Phoenix TV rises from the virtual flames

Hong Kong-based Phoenix TV has bought two virtual studio systems from Orad and Vinten Radamec for its new Hong Kong studios. These include a full Orad graphics system, three FP-145 Fusion Robotic Pedestals ,six FH-100 robotic heads (plus standard Vinten tripods and pedestals).

"Phoenix is the CNN of greater China. It's the only news network accepted by both mainland China and Taiwan, and has about 175 million viewers," said Fai Keung, sales director, Orad Hi-Tec Systems (North Asia).

It will mean that Phoenix now has six virtual studios in the region. "They want to work in a very efficient way, with very few cameramen and to take the technological capabilities to the limit," Keung said.

"It will be one of the first to use virtual tracking with the Fusion," added Mark Osborn, business development manager, Vinten Radamec. Phoenix is now building a new studio in Beijing that will become its new HQ. It will be twice the size of the Hong Kong studio and will using both companies' systems there too.
