The flight case used was an Odyssey FZER6 that we had previously used for our multi-feed to provide video and audio to multiple sources. We repurposed the case as we were trying to keep a small footprint and this provided us with a sturdy base.
As mentioned above, we repurposed a case that we previously owned. On our next build, we will be going with the SKB Injection Molded 4U ISeries Studio Flyer, or the Gator Case Lightweight Molded 6U Rack Case depending on if we will be implementing instant replay or not.
We all know the ATEM Mini's are known to get a little warm at times, so we added several fans to keep the case cool. We installed the Rockville RRF4 on the back to pull air out, and two computer fans under the ATEM's sliding shelf, pushing air into the unit from the bottom and up and out the back. HEADS UP! THESE FANS ARE A BIT NOISY. We often broadcast from an arena or stadium that is very loud to begin with so we don't mind the noise, but if you are on a quiet set, this may be an issue.
To give us access to the ATEM we installed the device on a sliding shelf. This shelf also has enough depth to install fans on the underside without taking up too much space. We did have to drill holes in the shelf so the fans could provide adequate airflow.
In our build we used quite a few Blackmagic Design products. Our cameras at the moment that we use for our smaller productions are HDMI, so we have been using an ATEM Mini Extreme ISO in our setup. Since we are running HDMI we will need HDMI to SDI & SDI to HDMI converters to work properly. If you will only be using instant replay and not running graphics you will only need one Bi-Directional & SDI to HDMI converter per Hyperdeck. If you will be running graphics with transparent backgrounds you will need 2x SDI to HDMI converters per Hyperdeck for your key and fill.
To run the instant replay system, Hyperslow, we will be using an iPad that syncs up with our Hyperdeck's timecode to track our replayable moments. This software seems to be pretty lightweight and can most likely run on older iPads as well.
We also installed a monitor to view our live stream. The color profile and brightness on the monitor are not the best, but at the price point and size, it's perfect for monitoring our broadcasts and it is good enough to color match our cameras.
We used the same bracket to hold our monitor in place, as well as our iPad. This mounting bracket is extremely versatile and durable. Mostly made out of metal, this mount has held up for quite some time now. It is capable of holding fairly large monitors as well and with the right hardware, you can mount your monitor directly to it.
To power everything up we used a Cyberpower surge protector. This strip provides outlets on the front and back and takes up minimal space. Attached is a 15ft power cord, so no need for extensions.
To make sure all of our devices can talk to each other nicely, we use a Netgear 8-Port Gigabit switch.
We are constantly upgrading our builds to suit our needs. If you are looking for assistance in building a video production rack that suits your needs, feel free to contact us. We look forward to hearing your feedback.
