ESPN taps For-A
ESPN has added 12 For-A DCC-70HS color correctors and 12 DCC-OU remote control units to its facility in Bristol, CT. It marks another in a recent string of installs for the system, including four units aboard a new HD truck from Turner Entertainment.
The DCC-70HS supports both SD and HD signals and is suited for facilities where producing and distributing multi-format projects is critical to their business. It can process signals in the 1080i and 720p HD formats, making it perfectly suited for post facilities and mobile truck companies that often switch between the two formats for different clients.
It provides correction settings for up to 99 events and clip setting data memory of up to nine events, and separate control of Y&C white clip and Y black clip, processing presets, GPI auto recall presets during multiple source operations. The DCC-OU control panel can control up to four DCC-700 or DCC-70HS main units.
The DCC-700, a digital component I/O color corrector, provides 32-bit performance with 4:4:4 component processing for balanced, differential or sepia color correction. Users can select between separate R, G, B, white and black level controls or a single control to group adjust RGB color parameters by the same value. The DCC-700 enables separate control of Y and C white clips and Y black clip and process function control. The DCC-700 is capable of preset processing, and an optional GPI connector can be installed to enable the user to rapidly recall and apply preset signal processing sequentially during multiple signal source productions.
