Ultra Music Festival Live Broadcast Filmed with URSA Mini PRO and URSA Mini 4.6K

Blackmagic Design has today announced that its URSA Mini 4.6K and URSA Mini Pro cameras were used to produce a live YouTube broadcast during this year's Ultra Music Festival (UMF). For the first time at the UMF, DJs on the Main Stage were captured and broadcast in stunning 4K. 

 
For the nineteenth edition of the world's premier electronic music festival, boasting elite DJs, unparalleled productions and located in the beautiful city of Miami some of the biggest performers in electronic dance music (EDM) played to a sell-out crowd of 165,000 people. Another 7.5 million fans shared in the excitement and energy online via the Ultra Live stream presented by UMFTV and produced by NOMOBO. 
 
The live stream broadcast on YouTube was mixed with interviews, backstage footage and graphics and was further integrated with social media platforms. 'That helped UMF to generate more than 42 million mentions across social media - making it the most tweeted about electronic music event in history," begins Constantijn van Duren of NOMOBO. "The set performances on the main stage were all captured in 4K and available to stream on YouTube the following day." 
 
All of NOMOBO's fly-packs for the festival were based on a core of Blackmagic Design ATEM 1 M/E & 2 M/E Production Studio 4K switchers, complemented with Smart Videohub 4K routers, HyperDeck Studio Pro recorders, SmartScope Duo and SmartView 4K monitors. Importantly for UMF Miami, NOMOBO selected the URSA Mini 4.6K PL and URSA Mini Pro cameras for acquisition. 
 
"We opted for the URSA Mini 4.6K PL mount bodies along with the URSA Studio Viewfinder for the Ultra Live studio setup while the brand new URSA Mini Pro was used by two roaming ENG teams who covered the capture of interviews and backstage reports," said van Duren. 
 
A 12G SMPTE fiber system enabled the team to feed the URSA Mini 6G-SDI output back to NOMOBO control rooms and MCR for live switching and recording. The same finer setup also provided a return feed for ATEM Camera Control as well as all talkback and tally. 
 
One of NOMOBO's roaming teams captured the live stand-ups and backstage interviews with hosts Andrea Helfrich and Will Best. "Connecting the URSA Mini Pro to the ATEM video infrastructure gave us immediate control over the camera, tally and comms and enabled our camera operators to communicate with the live stream director," explains van Duren. 
 
From a simple ergonomic point of view, the ability to work either shoulder-mounted or run-and-gun with the side grip in a challenging environment such as a festival shoot gave us all the handling options they could wish for, according to van Duren. "And with the addition of built in ND filters on the URSA Mini Pro, our crews were able to cover activity all around the festival in all imaginable lighting circumstance from bright daylight to night time, both front and backstage." 
 
Ultimately, it is the ability of the URSA Mini lines to produce beautiful pictures which has van Duren raving. "Opting for the URSA Mini affords us ultimate flexibility when it comes to lens choice. The fact we can use fast, high quality PL glass with the URSA Mini and shoot in 4.6K on a live broadcast is incredible," he concludes. "That means we can offer clients the highest possible image quality and integrate that into a live events environment alongside tally, comms and camera control provides ultimate flexibility."

Studio Technologies Revs Up Bristol Motor Speedway with Dante Intercom Capability Posted: 25/09/2017
Bristol Motor Speedway - a massive 2.5-square-mile complex that hosts up to 165,000 spectators at events such as NASCAR races, monster truck events and college football games - has cut days from its install and setup schedule with its recent upgrade to Dante Audio-over-Ethernet networking. Nashville-based professional audio equipment and services company Spectrum Sound, Inc., provides sound reinforcement for the facility, along with updating and maintaining its vast audio system. When Spectrum realized it needed to introduce a completely flexible comms system, while also taking advantage of the existing fiber-based IP infrastructure, it turned to Studio Technologies and its Model 371 Dante-enabled Intercom Beltpacks and Model 5422 Dante Intercom Audio Engine.
