As part of London-based LipSync Post’s recent investment program, the full service post-production facility has installed a Blackmagic Videohub 288 routing switcher to connect and manage the increasing amount of post-production equipment, including LipSync’s recently purchased Baselight grading suites.
Rick White, Head of CMR, LipSync Post, said, “We looked at routers from several manufacturers but the Blackmagic Videohub proved to be the best value for money, and with up to 288 I/O it will cope well asLipSync continues to grow.”
The new integrated multi-format router connects all the machines, monitors and projectors throughout LipSync’s main Wardour Street building. Switching is operated via software on a computer in each room, enabling thesystem to be customized locally. It also offers machine control which enables easier operation.
White continues, “We had to take out the old router and cable the new one in over the space of a weekend, working through the night to ensure no downtime. It was a fairly epic task but the installation was surprisingly straightforward, with just a few teething problems that were quickly ironedout.”
