On the field


Our qualified multi-skilled cameramen can help your team in the field. On hard news assignments, they work as a “one man crew”: shooting, editing in the field , encoding and then feeding the pieces, directly to your ftp server or through the Raw-News system. When shooting documentaries, they have the time to further demonstrate their craft, using years of experience of camerawork and lighting, to focus and emphasize the heart of the story.

- Shooting: on DV, HDV, HD format.

Double camera recording system: Tape and a camera-mounted Hard drive/flash cards.

- Editing: Finalcut pro editing software on the latest MacBook Pro laptop for a complete edit directly in the field, with no tape acquisition time required, thanks to the camera mounted hard disk or the flash cards recording system.

- Encoding:  Video compression through the highest-quality broadcast video codecs. 

- Transmission: Sending the final master through a Bgan or any web access point, to your FTP server or to our Raw-News server.

- On the Raw-News server:  A low-resolution preview will be automatically created and this link will be sent, via e-mail, to your  broadcast center for your viewing. A high-quality version of this item can then be downloaded from any web browser.

- Finalizing: The video-file can be ingested on your professional edit suite, and is ready for broadcast.
