That Lot upgrades its studios to UHD by relying on ATG Danmon
ATG Danmon has recently announced the completion of a multi-camera studio and control room upgrade for That Lot. This is a company specialized in social media content production support. This upgrade project is related with the relocation of That Lot’s headquarters to new premises in Bishopsgate. It is an upgrade to full UHD vision, routing, recording, monitoring and archiving.
“Moving to new headquarters at 135 Bishopsgate gives us extra space and a working environment much more in tune with the dynamic style of production which we strive to achieve. In addition to the UHD upgrade, ATG partnered with us in upgrading the audio system to support a new sound workflow, including a Unity server, rerouting and additional capabilities such as de-embedding from SDI channels,” explains Ben Forder, Head of Video at That Lot.
“This relocation was almost entirely of equipment which we integrated for the original project, plus additional studio lighting,” adds Jonathan Hughes, ATG Danmon’s Head of Systems Integration. “The studio retains the original Blackmagic Design 4K UHD cameras which are still giving excellent results both in the studio and when operated on location. Studio illumination is from a ceiling-mounted Cirro rig which can be adjusted. A full-colour LED-backlit cyclorama is incorporated to achieve sharp chroma-key superimposition. 360 degree surround video and audio capture can also be performed if required.”
About the control room, Mr. Hughes explains that “the control room suite is used for live production and editing. Enhanced facilities here now include a full UHD vision mixer and routing switcher capturing to Softron recorders and SNS EVO networked storage. We have also relocated a digital audio mixer, graphics computers, a Custom Consoles desk and Sonifex talkbacks.”
