Input Media Launches
Productions In Australia
W

ithin months of launching, Input
Media in Australia recently
secured its first contracts with two
major domestic sports federations.
Cricket
Australia
and the National
Basketball
League have
Chris Law,
MD of Input
Media Australia

both recently signed production
agreements for live streaming and
broadcast solutions with Input Media
Australia, launched earlier this year
following the acquisition of Input
Media in London by Gravity Media
Group (GMG).
The launch of Input Media Australia
has followed that acquisition and is the
next phase of GMG's global expansion.
"It's fair to say we have hit the
ground running," said Chris Law, MD
of Input Media Australia. "Input Media
launched in Australia with two goals in
mind.
"The first is to support endto-end broadcast production
as part of the overall GMG

group offering that sees Input Media
Australia
providing
production
expertise with Gearhouse Broadcast,
the technical facilities and HyperActive
Broadcast, the post-production.
"The second goal is directly
beneficial to our clients who don't
have in-house broadcast or production
expertise and are looking to improve
operational workflows and drive cost
efficiencies, particularly at sporting
events."
Cricket Australia is one of Input
Media Australia's first clients who have
adopted a live streaming solution,
which offers high end broadcast
quality production for sports events at
an affordable cost.

Bexel Boosts 4K Sony Inventory

B

exel is expanding its 4K and
HDR capabilities with the initial
purchase of five Sony PXW-Z450
camcorders.
Over the next year, Bexel, a NEP
Broadcast Services Company, will
increase its investment to 20 of the
camcorders, which will see their first
use for coverage of the upcoming
events in PyeongChang, South
Korea.
"With the growth of OTT
services, many of our clients
are stepping up production in
4K and UHD projects for a variety
of non-traditional platforms such

as Netflix, Amazon Prime, Facebook
Live, and YouTube Live," said Tom
Dickinson, Vice President, Technology,
Bexel.
"Many of these shows, particularly
the unscripted ones, involve a fair
amount of field acquisition work
to which a broadcast-style ENG

ENG-style Sony-PXW-Z450

camcorder is better suited than is a
cinema-style camera."
Dickinson also noted a growth in
demand for HDR, which following a
pending update, the PXW-Z450 will
provide. The PXW-Z450 camcorders,
the first 4K shoulder-style cameras
to join the Bexel rental inventory, are
able to record 4K QFHD (3,840 x
2,160) at 50p/59.94p, as well as
a variety of HD formats including
XAVC Intra, XAVC Long GOP, MPEG
HD 422, and MPEG HD 420.
Bexel's 4K inventory includes
Sony 4300 cameras for studio
productions.

live and VOD sports content from both
regional and international matches

SportsFix CEO Carl Kirchhoff
