Articles You May Have Missed – August 2, 2017

Leading-edge video productions often become laboratories for the use of new technology or current technology applied in new ways. Many times the new solutions are not so much experimentation for new ideas, but just efforts to solve workflow issues. Here are two articles that illustrate how the programs’ producers used tested technology in new ways to solve old problems.

Broken is a six-part TV drama series, created by screenwriter Jimmy McGovern that first broadcast on BBC One. In this special interview, Patrick Hall, Head of Post at Liverpool producer LA Productions explains the main post workflow.

This article goes behind the scenes to examine the equipment and workflow used to produce this highly rated program. Said Hall, “The production was all ProRes 4444, shot on the Panasonic VariCam, and all in 4K. For the BBC delivery we were still delivering 1920 by 1080 though, so we used Blackmagic Design DaVinci Resolve to do some real-time down conversions which was really impressive with the 4K footage.” Learn more in the article, “LA Productions Explains The Post Work Behind BBC Drama Broken.”

This year TNDV supported its 10th the “Road To The Horse” competition with its "Aspiration" HD production truck.

The annual three-day event drew thousands of horse-loving spectators, as well as a global online audience that watched the live webcast on Road to the Horse TV—thanks to technical service provided by Nashville, Tenn.-based mobile production company TNDV.

This year’s technical production relied on Hitachi Z-HD5000 HD cameras and Fujinon lenses to capture the excitement and required the most extensive audio infrastructure for the event to date. The audio team mixed multiple audio channels using a Soundcraft Vi3000 console, and all tracks were recorded to Avid's ProTools HDX and a Sound Devices Pix270 recorder.
