TV Magic Performs HD Upgrade for Benny Hinn Ministries

New Studio Infrastructure Provides Future-Proof Platform for Production and Post

SAN DIEGO — Feb. 20, 2007 — TV Magic today announced that it has been selected by Benny Hinn Ministries to design and engineer an HD installation at the ministries‘ Aliso Viejo, Calif., production studios. The new HD studio will provide Benny Hinn Ministries with permanent studio facilities and enable production of its popular “This Is Your Day!” weekly program, along with special televised events available to viewers, in the superior sound and picture quality of HD television.

“Benny Hinn Ministries has always been a leader in terms of the quality of our production, and this HD installation is an important part of our continued leadership in the creation of programming with a unique look and high production value,” said Truett Hancock, president of television operations at Benny Hinn Ministries. “We hope that the quality of our productions will encourage more viewers to tune in and become interested in the ministry element of our broadcasts. In markets such as Japan, Europe, and Australia, where HD already has taken hold, this new production capability will help us extend our presence and reach an even wider viewing audience.”

The SD productions of Benny Hinn Ministries have relied on the same production truck and flypack used for the ministries‘ crusades. As a result, production of studio programming was limited both in terms of format and flexibility. TV Magic worked closely with Benny Hinn Ministries in designing a forward-looking production infrastructure that seamlessly integrates components from a variety of manufacturers. The HD studios enable an improvement in sound and picture quality while also enhancing the overall production workflow.

At the core of the new installation is an nVISION router and terminal gear, which give Benny Hinn Ministries dramatically improved signal routing capability, along with five Sony SD/HD cameras, a Grass Valley™ Kayak HD/SD switcher, Sony DigiBeta machines, an Evertz® MVP™ monitor wall processor and terminal equipment, Clarity displays, and a Euphonix audio board. The new production studio is tied into six existing Final Cut Pro® editing systems with shared storage. The Euphonix board and a new 5.1 audio room contribute to the studio‘s HD production capability and allow for higher-quality post-production and mastering of DVDs and audio programs.

“The installation at Benny Hinn Ministries represents yet another successful collaboration in bringing a leading ministry into the HD world and helping it confront the challenges associated with this transition,” said TV Magic President Stephen D. Rosen. “The technical team at Benny Hinn Ministries was very involved in the design process, procurement, and deliverable phases, and as a result we were able to assure that the completed systems operated as expected.”
