Cinevideogroup and nobeo broadcast Sonisphere Festival to Cinemas worldwide

Cinevideogroup and nobeo broadcast Sonisphere Festival to Cinemas worldwide

On June 22nd and 23rd, 2010 the Sonisphere Festival came to Sofia, Bulgaria. On the first day of the festival Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth and Anthrax were on the set list. These four legendary acts had never before performed together on the same stage. This unique event was broadcast worldwide via satellite to 800 movie theatres. In addition, on October 01st, 2010 a double-DVD and Blu-ray featuring the recordings of the event will be released.

nobeo’s sister-company Cinevidegroup used the OB truck "nobeo 1" for the live broadcast and recording of the event. During production, a total of 15 GVG LDK 8000 cameras were used. The recording was achieved using five EVS XT HD2 systems on two EVS X-File Systems with DNXHD codec. The complete mix for all four bands was produced on the Lawo mc266 in "nobeo 1". In the "Green Room" of the utility truck, a Yamaha DM 1000 Audio Mixing Console was used as a broadcasting- and editing mixer. The multi-track recording was realised using Pyramix and Sequoia (Backup) which were connected with 64 channels via Madi. The mixing was done "read after write".
