Lime Pictures selects Crystal Vision for major HD upgrade

UK production company Lime Pictures has chosen 91 Crystal Vision interface boards for a major upgrade to HD, which includes a complete new HD infrastructure as well as new production galleries and edit suites.

The decision to begin producing its popular drama series "Hollyoaks" in HD for transmission on 4HD, Channel 4's new HD service in the UK, triggered the move.

Among the boards ordered were 32 video distribution amplifiers, including 16 HDDA105C and HDDA111C HD DAs used for studio floor distribution and general distribution and 16 VDA110M analog video DAs for distribution of trilevel syncs, black and burst.

Q-Down123 downconverters are being used for in-house SD monitoring, distribution and DVD production, while the Up-and-down-A up/down/crossconverter was selected for general purpose format conversion. Lime Pictures is using 16 FTX HD and FRX HD fiber-optic transmitters and receivers to link the production galleries with the central technical facilities, where distances are too great for HD cable connections.
