Sports Mobile Studio

The SPORTS MOBILE STUDIO has been designed for a customer who live footage of motor racing, the configuration has been agreed in accordance with its needs, but may be modified in order to achieve your ideal configuration.
We describe this version that uses 2 of the NewTek TriCaster, a 860 with 8 inputs used as main video director, dedicated to filming and sending the signal via cable or satellite and a 460 with 4 inputs dedicated to the management of transmission and streaming on the web on social networks, also having a double TriCaster in the case of failure of one can be used as an alternative the other.
We recommend for sporting events that require even the slow motion (eg. football matches) instead of a TriCaster 460 a Tricaster 4800 that has the function of moviola with 4 slow motion.

In SPORTS MOBILE STUDIO are installed:

  • 2 Smart Video HUB 16x16 video matrix of Blackmagic Design (located on the left side). They take as input the video from all cameras involved in the shootings and send them to all 2 TriCaster, if there are problems while you are on air, via the matrix can immediately switch all cameras from a TriCaster to another.
  • 2 ATEM Studio Converter 2 Blackmagic Design, to connect via optic fiber up to 8 cameras SDI or HDMI (4 + 4) , which can be positioned up to 45 km away, in the 2 apparatuses is also built-in a talkback intercom for communication between cameramen and director. The apparatus is placed in the middle of SPORTS MOBILE STUDIO.
  • 1 equalized analog video distributor (1x20 Kramer VM-1021) that is connected to a Beta recorder (located on the right side).
  • 1 audio mixer (Mixer Audio Ultrazone ZMX8210 - Behringer).
  • 1 solid state memory (SSD) recorder: HyperDeck Studio 2 (Blackmagic Design) to make a backup of the video of the race can put at the disposal of the judges in the case of infringements or accidents. The judges have another HyperDeck Studio on which to place the SSD to review the movie in another room.
  • 1 Open Gear rack frame by Blackmagic Design with 20 slot that accommodates various cards with different functions between them (located in the lower part of the direction). In this configuration, the first card is a distributor and clock reference to synchronize the two Blackmagic Matrix and the two TriCaster to have them in phase in case of a sudden exchange from one to the other TriCaster. The second card is a converter SDI / Analog to use a tape recorder in Beta format. The third is a conversion card Analog / SDI in order to use the reportage that are supplied in the Beta Standard. The fourth card is the UpDownCross which is a signal converter from SDI HD to SDI SD and vice versa and from PAL to NTSC and vice versa.
  • Conversion video formats from SD to HD, Conversions Up / down / cross, NTSC / PAL outputs, converts 720p to 1080i or vice versa, Auto SD / HD Switching, Low jitter SDI.
  • The sound diffusion is performed using 2 speakers Bose (Companion 2 Series 3).
  • 2 big TV/monitor (32" LED Samsung UE32F5000) are matched to the TriCaster 860 while the third monitor, the smallest, (Monitor 20" Fujitsu BV20T-6) with articulated arm is matched to the TriCaster 460, In the event of failure of the TriCaster 860, using a HDMI switch (located in the central part of the director), you can connect the 2 big monitors to TriCaster 460.

The big monitor on the left is used as the multiview TriCaster 860 and via the switch, you can connect it directly to the TriCaster 460 also.
