TVTs end-to-end services will ensure the highest quality video is delivered across all 11 of UKTV consumer brands, including Dave, Gold, Really, Good Food, Alibi, Yesterday and UKTVPlay (UKTVs on demand TV platform).


The new agreement is based on a 5-year relationship with UKTV and will see TVT deliver a complete media management service for the broadcaster.

This will give UKTV’s Operations department complete tracking of all programmes throughout the whole media management process. ContentSelect will also be used to provide early views of master assets for UKTV in house and for 3rd party creative teams working on promo production.


We are delighted to have extended our contract with TVT for the next five years, as we really rely on the media management services they provide us, said Sinead Greenaway, Director of Operations and Technology, UKTV.

Furthermore, TVT will make the entire broadcast archive available for permissioned users to view via a branded portal app, giving UKTV management a secure portable library, accessible on mobiles and tablets anywhere.

Tedial Evolution takes center stage in Vienna at FIAT/IFTA 2015

Malaga, Spain – 30th September, 2015Tedial, the leading independent MAM technology solutions specialist, is showcasing its award-winning enhanced Media IT platform Tedial™ Evolution, at the FIAT/IFTA 2015 World Conference in Vienna. The event, which takes place from 7th to 10th October 2015, provides an international forum for the exchange of knowledge and experience between its members to promote the study of topics relevant to the development and use of audio visual archives and libraries.


Tedial™ Evolution, winner of TVB Europe’s IBC 2015 Best of Show Award and IABM’s Game Changer Award at NAB 2015, enables multi-site, multi-platform delivery, media business reporting and much more, providing international broadcasters and global media companies with next-generation Media IT tools. Tedial™ Evolution significantly extends MAM functionality providing new services to surf/explore archives and improved integration between archive and workflow engines to reinforce a collaborative environment.


“Smart media professionals around the globe are now demanding more benefits from the business of media management,” explains Esther Mesas, Tedial’s Chief Operations Officer. “They realize that the MAM of today needs to be so much more than the simple library and associated task menu of yesterday and that perfect media management requires exceptionally well-integrated IT architecture. Smart Media professionals want a MAM that applies IT technology to broadcast and media, maximizing the capabilities of their modern facilities. FIAT/IFTA is a very important platform for Tedial and we look forward to explaining how Tedial™ Evolution can assist broadcasters and global media companies with their archive and preservation requirements.”


Discover the new features of Tedial™ Evolution at FIAT/IFTA 2015



Tedial™ Evolution offers a completely new user experience designed to speed both manual and automated workflows. Built on Tedial’s solid, tried and trusted MAM platform, the new HTML5 user interface keeps frequently used tools on the screen for improved performance. True multiscreen (smartphone, tablet, etc.) and multi-platform (IOS, Android, Windows, etc.) operations allow users to manage tasks, validate media or monitor workflows status from mobile devices. The interface is fully customizable for individual preferences or work assignments, including different metadata views and screen configurations, with an integrated activity monitor and unified view of archives, workflows and business processes. The new interface also features a configurable ”logging” board with shortcuts for actions and actors, specially designed for sports and live events. Inside the User interface is an improved media player with audio waveforms, thumbnails and locators displayed in the timeline.


NEW Search/Indexing Engine

The Search/Indexing engine has been extended to organize/search collections and other object related entities, enable the indexing of very large databases via shared indexes, and to automatically tag descriptive metadata based on scoring of texts using stop words. The system now autocompletes user keyword inputs and generates suggestions for every entry as it is typed. It offers new methods to surf the MAM through “departments” using an “Amazon.com style” facets category and/or group entities. The system can also auto-tag, relating assets based on most relevant tags.


True Object Relational Database

Harnessing the power of a true Object Relational Database, a new set of tools provides a service to manage group entities, a multi-level classification schema (collections, albums, series, projects, rights, delivery packages, etc.) based on dynamic, changing relations. Employing the power of a real Object Relational Database, entities are logged as assets, which can now be a repository for all shared information. Assets are categorized as members of multiple entities, according to the user’s needs.


Expanded Mediaset

All information related to an asset can be explored from the Mediaset view including metadata, media files, attached documents, logical versions, processing or delivery orders. Moreover, related assets (physical versions, promos, parts) and entities can be explored from the original master asset wherever they are located or associated. As part of Tedial’s evolution to support DAM operations, full audio support is now available in the basic MAM. Tedial™ Evolution offers tight Integration with rights management systems to ensure media is rights aware.


Extended Business Process Management Services

Business Process Management services have been extended to reinforce collaboration, allowing several users to work with the same asset. New collaborative processes can be defined using an extended library of foundation workflows and activities.


