With close links to many leading manufacturers who have been keen to support the live show we operate a completely inclusive kit list rotating, for example, from Vinten to Libec, Panasonic to JVC and Autocue to Autoscript . Our three camera feeds and audio inputs are fed to the Autocue “Production Suite in a Box”, which is the heart of the studio and as it’s not due for release until IBC is going through immense development, you can read their monthly tech blog on the next page. We are self confessed “not lighting experts”. We have access to some of the best studio lighting solutions in the industry from Cirrolite and as is our way it was rigged up to get us going in a fashion. Let’s say at the moment it’s practical, it provides light! Over the coming shows we’ll have lighting experts in the studio to change, tweak, replace lights to get the best result – explaining why, how and the cost implications of every option. Look at the live show as an evolving studio project with each show using different kit and making better use of the core equipment. Why stream LIVE you might ask? We want to cover all bases here; yes a pre-recorded show would certainly make life less stressful but is that what you want to watch? Our live show page incorporates a chat screen and twitter feeds so as to encourage viewer interaction. This was certainly the case in show one with most guests being asked questions from “how much”, “does it work with....” with one even asking Steffan from Polecam to jump up and down on our Peli case (as if throwing it off the building at the start of the show wasn’t enough!). So from studio set-up, ingest, production switching, output and stream the show incorporates all broadcast kit as well as being used in between monthly shows for our shorter recorded product and technology showcases.
