We’re very excited about some of the work we’ve done recently in collaboration with our friends at The CollecTV in the field (literally!) of outside broadcast for live sporting events.The CollecTV is a team of experienced broadcast professionals, formed in 2013 to provide systems and workflow services on-site for live events for major broadcasters.
The CollecTV initially approached us to see whether PixStor might be suitable for a forthcoming project – Sky Sports’ outside broadcast at the World Cup Darts event in Hamburg. The proposed workflow, based upon Adobe Premiere and EVS IP Director gave PixStor the opportunity to flex its muscles in a live editorial environment, so we jumped at the chance. The Hamburg event was such a success that we’ve recently completed our third outside broadcast with The CollecTV and are looking forward to six further events stretching into 2015.
PixStor is now our preferred storage solution for outside broadcasts because of its reliability and seamless integration with our workflow applications, EVS IP Director in particular, and we look forward to collaborating on future events with Pixit Media. – Chris Sarson, CollecTV