UHD support

Tedial provides efficient content management for UHD, managing multi-file formats (DPX), external audio tracks and HD proxy in a simple and intuitive way. UHD optimized workflows minimize media transfer in the network. Long-term archive management provides ultra-efficient storage management for all UHD footage, including master media that might not be required for delivery but must be saved for posterity.


Tedial™ Evolution Embraces IMF standard

Always adopting SMPTE and IT standards as the best way to address the need to future proof the development of world-class software tools, Tedial has implemented the IMF schema within its MAM and workflow systems, as well as the AMWA FIMS AS-11 specifications. Tedial supports the SPMTE standards of MXF, BXF and AXF and the BPMN 2.0 Notation standard for enhanced interoperability.


New Tiffen Steadicam M-1 looms large in Japan

Tokyo, Japan; 30th September 2015:  TOHO Studios, the legendary Tokyo production house responsible for the original Godzilla and its current remake, as well as Seven Samurai, directed by Akira Kurosawa, has purchased the new Tiffen Steadicam M-1 camera stabiliser for all its current and future feature projects.

Senior Cameraman Kosuke Yamada has been looking at the M-1 since its launch, and was further excited about bringing a rig to Japan after he completed the 6 Day SOA (Steadicam Operators Association) Classic workshop in the US with Jerry Holway and Steadicam’s inventor Garrett Brown. Assisting him on the language front during the workshop was Tiffen / Steadicam’s US sales manager Dan Ikeda, one of Tiffen’s senior workshop instructors.

Yamada-san’s experience as a cinematographer was gained well before the SOA workshop, with a 13 year camera assistant’s path at TOHO Studios leading four years ago to the top job as TOHO’s Cinematographer.

We asked why he had chosen the M-1:

“The first reason was its stability. When I used the M-1 for the first time at the SOA workshop, I felt a firm sense of stability that I had never felt before. No matter how much lighter cameras become, the quality of the image largely depends on its stability in use.”
 "The M-1 can accommodate various shooting styles and equipment, and I think this is perhaps the biggest strength of it, but also very important is the ease with which you can achieve dynamic balance and smoothness of the gimbal.”

“A further reason was the modular design.  Unlike the USA, it is difficult for us to customize our rigs here in Japan as we often do not have enough information or equipment,  but with the M-1, we can upgrade it later if it is necessary. We are really impressed and happy with it.”

TOHO’s M-1 stabiliser is the first to be delivered to an Asia-based customer, beating Taiwan by a day. A recent showing of the M1 at Beijing BIRTV broadcast exhibition has already resulted in more systems going to Chinese broadcasters and film-makers.

All Tiffen M-1 systems in Asia have been ordered with the Fawcett Exovest. The supportive exoskeleton design of Exovest frees the chest from constraint by providing support on the hip and shoulder. The industry’s benchmark ISO-Elastic G70X arm completes the package, making M-1 the most advanced stabiliser in feature production.

The Steadicam M1 system was supplied by Tiffen’s Japanese distributor, Gin-ichi Corp, who boast Steadicam factory support training, offering local time-zone support to TOHO and broadcasters like NHK, CX Fuji and TV Asahi who have purchased Steadicam Archer 2, Zephyr and Shadow stabilisers over the last two years.


The M-1 Steadicam is the result of seven generations of experience, innovation, engineering skills, technological advances and invaluable feedback from the users. It’s the strongest and most robust Steadicam of all. The ‘M’ stands for modular, and this is the most modular Steadicam ever. You can start with the simplest post and upgrade later to the full rig.
The new M-1 camera stage is built around strength and high load precision with centre drives for superior rigidity with an optional vernier fingertip tilt adjustment – no tools needed.
The G-70x Elastic Arm is highly durable, performance adjustable, and offers smooth operation with a huge 70lb. lifting capacity and a 29″ boom range. You can move it from lowest to highest position with very little effort.

London, UK, September 24, 2015: Custom Consoles reports enthusiastic response from IBC2015 visitors to its new MediaPost monitor display system and the latest version of the EditOne desk.

"In terms of business confidence, this was one of our most successful IBC shows for many years," reports Custom Consoles Business Director Graham Buchanan. "The European mainland market is particularly healthy with many new broadcast projects planned for the coming 12 months. We also also spoke with many broadcasters from the UK and a larger than usual number from the Middle East.

"IBC2015 was the first public showing of MediaPost. This is a free-standing portable monitor mount matching the styling and rugged build quality of our established and very popular MediaWall. MediaPost can be moved easily around a studio or used to supplement an existing control room monitorscape. MediaPost accommodates monitor panels of up to 65 inch diagonal screen size and auxiliary devices such as loudspeakers. Applications include studio floor monitoring, script display prompts and in-view studio backgrounds."

