Camera Corps to show expanded rental range at Media Production Show
The new Camera Corps Q-Pac modular video production system
GTC sponsor Camera Corps will be at this year's Media Production Show, 12–13 June, at Olympia, London, exhibiting on stand 534.
"We specialise in providing remote camera solutions and expert crew for reality television productions as well as very large-scale sports, entertainment and live events," says Camera Corps' new Managing Director, David Sisson. "Our focus for the show is on informing our customers of the many ways we can assist them to acquire exciting and unusual content in an efficient manner. We will also demonstrate the wider array of equipment we now offer.
"Among the latest examples of innovative Camera Corps products on show will be a fixed rig using the latest Qx robotic cameras, the UHD/HD SMPTE MAX signal transportation system and, at the heart of the fixed rig, the new Q-Pac production system.
"Building on Camera Corps' long experience in supplying state-of-the art remote multi-camera systems, Q-Pac is designed for the smaller production where costs and space are constrained. It is a modular system packaged within a 2 x 20U rolling case which can integrate up to 20 incoming camera feeds. Feeds can be monitored and logged using a powerful combination of an Evertz EQT router and VIP multiviewers, then recorded on a server system such as a Simply Live ViBox or an EVS XT3.
"Any recorded footage can then be transferred directly from the server to edit workstations, thus removing the need to ingest multiple record disks. Q-Pac can further be augmented with the addition of Pix 270i video recorders. A DirectOut M.1k2 MADI router and Lawo V_Pro8 audio/video processors provide a compact solution to handle all audio de-embedding, routing and embedding tasks efficiently, ensuring all sources are smoothly directed to where they need to be. A DirectOut Andiamo stage box and Yamaha DM1000 audio desk complete the audio package. Other audio desks are available if a client has a particular preference."
"Q-Pac as a whole is designed to be a flexible, compact and cost-effective solution for quick deployment with minimal crewing in small to medium productions."
