Eye(height) on the prize: SIS LIVE covers Oxford/Cambridge boat race
SIS LIVE selected Eyeheight CC-2M colour correctors for use during coverage of this year’s Oxford & Cambridge University Boat Race, which took place on Sunday 31 March. Installed in one of several SIS LIVE fleet vehicles at the event, the CC-2M received live high-definition video from mobile cameras and allowed rapid adjustment of colour balance to match feeds from other cameras positioned along the course.
“Eyeheight colour correctors have contributed to many successful outside broadcasts as well as in studio productions, video post and telecine grading,” comments Eyeheight sales director Martin Moore. “SIS LIVE has used them at a variety of major events including the 2012 Grand National, the London Marathon and the Six Nations rugby tournament.”
The CC-2M colour corrector is an auto-sensing SD and HD system allowing independent real-time adjustment of red, green and blue component levels, master gain, lift, gamma and hue. A preview output provides a configurable split screen showing processed and unprocessed picture. The CC-2M has a dedicated control panel which operates over Eyeheight’s I-Bus network. This enables each panel to control up to six plug-in modular colour correction cards in a single-rack-unit smart-chassis with easy channel switching. Up to eight panels can be networked. The system also includes a maintenance mode to assist installation.
