Starwinder, BBC Technology Group’s project to move to tapeless HD production by 2010, is to trial the Grass Valley Infinity Digital Media Camcorder and related products from Thomson.
The initial phase of the Starwinder project sees tapeless acquisition systems from Grass Valley and the Panasonic P2-based DVCPRO HD undergoing intensive trials over the next year.
For such a large organization, a smooth transition to new technology is vitally important.
Thomson announced that the Grass Valley Infinity Digital Media Camcorder would be part of the trial last week. Word of Panasonic’s involvement came in May.
