London Live to use Nikon DSLRs

London Live will use Nikon dslrs for newsgathering and in its studios.

Nikon’s D4 cameras will be used in the local TV station’s news and interview studios along with a robotic system developed by Mark Roberts Motion Control (prototype pictured at BVE).

London Live journalists will use Nikon D800 devices for field-based newsgathering.  

Nikon said the cameras would give the channel “a full-frame 35mm cinematic effect”.

“Building a television channel from scratch has given us an exciting opportunity to source the most innovative new technology and find less traditional and more cost-effective ways of doing things,” said London Live technology director Bryn Balcombe.

“Nikon’s digital SLR cameras will be perfect for our new London-based studio, allowing us to provide fast-paced, 24 hour broadcasting without compromising the image quality for our viewers”.

Nikon UK group marketing manager Jeremy Gilbert added: “This exciting new solution combines the stunning image quality that Nikon is famed for, with the precision that comes from MRMC robotics to offer a state of the art automated work flow for London Live.

“By working with the 24/7 TV channel we’ve been able to develop a cost-effective solution that allows broadcasters to operate in niche demographic markets, catering for regional broadcast requirements.”

London Live will launch on 31 March.
