LipSync Post changes core router

Post production facility LipSync Post has installed a Blackmagic Videohub 288 routing switcher to connect and manage post production equipment, including LipSync’s recently purchased Baselight grading suites. Rick White, head of CMR, LipSync Post, said: “We looked at routers from several manufacturers but the Blackmagic Videohub proved to be the best value for money, and with up to 288 I/O it will cope well as LipSync continues to grow.” The new integrated multi-format router connects all the machines, monitors and projectors throughout LipSync’s main Soho, London building. Switching is operated via software on a computer in each room, enabling the system to be customised locally. It also offers machine control, which enables easier operation. White continued: “We had to take out the old router and cable the new one in over the space of a weekend, working through the night to ensure no downtime. It was a fairly epic task but the installation was surprisingly straightforward, with just a few teething problems that were quickly ironed out.”
