Eyeheight's CC-2M colour corrector has been chosen for the latest series of the UK television variety show Saturday Night Takeaway. Produced at ITV's London Studios, the 2015 series commenced on February 21 and runs through to April 4. First broadcast in June 2002, Saturday Night Takeaway won the 2014 'BAFTA for Entertainment Programme' award. In the same year, presenters Anthony McPartlin and Declan Donnelly won the 'BAFTA Entertainment Performance' award for their role in the show.
"Eyeheight colour correctors have been used for many highly popular television productions here in the UK and around the globe," comments Eyeheight Sales Director Martin Moore. "Successful deployments include the world's longest-running children's television show, Blue Peter, outside broadcast sports events such as the Oxford & Cambridge boat race and the London Marathon, a major fashion series from MediaCity, the BBC Sports Personality of the Year Awards, the Stargazing Live science series, plus both the UK and German versions of I'm a Celebrity - Get Me Out of Here from Australia. Saturday Night Takeaway is a welcome addition to this illustrious list."
Designed for use in live television content creation, Eyeheight's CC-2M colour corrector allows a production team to ensure consistent colour matching when switching between multiple camera sources or making significant changes to camera angle. Operation is via a logical menu system which can be accessed quickly and easily from the front panel or remotely.
The CC-2M colour corrector allows independent real-time adjustment of red, green and blue component levels, master gain, lift, gamma and hue. A preview output provides a configurable split screen showing processed and unprocessed picture. Up to six plug-in modular colour correction cards can be accommodated in a 1RU intelligent chassis with easy channel switching. Up to eight panels can be networked. The CC-2M system also includes a maintenance mode to assist installation.
