Today, I worked on testing my new live broadcasting setup. The technology is maturing and I hope to be able to do weekly broadcasts. My Livestream page is livestream.com/urbanhawks. Follow me to be notified of broadcasts.
This year my live broadcast technology stack includes:
- Blackmagic Production Camera 4K EF
- Røde Stereo Microphone
- Various Canon Lenses and teleconverters, including a 600mm L II f/4 lens
- ikan V-mount Batteries and Switronix Jetpack for Power
- Teradek Vidiu Encoder with a SDI to HDMI converter
- Teradek Live:Air iPad Production Suite running on an iPad Mini 3
- iPhone 6 for LTE G4 connectivity and a mobile WiFi network
Think of all this as a mobile news van shrunk down to the size of a backpack.
