Broadcast Solutions Finland modernises Directors Cut production control rooms

Broadcast Solutions Finland modernises Directors Cut production control rooms

In the two renewed multipurpose control rooms, Director's Cut creates the Finnish national programmes for international sporting events (e.g. football Champions League, ice hockey or tennis). Director's Cut's primary customer is MTV3, Finland's largest private television station.

After the successful implementation, it is now possible to produce up to six Finnish-language programme feeds simultaneously from two multipurpose control rooms with only two producers. One Mainfeed and two Sidefeeds can be produced per control room. Audio processing takes place in a Lawo Powercore. Control is via Lawo VisTool user interfaces and an 8-fader Ruby console for the Mainfeed and via two 4-fader Ruby consoles for the two Sidefeeds.

Broadcast Solutions created the VisTool interfaces especially to meet the individual workflows of Director's Cut. The new facility also includes six commentator booths equipped with Lawo LCUs and 43" Sony monitors.

One Grass Valley 1ME Kula vision mixer and two Grass Valley channel branding processors are available per control room for image processing. As part of the renewal, Broadcast Solutions also replaced the video matrix, which had become too small, with a 168x168 Grass Valley Sirius 830 matrix with an integrated 96 x 12 multiviewer. A Lawo VSM system controls the complete installation.

One challenge of the successfully implemented project was the short project period and the fact that the modernisation was carried out during ongoing operation with only ten days available for the actual switch-over.

Further information on Director's Cut can be found on the website: http://www.directorscut.fi/en.

Meet the project engineers of this modernisation and further studio projects during the Broadcast Innovation Day 2019. Broadcast Innovation Day 2019 takes place at Broadcast Solutions' headquarters in Bingen, Germany, 28 November 2019.

Further information on the Broadcast Innovation Day 2019 can be found here: www.broadcast-innovation-days.com.
