    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."

      2017 iMac Pro Review

      December 12, 2017, 1:56 pm
      There’s an old saying about money burning a hole in one’s pocket. Every once in a while, a product comes along that has a similar but reverse effect on me — it’s a product that’s so compelling, so exciting, so gorgeous to look at, that it causes my wallet to heat up and maybe even burst into flames. The new iMac Pro is one of those products.

      Apple only promised two more products for 2017: the iMac Pro and the HomePod. While the company pushed back the HomePod release to 2018, there was no news on the iMac front, and we were starting to get worried we wouldn't see the device anytime soon.

      Deconstructing Woody

      December 12, 2017, 10:05 am
      The year was 1976. The place was the New York brownstone of editor Ralph Rosenblum, ACE. And the film was Woody Allen’s Annie Hall, released the following year to wide acclaim and four Oscar wins. One day after work, Allen and Susan E. Morse, ACE — later his main editor, then an assistant editor — found themselves leaving the cutting room at about the same time.

      Can you Color Correct if your are Color Blind?

      December 12, 2017, 10:05 am
      Enchroma glasses have been in the news this year for the exciting fact that they claim to offer increased color spectrum visibility to people with mild forms of color blindness. We decided to put them to the test to see if an editor we know, Ryan Charles, who himself suffers from color blindness, would be able to more effectively color grade projects after using the glasses.

      Why it's important to let your edit Breathe

      December 11, 2017, 5:15 am
      Editing is so much more than cutting. I mean, yeah, that's literally what you're doing—you're cutting digital video clips into smaller sizes in order to tell a story—but there's a whole lot more than that, or rather, a whole lot more to that than you may realize.
