Eyeheight kit to colour correct UK’s Grand National
First of no doubt several stories in advance of the big race: SIS LIVE has chosen an Eyeheight canalettoMDi multistandard colour corrector for use during coverage of the 2012 Grand National on 14 April.
Installed in one of several vehicles which will be on site from the SIS LIVE fleet, the canalettoMDi will receive live high-definition video of the event from a gyro-stabilised camera aboard a helicopter. It will allow fast adjustment of colour balance to match feeds from other cameras positioned along the course.
“Eyeheight colour correctors have contributed to successful coverage of many outside broadcast events as well as in studio productions, video post and telecine grading,” comments Eyeheight Sales Director, Martin Moore. “Four canalettoMDi units were deployed by SIS LIVE during outside broadcast coverage of the Six Nations rugby tournament at Murrayfield and Twickenham. The canalettoMDi system was also used by SIS LIVE during the 30th London Marathon to grade video from cameras on two motorcycles and two helicopters tracking the run.”
