The Live TV Production course has started using the multi camera studio with the Tricaster TCX-300 as part of their Certificate IV qualification. The studio camera setup uses three JVC GY-HD250 broadcast studio cameras on Miller dolly wheels and is switched live using the Tricaster vision mixer. Content can be recorded straight into any editing program via Blackmagic, recorded locally as high quality MPEGs and broadcast LIVE all at the same time with chroma-keying, super bars and in-built graphics. But the studio isn't just for our Live TV students. The Metro Screen Hire & Post Production team can help you work on a production plan to utilise this amazing studio space for your webisode, music video, television series or live panel event. Call 9356 1827 or email to make talk about your project.
