Blackmagic Design Captures Melbourne Symphony Orchestra

PostThu Jun 22, 2017 12:40 pm

Blackmagic Design today announced that award-winning singer-songwriter Kate Miller-Heidke's performance with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra was captured in 4K using its Micro Studio Camera 4Ks and Studio Camera 4Ks. In order to broadcast the performance, Australian television production company AvocaBlue built a flypack using Blackmagic Design’s ATEM 1 M/E Production Studio 4K live production switcher, Smart Videohub 20x20 router, HyperDeck Studio Pro broadcast deck and more.

In early 2017, Kate Miller-Heidke, a popular Australian singer-songwriter and actress, held a series of concerts with orchestras throughout Australia. The Melbourne Symphony Orchestra was one of her first stops, and the accompanying broadcast was produced by Toby Parkinson and Technical Director Benjamin Doudney and aired on the Foxtel Arts television channel. During post production, Blackmagic Design’s DaVinci Resolve Studio was used for editing and color correction by Auckland’s Department of Post.

To capture the broadcast, AvocaBlue used five Micro Studio Camera 4Ks and two Studio Camera 4Ks, which were all connected to the ATEM switchers via optical fiber. The Micro Studio Camera 4Ks were placed throughout the orchestra to capture up close shots of the musicians and Kate Miller-Heidke, with the two larger Studio Camera 4Ks positioned front of house for wide shots. AvocaBlue also used an ATEM 1 M/E Production Studio 4K and ATEM 1 M/E Broadcast Panel for live switching, ATEM Camera Control for CCU control of the seven cameras, a Smart Videohub 20x20 router, ATEM Talkback Converter 4K to provide optical fiber distribution to the cameras, multiple HyperDeck Studio Pro for SSD recording the line cut and selected cameras and a SmartView 4K and SmartScope 4K for monitoring and testing in 4K.
