With just one studio manager, they needed an easy-to-use production solution – especially when managing a mix of live and pre-recorded sessions during their monthly internal talk shows.
Four units of CR-N300 cameras later, they’re now able to cover all areas of the studio usually consisting of one host and four guests.
The Hybrid Auto Focus capabilities make their production more seamless between camera movements, especially for one-man band, Hans: “I always use the Face Tracking Auto Focus. It’s very helpful, as I have to do everything by myself.”
This is no mean feat, but the compatibility of the CR-N300 comes to the fore. Hans uses a Skaarhoj joystick controller to manipulate all four cameras.
“Initially, I had to control the cameras with arrow keys! But now we used the Phoenix software, the stream deck software and the Skaarhoj to communicate with the cameras. It was very important that there could be communication between the companion software and the cameras.”
For Hans, however, the most important and useful feature of the Canon PTZ cameras are the Pre-sets: “I’m controlling all the cameras by myself. That’s why the Pre-sets are so useful. Every camera has six, so I can change between the cameras very easily.”
And as their creative knowledge grows, so does their hunger and passion for innovation – with live audience shows being a future goal for the studio.
Hans concludes: “I’m proud that I can do a whole TV show on my own. This camera makes everything possible.”
