CHUM Television deploys Ikegami Editcam tapeless camcorders
Citytv Toronto recently transitioned to digital nonlinear video acquisition and editing with the purchase of 34 Ikegami DNS-33W Editcam3 tapeless camcorders. CHUM Television’s Citytv serves 11.5 million viewers in the province of Ontario.
An additional 13 DNS-33W camcorders are going to sister station Citytv Vancouver, with two more slated for CHUM’s Alberta stations.
Key features of the 520,000-pixel AIT (Advanced Interline Transfer) camcorder include retroloop, which allows shooters to save video of events after they have occurred; intelligent recording, which enables Editcam to automatically record to available media space; and timelapse recording.
