San Jose, California, USA â€“ September 24, 2008 –
. today announced that
selected Blackmagic Design products to create the stunning graphics for the 2008 Primetime Creative Arts EmmyÂ® Awards. These Emmy awards were for programs and individual achievements at the 60th Annual Emmy Awards presentation.
â€œEarlier this year, I showed Spike Jones, Jr., producer of the Creative Arts Emmys, my HD reel that had been created on our new Blackmagic online suite,â€? said Scott Bryant, editor/owner, Steam Productions. â€œI believe that the impact of showing my reel on a large screen in full 1080 certainly helped my odds (as opposed to delivering a DVD, like most candidates). Spike was impressed with the reel and let me know immediately that I would be designing the show this year.â€?
One of the major concerns for Scott Bryant was that all of the footage and stills for the Emmys were broadcast safe with legal colors. However, this wasnâ€™t a problem for Steamâ€™s designers, because their Blackmagic Design Multibridge Pro automatically adjusted all the video outputs, ensuring the rendered Blackmagic 10 bit RGB footage was filtered for oversaturated colors and over-brightness. In effect, Multibridge Pro and DeckLink HD Pro capture card enabled Scott Bryantâ€™s team of designers to stay focused on their design work while liberating them from the technical aspects of the production.
â€œUltimately, the show went off without a hitch, the client was very happy, and is looking forward to lots of new work we can do together,â€? concluded Scott. â€œI’m happy that I have a foolproof system that allows me to create freely so that I can do what I do best. Everybody wins.â€?
â€œWe are very excited to have been a part of the 2008 Primetime Creative Arts Emmys program,â€? said Dan May, president, Blackmagic Design Inc. â€œEnabling designers such as Scott Bryant at Steam to create the most amazing visual effects is what Blackmagic Design is all about.â€?
