Cheltenham Literature Festival Powered by Blackmagic Design

PostSat Nov 21, 2020 1:30 am

Blackmagic Design today announced that a multicam live production workflow, built around Blackmagic URSA Broadcast, was used to deliver simultaneous events across the ten days of the annual Cheltenham Literature Festival.

Bubble Production enabled the internationally renowned festival to go ahead in a digital format for the first time in its 71 year history. Graham Essenhigh, managing director at Bubble begins, “Having successfully delivered more than 300 events online for the Hay Festival earlier in the year, the challenge of Cheltenham was brought to us. The biggest difference on this occasion was that we would be back on site, delivering to screens in venue as well as to a digital audience.”

Each of the three venues were equipped with three Blackmagic URSA Broadcast cameras and one Micro Studio Camera 4K, all paired with B4 Fujinon HD lenses. “Minimizing cable runs due to distance was important to us, and we utilized Teranex Mini Quad SDI to 12G-SDI and Teranex Mini 12G-SDI to Quad SDI converters as a multiplex system,” explains Graham.
