Amsterdam, IBC, Stand 7.A23 – 11th September 2009 – Digital Vision the premier supplier of picture enhancement systems for film and television post-production, has today announced a major sale to Belgium’s public broadcaster Vlaamse Radio- en Televisieomroep (VRT). This latest contract highlights the company’s continued success in the European broadcast market.
VRT, based in Brussels, has invested in a host of Digital Vision’s state-of-the-art solutions for grading and finishing HD documentaries and drama series. The installation, which is split between the post production and archive departments, includes DVNR, Nucoda HD and three Data Conforms with DVO options. The new systems supplied by Digital Vision allows VRT to master new material and re-master old archive footage into a central Avid ISIS server for use in new programmes. The broadcaster already has two projects in the pipeline, which will benefit from the full Digital Vision treatment. Goesting is a drama fiction series due for television release in Belgium in January 2010 and Wolven, a major crime drama, also due for television release early next year.
Geert Daelemans, project engineer at VRT, explains, “The broadcast market is changing. TV makers are investing heavily in HD production and as part of this the grade needs the same high standard as the rest of the production. This is why we chose Digital Vision. The systems have an extremely creative toolset that fits seamlessly with our Avid workflow and offers the best value for money.”
Kelvin Bolah, Digital Vision’s VP of Sales adds, “Digital Vision has a strong hold in the Benelux region and this is reflected in the sales that we are announcing. VRT is Belgium’s public service broadcaster and we are very proud to have been awarded this contract following the stringent tender process.”
