SVG: Dome Productions Expands Commitment to 4K/ UHD in Canada
The rise of High-Definition Broadcasting in sports has grown to great proportions in recent years. The demand for fast, universal and high quality sports content has created a need for broadcast units to perform various tasks from one trailer, when in the past, these functions, conversions and other tasks were spread between multiple trailers.
“When we were asked to come up with the solution to produce 4K, we realized that 4K has to be a single truck unit. We continue to do the side-by-side, [and we had] to figure that out,” says Mary Ellen Carlyle, SVP/GM, Dome Productions. “The team figured that out, and, on July 1, they put out a single solution. One [television partner] is taking a 4K feed directly and downconverting to HD at their plant. The other one’s downconverting it at the truck, and we’re spitting out 4K and HD. Our challenge was to give them the tools that they need to produce in the way that they always had produced, without losing the integrity of the HD show.”
