WHAT IS CINE LIVE AND EVA-LIVE?

CINE LIVE and EVA-LIVE solutions refer to the use of cinema cameras for multi-camera live or near-live productions.

A cinema camera is defined by its large sensor, usually 35 mm, which captures high-quality images and enables excellent recording characteristics.

Multi-camera live production consists of shooting with several cameras at once with applications including TV programs, concerts, theater performances, sporting events, stand-up comedy, fashion shows, and other events that take place in front of an audience. It involves the use of a control area (OB vehicle or control room) where captured images can be controlled and dispatched to projectors, displays, recorders, or transmitters.

Near-live refers to productions where there is no direct live broadcast. Images are recorded live, corrected, and edited in post-production before they are aired.

Live production is usually achieved with studio cameras. These camera systems are specifically designed for multi-camera live shooting: they include optical-fiber output, large viewfinders, remote control, CCU, and special functions such as tally and video-return management, call function, and more. These cameras have been improved over many years, but due to their small sensor (⅔˝) and the use of broadcast lenses, they produce a “video look” with limited dynamic range and poor flexibility when post-production is required.

For this reason, and because digital cinema cameras are becoming so popular, demand for the “cinema look” on multi-camera shoots continues to grow.
