root6 Prepares Emap TV For HD And Adds ContentAgent-XRPost production upgrade for eight interactive digital music channels (September 09, 2005)
To serve its eight interactive digital music channels, Emap Performance TV has thriving in-house production and post-production facilities. These have just been significantly upgraded by root6, which has re-equipped four edit suites with Avid Adrenalines, installed Avid Xpress Pro with Mojo as a desktop system for production, and supplied ContentAgent-XR to save time and money on client deliverables.
As well as music videos, Emaps TV channels feature a host of weekly chart-based programmes such as Box Breakers, as well as in-depth specials and news reporting from events such as the Q Awards, Download and The Brits.
Head of Post Production Siobhan Donnelly explains, ?Primarily we wanted to upgrade to gain extra functionality and prepare for the arrival of HD, but also because we plan to make the facility available commercially. root6 handled the original project here and we were happy to invite them back. The new installation was overseen by Technical Production Manager Neil Tindal and Senior Editor Max Burgess.
Emap TV also has a large creative team making client promos and commercials for broadcast across all channels including terrestrial. Previously this work had been dubbed onto VHS as part of the review and approval procedure. Now, thanks to ContentAgent-XR, copies of client material are transcoded into any required format and delivered, by email, ftp or DVD.
?ContentAgent saves time and money, affirms Donnelly. ?No tapes, no couriers and instant turn-around for our clients.
