UK X Factor Tour Uses Blackmagic Live Production Workflow

PostFri Mar 23, 2018 1:54 pm

Blackmagic Design today announced that IMAG projection for the 2018 X Factor live arena tour was produced with a PPU, built around an ATEM 2 M/E Production Studio 4K with ATEM 2 M/E Broadcast Panel. Live acquisition was delivered by an HD multicam set up which included the URSA Broadcast.

The tour, produced by live specialist, PRG XL Video, took the talent show’s winners to 15 cities across the UK in just three weeks. Vis a Vis Video’s Stuart Merser led on all video production for the tour and collaborated with X Factor’s studio director, Diccon Ramsey, to ensure the live set up matched the format and feel of the popular television series.

“The live set up is similar to the Saturday night show, with a presenter and acts performing for the audience’s vote each night, so Diccon was responsible for editorial consistency between broadcast and arena content,” explains Stuart. “We fed live camera signals, prerecorded content of each contestant’s journey, and the iconic X Factor graphics into the switcher, with Diccon at the helm on the ATEM panel, delivering a seamless production every night.”
