The Sound of Music – LIVE

The Sound of Music – LIVE

This weekend saw one of the most iconic films of all time being beautifully performed live on ITV.

With former EastEnders star Kara Tointon playing Maria in this rendition of the 1965 film classic that is The Sound of Music, joined alongside west end star Julian Ovenden (Captain Von Trapp), former Coronation Street actress Katherine Kelly (Baroness Else) and Pointless host Alexander Armstrong (Uncle Max Detweiler).

Of the 17 cameras used to make this possible, Broadcast RF provided three wireless steadicam Camera systems mounted on Telegenic’s Sony F55 cameras running at a high bit rate to match the quality of the line cameras, covering 3 stage areas at the 3 Mills Studios in London.

Last night’s programme was a huge success, with all three of our HD RF cameras working flawlessly. Throughout the over the 1 hour and 55 minutes of total camera air time, our three HD RF systems were live for over 51 minutes of the programme, a huge percentage by any standard. Everybody involved in the production were delighted with the results.

With all performers singing their songs flawlessly over a live broadcast along with their brilliant acting, this was a show that you would not have wanted to miss.
