Chief Election Forum in Hong Kong Broadcast Live on TV, Facebook Using Ross Video Gear
On March 19th, the Chief Election Forum was held in Hong Kong. The debate consisted of three candidates of the HK Chief Executive Election in front of hundreds of voters at AsiaWorld on Lantau Island, and was broadcasted live on television and Facebook using Ross Video’s Carbonite Black Solo Switchers, Furio RC Robotics and PivotCAM Cameras.
A 20m Furio straight track was set between the stage and the audience to capture the candidate’s speeches, as well as the audience’s reactions. Furio provided two viewing angles (stage and audience) using a single camera, while the long track allowed a wide viewing range. The PivotCam’s were used to cover positions in smaller spaces without sacrificing quality, and the Carbonite Black Solo’s controlled the PivotCam’s.
“Ross provided us with a complete solution not for just this production, but for all of our productions – no matter the size. Not only is Ross cost-effective and user-friendly, but Furiowas able to add a dynamic feel with its smooth on-air moves and shots. Also, being able to integrate a variety of Ross products together, we can provide solutions to our customers and fulfill basically any of their requirements,” says Wilson Chan, Solution Specialist of i-Solutions.
“We were very glad to be given the opportunity to cover such an important event. Being a company that are Production Technology Experts, we were able to provide them with an end-to-end solution that was not just cost effective, but that helped them to deliver a dynamic and high-quality show. That was truly an example of a Smart Production,” says Andrew Tan, Director of Sales APAC for Ross Video.
