FRANCE TÉLÉVISIONS MOVES TO FAIRLIGHT FOR NEWSROOMS Blackmagic Design


BY DAVID FOX


France Télévisions has upgraded its audio and video post production capabilities with Fairlight-based digital audio workstations. With the support of Paris-based reseller Magic Hour, the broadcaster has implemented 31 Blackmagic Design Fairlight Advanced consoles in two-bay chassis systems across 24 regional newsroom hubs across France. According to Gregory Vital, head of engineering and technical services, France Télévisions, the requirements


Blackmagic’s modular Fairlight-based DAW confi gured in a two-bay system


were “to guarantee on-air continuity for our 24 newsrooms with a solution that would ensure the production of our regional broadcast news in a fl uid and rapid manner”.


The system had to offer a


future-proof audio and video toolset while seamlessly integrating with the broadcasters’ existing media and PAM pipelines across its entire news operation.


“Fairlight met all of our


immediate requirements while also supporting our need to expand into 4K workfl ows in the future. Access to DaVinci Resolve’s API also ensured we could quickly interface Fairlight with our existing systems and


TELESTREAM CELEBRATES 20 YEARS OF TRANSCODING WITH JUMP TO LIGHTSPEED


MANAGE Telestream BY DAVID FOX


The latest Lightspeed Live Capture platform now supports 12G and ST-2110, aiding the transition to IP-based workfl ows. Lightspeed Live Capture


offers scalable, automated, multichannel IP and SDI capture for ingesting live or tape-based media directly into production, post-production and broadcast workfl ows. It processes video in 16-bit space to preserve source quality and records in a wide

variety of mezzanine fi le formats for delivery to local shared storage, SAN, NAS, object storage (S3), FTP, Aspera and more.


In December 2001


Telestream introduced the industry’s fi rst enterprise class


video transcoding software: FlipFactory. Previously, encoders handled individual codecs, but the rapidly increasing number of codecs and formats meant automation was required. Since then it has built on this with Vantage, which added


intelligent decision-based workfl ow orchestration, and is now available on premises or in the cloud, and its Lightspeed servers. The latest Lightspeed is 4-5x faster than the fi rst models from 2012 and their improved operational effi ciency helps media companies reduce their carbon footprint.


Scott Matics, senior director


of product management at Telestream, said: “The move towards IP-based production workfl ows is gaining momentum and this development places Lightspeed Live Capture in the vanguard of live IP production scenarios.”


workfl ow automation, ensuring a smooth transition for our operators,” said Vital. Amandine Doucet, AV project manager, France Télévisions, was impressed by the Fairlight control surfaces. “They afforded our operators more direct access to essential features and controls such as EQ, for example,” she said. “This is crucial when working in a broadcast newsroom environment where speed to air is critical.” DaVinci Resolve was another factor in choosing Fairlight. “The integration of a modern and more open platform means we’ll have a greater choice of systems when we want to renew them, without being blocked by any incompatibility,” said Vital.


A compelling feature of Lightspeed Live Capture is its ability to seamlessly ingest content for use with Edit While Capture (frame- chase) workfl ows on popular NLEs, both on prem or in geographically dispersed locations.


“The ability for broadcasters and OTT service providers to live stream over IP at scale with equivalent resilience and effi ciency to linear broadcasts is becoming a critical business driver,” added Matics. “These new strategic enhancements to LightSpeed Live Capture highlight our efforts to support customer needs with orchestrated IP workfl ows within larger content delivery ecosystems.”
