Hong Kong’s Phoenix Satellite TV Installs DaVinci Resolve Studio and HyperDeck Studio Pro

Publish date:

Beijing - October 14, 2015 - Blackmagic Design today announced that Phoenix Satellite TV, a Hong Kong based multinational broadcaster with six channels and an audience in excess of 250 million viewers worldwide, installed DaVinci Resolve Studios and HyperDeck Studio Pro broadcast SSD recorders at its facility in Beijing.

Phoenix Satellite TV’s Beijing facility takes care of production and post production of its non news programs, including top shows such as “Panoramic Eyeshot of Phoenix,“ “Behind the Headlines with Wentao,” “A Date with Luyu” and many others. With the goal of elevating the production value of their promos and documentaries, Phoenix Satellite TV built a new color grading suite around two Mac based DaVinci Resolve systems.

For each of the four studios of its Beijing facility, Phoenix Satellite TV also installed HyperDeck Studio Pro SSD recorders and a computer connected to an UltraStudio Express capture and playback device via Thunderbolt to record camera footage or PGM from the production switcher.

“UltraStudio Express captures the footage directly onto our shared storage for post production,” said Liang Bojian, engineer of Phoenix Satellite TV. “HyperDeck Studio Pros are used for backup recording and when post production has to be done outside the facility; it’s easy to take the SSDs and go anywhere.”

“Besides in the studios, we also use the HyperDeck Studio Pro recorders at outdoor production locations or in OB vans, since its design is so compact and portable,” he continued.

“The HyperDeck Studio Pro recorder supports non stop recording, which is great for TV show production. And it captures footage in open file formats. Once we are done with recording, the post people simply take the SSD out, insert it into a SSD reader, and then start editing without copying footage,” Liang concluded.
