Mi Broadcast Delivers For Procam Projects

News Image
Mi Broadcast has announced the supply of 13 Ereca Cam Racers and 5 Stage Racers to Procam Projects, a division of Procam. Procam Projects plans, supports and executes large-scale productions in collaboration with some of the UK's top production companies. 

Cam Racer is an advanced fibre optic camera control system. It is the first system to provide two 12G-SDI and two 3G-SDI video paths from camera to base, making it suitable for use on Procam's entire fleet of cameras. Other features include internal audio mixer for talent headsets and internal web browser for signal control and set up.

Group Technical Director, Dan Studley, said: "This investment enables us to deliver a multicamera Cine style shoot and to continue to push the boundaries in future 4K cine music/fixed rig/entertainment productions. We can now offer a live cine workflow to any production." 

Stage Racer is an ultra flexible multi signal broadcast fibre link. The 1U 19" frame can transport 12 3G/HD-SDI videos, 16 audios each way, Gbit data, MADI, bidi AES3 (Riedel panels), Genlock, GPIOs and serial data, thus streamlining Procam productions with quicker rig time and allowing the coverage of longer distances between camera and gallery. A key feature of Stage Racer is the ability to change "on the fly", the direction of individual 3G/HD-SDI channels via the internal web browser.

Studley added: "Procam Projects is constantly looking at emerging technologies and will invest where appropriate to provide our clients with innovative solutions. We worked with Mi Broadcast to invest in newer technology that facilitates up to 4K."

Procam's investment included SMPTE 311 camera cable and tactical fibre cable with Neutrik QUAD connectors supplied and manufactured by Mi Broadcast's sister company, Fibre4TV Ltd.
