Oprah Winfrey Network using DSLR Video for Network Series

The Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN) has released a teaser for their new series “Master Class” on their website and it shows that full production of the series appears to be done completely on Canon DSLR’s with Redrock Micro support rails, matte boxes, Follow Focus and their new EVF – The full teaser in MP4 format can be downloaded and viewed from the OWN website at http://goo.gl/2sUIm

In QT player, you can clearly see the setups at TC 1:30 and 2:29.

The camera at timecode 2:39 also appears to be using the Redrock Micro EVF for the primary camera.

The image quality is outstanding as I originally saw this teaser on cable with a HDTV and went searching for the web version of the teaser.  The image quality more than held up to “broadcast” standards.  I’m curious as to their post production workflow as well.

With all the money she has at her disposal, this is a major announcement to prove DSLR video is really ready for broadcast.
