TV 2, one of the largest commercial TV stations in Norway, is relying on tapeless technology from EVS for its studio productions.
“Golden Goal,” a comedic talk show about sports, was developed by Norwegian production company Rubicon TV and produced in TV 2’s Oslo studio. To record, edit, store and playback “Golden Goal,” TV 2 has implemented a solution that includes an HD-ready XT production server for ingest and playout, Multicam LSM software for clipping and on-the-fly editing, an XF removable storage server with XFile software for archiving ISO cameras and transferring clips, and a Final Cut Pro editing station for final edits.
Each week, a guest interview is recorded on the XT server and subsequently edited with Final Cut Pro on a MacBook. Once the interview is complete, the show is recorded “live to tape” with four ISO cameras on the XT. Rough-cut edits are created using Multicam LSM and transferred on the XF for editing on Final Cut Pro. The interview and the different sequences of the program are then restored from the Final Cut Pro to the XT and assembled with Multicam LSM prior to playout on TV 2 Zebra.
