The studio contains multiple sets including a chroma key green screen set for virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) productions and a news set containing a 5-meter-wide production grade LED video-wall from Unilumin. All the studio cameras are NDI 4K, and all the networking and production systems are based on NDI 5 technology from BirdDog and NewTek.
The studio will provide some extra communications ability for iFAST. Now, the company can produce and live-stream high quality 4K professional television programmes and provides content library to its customers which include over 520 companies.
“Tapping on the potential of the rapidly growing digital media space, we see iFAST TV as a natural extension of our fintech driven and investor focused business as we continually seek to better serve, educate and engage our investors,” said Mr Lim Chung Chun, Chairman and CEO of iFAST Corp.
“Covid-19 has dramatically impacted how corporations communicate with their customers and partners. With conferences and exhibitions being cancelled and travel being restricted, many corporations are choosing to build professional grade TV studios to create their own content and communicate directly with their customers via social media and streaming to apps,” said Fintan Mc Kiernan, CEO of Ideal Systems Singapore. “This is truly a next generation TV production system supporting end-to-end 4K over IP from camera, through production and live streamed securely up to 4K to the viewer.”
