UK-based 3sixtymedia has installed four Snell & Wilcox Kahuna SD/HD multiformat production switchers at The Manchester Studios, standardizing its three studios as well as the Starlight Theatre on the Kahuna system.
3sixtymedia produces live entertainment programs for UK TV broadcasters, such as ITV and the BBC, and by standardizing on the Kahuna, the company has achieved efficiency in adapting its studios and workflow to meet the requirements of these different productions.
Like the Kahuna production switchers installed in Studio 8 and Studio 12, a four-M/E switcher installed in Studio 6 features a separate master auxiliary panel, six remote auxiliary panels, four channels of DVE and an 80-input option. The two-M/E Kahuna system installed in the Starlight Theatre ensures compatibility across the facility's switching systems.
