ATG Broadcast to create production village for BBC Broadcast

One of Europe's leading systems integrators, ATG Broadcast, has been selected to design and build a fully digital production village within BBC Broadcast's new Broadcast Centre.
The village will enable the creative team to post-produce high quality television graphics and on-air promotions on-site quickly and cost-effectively. The integrated digital production village, due to open in January 2004, will consist of 35 browse stations, six self-operating edit suites, six craft edit suites, a captioning suite, two dubbing suites and two voice-over booths. Ingest stations located around the building use Omnibus Ingest clients to digitise all required media into multiple Quantel sQ Servers.
Quantel-generated proxy copies of the digitised content are then accessible from the QCut Browse and edit stations where projects can be completed to a simple level. Complex editing or finishing of simple projects can be achieved in either six QEdit self-op edit suites or six craft QEdit suites. Finished edits are exported to the AMS Neve dubbing suites as an AAF audio file with Quicktime video proxy, and a Gallery Virtual VTR under AMS Neve control provides proxy replay.
Alan Pimm, ATG Broadcast Sales Director, said: "The production village at the Broadcast Centre represents the very latest in television production technology and we are delighted to have been chosen for this project. We have already piloted much of the technology with BBC Broadcast in their current location in order to be ready to start fit-out at the Broadcast Centre this month."
