Fabelaktiv Chooses Sony Technology for HD Studio Upgrade
The HD upgrade includes delivery of a number of the latest cameras from the Sony HDC-2500 line-up supplemented by HDC-P1 cameras. In addition, Fabelaktiv has selected the Sony MVS vision mixer complemented by Sony displays and award winning Sony Trimaster EL OLED products. The full HD solution will also include the installation of a LSB VSM studio control system.
As part of the HD studio upgrade, Fabelaktiv has also chosen to replace its current analogue wireless microphone system with the Sony DWX Digital Wireless Solution. The technology is compatible with Fabelaktiv’s existing XDCAM HD 4:2:2 EFP digital wireless cameras.
“We are very excited about this HD upgrade. Based on previous experience with Sony’s technology, we are certain we will get future proof studio facilities that allow us to continue to produce high quality TV productions in the future,” says Kjetil Aalerud, head of the technical department at Fabelaktiv.
The design, project management and delivery will be handled by the Live Production Solutions Team based in Basingstoke, UK. The HD upgrade will be completed in May/June 2012.
“Fabelaktiv has been a customer of Sony for many years. We are delighted to be chosen as its preferred technology partner for the upgrade to HD. Building on 30 years of technical advancement in live production, we are certain that Fabelaktiv will achieve future proof studio facilities by choosing Sony,” says Mick Sheehan, product manager, Sony Norway.
