Interaction between talent and production crew is achieved by presenting the live camera feed to a MacBook Air M1 laptop as a standard webcam to be used by any video conferencing software, such as Zoom, Microsoft Teams or Google Meet. This allows for a low latency communication link between participants that does not hinder the natural flow of the conversation. A teleprompter is used to display the video conferencing window from the laptop, so that the talent can see the other members of the call, while looking into the camera lens.
All electronics are assembled into a single rugged Pelican case that can be easily connected by a non technical user. All cables and the patch panel are clearly labeled, making it easy for the user to assemble. The customer’s existing in-ear monitoring and microphone system can be used, or bluetooth earbuds for in-ear monitoring.
The kit includes everything needed for shooting; a tripod and head for the camera and teleprompter, 3-point LED light panels with stands, and all the cabling necessary. No network configuration is necessary on the talent side, only one supplied Ethernet cable needs to be connected to the home network.
