Your guilty pleasure returns, Ibiza Weekender Series 2
Last summer our team were out in Ibiza for the second year in a row, working with TwoFour. We spent a number of days rigging before the team settled into almost 3 weeks, 24 hours a day streaming all of the activities around the hotel into our EVS record and logging system. Material was streamed to a number of locations simultaneously including our on site servers and portable drives, before being backed up to LTO tapes.
"This is a job we've done before in a location we know, obviously being on a small Spanish island and recording 24/7 means that reliability is key. We don't have any time for reliability issues, even a small issue could have a knock on effect to all of our backups keeping up in real-time. Therefore our EVS workflow really is the only option we would suggest for our clients. The record and backup system needs to just work, you cannot stop and re-record reality content if you need to re-boot. Having an Avid edit system on site also allows us to check the broadcast quality and offline quality files, we group them and prep the bins ready for the offline to begin." Said The Collectv's Chris Sarson.
Once the servers and systems were shipped back to the UK the system was hooked into the edit facility where every producer could access the rig material and also the PSC material that was filmed in locations outside of the hotel grounds. Every producer having a viewing station allows them to be putting together a story or looking for additional shots by using the logged metadata. Each editor can be finessing the edit within Avid and doing what they're skilled at, while the producer finds the pictures they want that tell the story.
Ibiza Weekender Series 2 starts Sunday 7th February 9pm on ITV2.
