Oasis Television Uses Pixelutions JaleoTitling done for BAFTA award nominated drama. (May 28, 2004)
David I. Smith at Oasis Television is responsible for creating the titles for the award winning drama, "Cambridge Spies", recently nominated for a BAFTA television craft award. The titles were devised using Jaleo at Oasis Television's Jaleo editing suite. Based on true events that shocked a nation in the 1930s, "Cambridge Spies" tells the tale of four over privileged Cambridge University students who betrayed their country by becoming spies for Russia. They become notorious for being the most devastatingly successful spies in the history of modern intelligence. Directed by Tim Fywell and written by Peter Moffat, the Drama was broadcast on BBC 2.
"The idea behind any title sequence is to try to capture the mood of the programme. This was achieved by slowly resolving the images in Jaleo of the four main characters out of the secret code that the "Cambridge" spies had developed for sending out their coded messages." enthuses David Smith, Director at Oasis Television. "Jaleo is a powerful system and the flexibility of Jaleo allowed me more time and creative freedom to produce a BAFTA nominated piece!" Jaleo delivers the highest quality images by working in YUV colour space and eliminates the need for unnecessary (RGB) colour space conversions. This prevents the introduction of unwanted artifacts that hinder image quality and digital video performance. JALEO delivers non compressed, multi stream 601 or single stream HDTV with real time effects, combining the speed of traditional post production technologies with the flexibility and performance of a high- end digital production system. JALEO is resolution independent and works with film resolutions at variable frame rates, including IMAX to 48fps. JALEO was designed by production people for production people.
Jaleo's features include HDTV format compliant (resolution independent), Non-compressed video in real time, Full featured editing (view real time video and effects without rendering), Compositing (unlimited compositing layers), Real-time effects, Sophisticated Keying, Multilayer DVEs, Warping and Morphing, Motion Tracking, Rotopaint , Works in YUV color space (no RGB color space conversions) and it works with unlimited audio channels
