mode is specially designed to ensure
that input video signal quality is
retained," added Blatchford.

Axon's SynView modular multiviewer

will be demonstrated running
multiple screens from two cards.
Ad insertion
Enensys will address the problem
of cost-effective regional content
insertion in DTT and cable networks
with AdsEdge. This supports the
'splicing' of file-based content, (ad
spots, local news, regional weather
forecasts), at the final stage of signal
distribution - the transmitter site in
DTT's case; local cable headends for
redistribution in others.

"Legacy splicing technologies were
often hampered by issues with channel
counts, propagation delays, and GOP
boundary
limitations,"
contends
Starfish Technologies
Marketing
Director Peter Blatchford. "TS Splicer
was designed to address those issues,
which equates to increased reliability,
accuracy and, ultimately, profit."
TS Splicer runs on generic hardware
and provides simultaneous splicing of
more than 20 HD or SD video services
on a single sever. It also supports
MPEG-2, H.264 and HEVC encoded
media. "Its frame-accurate splicing

Storage
The integration of Solid State Drive
technology "significantly increases"
the available shared bandwidth for 4K
production, says Facilis. Its presenting
Flash/SSD technology, which is now
incorporated within the TerraBlock
Hybrid24 and SSD8 products. "Storage
capacity increases have also been
announced across the model line,
with substantially lower price points,
making TerraBlock accessible to the
broadest range of users," says James
McKenna, VP Marketing and
Sales.
Announced
at
NAB,
Editshare's shared storage
platform XStream EFS
SSD comes in 8TB, 16TB
and 24TB sizes. This too
integrates with the Flow
MAM allowing users to log,
track, search and retrieve
4K assets and metadata.

Quantum's stand will feature
demonstrations of content transcoding
and delivery with object storage, the
use of hybrid flash and disk storage in
combination to enable frame-based
animation creation and stream-based
editing on a single storage system.
"At IBC, we'll highlight ways in which
StorNext powers what's next, how
Xcellis supports media workflows from
end to end, and how media companies
can realise added storage efficiencies
by extending their operations onto our
low-latency, massively scalable Lattus
object storage system," said Geoff
Stedman, SVP, Marketing and Scaleout Storage Solutions.

DaVinci Resolve At Core Of Rovers
Managing director at Core Post Matt Brown reveals how he used DaVinci Resolve's 3D tracker, key lighting,
and colour tools to complete the final grade for new Sky 1 football comedy drama series, Rovers...

E

ver wonder what life is like if
you're the steadfast supporter of a
football club so small it has an average
attendance figure of just 27?
Set in the run down clubhouse of
fictional non-league team Redbridge
Rovers FC, new Sky 1 football comedy
series Rovers delivers a hilarious
depiction of football fandom away
from the glitz and glamour of the
Premier League.
Delivering
full
post-production
for the comedy series, including
completion of the final grade
using DaVinci Resolve Studio, was
Salford-based post house, Core Post.
"Our team have historical working
connections with both Director Craig
Cash's Jellylegs Productions and
Producer Gill Isles, so we were very
excited about the idea of working on
a brand new comedy together," says
Managing Director and Colourist at
Core Post, Matt Brown.
He explains that he maintained a

very close working relationship with
both Cash and Director of Photography
Daf Hobson from the very start,
exploring the various looks that could
be used to grade each episode.
"The key challenge we faced, as
with all comedy drama, was to retain
the detail in the actors' faces, while
still achieving the desired look," he
says. "DaVinci Resolve was perfect
for handling this. It was more than
capable of enhancing the fill areas
whenever required, which allowed me
to quickly and easily give the overall
look a lift in the shadows to counteract
the darker areas."
Another challenge that had to be
overcome to complete the final grade
on Rovers was to correct the tendency
for the characters' flesh tones to take
on a magenta hue. "For this, I used
DaVinci Resolve's secondary colour
control," says Brown. "Quite often on
Rovers you would have shots where
multiple characters were in the same

frame, and for these we could employ
the fantastic 3D tracker, this time
combined with the hue corrector or
colour wheels to even the flesh look
across the picture. Finally, subtle
vignettes were applied throughout to
frame the characters and add some
intimacy."
"From when I first trained to use a

Core Post Managing Director Matt Brown

DaVinci 2K system for drama postproduction, DaVinci Resolve has been
invaluable in allowing me to enhance
the creative look and vision from the
director and cinematographer," Brown
concludes. "The amazing tools within
the latest version of Resolve massively
helped in bringing Rovers to life."
