Shooting RAW on a budget

Let’s begin with production, where the image is captured. A good plan of attack is starting with best scenario for image capture. The capture might be camera RAW or a compressed format such as ProRes. In either case the image will be captured to a hard drive or mag, which will be downloaded to another hard drive. A qualified person will generate proxies for editorial and make an archive, often to LTO tape but sometimes to another hard drive.

Genesys from Neve Helps Radar Sounds Stays True To Its Analogue Roots Posted: 03/07/2020
Neve and reg; Genesys Helps Radar Sounds Stays True To Its Analogue Roots

Radar Sounds, one of the few remaining studios in the UK to offer true analogue tape recording facilities, has installed a Neve® Genesys G32 console.

Studio owner "Fuzz" Barthram-Keet says: “I already own a pair of Neve® 1073DPA mic pre-amps and I know just how much I love the sound of them, so a Neve console was top of my shopping list. The desk’s fabulous analogue design and Neve preamp circuitry allows us to keep the mix analogue from start to finish without sacrificing modern features such as hands-on DAW control and connectivity.”

Radar Sounds is located on Platts Eyot, a small island in the River Thames (close to Hampton Court). As well as tracking, Fuzz also offers mixing and mastering services and describes the business as a ‘one stop shop’ for musicians, media companies and voice over artists.

DejaSoft supports in-house hosted S3 server in DejaEdit 3.1 Posted: 02/07/2020
DejaSoft supports in-house hosted S3 server in DejaEdit 3.1

DejaSoft has released version 3.1 to support private cloud environments using the open source MinIO object storage solution.

DejaEdit 3.1 brings cost-saving advantages, allowing clients to use their own servers, reducing ongoing costs of an Amazon hosted S3 account, but more importantly, bringing the whole data operation in-house, ensuring absolute control with regard to data security and integrity.

MinIO is an open source Object Server, which can run in-house on a Linux, Mac, and Windows server and available for Docker. MinIO provides data storage via an S3 compliant API. This allows applications, such as DejaEdit, to store objects in private centralised storage, rather than to a cloud-hosted Amazon S3 storage device.

The ability to operate in a private cloud environment further adds to the security management features released in DejaEdit 3, where permission to access specific assets by particular users can be controlled via a management console.

DejaEdit allows multiple, remote Avid editors to work together by mirroring locally stored media and edit assets to the local storage of other connected systems, using secure, background transfers across the internet. It can also be used to exchange media with on-location DITs and VFX/Audio houses.

Custom Consoles Module-R Desks Chosen for One of the Worlds Largest News Agencies

Custom Consoles announces the completion of control room desks and multiscreen monitor display mounts for the London studios of one of the world's largest news agencies. The desks were provided in partnership with broadcast system integrator ATG Danmon.

"Control room furniture is an important part of every major contract," comments ATG Danmon Managing Director Russell Peirson-Hagger. "Bespoke designs tend to be expensive and require very detailed specification. We commissioned all four desks by selecting optimal elements from Custom Consoles' established Module-R series. Our clients appreciate the robust build quality, excellent ergonomics and timeless styling of Module-R. The Module-R range is also well thought out in terms of cable ducting, equipment access and ventilation."
