Rain or Shine, The University of Portland's Multimedia Team Gets the Shot with Blackmagic Design
Building a brand is important for any business regardless of the industry, and advertising and marketing campaigns are some of the main ways to do so. In addition to traditional methods, such as print ads and television commercials, today it's essential to leverage social media, especially when your target audience is one of the biggest consumers of the medium. The University of Portland was quick to realize this, and created its own in house multimedia team, in conjunction with its marketing department, which handles all television commercial, online video and social media marketing campaigns. Headed by photojournalist and videographer Jeff Kennel, what makes this team unique is that it produces high quality work just as good as many professional agencies and production companies, but at a fraction of the cost and twice the speed.

AJA KONA LHe Plus and AJA Control Room Drive Capitol Television Broadcasts
AJA KONA LHe Plus and AJA Control Room Drive Capitol Television Broadcasts
Eight Sony HDC-P1 HD cameras and three Sony BRCH900 robotic cameras send feeds to a Ross Video Carbonite production switcher and through a Ross Video router, where it's offloaded to any one of five playback and record servers, which are outfitted with AJA KONA LHe Plus I/O cards and AJA Control Room software. The SDI signal is then sent to the KONA LHe card within and back through the router, and all converted or compressed data is stored on a custom-built 36 TB RAID system. Telestream's Episode Engine software converts the DVCPro HD output of the KONA cards to H.264 or MPEG-2 for the on-air server. Material is on LTO tape. SAN sharing program Metasan allows all five playback and control servers to communicate with the storage. A sixth server houses the RAID. Read More
