The Sound Department were also responsible for all the Video in the show. From the initial design meetings it was clear the director wanted a live camera feed from the back of the room to the projection surface at the rear of the performance area. Due to cost being an issue the final system was both highly functional but fitted comfortably within the limited budget of the show.

The System Utilised a Cannon 6D Connected Via a Mini HDMI to HDMI cable Into a Blackmagic HDMI to SDI converter Via 75m of 75Ohm BNC into a Blackmagic Thunderbolt Capture Card.

The camera was then cued through Qlab3 on a mac mini (With a Pro Bundle)
