Interface Media Group switches to Sony

To meet the demand for HD programs, Interface Media Group (IMG), a full-service production and post-production house in Washington, D.C., has added a Sony MVS-6000 production switcher to its control room to add the ability to produce HD programs live or live-to-tape work out of its growing facilities.

The MVS-6000 switcher includes Sony’s new system on a chip image processor, which embeds a keyer component and DME processing within the switcher’s CPU, and enables multiformat switching, multiple key channels, transitions and DME functions to be carried out on one chip. This allows for a compact design, high-speed effect processing, and low-power consumption.

Offering much of the functionality and performance of Sony’s 8000 series in a compact size, the MVS-6000 features 10 keyers and six channels of DVE in a much more efficient frame. It is expandable with up to 49 inputs, provides powerful internal effects capability and is available in configurations up to 2.5 M/E channels.

Located in 30,000sq-ft of space in the heart of Washington’s Golden Triangle district, IMG provides graphics design and animation, digital editing and compositing, sound design, audio recording and mixing, studio production, field production, color enhancement, tape duplication, standards and format conversions, radio and TV spot distribution, subtitling, captioning and audio descriptive services, new media authoring, compression and streaming.
