Meduza Set To Ship TITAN 3D Camera System
The Meduza TITAN 3D Camera system has arrived and will be shown at BVE...

J

ust 20 months since the Meduza
concept camera was first
unveiled at NAB, Meduza Systems
has started shipping cameras this
month.
The all-in-one fully controllable
professional 3D camera system
has kept all of its original promises
boasting full wireless control of iris,
focus , interaxial and convergence.
The fully modular camera has an
impressive 30–110mm IA and will
shortly include a bolt on mirror head
that will bring IA down to ‘zero’.
The entire system is lightweight
at only five kilos and has been
specifically designed to provide
efficiency and speed and extreme
cost effectiveness in 3D filming.
The camera uses the Meduza
Delta 4k S3D matched pair lenses.
4.8, 6, 8 10, 12, 17, 23 and 35mm
focal lengths are currently available
with 50 and 70mm as a special order.
Set up time, which is a one man
job, is only a few minutes.

The requirement for accessibility
and flexibility has never been
greater in 3D production.
The TITAN 3D Camera is a
revolutionary concept that
promises to strip away the burden
of excessive extra crew, time
and equipment costs, making
economic and affordable quality
3D production accessible to every
genre of broadcast and filmmaking.
Tripod, shoulder or Steadicam
mounted the TITAN 3D Camera
creates an access to a POV that
up until now has been very difficult
to achieve and still control all of
the dynamics.
“To move from filming in 2D to
filming in 3D is like moving from
painting to sculpture, it requires a
completely new set of tools as well
as a new set of ideas,” said Chris
Cary CEO of Meduza Systems.
“What we have developed is the
single camera that the artist needs,
to replace what has been available

Meduza Systems’
TITAN 3D Camera
promises affordable
3D shoots

and liberate creativity from the
constraints of early technology”.
In addition to the mirror head
the modular Meduza system is
an evolving platform that will
include both hi speed and 4K
interchangeable module options
later this year.
W h i l e t h e p re p ro d u c t i o n
prototypes continue their world

demo tour (see the website for
details) the first ‘go to’ rental
houses are confirmed as Tectum in
Berlin, Decode in London, Radiant
Images and Camera House in LA.
“We are actively supporting a
project in India and are now looking
for viable projects to support in the
UK,” said Cary.

Provys TVoffice System Conquers The Sierra Nevada
Sunny southern Spain is now the home of a Provys TVoffice channel management system which has
been installed at Canal Sur in Seville...

T

he upgrade, which was part of
a project that has introduced
t a p e l e s s wo r k f l ow to th e
broadcaster’s transmission area,
saw Provys' local partner, Spanish
system integrator Promovisa,
manage the project and undertake
much of the on-site installation.
Provys handles all the schedules,
including the programme material
that is transmitted in all the eight
popular provinces of Andalucía,
Almería, Cádiz, Córdoba, Granada,
Huelva, Jaén and Málaga, nestling at
the foot of the Sierra Nevada, as well
as Seville. This results in a daily mix

By Martin Junek
Commercial Director
Provys

of shared content that is transmitted
uniformly across the whole territory,
and local content that is different
for each region, especially the
local commercials.
Provys is used for many aspects
of the channel management,
including scheduling. Because the
regions have sections
of regional content,
P ro v y s p re p a re s
one central playlist
for Seville, as well
as seven additional
regional playlists for
the regional opt-outs.
The central playlist
indicates when the
regional playlists
should run. The Pebble
Beach Marina playout
system receives all
eight playlists and
Provys is used for channel management tasks
plays them out –

temporarily switching to the multiple
regional playlists when indicated in
the central playlist.
The introduction of Provys at Canal
Sur is a part of a wider project to
introduce tapeless workflow at the
channel. For this the Provys system
includes the following integrated
modules: programme library,
media library, long-term planning
and presentation scheduling. It is
interfaced both to the Pebble Beach
Marina playout system and the Tedial
MAM system. Whilst Tedial covers
the media processing, Provys, being
a great ‘mediator’ between archive
and playout, concentrates on media
workflow and metadata management.
As a part of this integrated
workflow, the addition of Provys
Media Layer facilitates digital
material management: tracking
all video files with searches, lowresolution previews, deep archiving

and restoring the material to
transmission video servers when
needed to go on air, ascending the
rocky road to MAM.
As broadcasters continue to face
tight budgets it becomes increasingly
important that they operate at peak
effectiveness making the very best
use of available assets, including
archives, and have a streamlined,
efficient workflow. Provys is a
modular broadcast management
system that can be applied to
mountains as well as molehills,
from small to whole-broadcaster
scale. It is designed to help manage
a programme all the way from its
first concept or archive, through
production to the dizzy heights of
flawless transmission.
In reality each system is different
and the management needs to fit
with the particular needs of each
user. Provys can help to coordinate
some or all of the operations to
make sure programmes are made
and delivered on time and on budget.
It can be approached at any scale.
Many customers that start out with a
relatively small system expand it over
the years to manage many facets of
their operation.
