Europe, winning the most prestigious awards on the international film scene and producing over 200 films to date. The company has recently invested in Workspace Backup from Marquis Broadcast, to take backups of Avid work-in-progress as part of its disaster recovery plan.

CRYSTAL VISION RELEASES FLEXIBLE BUDGET-FRIENDLY PROFANITY DELAY SYSTEM FOR AUDIO AND VIDEO Posted: 22/05/2019
CRYSTAL VISION RELEASES FLEXIBLE BUDGET-FRIENDLY PROFANITY DELAY SYSTEM FOR AUDIO AND VIDEO

Cleanit is Crystal Vision's new profanity delay system. One of the few products available for protecting video as well as audio, Cleanit allows a live content stream to be delayed by up to 20 seconds in HD (ten seconds in 3Gb/s or 110 seconds in SD), giving the operator time to react and prevent the broadcast of unwanted or offensive video or audio material – such as expletives, obscene gestures, wardrobe malfunctions, bloopers, competitor mentions, coughing fits or technical problems. Features which make Cleanit the ideal profanity delay solution include its budget-friendly flexibility (multiple packages allow the broadcaster to just pay for the amount of protection needed), the ability to delay the programme by the exact amount required and the simple, intuitive control using a smart button box or computer GUI – with the choice of either manual or automatic operation of the cover/uncover functions.
