Creative Grading Technical Brief (TB-PUB-3-0810A-EN) File size: 1.4 MB, posted Apr 13 2022 The capture of high-quality camera images during live conditions can be very demanding. Whether indoors or out, the difficulties of adapting to the limitations of natural or artificial lighting and responding to rapid lighting changes are compounded by the artistic choices of a camera look, matching ambient or branded coloring, producing in multiple video formats, and of course satisfying unpredictable customer expectations all under high-pressure time constraints.
Using Creative Grading for Distributed Production Technical Brief (TB-PUB-2-0952A-EN) File size: 1.2 MB, posted Oct 19 2020 Camera shaders are a critical part of maintaining picture quality during the constantly changing conditions of a multicamera live production.

The Impact of New Production Formats and Workflows to Camera Control Whitepaper by Klaus Weber, Principal, Camera Solutions and Technology, (GVB-2-0608A-EN-WP) File size: 1.2 MB, posted May 28 2019 Today, camera control solutions in live broadcast productions are mainly used to adapt the camera's capabilities to a given light situation, and to achieve a certain "look" and style of the images. New formats such as high dynamic range (HDR), wide color gamut (WCG), 4K UHD, IP and simultaneous HDR/SDR or HD/4K UHD operations, require more agile controls. Now with more features to be controlled, managing the various settings becomes very difficult. A broadcast camera control solution that leverages the developments from grading applications used in post-production and other widely used image control applications, such as Photoshop, will benefit from new ideas and the new talents grown with these solutions. It's time for a change! This paper will explain the background of today's camera control solutions and show, based on extensive customer feedback, how it should develop in the future.
