Euro Media Gets Equipped with Sony for its 3D Solutions

Euro Media chooses the expertise of Sony Professional to enable them to offer customers the highest performing 3D production

Sony Professional has been selected to supply 3D production solutions - from filming to distribution and play out - to Europe's leading audio-visual provider, Euro Media Group. A total of 16 Sony HDC-P1 cameras and 8 OLED HDVF-EL75 viewfinders have been purchased and will be fitted to the 3D Rig Control II systems. These solutions will be used alongside Sony’s MPE-200 3D processing platform, allowing Euro Media to offer its customers high performance production solutions across all of its Group's business areas.

Over the last year Euro Media has witnessed a surge in 3D projects and this deal with Sony will enable the company to further strengthen its 3D solutions and offer its customers unrivalled performance in sport, cinema production/fiction and events. Sony Professional and Euro Media have a long relationship working together. Sony has also collaborated with Euro Media's partner, Microfilms, which supplied the 3D RIGs - Total Rig Control II - bringing a powerful solution to the market.

Julien Schneider, Head of New Technologies at Euro Group Media, explained: "The Microfilms 3D RIGs we have at Euro Media interface perfectly with the Sony solutions as they use microprocessors that recover real-time information straight from the 3D Box of the MPE-200".

Euro Media selected the Sony HDC-P1 cameras specifically for their optimum image quality and compactness which meet the company's production needs perfectly. The Sony HDC-P1s will be assembled on the 3D RIG - Total Rig Control II - and will feature alongside 8 OLED HDVF-EL75 viewfinders. The solution will be linked to Sony’s MPE-200 3D processing platform which can send real-time 3D signals to the correction/control/conversion tools creating a best-in-class live 3D production solution.

Microfilms' Nicolas Charuet states: "The technical teams need the powerful processor in the MPE-200 box so that they can detect the disparities between the two cameras. The correction parameters of these disparities are then recorded locally in the Microfilms RIG and are mechanically added again in real time".
