Optimal environment for SAT.1’s major TV production
PLAZAMEDIA’s Studio 4, with around 700 square meters and added production areas of around 1,000 square meters, offers optimum conditions for the production of the new cooking format. Logistically, the implementation requires a high degree of coordination and planning. The production processes are timed to the minute, so that the complex workflows of the various recording stations in the studio, the pre-kitchen, the green boxes and side studios with a total of 15 cameras are synchronized. Here, the IP-based TV control room supports with its flexible and modular infrastructure to assign the required functions to the respective workstations at any time.
About the new cooking show “Doppelt kocht besser”
Starting in July 2022, Austrian celebrity chef Alexander Kumptner will invite mismatched couples to his new cooking show “Doppelt kocht besser” [Engl. “Double cooks better”] – every Monday through Friday at 7 p.m. on SAT.1. He has the simplest and at the same time most difficult task: He has to like what the candidate duos prepare. In each episode, three couples with a close relationship to each other (couples, parents/children, siblings, friends, etc.) compete against each other. In a blind tasting at the end, Alexander Kumptner and the non-cooking participants decide which creation is successful and which is not. “Doppelt kocht besser” is based on the French show “Cheri(e) c’est moi le chef!” and is produced by Constantin Entertainment on behalf of SAT.1.
Otto Steiner, Managing Director and Producer of Constantin Entertainment: ”We are delighted to be working with PLAZAMEDIA to realize this important and extraordinary production for SAT.1, and have found very professional and reliable partners in our colleagues at PLAZAMEDIA.“
Jens Friedrichs, Chairman of the Management Board of PLAZAMEDIA GmbH: „With the realization of the new SAT.1 cooking show 'Doppelt kocht besser', we are underlining our great expertise in being able to implement elaborate show formats for our customers at short notice and efficiently with our production infrastructure - including the new IP-based control room. At the same time, this current example shows our special ability to realize productions for very different genres and clients thanks to our broad positioning. We would like to thank Constantin Entertainment for the trust they have placed in us and for the excellent cooperation.”
