Equipment


I pride myself in the quality and variety of my gear. Changing technology thrills me. I am also looking to innovate, and expand my capabilities. Years of experience have taught me to thoughtfully evaluate my needs.

Switcher Units


Though my partnership with Penn's Hill Media, I have 2 portable switcher units, both based around Blackmagic Design (BMD) products.


First Unit

Mounted in a 6U rack case

  • BMD ATEM Television Studio switcher with 1 M/E control panel
  • BMD Hyperdeck Studio SSD record deck
  • BMD Smartview Duo dual 8" LCD monitors
  • KanexPro HAECOAX Audio Deembedder (for monitoring program audio)
  • Custom patch panel based on L-Com components
  • A stand a lone Ethernet router for connecting all of the components & control laptop
  • A large amount of signal converters and scalers.


Second Unit

Divided between 2 rack cases, a 6u and a 4u

  • BMD ATEM 1 M/E Switcher
  • BMD Hyperdeck Studio Pro SSD record deck
  • BMD SmartScope Duo dual 8" LCD monitors and scopes
  • Clear-Com 2-channel rackmount base station
  • Cisco rackmount router
  • Custom patch panel based on L-Com components


Our switcher is built around the Blackmagic Design ATEM 1M/E Production Studio 4K, which has 10 SDI inputs and multiple program and AUX outputs. In use we usually use a Panasonic 26" monitor for the multi-view and have scopes on Preview & Program. We also have 2-channel Clear-Com and SSD record decks, and we have CCU's for our Panasonic cameras.


We have a variety of signal converters / scalers for getting signal inputs from client laptops and etc and for feeding program or AUX outputs to projector for IMAG.


We do a fair bit of live streaming and can feed program output into a laptop for encoding and streaming on simple jobs, or to a dedicated encoding appliance (Teradek Cube).


For video roll-ins we use PlaybackPro on a Macbook Pro, with a striped Raid 0 drive used to hold content and ensure playback without any hesitations.


We also have a simpler 1-road-case version of this switcher that we use for simpler jobs, such as a single- or two-camera shoot with a single slide input that makes it easy to set up and strike quickly and takes up a smaller footprint, but lacks some of the advanced features of the other switcher.
