    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.”

      Thelma Schoonmaker on sculpting Silence

      January 21, 2017, 10:38 am
      The legendary editor is sitting in the Midtown Manhattan office where she cut Scorsese's latest, his deeply felt spiritual epic about Jesuit priests in feudal Japan. Schoonmaker sits in between her monitors and those for Scorsese, added about a year ago so he could sit even closer to Schoonmaker while they worked. It makes for a jumble of screens, especially when the one devoted to Turner Classic movies is factored in. "This used to be quite a beautiful room," Schoonmaker says with only mild regret.

      Stop-Motion and VFX Converge in Kubo

      January 21, 2017, 10:38 am
      If you’ve ever heard visual effects supervisor Steve Emerson talk about his job, or his most recent work on Kubo and the Two Strings, you’ve probably said to yourself, “Jeez, I so want to work at Laika.” Now, whether you’d want to ply your trade as a CG animator or arc welder is beside the point – Laika’s hands-on filmmaking philosophy, nuts and bolts production mindset and dedication to cutting edge hand-made movies is highly intoxicating. And no one embodies that “we’re kind of nuts” mentality more fully, nor better articulates its coolness, than Mr. Emerson.

      Is It Worth Round-Tripping To Resolve?

      January 21, 2017, 10:38 am
      I decided to do a test on how much time is saved/lost by rendering a project out and grading in Resolve vs staying in Lumetri, what I found was neato.
