Blackmagic Design today announced that ViSo Video Solutions has upgraded its virtual reality studios, relying on Ultimatte 12 compositing processors and URSA Broadcast cameras, to produce national television commercials and shows, for clients such as Sky Italia, Mediaset, ESL and Netco Sports.

Founded in 2010, the company not only offers clients its VR services, it also creates all computer generated (CG) and 3D assets needed in house, and provides all post production which includes editing and grading in DaVinci Resolve Studio.

“Augmented and virtual studio environments bring so many benefits to productions,” begins Luigi Nino, general manager at ViSo. “We chose to develop our VR system in house so that we could control every aspect, and customize materials, lighting, animations and effects for each clients’ specific needs.”

The studio’s VR set is 130 square meters and uses three tripod mounted URSA Broadcasts as well as a dolly mounted 4.5m jib on a six meter track. An ATEM 4 M/E Broadcast Studio 4K, with ATEM 1 M/E Advanced Panel, is used for live vision mixing.

Photon Beard Sheds Light on Green Screen Posted: 20/07/2010
green_screen Professional lighting specialists Photon Beard today announced the creation and installation of new studio lighting for "Green Screen Soho" at London-based arts and entertainment advertising agency Media Junction.
 
The self-contained, 1100 square foot studio includes a bespoke U-shaped floor-to-ceiling infinity cyclorama by chromakey supplier VFX that features the energy-saving Photon Beard "Highlight" cool lighting fluorescent lighting system, which has the advantage of low power consumption and, therefore, less heat.
 
Media Junction's Head of Post Production Rob Nixon said, "Photon Beard has a reputation for high-quality, custom-made lighting systems. The system designed specifically for us provides consistent and even illumination throughout the new studio while requiring no special adaptations."
 
Photon Beard Sales Manager Mike Perry said, "Like many installations we work on, the site for the Green Screen Studio is on the second floor of a venerable building in Central London. The flexibility of our Highlight lampheads enabled us to create an evenly illuminated studio."
 
Green Screen Soho's new screen and photographic studio is designed for broadcast multi-camera interviews; TV commercials; music, theatre and TV promos; web presentations and streaming; as well as castings and auditions.
