Insomnia Event filmed with Polecam camera crane

Polecam Camera Crane

This event required multiple shows output live for web broadcast and location screens. The FS5 worked brilliantly, as it can be broken down enabling control from the bottom of the rig. I powered the camera via a voltage regulator at the head of the Pole, and output at the required 720 60p via the HDSDI for web broadcast. This camera can also record to 4k and full HD. The setup was a studio/chat show format, with the three commentators firstly giving a 'pre-match analysis' of the Hearthstone games to be played, then the game taking over followed by the studio going live once again for the post-match analysis. My role was to add a sense of movement and polish to the programme in addition to the other two operated fixed position PXW-FS7 cameras.