Each MediaPost is constructed from extruded aluminium profiles, black or silver anodised, forming a 1,806 millimetre high rigid column. These are supported by a 700 mm wide x 590 mm front-to-back base fitted with rear wheels to allow easy positioning. The base and a middle-height equipment shelf are finished in a matte black powder coating. Loudspeaker mounts are available if required.

An optional horizontal beam matches the finish of the vertical columns. MediaPost is fully height-adjustable to ensure sight lines are optimised when using tilting screen mounts. Cables can be fully concealed behind removable covers. Like MediaWall, MediaPost comes with a two-year guarantee against component failure during normal use.

"The latest EditOne desk also received an excellent reception, including strong interest from a high-profile US-based organisation," adds Managing Director Neil Reed. "Originally introduced at IBC2013, EditOne was the first in a new range of very aggressively priced technical furniture designed for fast flat-pack delivery. Assembly can be performed quickly and easily by the system integrator or customer. We also offer an on-site assembly service."

Front and rear corners of the EditOne desk and optional pedestal are curved, eliminating any possibility of collision with sharp protrusions and contributing to the ultra-modern styling. The worktop and monitor base also have hard-wearing and operator-friendly curved edges at front, sides and rear. EditOne incorporates three equipment pods with a collective nine units of rack space. These form the base of a monitor shelf. Full cable management is provided. Power distribution is optional. An auxiliary equipment pedestal with an additional 11 units of rack space and an integral worktop is also available.

11th All Africa Games brought to viewers by Globecast and Lagardère Sports

Paris, 24th September 2015 Globecast, the global solutions provider for media, has announced today that it has successfully completed a major project with its customer  Lagardère SPORTS to bring comprehensive daily coverage of the 11th All Africa Games to European and African audiences.


The 11th All Africa Games took place from September 4–19 in Brazzaville, Republic of the Congo. This edition marked the 50th anniversary of the Games – with over 50 countries involved in 22 sports – as well as their return to the Congo.


Globecast was contracted by sports marketing agency Lagardère SPORTS, leader in the management of marketing and audiovisual rights for sports in Europe and Africa.


Globecast provided two flyaway antennas in Brazzaville with dedicated satellite capacity for four contribution feeds (equivalent to 300 hours of satellite time) from the country to France. These four feeds were received in Globecast’s Paris headquarters with London operating as backup.


As well as the technical infrastructure, Globecast also took the four feeds arriving in its Parisian MCR and created a comprehensive single package for broadcasters. This included three language variants – Arabic, French and English. This was achieved using dedicated commentary facilities within Globecast with the programme broadcast for six hours per day using three satellite feeds for European and African broadcasters to retransmit.  On request, the distribution of additional private (unilateral) signals for European and African broadcasters was also made possible.


Michele Gosetti, VP Contribution and Media Services at Globecast, says, “We are very pleased that our contribution expertise – technical, logistical and editorial – has been recognised by Lagardère SPORTS. We have extensive experience of operating across Africa, often in challenging conditions.  With three engineers in Brazzaville and a dozen people dedicated to the operation in our Paris MCR during the All Africa Games, the results were great and this was a successful project.”



Dick Pope, BSC was awarded The Royal Photographic Society’s Lumière Award at The Society’s Awards ceremony last Wednesday 16 September at the Royal Society in London.

From the early 1980s Pope shot hundreds of concerts and music videos for bands and artists as diverse as Queen, Tina Turner and The Clash.  Moving into feature films in the mid 80s he photographed Porterhouse Blue for which he was BAFTA nominated, and Philip Ridley’s Reflecting SkinIn 1990 Pope was asked by director Mike Leigh to photograph Life is Sweet, beginning a collaboration that has produced ten features including Secrets and Lies, Vera Drake, and Mr Turner. Pope has twice won the top prize at Camerimage, the Festival of the Art of Cinematography for Vera Drake and Secrets & Lies, and in 1999 Leigh and Pope were recognised there with a major award for their career collaboration.  He also won the Silver Frog at the same festival for The Illusionist for which he was also nominated for Academy, ASC and BSC awards.  Amongst many wins and nominations for his work on Mr Turner he was awarded the Prix Vulcaine for the Technical Artist at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival and also nominated for Academy, BAFTA, BSC, ASC and British Independent Film Awards.


Pope’s many other credits include films for leading US maverick directors such as Richard Linklater, Barry Levinson, John Sayles and Jill Sprecher.  Recently, in New York, he photographed Angelica for Mitchell Lichtenstein the son of the painter Roy Lichtenstein.  His latest project is Legend about the notorious Kray Brothers, written and directed by Brian Helgeland.
