Kayenne peppers Cameron Pace’s Glee in 3D26 July 2011
3D technology and production services specialists, Cameron Pace Group used Grass Valley switcher technology to create a live line cut (1st pre edit) of Glee Live! In Concert! for Twentieth Century Fox Television and Twentieth Century Fox Film’s co-production of Glee: The 3d Concert Movie scheduled to hit cinemas on August 12, writes David Fox.
CPG used a Grass Valley Kayenne video production centre switcher during the recording, and Grass also supported CPG with on-site technical training and full event support to assure that the production crew was fully up to speed on the Kayenne.
The switcher was newly installed in CPG’s state-of-the-art, fully integrated mobile workflow unit, the Fusion 3D Mobile Unit One. The OB also used a Grass Valley K2 Dyno Replay System for multichannel 3D playback.
“We strive for the highest 3D quality in every production in order to tell the story in the best way possible, and the Grass Valley Kayenne gave us that for Glee,” said Cameron Pace Group Co-Chairman and CEO, Vince Pace (pictured).
Using the Kayenne during the recording "was simple and easy,” added CPG 3D Engineer, Bruno Brunelle.
“Kayenne gave us the tools needed to record the energy and flow of the live performance and bring to the Gleeks (Glee fans) the rich 3D experience they have come to expect from Cameron Pace Group.”
“The faith that Cameron Pace Group placed in Grass Valley technologies only reinforces our belief that specialty 3D-only equipment is not necessary for high-end 3D television and theatrical productions,” said Jeff Rosica, Executive Vice President of Grass Valley.
“Production companies the world over have been and are continuing to produce 3D content with multiformat Grass Valley equipment, and we’re proud to support them in their role.”
