Certainly may not approach professional grade, but fascinating what you'll be able to do with up to eight iOS devices recording an event.

Interesting. Hopefully the person selected to be the Stage has a 64gig iPhone!

Kinda like using Teradek Cubes and Telestream Wirecast but that would be live switching.

[Andrew Kimery] "Interesting. Hopefully the person selected to be the Stage has a 64gig iPhone!"

That does point out a limit with the initial workflow on the ’Stage’ device. Shooting 1080p on the iPhone, the capacity of a nearly empty 64 GB iPhone is about 6 hours. So using 8 iPhones certainly sets a low limit to the event time! If however, only 2 or 3 iPhones were used, you might record 2 hours from each which is very useful. This assumes it uses the same compression or APIs in iOS libraries. Apparently a future offering of the product will include a remote server so we’ll need to wait to see how that alleviates recording time constraints although with trade-offs to transmit many GBs of data.
