Rai 2’s news studio upgrades with Vitec Videocom6 August 2013
Rai 2’s flagship news programme, Tg2, has had a studio fit-out with equipment from some of Vitec Videocom’s brands. Products from Autoscript, Sachtler and Vinten Radamec, have been deployed in the recently launched studio, and are used to produce five daily news programmes for Tg2’s national and international audience.
The project was managed by Trans Audio Video (TAV) and involved planning and configuring a Vinten Radamec robotics solutions, which integrates into the main control system across two separate studios.
The Vinten Radamec system comprises six robotic pedestals, including four Fusion FP188, two additional next generation FHR-35 pan and tilt heads, and the company’s HDVRC control system with touchscreen monitor and joystick panel. Also featured are four manual Sachtler Vario Ped 2-75 pedestals, with Video 25 Plus FBfluid heads.
Sergio Brighel, technical director, TAV, said: “The main challenge on this complex project was the extremely tight schedule, there was no margin for error because we had to be up and running in time for the launch date set by Rai. The installation was completed in just over eight weeks and this period covers the initial planning right through to the configuration of the robotics system.”
“We have a long standing relationship with many of the Vitec Group brands and have been installing and supplying the equipment for several years. Thanks to Vitec Videocom’s support, we were able to meet the deadline and provide the highest performing solution for the biggest broadcaster in Italy.”
TAV is currently planning further installations incorporating equipment from Vitec Videocom brands across the Rai channels, which are expected to take place later this year.
