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.”

Art has been a huge gift for me and I’m grateful to my past self for taking the chance to pursue it. I didn’t try to make a career in art until I turned 30, and I didn’t get my foot in the door until I was 33. Because of what I considered were my limitations, I didn’t take this opportunity for granted. I was pretty fearless early on because I felt as though I had nothing to lose. It was a tough road filled with self-doubt.

When getting to know compression it's really common for people to use percussive sounds. That's understandable as they are ideal for getting to know the important controls, particularly the attack and release controls. In this premium video tutorial, Pro Tools Expert Team member Julian Rodgers explores the effect of attack and release times on sounds with slower dynamic changes.

More likely than not, an Art of the Cut interview with Brent White, ACE, would probably be about editing comedy. His previous work includes, Ghostbusters, Spy, Anchorman (1 and 2), Step Brothers, Knocked Up, Talladega Nights and The 40 Year old Virgin, and before that, Desperate Housewives and Freaks and Geeks. It was his time at Freaks and Geeks that connected him with the cadre of the best and brightest directors in comedy.

BOD is a freeware emulation of the highly rated Sansamp Bass Driver pedals. I've used these pedals live many times and they are one of those things which just work. There isn't a great deal to say about this as it is a simple stomp emulation but that isn't to say that this isn't a good plug-in, it's great! Try it and you'll see why this pedal is so popular with the bass playing community.
