"Sling has created something that lowers the barrier to entry for full live-switched productions, and it's awesome... Just being able to fit the whole thing in a backpack, and set up and switch a shoot quickly and edit it is a game-changer. If you're running a small production company, it's gonna save you time and money on post-production."
“To me, the new SlingStudio is one of the most innovative products shown at NAB2017, and i'm lucky to have a set to review prior to their official release!”
“I am solo, and live-switching and viewing all of the angles from an iPad mini 4, and monitoring the angles out of the HDMI-out port on the SlingStudio hub.”
“Beyond needing the proper HDMI or SDI cables run to all the cameras I needed a person switching camera angles, another person running an audio mixer board, an expensive piece of livestreaming software, everything set to the same frame rate, and more.
Now there is a better solution for running a multi-cam livestream, by yourself, without any wires, using only an iPad. It is pretty incredible and it is called SlingStudio.”
This video was shot at Sonoma State University’s Green Music Center. Four Panasonic AGUx90 camcorders were mounted on tripods and positioned around the concert hall – one 200 feet away from the SlingStudio unit, one in the balcony, and another 100 feet away. The fourth camcorder was connected via HDMI to the SlingStudio unit onstage, which was also mounted on a tripod. For audio, the XLR input from the house mixer was connected directly to one of the Panasonic camcorders.
After the event, post-production was streamlined by taking the SD card from the SlingStudio unit (which had the four video files plus the live-switched file) and dropping those files directly into Adobe Premiere’s timeline.
This video was shot and streamed live on CodeBlack Life’s Facebook page. Three Panasonic AGUx90 cameras (all positioned about 100 feet from the SlingStudio unit) were mounted on tripods. The fan cam was an iPhone® 6 Plus that was located about 100 feet from the SlingStudio unit. For audio, an XLR mic was connected to each camera.
