BMD Gear Supports Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros

Publish date:

Production company Subtractive Inc. used Blackmagic Design’s ATEM 2 M/E Broadcast Studio 4K, ATEM 1 M/E Broadcast Panel and HyperDeck Studio 12G broadcast recorders as part of a live streaming and IMAG setup for a recent Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros concert.

According to Kyle Schember, CEO of Subtractive, the ATEM 2 M/E Broadcast Studio 4K and ATEM 1 M/E Broadcast Panel were used for live switching during the show. Six cameras were fed into the ATEM 2 M/E Broadcast Studio 4K and two feeds were sent out: one for the live stream and the other for the IMAG screens at the venue. In between sets, one of the program feeds was used for live VJing of graphics and event messaging on LED screens.

Three HyperDeck Studio 12Gs recorded program feeds during the show. “What’s really great is that we can use them to hand an SSD to our client at the end of an event,” Schembler says. “The file is in ProRes already and we don’t have to sit there at the end of the night transcoding or moving files around. We can deliver the program simply by pulling a drive and handing it to our client.”

Schembler adds, “The Blackmagic Design products are so compact and portable. The overall footprint of what is required for live streaming becomes so much smaller, yet the quality is still very high. The ease of transport and the ease of setup means we can bring them pretty much anywhere and broadcast right away.”
