Ionoco has been selected as the preferred technology supplier for a new cross-platform reality show from July August Productions.

The Frame follows eight couples from around the country who have the living space in their own homes reduced to the width of one camera frame.

Ionoco has designed a fully-integrated apartment for the format that features built-in redundancy and a compliance delay and provides functionality for switching between PTZ video cameras, applying graphical data and controlling lighting and audio.

The system is configurable to meet the budgets of different territories.

Avi Armoz, the chief executive of the show’s distributor Armoza Formats said: “The Frame is an innovative and original new format reality show and ionoco’s technology is key to realizing its potential.”

In the studio, Ionoco’s fully-automated system will receive, cut and mix up to eight simultaneous video feeds and provide overlay graphics.

Computers running Ionoco’s proprietary software platform Ionologic control the system through a bespoke user interface.

The Frame is at MIPTV this week.
