For this year's Ultra Music Festival (UMF), some of the biggest performers in electronic dance music (EDM) played to a sold-out crowd of 165,000 in Miami. Another 7.5 million viewers shared in the excitement online via the Ultra Live stream presented by UMFTV and produced by NOMOBO. The live stream broadcast on YouTube was mixed with interviews, backstage footage and graphics and was further integrated with social media platforms.

NOMOBO's flypacks for the festival were based on a core of Blackmagic Design ATEM 1 M/E and 2 M/E Production Studio 4K switchers, complemented with Smart Videohub 4K routers, HyperDeck Studio Pro recorders, SmartScope Duo and SmartView 4K monitors.

NOMOBO executive producer Constantijn van Duren explains, "We opted for the URSA Mini 4.6K PL mount bodies along with the URSA Studio Viewfinder for the Ultra Live studio setup, while the brand new URSA Mini Pro was used by two roaming ENG teams who covered the interviews and backstage reports."

A 12G SMPTE fiber system enabled the team to feed the URSA Mini 6G-SDI output back to NOMOBO control rooms and MCR for live switching and recording.
