We are pleased to provide a solution free of limitations that is as light-footed, mobile and flexible as the producers that use it.” The base UNIV OB production flight-pack configuration includes four portable military-grade racks and can be scaled to meet the needs of the user. Multi-rack configurations are customized based on positions and workflows. The complete solution includes: • A slow-motion server with ISO recording • A 1.5 ME 24-button video switcher and a built-in 37” LED screen for multiviewer outputs • A two-channel 3D graphics system and a built-in dual screen for graphics operations. • A complete IFB and intercom system • A 16-channel digital audio board and remote audio receiver rack for audio production • Optional live streaming encoders and clip servers.
