The Tricaster Mini and the HDMI studio

We strongly recommend against using HDMI-based cameras unless they’re fixed in place or the cables could be stood on. Plus, if the HDMI cable length goes beyond around 5m, you could be asking for trouble with signal drop out. (We’ve even seen problems at 4m).

A little update with very big implications

What’s new in ATEM 6.0? Blackmagic’s support page (https://www.blackmagicdesign.com/uk/support/readme/1496) explains that there are a mere two parts to the update, one of which is the launch of a new GUI.  This is a really nice tweak meaning that you can now run the ATEM Control Panel full screen regardless of resolution.

Early days with the Panasonic GH4

I was trained on professional camcorders and if I’m doing a shoot I always take something like a Panasonic HPX250 – it’s familiar, easy to use and produces wonderful results.
