Mansion Mobile Television: Keeping Business in Focus with Grass Valley HD Cameras Case Study (CAM-4079M) File size: 765.8 KB, posted Jun 20 2012 Any mobile production services company will tell you that the quality of the images they produce on-site for their clients is their virtual calling card for recurring business. When compared to the competition—which is becoming more fierce all the time—you are only as good as your last project and how it looks on the screen. That's why the team at Mansion Mobile Television, a production company located in Branson, Missouri, was so careful when picking the cameras they would use for the literally hundreds of live sports and entertainment events they complete each year across the entire Midwest US and other regions.
Mansion Mobile chose Grass Valley® LDK 8000 Elite WorldCam cameras and Canon HD lenses for their arsenal for three simple—but very practical—reasons: the image quality the cameras produce, their ability to natively shoot in different HD formats, and their durability. Mansion Mobile could be shooting a 720p project for Fox Sports one day, and a 1080i project for CBS Sports the next. The LDK 8000 Elite WorldCam gives the company the confidence of knowing that their investment is sound and secure.
The ESC 2011 was produced and broadcast in high-definition 1080i with 5.1 surround sound and two-channel stereo. A key role in the production of the ESC 2011 were four Grass Valley® LDK 8000 Elite cameras with wireless adapters.
Talkback Thames: Arresting Performance from HD Cameras Case Study (CAM-4058M-2) File size: 698.0 KB, posted Jan 27 2011 The Bill is a long-running and very popular police procedural drama produced by Talkback Thames for the UK's ITV network. Early in 2009 the decision was made to change the requirement to a weekly, one hour high-definition drama for a 9:00 pm/21.00 timeslot. That called for Talkback Thames to re-equip its production capabilities to upgrade to HD, and as part of that they looked at new cameras.
One of the characteristics of the way The Bill worked in SD was that Talkback Thames used system cameras recording to separate devices, rather than the camcorders that might typically be used for drama. Having looked carefully at all the options available as they moved to HD, Talkback Thames decided to maintain the same approach, and placed an order for five Grass Valley® LDK 8000 Elite cameras, which record onto the Panasonic P2 format.
