CAMERON | PACE Group Brings “Glee: The 3D Concert Movie” to Life

CPG used a Grass Valley Kayenne™ Video Production Center switcher during the recording

Trend-creating 3D technology and production services firm, CAMERON | PACE Group (CPG), utilized  Grass Valley™ switcher technology to  create a live line cut (1st pre edit) of the live action filled production of “Glee Live! In Concert!” for Twentieth Century Fox Television and Twentieth Century Fox Film's co-production of the "GLEE: THE 3D CONCERT MOVIE” scheduled to hit theaters on August 12.

CPG used a Grass Valley Kayenne™ Video Production Center switcher during the recording of the “GLEE: THE 3D CONCERT MOVIE” production.

Grass Valley also supported CPG with on-site technical training and full event support to assure that the production crew was fully up to speed on the Kayenne, newly introduced into the state-of-the-art, fully integrated CPG   mobile workflow unit, FUSION 3D Mobile Unit One. Also included in the CPG mobile unit is a Grass Valley K2 Dyno™ Replay System for multichannel 3D playback.

“We strive for the highest 3D quality in every production in order to tell the story in the best way possible, and the Grass Valley Kayenne gave us that for 'Glee',” said Vince Pace, Co-Chairman and CEO of CAMERON | PACE Group.

“Using the Grass Valley Kayenne during the recording of “GLEE: THE 3D CONCERT MOVIE” was simple and easy,” said Bruno Brunelle, 3D Engineer of CAMERON | PACE Group. “Kayenne gave us the tools needed to record the energy and flow of the live performance and bring to the ‘Gleeks’ (‘Glee fans’) the rich 3D experience they have come to expect from CAMERON | PACE Group.”


“The faith that CAMERON | PACE Group placed in Grass Valley technologies only reinforces our belief that specialty 3D-only equipment is not necessary for high-end 3D television and theatrical productions,” said Jeff Rosica, Executive Vice President of Grass Valley. “Production companies the world over have been and are continuing to produce 3D content with multiformat Grass Valley equipment, and we're proud to support them in their role.”

Twentieth Century Fox will release "Glee Live! 3D!" — for a special limited two-week engagement —in theaters everywhere on August 12, 2011. Kevin Tancharoen (“Fame,” “Mortal Kombat: Legacy” series) directed the film.
