BBC Studioworks has invested in tapeless capture to cover its Elstree studio operations, including two 12 channel EVS XS3 Servers.
The new tapeless set-up matches BBC Studioworks’ system at its Television Centre studio and post production facility, creating consistency across its sites.
The new tapeless system will be used by all shows at BBC Studioworks’ Elstree production hub this Autumn, starting with the sixteenth series of BBC One’s Strictly Come Dancing.
“Our investment in tapeless capture at Elstree is in response to requests from client productions and provides them with an even neater and more effective workflow,” said Meryl McLaren, commercial manager at BBC Studioworks.
For the sixth year, BBC Studioworks is providing full studio and post production services to Strictly Come Dancing at its Elstree production hub. Hosted in the 15,770 sq. ft. George Lucas Stage 2, the studio houses the iconic 360-degree ballroom set and 700-strong live audience.
BBC Studioworks’ Elstree post production village, with 11 Avid Symphony suites for the show, will meet the fast turnaround editing requirements and will handle up to 100 hours of training material each week. Rushes will be ingested, logged, edited, reviewed, and incorporated into the shows which air on Saturday and Sunday evenings.
BBC Studioworks is also providing post production services to the 60-episode series of the Strictly Come Dancing companion show, It Takes Two, from Elstree.
Strictly Come Dancing – The Launch show will air on BBC One in early September.
