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!
