EditShare and Nemeton TV Team Up for Rugby World Cup

Nemeton TV’s new production studio features EditShare’s fast, tapeless workflow to capture exciting Rugby World Cup coverage

Basingstoke, UK – September 9, 2011 - EditShare®, the technology leader in cross-platform collaborative editing and shared media storage systems, announced at the IBC 2011 exhibition that Nemeton TV, Ireland’s largest production company, has purchased EditShare’s integrated production and playout technology - Geevs multichannel ingest and Flow production asset management; tiered storage with high-performance XStream Series and Ark archiving – to produce 2011 Rugby World Cup programming. Commissioned by TG4, Ireland’s National Broadcaster to capture the World Cup games, Nemeton TV has built a state-of-the-art HD production studio around the EditShare tapeless workflow. “The Rugby World Cup games command an audience of just over 4 billon viewers. Only the Olympics, Football World Cup and European Football Championships have higher viewer ratings. With this level of popularity, the production gear we use to capture, produce, and broadcast coverage must be as rugged as the game itself,” said Irial Mac Murchu, Managing Director, Nemeton TV. “Our positive experience with EditShare combined with their knowledge and technical capabilities to manage sports workflow from ingest to archive, integrating important components such as NLEs and Vision Mixers, gave us high confidence to equip our purpose-built studio with EditShare end-to-end.”

Spearheading the installation is EditShare Premiere System Integrator Eurotek. "This was an extremely challenging and exciting project with a fast turnaround time for the complete studio build and the workflow design,” Kevin Moore, Eurotek. “We knew when working with EditShare that we could rely on them to build the complete collaboration solution."

“EditShare offers integration across the board – with our own products and industry standard production and broadcast equipment. This is critical to support fast productions such as sports. With metadata and content shared across the workflow, production teams can turn around game plays faster than ever before,” comments Tara Montford, Managing Director, EditShare. “For Nemeton TV, they need seamless integration from the satellite truck to the Vision Mixer to the editing workgroup. This is where EditShare shines. EditShare moves content from each component to the next, ensuring all the details associated with media migrate along with it. Operators, editors and producers have access to content in real time – with flexible project sharing rules that organize the media sharing on a platform with near infinite scalability. We remove the complexity of media movement and increase the speed.”

EditShare will showcase the end-to-end workflow at Nemeton during the IBC 2011 event on stand 7.C21. For more information or to book a press appointment, please contact Janice Dolan at: janice@zazilmediagroup.com.
