The production, “Dudu Fisher Live In Concert from Israel,” was recorded by Broadcast Video, utilizing that company’s special HD flypack system. Audio was captured by a special multi-track system operated by an English-speaking Israeli crew.
A total of eight Sony Cine-Alta cameras were used in the production recorded in Israel’s Beit Sha’en National Park. A special and extensive lighting setup was put in place to allow the television audience to appreciate the ruins surrounding the performing area.
