Building a portable TV studio – part 1

I’m building a portable television studio based around the blackmagic design television studio. This is a pretty cool piece of technology released late last year and it’s also a bit of a game changer. For around $1000 it handles multi camera live broadcast duties and also encodes h264 files for the web as you film. I picked up a rack mount hard case today which means I can start installing the gear.

Here’s a shot of the connections to hook it all up.
