24 7 News Channel BFMTV Upgrades Camera Tracking and Launches HD Virtual Studios with Hybrid Posted: 27/04/2011
BFMTV, a 24-hour French free-to-air news channel, has been using Hybrids virtual studio and robotic camera tracking systems to generate virtual studios for 15 hours per day of live production since 2005. Over the years, BFMTV have made multiple upgrades to their Hybrid virtual studio system, upgrading camera tracking systems, moving from 2D to 3D sets, and recently upgrading from SD to HD.

In 2005, when BFMTV first launched with Hybrid, they wanted to create a news channel with a look and feel similar to CNBC or CNN but they required a solution that would fit their space and budget constraints and could grow with the channel. After studying the products available on the market, they opted for a Hybrid solution as this enabled them to launch a complete 2D virtual set solution featuring a virtual video wall and including Hybrids precision robotic camera tracking systems with zero video or audio delay. The system was future proof, enabling them to expand the number of graphics engines and robotic heads, as well as migrate to 3D and HD over time.
