Lanterna Magica logging system targets reality TV


With Reality, directors can encode, log, view, browse, and search video and metadata while shooting is in progress, saving post-production time.

Lanterna Magica, a developer of video indexing and logging software and systems, has announced the launch of Reality, a new system designed to streamline the production of non-scripted television shows. The company will rent turnkey systems for approximately $4000 per week, and not sell them.

Reality makes it easy to assess hours of raw video material from multiple cameras quickly and make shot selection decisions in minutes. Directors can encode, log, view, browse, and search video and metadata while shooting is in progress, saving post-production time.

A Web-based video content description system, Reality supports an unlimited number of camera feeds. Staff can access footage at any time, from any location—well before shooting is finished—and create shortcuts to access their content quickly.

Camera feeds can be distributed to a variety of devices, including tape decks, high-capacity disks, as well as to the Logger, Reality’s storage medium. The Logger ingests audio, video, and time code signals and produces compressed digital video for browsing that is synchronized with the time codes and content descriptions entered by operators. Reality’s searchable video library functions as the repository for stored digital video and metadata.
