On November 15, 2018, the crew at Focal Point Productions was hired to record aTedX Talk style annual meeting for medical institution.

Originally this was supposed to be "Live to tape" and record each camera ISO for editing. But at the last minute (due to an unexpected snow and ice storm) the client asked about live streaming - which we did.

Our team of of five people used our NewTek TriCaster TC1 with:
1 - Canon C300 - static wide shot of the stage (unsure what lens)
2 - Canon C200 - CU of presenter (70-200mm)
3 - Canon C200 - audience cutaways and a profile CU of presenter (70-200mm)
4 - Canon C200 - on a Kessler Second Shooter, on the ground low angle looking up at the stage (wide angle lens, unsure exactly on the lens)
5 - NewTek PTZ camera via NDI - back stage looking out at audience with presenter in forground
6 - Canon C100 - in back corner of the room by the TriCaster. HDMI out of the camera to a BM HDMI-SDI converter then into a SDI Connect Spark (NDI into the TriCaster). (11-16mm)
7 - Power point slides with audio - HDMI out of a laptop into Connect Spark

Audio and lighting done by a 3rd party vendor. We supplied two 65" TVs.

ME4 and Mix 4 on the TriCaster fed power point slides to the 2 TVs.



Corporate Town Hall Meetings

Focal Point Productions was recently hired by Sheppard Pratt Health System to live stream their quarterly town hall meetings.  The Towson, MD based health system has offices and affiliates throughout the state, - and they wanted those employees to be able to watch the company meetings live and in real time.  Each quarterly meeting will take place in a different location.
