InSTUDIO Gearing Up For HD Studio Production
By Adrian Pennington
The vast majority of broadcast studios worldwide are now HD ready or live and the new ones due to come on line will have adopted HD from day one. Nonetheless the transition to HD continues to drive investment not least because HD images require a matching increase in movement quality and lens motion control. Camera manufacturers do still have SD models in their catalogues but there is no premium for buying HD cameras, so as studios are reequipped they will naturally be at least HD ready. In some markets there is huge investment in wholesale HD conversion – the new broadcast centre in Turkmenistan, for which the main supplier was Harris, a case in point – and in others it will be a gradual transition as equipment becomes life-expired. According to Joop Janssen, CEO, Vitec Videocom: “Production equipment recovered quite strongly from the recession, and looks reasonably healthy. The fundamental point is that the consumer demand for more and more high quality video content shows no sign of slowing, so we need the facilities to keep producing.”

The move to high-definition capable studio production – cameras, upgraded studio equipment and prompting kit – continues to meet the demand for HD content.

Buying HD cameras is just the tip of the iceberg, though. HD is demanding of all the ancillary products around the camera. Any disturbance to the stability of the camera looks like an earthquake in HD, so users need to upgrade the pedestals, tripods and heads. Deficiencies in lighting are also glaringly obvious in HD, with more care needing to be taken in ensuring the illumination is powerful, even and focused. Because of the detail required of the HD picture, studio sets have to be either very basic or relatively easy to maintain – or virtual. So the drive towards virtual sets is driving encoded pan and tilt heads and peds, both manual and robotic. “Virtual reality is increasingly being used to deliver flexible high quality set designs that appear perfect under the scrutiny that

HD images bring, something that can’t always be said of traditional physical set design,” says Vinten Radamec Product Manager Philip Dalgoutte. The market is expanding horizontally, too. Where once you had to go to a TV centre to shoot video, now sports venues, churches, shopping malls and community centres all have their own studios, using affordable, but broadcast quality – usually HD – equipment. “Studio managers wanting to create spaces which can deliver high production values and great creativity alongside productivity – getting more content out of the studio,” says Janssen.

Camera Robotics

which can operate in both manual and robotic mode. “For standardised programmes like news or sports magazines camera robotics are perfect, and can deliver high production values consistently and repeatedly,” says Janssen. “Switching the pedestals and heads to manual mode means more than just allowing experienced camera operators to drive the production. The positional detectors still report the location of each camera, meaning that virtual reality graphics systems can perfectly align computer-generated worlds with live action. So a studio used for the main evening news programme could, during the day, be doing something as different as children’s fantasy. More likely it could be used for current affairs programmes

One of the ways in which this will happen is with camera supports
