· ATG Danmon provides industry-leading video infrastructure to the world leader in music-based entertainment.
Completing the first stage of a global strategy to equip the world leader in music-based entertainment with advanced video production capabilities, ATG Danmon UK has formally commissioned the first of an international network of five-camera UHD flyaways for Universal Music Group (UMG).
"The system is equipped to allow creation of 1080/24p a high definition proxy from each camera chain. The proxies will be used to make an edit decision list for post-shoot 4K conforming. Also included is audio processing for Dolby Atmos which is steadily being adopted by cinema owners around the world."
Following acceptance tests of the complete system at ATG Danmon's Letchworth headquarters, Jonathan Hughes and Jon Brewer made a client site visit to complete final tests at Capitol Studios in Los Angeles and the system is already actively in use. The build at Abbey Road Studios is on the road to completion.
