MUTV is available on Sky and Virgin Media in the UK

MUTV – which is dedicated to coverage of the one of the world’s best known football clubs – has made the purchase for two reasons. The first is to improve the on-air look of the channel; the second is as part of a gradual move to a file-based workflow.

“We have successfully used an earlier version of Clarity for a long time now but we wanted to be able to be able to extend and improve our use of graphics and also to be able to export files from the unit for later editing in Final Cut Pro as part of the move to a file-based workflow. The Clarity 3000 unit can of course do this cost-effectively as well as operating as a live gallery caption generator. We are very happy with the result and the service from Pixel Power,” explains Tony Baldwin-Lewis, Head of Operations, MUTV.
