TVG moves to HD production chain

Spanish broadcaster Television de Galicia (TVG) has chosen Vitec Videocom brands for its HD news production. TVG has invested in Litepanels’ Sola LED lighting and Vision 100 pan and tilt heads and tripods from Vinten. The Litepanels Sola ENG panel is a highly flexible light source, with the ability to vary the beam between 10˚ and 70˚ in a single lamp. This gives the camera operator great control over the quality of the image within the tight timescales allowed for a news shoot. The LED panel uses up to 95% less power than an equivalent tungsten lamp. The result is that the operator has less weight to carry so can get to the prime spot quicker, and continue shooting for longer. The Vinten Vision 100 pan and tilt head has a very broad payload range of 7kg to 20kg, so can support either a camera alone or a full rig with lights, large batteries and prompters with no lack of performance. “In moving to HD, we wanted to take advantage of the latest technology to give our news crews a real edge,” said Antonio Posse, engineering director of TVG. “With the addition of these two Vitec Videocom brands, Litepanels and Vinten, it now means our news crews will find it easier to get to a location and will be able to shoot better pictures for longer. This gives us a real edge in newsgathering.” The Litepanels Sola ENG LED lights were supplied by the Litepanels Spanish distributor Moncada y Lorenzo. The Vinten Vision 100 heads and tripods were supplied by Vinten distributor, Seydevisa.
