Grass Valley sings with ‘Glee’

Also: Tech new on Quantel, EditShare

3D technology and production services firm Cameron/Pace Group used Grass Valley Switcher technology to create a live line cut – or first pre-edit – of the live-action filled production of “Glee Live! In Concert!” for Twentieth Century Fox Television and Twentieth Century Fox Film’s co-production of the “Glee: The 3D Concert Movie,” scheduled for theatrical release August 12. “The faith that CPG placed in Grass Valley technologies only reinforces our belief that specialty 3D-only equipment is not necessary for high-end 3D television and theatrical productions,” said Grass Valley exec veep Jeff Rosica. “Production companies the world over have been and are continuing to produce 3D content with multi-format Grass Valley equipment.”
