(Billerica, Massachusetts--December 17, 2012) Broadcast Pix™ today announced the Sámi Cultural Centre Sajos in Inari, Finland, is using a Granite™ 1000 Video Control Center™ for live event production. Built to preserve and develop Sámi culture and business, the modern facility was completed in January and has hosted a variety of events, including seminars, workshops, and concerts.
“Granite is a good solution because of the powerful features and because it is a cost effective HD video control system,” said Mikko Juntunen, systems specialist, production and post, for Mediatrade in Helsinki, Finland, the systems integrator that installed the system. “The integrated switcher and clip server – and options such as Panasonic camera control – were also important issues in planning the system integration.”
Sajos offers several venues for events, from small and medium-sized conference rooms to a main hall that can accommodate up to 430 people. Multi-camera productions have been streamed on the Internet, recorded for event organizers, distributed on the facility’s internal television channel, and used to provide I-MAG (image magnification) for live audiences. Juntunen said the facility uses a variety of Granite’s built-in workflow tools, including the Fluent™ Clip Store, Harris Inscriber CG, customizable Fluent-View multi-viewer, and chromakey. Granite may also be used as the clip server for all screenings during Skabmagovat 2013, an upcoming film festival, according to Juntenen.
“Granite is an all-in-one package,” said Joonas Saari of the Sajos Centre. “It has made the multi-camera tasks, such as live streaming and video projection projects possible.”
