The Colbert Report
HD Production Workflow & Support
In addition to the planned migration of The Colbert Report from Standard (SD) to High Definition (HD), Control Group identified a once-in-a-lifecycle opportunity for the studio to improve its network architecture and streamline its entire creative workflow. Our innovative solution allows the multi platform graphics group to share assets seamlessly with the editing pipeline via file based workflow, high throughput interconnects, and advanced network routing. Such tight integration is exceptional for the broadcast world.
To manage the impact of the transition on the show’s creative staff, the upgrade project was broken into hundreds of “bite size” phases that were implemented strategically and systematically over a period of 18 months. Implementation and transition was completely transparent, with no negative impact on the production or staff.
