Lightworks Editing


It is said that “Variety is the Spice of Life” and the Lightworks Editing systems have been very spicey recently.
The new season of the English Football Premiere League will once again see Perform Media Services Ltd. bringing their Lightworks “Softworks” editing systems into action.
Perform have the contract to provide in match “near live” and delayed highlights of the English Premier League football for 3 seasons, for use by over 50 global Internet and mobile licensees. The “near live” fast turnaround requires really quick editing of the material, and this is where the Lightworks Softworks systems come into play. From Match feeds, Perform needs to be able to quickly create a number of differently encoded clips of the same event for broadcasting to a range of devices/applications.
Geevs Servers are used for the multichannel ingest and virtual highlight sub-clips are created which can be loaded by the Softworks Editors for Voice Over and further editing.
As a complete contrast, Henry Stein has been using his Lightworks Alacrity to edit material for pop promos, events, etc. for many, many famous Pop Stars. These have included the latest Oasis release (and many of their previous releases & events) and Henry’s work also includes editing material for the Led Zeppelin’ reunion concert - “The House that Ahmed built” as a tribute to Ahmed Ertegun, Rod Stewart tour, Keane live DVD and Sir Paul McCartney, including “The McCartney Years” DVDs.
Bringing us right up to date, and with yet another challenging application, Lightworks editing systems were used to edit the film, Mamma Mia!. To celebrate this event there is to be a Prize Draw at the end of September 2008 and any one who has purchased a Lightworks or Gee Broadcast product since 24 July 2008, will be entered into this Draw to win a stay in a superb Villa on the island of Skiathos – one of the islands used for the filming of Mamma Mia! Henry Stein has kindly agreed to do the draw and there are many people hoping that they will be the lucky ones – but there is still time for more to enter by making their purchase before the end of September!!
Lightworks comes in various flavours :
Softworks - Software only for fully featured HD & SD editing – for PC or Laptop
Softworks LE - As Softworks but with more limited effects
Alacrity MR+ - HD & SD Real Time Editing systems, off line or on line for video & film

Original KVM or KVM over IP
Jochen Bauer Will the technology used in broadcasting solely consist of IP devices? For years, IP has been entering all areas of life. Especially control room applications as they are typically deployed in broadcasting benefit from the IP revolution in many ways. But an “IP-only broadcast world” is not yet here. Nevertheless, the trend clearly moves towards IP transmission, even though a large part of content production still uses traditional transmission paths. And therefore we continue to live in a hybrid world, using both original and IP-based technology. KVM experts Guntermann und Drunck still rely on both original KVM and KVM-over-IP™ to be able to offer their customers the best of both worlds.

IP Technology for Broadcast Audio Routing Systems
Tom Knowles As the AoIP debate continues to confuse and delight in equal measure, what is clear is different scenarios require specific solutions. So is there a solution that encompasses open standards and existing proven AoIP technologies to the benefit of all?

The University of the Third Age
Bernard Newnham Here's a cliché - "We all get to be old one day - if we're lucky". There comes a point when things like "....mastered in Dolby Vision Domestic and SDR Rec 709....." become just a touch unimportant (and actually I never really understood that stuff in the first place). I retired for the third time last year - BBC producer, and before that cameraman, then freelance producer, trainer, do-your-own camera, sound, editor, blah blah, then 11 years university teaching. I did my bit - never a BAFTA, but certainly the first into a good few things - but it all has to come to an end sometime.

The Future of Broadcast Connectivity
Jamie Adkin The use of KVM equipment has been essential to meet the evolving needs of the broadcast industry for many years. Over that time, many in the industry have recognised the importance of using IP-enabled KVM to break down technological barriers and enable real-time access to visuals wherever and whenever they’re needed. These components are vital parts in live production environments in particular.

Keeping Pace with the Content Revolution
Kevin Fitzgerald These are uniquely challenging times for broadcasters and their technical teams. Not only are they having to negotiate the move to IP-based infrastructures and the introduction of new formats and techniques such as 4K and HDR, they are also having to generate more content than ever before to support OTT and web services as well as traditional linear broadcast.
