I do a lot of Red multicam shooting in live theaters in Sydney Australia, and have gotten this to a science the last couple of years.
I am now being asked to do a live cut from the Reds, and microwave the signal about 4 blocks so it can be streamed live into cinemas around the country. Live mixing and transfer of 5.1 audio as well...
On the surface, no problem! Whack an HD-SDI mixer in there, hire a company to microwave the signal and done.
But it gets more complicated quickly. Initially we'll be limited to 720P until Epic comes out, there is no CCU so we will be calling for manual iris pulls etc. The audio signal will need to be delayed to match vision, I'm thinking by up to 6 frames by the time it is mixed...
The O/B companies will want nothing to do with me so I'll need to dry hire or bring in a producer to coordinate everything...
Does anyone out there have any advice or past experience for me?
