AT&T relies on HD Flypak with Broadcast Pix Slate 3000
AT&T is using two new mobile production systems featuring the Broadcast Pix Slate 3000 live integrated production system.
Delivered in October 2008 by Los Angeles-based systems integrator TV Pro Gear, the new HD Flypak mobile production systems are used to produce and stream HD programming live to tens of thousands of employees.
While the Slate 3000 can handle up to 18 inputs and features PixButtons to identify each source, AT&T maintains a four-camera setup. In one configuration, a single operator controls three Panasonic AK-HC1500G box cameras with Fujinon HAS18x7.6BMD-DSE lenses. A second configuration uses the Panasonic cameras as studio cameras. In addition, a Panasonic AJ-HDX900 camcorder is available for studio or ENG use.
