As the on-set graphics supervisor for the third season of Netflix’s House of Cards, one of my challenges was to create a mobile playback system to feed a set that included a network broadcast production facility setup with lots of video monitors displaying live feeds and graphics.
On the House of Cards set, outputs from three cameras, along with multiple graphics feeds, were first fed into a Blackmagic Design Smart Videohub 40 x 40 router. Router outputs were connected to the Teranex 2D for video conversions, with the converted video being delivered to as many as 30 on-set monitors. The Teranex 2D Processor really is a Swiss Army knife when it comes to video signals.
