On the 2017 OneRepublic Honda Civic Tour, Stuart Merser of Vis-a-Vis Video designed a live production solution for video production and IMAG projection based on technology from Blackmagic Design.

On the 2017 OneRepublic Honda Civic Tour, live director and company owner Stuart Merser of Vis-a-Vis Video, along with Jeff Nolte of OCD Labs, designed and specified a live production solution for video production and IMAG projection around recording, switching, routing and monitoring hardware from Blackmagic Design. Situated in a rack, the solution helps Merser create unique live video manipulation of the band's performances, including touring, festival appearances and corporate commitments.

The rack, which has been used to deliver all live video for the U.S. and Asia legs of OneRepublic's tour, features ATEM 2 M/E Broadcast Studio 4K and ATEM 2 M/E Production Studio 4K live production switchers, a Teranex Express standards converter, Smart Videohub 40x40 router and HyperDeck Studio Mini miniaturized broadcast deck.

Everything Merser produces is captured to SD cards using the HyperDeck Studio Mini. "As soon as the show ends, I hit stop and take the SD card to our tour cinematographer, Brody Harper, who edits and posts on social media 20 minutes later," he says. "People demand this immediacy from bands and artists, so being able to translate the live experience across social media channels is a crucial element in any band's tour today."

He adds, "The rack is designed to be powerful and portable. It's a very modular system, with everything we might need for a show; however, we can easily connect to additional hardware components or integrate our system into a venue's existing infrastructure."
