Project Overview

The production was shot with 3 Robotic PTZ broadcast cameras in the Hollywood theater, plus 3 Robotic PTZ cameras in New York and 1 camera in Alabama. BMG’s award-winning entertainment Director, Todd Mason, directed the broadcast from the Academy Museum, and signals were sent back to BMG REMI Broadcast Hub in Las Vegas from the three locations. BMG used 1 LU 800 at the Academy Museum, 1 LU 800 in New York and 1 LU 300 in Alabama for encoding. For decoding BMG used 2 LU 4000’s at the BMG Las Vegas Hub and 1 LU 4000 at the Academy Museum that provided the directors multiview and program return for the audience’s monitor. The Broadcast Hub used 2 LU 610 to send out the multiview and return program feeds.
