ATG upgrade four BBC studios

ATG Broadcast has completed a contract to re-equip BBC Elstree Studios A, B and C which are now being used to originate four weekly episodes of EastEnders.
The contract also includes enhancements to Studio D where EastEnders was formerly produced and which is now being equipped for a childrens magazine programme.
The refurbishment is part of the BBC's continuing transition to digital technology and includes a four-seat Custom Consoles production control room desk, four new Thomson LDK100 cameras, a Thomson DD-35 vision switcher and a Yamaha DM2000 digital audio mixer. Serial digital routing is via a new Quartz Q6400SV 64 x 64 (32 x 32 populated) matrix with six CP3201 panels and two XY panels. Also included in the contract are an Eyeheight SQ-500 aspect ratio converter, a For-A DCC-700 digital colour corrector, Leitch serial digital video interfaces and Vistek audio distribution amplifiers. Four Ikegami grade 1 and 2 picture monitors have been installed plus 12 JVC grade 3 monitors together with a For-A PAL quad picture splitter.
Dave Whitaker, ATG Broadcast Projects Manager comments: "We were given a four week window for Studios A, B & C and two weeks for Studio D, making this one of the fastest broadcast industry contracts of its size ever undertaken. The entire operation went according to plan which is a tribute both to the BBC and to the manufacturers with whom we worked."
