Coronation Street uses Crystal Vision interface to go HD Posted: 12/07/2010
Coronation Street uses Crystal Vision interface to go HD

Crystal Vision has been chosen as the exclusive interface supplier for the HD upgrade of Coronation Street. Made by ITV Studios, Coronation Street is the longest running British soap opera celebrating its 50th Birthday this December and is set in the fictional town of Weatherfield, a suburb of the city of Manchester. The 39 interface products were purchased and installed by UK systems integrator AVC, who recommended the use of Crystal Vision. The project was to upgrade two studios from SD to HD and to build two new two-camera Outside Broadcast vans (to replace the existing SD OB vehicles) in just 10 weeks while having zero impact on the production schedule. The studio upgrades were carried out in the existing apparatus areas and control rooms which made the project extremely challenging, so equipment delivery was critical.

Avid ensures Coronation Street goes HD Posted: 22/06/2010
Avid ensures Coronation Street goes HD
Avid today announced that its technology was at the forefront of ITV Studios upgrade to HD of the nation's favourite soap, Coronation Street. The first HD episode aired on ITV this week, six months prior to the soap's 50th anniversary.
 
The upgrade, which means the workflow has moved from an SD tape-based set-up to an HD file-based format, has been in progress for over two years with Avid offering ITV high-level consultancy, training and support throughout the entire process.
 
At the heart of the new HD workflow is an integrated Avid Unity ISIS media network with up to 12 HD video steams being ingested via Avid ISOsync's server recording software to Avid AirSpeed's media platform. Avid also worked closely with ITV to help develop and write the ISOsync application that enables linked multi-channel ingest and instant synchronised playback of the video streams to the studio.
 
Paul Hennessy, vice president of sales for EMEA, said: "This has been a great project for us to be a part of. We've been able to work very closely with ITV Studios and really understand what they needed to achieve from their HD workflow. With our products at its heart, ITV now has a HD workflow that's quick, efficient and productive - and we welcome the fact that more of Britain's best loved soaps will be following suit in the near future."
