Telegenic joins SVG Europe as OB/SI Sponsor
Sports Video Group Europe is delighted to announce that Telegenic has joined as an OB/SI Sponsor. Over three decades Telegenic has established a reputation for excellence of quality and service in delivering failsafe outside broadcasts of any size and complexity. The company employs a large full time staff of talented and professional crew, many of whom have been involved in the design of its trucks and therefore have a clinical understanding of their operation. The core staff is supported by a number of key freelance personnel who are able to guarantee units and do so on a regular basis.
Telegenic’s extensive fleet is equipped with the most advanced technology available for HD, 3D and 4K production of the biggest sports, entertainment, music and State events. Since commissioning the UK’s first HD vehicle in 2001, launching the world’s first 3DTV mobile unit in 2010 and in 2013, marking a milestone in producing the world’s first live 4K workflow trial, Telegenic has continually demonstrated vision and ability to adopt and build cutting-edge facilities in support of groundbreaking broadcast techniques backed by a fully trained team.
Telegenic’s first class facilities are designed in-house to handle any broadcast format, to adapt to any location and to anticipate and lead the market in new technology. Having played a key role in the test transmissions and launch of BSkyB’s HD service in 2006, and provided the equipment and expertise for the world’s first live 3D broadcast in 2009, it has consistently demonstrated the ability and infrastructure to support new ventures.
The company’s latest groundbreaking super truck T25 has the necessary infrastructure to support 4K, a next generation format for live cinema events, live music broadcasts, TV sports coverage, drama production and, eventually, domestic TV. For the truck, Telegenic invested in 14 Sony HDC-4300 4K/HD live production system cameras. Each of the cameras has been installed in the company’s T25 4K outside broadcast vehicle, after first being used to capture HD footage of the 2015 Rugby World Cup.
“We’ve always taken pride in harnessing the best technology available to deliver an outstanding quality of broadcasts,” commented Sean Mulhern, Telegenic director of engineering at IBC2015. “Having worked with Sony on 4K sports production since the Confederations Cup in 2013, we knew that the company’s experience and technology is unrivalled when it comes to ultra high definition. Bearing in mind the numerous projects with varied requirements which the new cameras will be used for, the flexibility of shooting in both 4K and HD made the HDC-4300 the natural choice for us.”
