Blackmagic Design Workflow Used for Coachella and Stagecoach

PostFri Jun 28, 2024 3:11 pm

Blackmagic Design today announced that Chicago based production company Media Stream Wave used a Blackmagic Design workflow comprised of 40 Blackmagic URSA Broadcast G2 cameras, 14 ATEM Constellation 8K live production switchers and more as part of its work for the 2024 Coachella and Stagecoach music festivals, produced by Springboard Productions. Media Stream Wave’s Principal Azuolas Sinkevicius supplied two production trucks equipped with Blackmagic Design gear, which serviced all eight stages at Coachella and four stages at Stagecoach with IMAG and broadcasting to streaming and social media platforms.

While the workflow for each stage varied depending on size and location, Media Stream Wave utilized multiple fiber workflows for its work on both festivals, consisting of the URSA Broadcast G2s equipped with Blackmagic Camera Fiber Converters and Blackmagic Studio Fiber Converters using SMPTE cabling for video, audio, power, talkback, and tally over long distances. The cameras fed into the ATEM Constellation 8Ks, with ATEM Camera Control Panels used for shading. Two ATEM 4 M/E Advanced Panels, six ATEM 2 M/E Advanced Panels, and an ATEM 1 M/E Advanced Panel were used to control all the ATEM Constellation 8Ks.

“Our client base wants to see a more cinematic result for these live shows, so that’s what we’ve been moving toward with the help of Blackmagic Design gear,” said Sinkevicius. “We’ve been able to spearhead that initiative with Coachella, and we’re very happy with the Blackmagic Design workflow we’ve built because it’s such a solid system, from beautiful images to low latency to extreme reliability during these high stakes productions.”
