Telegenic Trial Axon 4K Systems In Brazil

News Image
Working with Sony to develop U-HD, Telegenic's new OB unit T25 was sent to Brazil to trial the process and associated technology for acquiring and delivering live 4K content.
The trials took place at the Estadio Mineiro in Belo Horizonte, one of six stadiums used for the FIFA Confederations Cup Brazil 2013.
The matches are not planned for screening to an external audience as the main focus of the trials was to test the process and associated technology required for shooting sport in U-HD, enabling Sony and FIFA in partnership with Telegenic to assess the practicality of bringing 4K broadcasts to future sporting events.
Telegenic approached their long standing partner Axon Digital Design to develop new interfaces necessary for 4K production.
Successful capture of 4K pictures requires up and down converters to complement Telegenic’s existing range of Axon interfaces.
Axon developers set to work creating hardware and software for a quad HD converter. Feedback showed some tweaking was required and Axon made the necessary changes that allowed Telegenic to deploy, test the system and feedback the results to the development team.
"Although there is still some work needed before a full release is ready the hardware and software are done," a statement said.
"It is situations like this that illustrate Axon’s dedication to innovation and place Axon firmly at the heart of broadcast."
