United Keeps The Grand Tour 4K-Aligned with Leader LV5490

Hilversum-based video systems specialist United has chosen Leader's LV5490 as the test and measurement core of a 4K ultra-high-definition flyaway production system for Amazon Prime's new motoring television series, The Grand Tour. The show reunites presenters Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May. An initial 36 episodes are being produced for release on Amazon Prime. The LV5490 was purchased via Leader's channel partner Fofic BV, based at Diemen near Amsterdam.

"This assignment required a portable high-end solution that is lightweight but also fulfills the requirements of Amazon Prime," explains Bolke Burnaby Lautier, United's manager of special projects. "The new flyaway consists of a camera and a recording system plus a comprehensive audio setup. The cameras yield wide-colour-space 4K UHD files including proxies which can be edited immediately."

NewTek release NEW IP Series of products

The IP Series is built around the same fantastic technology and core engine but now has more flexible input and output options.  Newtek have introduced new hardware to accompany the new platform with input and output modules.  These have 4 x 3G-SDI inputs that turn the signal into NDI ( IP ), with an output module with a similar interface.

The New control surface for the IP series is a 4-stripe Control Panel combining the comprehensive functionality, precision controls, and premium hardware mechanics that people have become custom to with Newtek.  The systems includes 8 x M/E’s, 72 x crosspoints per stripe, 4 x Multimode T-Bars, 2 x Multi-mode joysticks for PTZ camera control or Media Player shuttle.

With remote production becoming more of an interest for sports, news and even entertainment, this new production tool gives production companies, OB’s, Broadcasters and even facilities companies new options for new age production.
