Silverdraft has opted for routing systems from Utah Scientific, which it would employ on its Mobileviz trailer. The trailer is used as a mobile studio-on-wheels to facilitate the processing of visual effects for a film production unit in real time. A supercomputer powers the Mobileviz production trailer.
“What Silverdraft is doing with real-time video rendering in a mobile unit is nothing short of phenomenal, truly unique in the world of digital film production and postproduction. To be involved with organizations that push the limits like this is truly exciting for us,” said Tom Harmon, president and CEO, Utah Scientific.
The three UTAH-400 digital video switchers installed by the company would distribute the video signals within the trailer-based studio and make for an interactive involvement of the entire production team comprising directors, producers, editors, etc. This would ensure that everybody in the team has access to the media stream. Moreover, UTAH-400 comes with the following features as well:
• Signal presence detection
• Low power consumption
• Redundant power supply
• Additional control cards
• Internal monitor matrix
The digital switcher comes with an additional UTAH-200 analog switcher (that supports multiple formats and scalability) as well as a UTAH 400/DATA router (that works in combination with the digital switcher). According to Silverdraft, the Utah Scientific routing system is 'robust, reliable, flexible, and easy to configure from client to client'. Utah offers a warranty of 10 years on the product, which is an exceptional service gesture.
