Hello, I am preparing a 2,000 word media report for the final year of my Degree in Professional Broadcast Techniques (Assignment hand in is two weeks away!!).
I have decided to do a feasibility study for a fictitious music venue that will have vertical and horizontal rails from ACS (http://www.aerialcamerasystems.com/tracking-camera-systems) as well as some cameras in fixed positions. These cameras will go to a video gallery room so the performance can be edited and broadcast live or recorded for later editing and DVD/Streaming sale (like what U2 did with their Rose bowl performance on YouTube). Like the kit in these trucks (http://www.arena-tv.com/obtrucks.html).
I come from a Music Production background and I CANNOT get my head round all these cameras.
I have selected 3 that seem good. The Sony F55, the Arri Alexa and the Blackmagic 4K Production Camera.
Can those three cameras do all what I have described? Can they be operated remotely? Are there better cameras for this particular job?
I got an email quote from CamCat who suggested their Calibri system but it's 350,000 Euros!!!
I guess I will also need to consider switchers, HD decks etc??
