Hey guys, I’ve done the pre-requisite searching but couldn’t find anything for this particular situation.
We have a client who wants to produce live-streaming events in a theater. They want a multi-camera HD system where one person can remotely control each camera (rotation,zoom,focus,aperture, etc). That person would be at a switcher to cut the angles. The client supposedly has their own system for streaming, so we are only responsible for giving them the final video feed. There would also be mixed audio from a soundboard going to the streaming equipment as well.
I’ve already thought of all the problems that make this difficult, starting with the fact that I think it would be too much for one person to control all the cameras and the switching at the same time. I’ve worked on high-end concert productions so I know what all goes into it, but our clients are looking for a “turn-key” solution that could be controlled by one person.
We’ve done a couple live-streaming events but its not our expertise, which is why I’m here asking you guys for advice on the following items.
1. Advice on a remote-control system for multiple cameras.
2. A switcher that could also do titles and graphics, as well as integrating the audio feed before the streaming equipment.
I’ve looked at the Tri-caster systems for switching which look great, but maybe a bit overkill for this production. Money will be a concern at some point, but for now I just need to have some options and they can decide if they can afford it or not.
Any advice or thoughts on any aspect of this situation would be greatly appreciated…
