Dixon Sports Uses Blackmagic Design UltraStudio 4K

PostThu Jul 13, 2017 5:32 pm

Blackmagic Design announced today that its UltraStudio 4K capture and playback devices are being used by Dixon Sports as part of their Media Portal next-generation video server. The Dixon Media Portal was built around the UltraStudio 4K to meet the needs of one of the biggest sports broadcasters in the world, the WWE. The Media Portal’s affordable modular design and flexible architecture remove the constraints of previous first-generation servers to enable workflows that were previously impossible.

Dixon Sports Computing is the world leader in logging and managing sports video, and its products are used by sports broadcasters and organizations, including Fox Sports, PGA TOUR Entertainment, DirecTV, MSG Network, TVG and SKY New Zealand. Their recently launched Media Portal, by playing directly from and recording directly to editing storage systems such as Avid ISIS, replaces expensive first-generation servers that have been traditionally used for capture and playback. This eliminates transfer times, advanced planning about what needs to moved and when and the reliance on expensive servers and their proprietary storage. To provide capture and playback features, Dixon Sports uses Blackmagic Design’s UltraStudio 4K.

UltraStudio 4K provides the Media Portal with rack mount Thunderbolt or Thunderbolt 2 based capture and playback, which includes 4:4:4 and dual channel 3D stereoscopic, Ultra HD and 4K capture and playback. UltraStudio 4K also comes with the latest high performance 6G and 12G-SDI video technology, and are perfect for equipment racks, post production suites or flyaway kits. The combination of UltraStudio 4K and Media Portal products give customers the ability to quickly work with and manage the incredible amount of video required for sports broadcasting.
