New multi-camera video production flypack takes flight

'Flight' from Red House Streaming is built around Sony cameras and Dante audio, and offers an affordable HD option for live events that can also support larger REMI productions when bridged with the company’s Spark HD trailer 

IP production and streaming solutions provider Red House Streaming has launched a new video production flypack for multi-camera location shoots. ‘Flight’ is designed for easy set-up and quick deployment, and offers a professional HD production option for live broadcast or streaming of small-to-medium sized location shoots, said the company.

The rack-based Flight system supports four Sony HDC-2570 3-CCD HD cameras with Canon 20x lenses on a base level, with the company targeting the product for live productions such as corporate events, concerts, music festivals, and Tier 2/3 sports.

The all-IP audio workflow is said to simplify routing and distribution for up to 40 channels of Dante audio, with direct connectivity to a 32-channel Calrec Brio audio console, Unity radios, and an RTS ADAM matrix intercom with OMNEO and RVON connectivity. When used with Spark HD or a separate transmission rack, Flight’s edge routing capabilities encodes video to IP with SRT transport capabilities for low-latency content delivery. The complete video production flypack workflow also includes a 72×72 Ross Video NK router (with an NK-IPS network bridge), Evertz DreamCatcher replay servers, and choice of a Ross Video Carbonite or Blackmagic ATEM Constellation production switcher.

“Not every project calls for a production truck or trailer. Flight will take you wherever you want to go for less money and on short notice,” said Kurt Heitmann, CEO, CP Communications and Red House Streaming. “We have pre-built Flight systems in house and ready to go, and we can quickly accommodate available gear options that plug into its architecture before shipping. Flight can accommodate PTZs, POVs and RF cameras in the same flypack to provide the director with a broader array of camera angles and shot selections.”

For standard four-camera flypacks, Flight includes a portable video control console with four Sony RCP-1500 control panels, monitors and other equipment for easy access and control in the field.

Aaron Segarra, VP of sales, CP Communications, added, “Flight is an ideal solution for the on-site production needs of our local clients in Florida, and is built to interoperate with the live streaming production workflow at our Red House Streaming Production Center in St. Petersburg (Florida). However, Flight’s powerful and professional infrastructure is also built with the national production community in mind, and we are excited to share it with broadcasters and live streaming event producers across the country.”
