Blackmagic Products Used on Fall Out Boy’s MANIA World Tour

PostTue Dec 12, 2017 2:02 pm

Blackmagic Design today announced that Grammy-nominated American rock band Fall Out Boy’s worldwide MANIA tour is using a complete Blackmagic Design live production workflow for IMAG and AV. Blackmagic Design’s Micro Studio Camera 4Ks and Teranex AV standards converters are being used for image capture and signal conversion on the tour, along with several other products, including an ATEM 2 M/E Broadcast Studio 4K live production switcher, MultiView 16 monitor, Smart Videohub 40x40 and Smart Videohub CleanSwitch 12x12 routers.

Since the release of their 2005 breakthrough album, From Under the Cork Tree, Fall Out Boy has been topping the charts with hit songs, such as “Sugar, We’re Goin Down,” “Dance, Dance” and “Centuries,” and they received a Best New Artist nomination at the 2006 Grammy Awards. The band’s upcoming album MANIA is set to be released on January 19, 2018, and the band embarked on the MANIA tour in October 2017 in support of the album, along with opening acts Jaden Smith and blackbear.

Production Designer Robb Jibson of Chicago production design firm So Midwest, Inc. designed the video setup which includes 10 Micro Studio Camera 4Ks on the stage and center walkway for point of view (POV) shots, along with three Blackmagic Studio Camera 4Ks throughout the upper sections of each venue to capture wider, more encompassing views of the stage. All the cameras are fed into two Mac Pros on the engineering racks backstage, which are then fed into a Teranex AV to convert the feeds to HD‑SDI.
