Sports Solutions white paper for NewTek LatAm/EMEA

Sports Solutions white paper for NewTek LatAm/EMEA

I wrote a new white paper for NewTek Latin America, and Europe/Middle East/Africa is now requesting an English translation.

By Allan Tépper | January 30, 2015

After the great popularity of the NewTek New Scopes white paper I published for NewTek US, the Latin American department then contracted me to translate/localize it for its own region. Later, the NewTek Latin American division requested a series of other white papers, starting with the NewTek Sports Solutions white paper. Despite its rather narrow title, this white paper will also be quite valuable for anybody planning a live multicamera video system. Shortly thereafter, the NewTek EMEA (Europe, the Middle East and Africa) division requested an English translation/localization. Ahead you’ll find the table of contents and more.

In Guatemala, Shogun reverses 29.97PsF pulldown for 8-camera live-switched show via Datavideo HS2800

Sports Solutions white paper for NewTek LatAm/EMEA

Thanks to the reverse telecine feature in the Shogun and other Átomos recorders, Staff/HDTV got its wish.

By Allan Tépper | January 27, 2015

Staff/HDTV in Guatemala really wanted to record pure progressive 1080/29.97p for its multi-camera TV shoots. They strongly considered NewTek’s TriCaster lineup, but TriCaster didn’t offer any option with 8 HD-SDI inputs in their desired price range, so instead they chose Datavideo’s HS2800 mobile studio, which starts with 8 HD-SDI inputs and is expandable to 12. The initial problem was that the SE–2800 contained in the HS2800 package only handles interlaced 1080i, but a workflow I previously published solved the problem and allowed Staff/HDTV to have their cake and eat it too. Details ahead.
