ENG Crew Hamburg
For fast-moving news about unforeseeable turns of events out in the field , ENG (Electronic News Gathering) is the medium of choice: ENG works with a single camera-person and a reporter combined with a production vehicle for short News-Flashes as well as multi-camera-outfits feeding newsreel into a satellite truck featuring editing and digital sat-broadcasting facilities. Even wireless camera-equipped drones can be spliced into the system for ENG – when the story breaks, a view from above might just prove more useful than any camera-person surrounded by a crowd or other obstacles. For those more complex live-reporting situations, when every second counts, we are prepared for fast and reliable connections between TV-station and reporter avoiding the unnerving delays that plagued live broadcasting in the past.
Politics, sport, culture, war and other catastrophes, Multivision Film Production Hamburg has been covering historic international news-events for more than 30 years – our experienced crews combined with our state-of-the-art-technology might just make the difference for your news-format. Just give us a call and we’ll move into action!
For your Live-Broadcasting, EFP (Electronic Field Production) offers much more than a ENG Production: It combines the flexibility of ENG by being present right on the spot where the Live-action is unfolding with the production care and control that is usually offered only by a fully equipped television studio. EFP is the ideal medium for sport-events of all sorts, celebrity award shows and red-carpet-affairs such as party-conventions, corporate videos, concerts and state visits etc. Even feature-formats, theater-performances and daily soaps recorded with multiple camera/mixer-setups rely on EFP, offering full control of many digital video effects for the producer/director:
VCRs, Hard Disc Players and Video Servers for instant playback, on-screen statistics and graphic elements all mixed with the live image result in a real gripping high-speed-adventure for your audience. In live sports and show broadcasting, EFP even allows highlight-reel editing in mid-game and picture-inserts with sideline-interviews while the action plays on the big screen. EFP is also the ideal solution for poor lighting conditions in the field since it guarantees live control of all light-sources on the spot. When the occasion dictates the use of maximum focal length cameras (more than 600 mm lenses) for those far-away images like a start of a spaceship etc., producers and commentators can rely on secure information through multiple monitors as well as great sound guaranteed by many microphones feeding into a mixing console for that unique “live atmosphere” that viewers cherish so much.
While ENG is great for a more or less spontaneous coverage of breaking news, EFP needs careful and detailed planning long before the actual recording begins. Multivision Filmproduktion Hamburg has a long history of experience in EFP, so let us cover your event, your audience will benefit from our expertise!
