Sony Pictures Television upgrades To XPRI editing system

Sony Pictures Television has purchased three XPRI nonlinear editing systems from Sony Electronics to streamline production for its “Wheel of Fortune” and “Jeopardy” television game shows. The XPRI system has been used on both shows since the start of this season, according to Sony.

The three XPRI systems are mostly used on “Wheel of Fortune.” One system is used primarily for ingest and output, a second for doing “show cuts” or cuts to time, and the third system is used for finishing work. All three are attached to XPRI Net, Sony’s shared storage solution in a SAN configuration that is fully RAID protected. XPRI Net offers multiple seats of unrestricted project, sequence, and clip media sharing in full online resolution for the HDCAM and MPEG IMX native formats as well as uncompressed HD and SD material.

For this season, the XPRI system is only being used on “Jeopardy” for materials that are pre-produced and rolled into the shows, such as clues and other ancillary elements. Final editing for “Jeopardy” is still being done on a Sony BVE-9100 linear editing system, with plans to move to the XPRI system for next season.
