Blackmagic Design has established itself as a high quality innovative brand over the years. They have such an interesting product line from the rock solid I/O options to the simple to use ATEM studio production switchers.
This year at IBC their big announcement was for the Ultimatte 12.
Ultimatte has been around a long time (over 40 years) but Blackmagic acquired the company over a year ago and has been hard at work to achieve this new product which meets the customers expectations both on a technology and a cost level.
Tyrell recently completed the installation of a complete web-broadcast studio, which enabled the client to use Green Screen techniques for making dynamic business presentations from an on-campus location.
This included a bespoke built media cabinet, cameras, lights and green screen. Training was also required for staff onsite and the facility can Livestream to YouTube, Facebook and Periscope.
This innovative application of multi-media applications was entirely researched, built and delivered in-house by Tyrell.
Business is moving to video to communicate, both internally and externally, because video is increasingly becoming more cost effective and this trend is set to continue.
Until recently this kind of studio facility was only in the realms of broadcast TV stations but Corporates can now access their own on-campus Webcast TV Studios for their business development in the digital age.
The question is where do they turn to for advice and consultation on how to implement the build for this crucial aspect of their corporate future?
