    Blackmagic Design's ATEM Production

    August 5, 2011, 3:39 pm
    Since its opening in 2004, Oxegen festival has hosted a variety of top international performances, including The Who's first appearance in Ireland in more than 35 years.
    Dublin's Oxegen Festival Brings Music to the Masses with Blackmagic Design's ATEM Production Switcher




    Blackmagic Design today announced that Blackmagic Design’s ATEM 1 M/E Production Switcher was used at Ireland’s biggest music festival, Oxegen Festival in Dublin.



    Since its opening in 2004, Oxegen festival has hosted a variety of top international performances, including The Who’s first appearance in Ireland in more than 35 years. This year’s event saw Beyonce, Coldplay, Black Eyed Peas and Foo Fighters take the main stage, along with hundreds of other artists from around the globe.



    Setanta Screens’ AV Manager, John Moriarty, supplier of LED screen technology and audio visual production services to leading event organizers and promoters throughout Europe, purchased the ATEM 1 M/E Production Switcher specifically for Oxegen Festival 2011 in order to broadcast and mix the live stage performance feeds during the three day event. A Blackmagic Design DVI Extender was also used to convert computer generated graphics from DVI to SDI, and Blackmagic Design’s UpDownCross Mini Converters were used to up convert standard definition material to HD SDI.



    Moriarty said, “We received the ATEM a few days before the event and I set it up in my living room by connecting to my plasma TV to test the multi viewer. It was very easy to set up and I found my way around the hardware and software quite quickly.”



    “Using the software based mixing panel was easy. There was no steep learning curve and having read the manual regarding importing graphics, I found it was simple to use. Our overall decision lied in the fact that it was good value for money, there are a range of inputs and outputs, and the ease of set up and use made all sources synced. We look forward to using more Blackmagic and ATEM products on our upcoming events.”

      The Misconception That Cutting Action isn't an Int

      January 23, 2019, 1:19 pm
      Of the 250 top-grossing films in 2017, women comprised only 16% of all editors. That makes Debbie Berman, co-editor of Black Panther, a glowing exception. And not only has Berman had a successful career spanning work in her homeland of South Africa, Canada and now LA, she’s made a name for herself in the Marvel sphere. Last year, she co-edited Spider-Man: Homecoming, this year, the ground-breaking Black Panther alongside Michael Shawver (Fruitvale Station) and has the Brie Larson-led Captain Marvel out this year.

      Snubs And Surprises Loom Large at the Oscars

      January 23, 2019, 6:09 am
      As we continue to make sense of the Academy Award nominations that were announced yesterday, a few things are very clear. Chiefly, we saw that the new crop of voters, representing a more diverse background, spread the love out more than usual. We sort of expect that, but perhaps not to this extent. As such, there were a whole host of snubs and surprise inclusions about 24 hours ago. As we start to make sense of it all, we can begin by looking at what the actual snubs and surprises were. There were plenty, so there’s no shortage. I picked out six specific ones to look at, but the list easily could have been doubled. Hell, I didn’t even include Emily Blunt’s double snub…

      What the Oscar's Cancelled Category would look lik

      January 23, 2019, 6:09 am
      OLLYWOOD, EARTH 2 — The 2019 Oscar nominations were revealed on Tuesday morning, and for the first time in Academy Awards history that includes the controversial Popular Film category. When changes to the awards show were first announced in 2018 the initial response was critical, but now that the nominations have arrived this gambit seems to be paying off with a diverse group of movies sparking excitement for the 91st Academy Awards. After Lana Condor posted on Instagram about the nomination for her Netflix movie To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, the Academy’s Instagram account saw an influx of over one million new followers, most of them high school students.

      6 Filmmaking Tips from Sergei Eisenstein

      January 22, 2019, 8:41 pm
      Along with the likes of D. W. Griffith and Yasujirō Ozu, Soviet filmmaker and theorist Sergei Eisenstein was one of the most influential directors of cinema’s formative years. Often deemed the “Father of Montage,” Eisenstein’s filmography includes such influential works as Battleship Potemkin (1925), October: Ten Days That Shook the World (1928), and Alexander Nevsky (1938).
