    Gotham Girls Roller Derby Goes Live W/ Blackmagic

    June 16, 2011, 10:59 am
    Milpitas, CA – June 15, 2011 – Blackmagic Design today announced the ATEM 1 M/E Production Switcher and ATEM 1 M/E Broadcast Panel are being used by the Gotham Girls Roller Derby League for live production of the league's 2011 matches.
    New York City’s only all female, do it yourself, skater operated roller derby league, the Gotham Girls have
    become one of the quickest growing sports leagues in New York City. The ability to provide high quality live
    production and post match rebroadcasting has become a cornerstone of the league’s success. Derby matches
    are shot in HD, and each match generates a live video webcast live streamed internationally on the Derby News
    Network portal (www.derbynewsnetwork.com), a rebroadcast on NYC life (the flagship station of the official TV,
    radio, and online network of New York City) and videos and DVDs for post match distribution.



    ATEM 1 M/E Production Switcher is used at each match in conjunction with up to six cameras capturing tight
    shots of players, wider area views following the "pack," and announcer and crowd shots. The league also uses
    ATEM 1 M/E Production Switcher for in match graphic overlays and effects, displaying statistics and combining
    different visual elements through upstream and downstream keyers for an incredible in person experience.
    Following matches, the combined HD line cut from the system is used as the base edit for rebroadcast and DVD
    development.



    "League members and fans are passionate about the sport, and it is our dream to nurture derby’s growth via well
    produced content. In order for it to grow, we need to pull together high quality live production and broadcasts
    that capture the fun of the game as well as educate viewers on rules and strategies. The ATEM is a huge part
    of helping us realize our dreams for the Gotham and the sport as a whole," said Tammy Walters, Executive
    Producer, of the Gotham Girls Roller Derby televised show on NYCTV.



    Continued Walters, "We needed a live switcher and control panel that was reliable, versatile, affordable and
    easy to use. We were thrilled to find that the ATEM fits the bill. Also, the ability to integrate live score stat
    graphics via custom third party software, Rinxter (www.rinxter.com), was a major plus."



    Technical Director / Producer Franklin Zitter added: "With the large number of inputs and outputs, along with all
    the other pro features that the ATEM 1 M/E offers, we’ve been able to easily and affordably integrate it into our
    production and make the jump to HD. We are constantly thinking of new ways we can configure the switcher to
    bring our show to the next level. Even members of our video crew with no prior technical experience are able to
    easily be trained in setup and operation of the ATEM."

      Restoration and colourisation of 100 year old WWI

      October 14, 2018, 6:31 am
      I sometimes think that we're protected from the full horror of the World Wars by the poor quality of the moving images from the two 20th century conflicts. Equally you could argue that the existence of film at all hammers home the gritty reality more than words ever could. But the results of Peter Jacksons' work support the former of these two suggestions. It's mind blowing. We'll talk about the technical side in a moment, but first, just look at the footage. It's astonishing. It's been stabilised, clocked at the correct speed, and very obviously (if you're familiar with film from this era) been cleaned up. And then it's had colour added.and effectively

      Blackmagic Design eGPU Shooter's Review

      October 12, 2018, 12:18 pm
      I do not care how the Blackmagic Design eGPU looks. I do not care how it works. I only care if it speeds up my exports. As a shooter I sometimes find myself in a hotel room offloading footage for a client and prepping my gear for the next morning’s call time. Shoot and charge batteries and sleep that can be the cameraman’s life at times.

      Episode 161 — The Hustler's Mindset

      October 12, 2018, 9:34 am
      This is Allan McKay. Welcome to Episode 161! This week, I’m making a deep dive into mindset because it’s the glue that makes everything stick. One of the key things, as we go through our careers — is having the right mindset. I wanted to touch on that for a lot of reasons: A lot of us are in a hurry and we think that there is this ONE magic bullet: “If only I learn that one software — everything will be okay.”

      Learn VEGAS Pro 16 – HDR Color Management

      October 11, 2018, 12:33 pm
      HDR is a topic we’ve covered in great detail on PVC, and the appeal of the format can be simplified by saying that if 4K is about more pixels, HDR is about better pixels, and that’s a difference audiences have come to recognize. It’s also the reason that VEGAS Pro 16 now offers an end-to-end workflow for High Dynamic Range color. VEGAS Pro users can now deliver HDR content with stunning color and detail along with important metadata. The software is also compatible with professional HDR-capable cameras, monitors, and other hardware.
