A new assignment to be proud of: RTL and TV producer Blue Circle (a division of FremantleMedia Netherlands) have chosen United as their facilities partner to organise the technical support for the new RTL Boulevard. United came up with this remote direction solution by working together with its customers to increase the efficiency of the workflow. As a result, the production of RTL Late Night and the direction of RTL Boulevard have been integrated at the new studio on Leidseplein since 29 August.
United has introduced new equipment for this purpose, such as the high-quality Sony HDC‑2500 cameras. New direction facilities have furthermore been realised next to RTL Boulevard’s studio on Leidseplein in Amsterdam. The same direction facilities are used via a fibreglass connection for the production of RTL Late Night on Rembrandtplein. This is entirely in keeping with United’s remote broadcast strategy, which allow the direction of several broadcasts using the same direction facilities.
The technique and possibilities of remote direction we be addressed in more detail in the next edition of our In Productie magazine.
