Clients have recently asked to have us better explain what a "Second" Vision Mix really details... and why it's important.
Essentially, having a "Second" or a "Third" and even a "Fourth" Vision Mix - can many times make or break a Broadcast/Production (from and aesthetic and professional standpoint). Why? Simply put - each Mix is just that... it is a creative choice made by the TD (Technical Director), Director, or in certain circumstances, the Client - as to what image/camera/element will be displayed, Live, within that mix.
At HD1 Productions, we're proud to announce some exciting additions to our live-video unit and on-site post-production vehicles.
For our Technical Director position (TD), we've installed the Marshall V-R1042-IMD-TE4U monitor - a 10" Dual Rack-Mount Monitor, which provides for fabulously sharp images both in Preview and Program.
For direct camera monitoring, we've installed three (3) of the Marshall V-R842DP-AFHD monitors - a 8.4" Dual-Screen Rack-Mount Monitor for the exceptional monitoring (by both our Technical Director [TD] and Director) of the principle 6 Camera Input/Positions.
For our Director, and Graphics Unit - we've added four (4) of the Marshal V-MD173 monitors - a 17" Rack-Mount Monitor - which carries both Preview/Program feeds... as well as a second vision mix (if needed).
It's exciting to see how technology continues to evolve, and allow for television/web production (either from a Satellite Broadcast, to a Live Multi-Camera Stream) to take up less and less space... passing on that savings to our clients... as well as breaking the limitations of where Live Television can go!
