File-Based Production at Pinewood Studios

Copyright: Pinewood

The internationally renowned Pinewood Studios Group has enhanced its equipment offering with 8 channels of DVS VENICE.

Upgrade for TV Studio Facilities

This forms an essential part of Pinewood Television’s upgraded TV studio facilities. Alongside VENICE, Pinewood Television also decided to implement an additional DVS storage solution, SpycerBox Ultra. With this DVS equipment, Pinewood sets the customer framework for fast content provision.

Repurposing Material

One of the most important features for Pinewood Television’s new file-based workflow is the potential to easily run through the process of repurposing material. Thanks to VENICE and Pinewood’s newly built data center, its experienced television team can react quickly to its customers’ needs and their changing requirements. This state-of-the-art workflow allows for comfortable and reliable content provision.

Revolutionary Standards

Equipped with new interfaces, VENICE meets revolutionary standards. The VENICE systems provide 8 video channels to be utilized for recording and playback on shows recording in Pinewood’s television studios, plus providing ingest and near instant editing. The DVS Media Production Hub manages native capturing and playout of all common broadcast formats such as Apple ProRes 422, Panasonic DVCPRO®, AVC-Ultra, Avid DNxHD® and Sony XDCAM® HD, simultaneously scaling the different formats and creating proxy files. VENICE is especially strong when it comes to changing projects with different formats for different clients and productions. The Media Production Hub allows for a quick and comfortable configuration and adapts to different scenarios with ease, providing the users with the right content quickly.

High-Performance Bridge

Moreover, Pinewood Television’s production chain was upgraded with a SpycerBox Ultra that will be implemented as a metadata and file server. The high-performance bridge between different networks will enable Pinewood to connect its real-time and non-real-time workflows with each other so it can profit from the additional protection with multiple RAID-5 systems.
