HDstream: 'San Rocco Live 2014'

HDstream, a small production company located in the town of Montescaglioso, near Matera,
in Southern Italy employs Blackmagic Design to capture live events...

F

ounded by two young
videomaker s, Giuseppe
Scocuzza and Nicola Pietrocola,
both of whom share a passion for
producing live content, HDstream
has for several years been
broadcasting the annual festivities
celebrating the life of Saint Rocco,
the patron saint of their hometown.
The one-day production, called
San Rocco Live 2014, involves
raising awareness of this fascinating
historical celebration, which is
deeply rooted in the local traditions
of the Matera region.
In the lead up to San Rocco Live,
HDstream made the decision to
upgrade its production suite, and
chose a number of key workflow
components, including an ATEM
Television Studio production
switcher from Blackmagic Design
with the specific aim of enhancing
the live production.
"For a small operation like
ourselves, keeping costs down

30

is absolutely essential, however
ensuring the production value
remains as high as possible is also
just as important," reveals Giuseppe
Scocuzza, partner at HDstream.
On the day, a small production
team of nine, including two directors,
five camera operators and two
presenters, covered an extended
route of four kilometres, filming the
entire procession. Giuseppe and
his partner had to carefully plan for
and prepare every aspect of this
production to ensure there were no
surprises. With the large crowds of
spectators lining the route, it made
positioning the cameras quite a
challenge, according to Scocuzza.

Production Chain

A mixture of HD-SDI and HDMI
based camera chains were used
in the production, including three
HDMI based cameras, connected
to the switcher using a series of
Blackmagic Mini Converter HDMI

Saint Rocco is carried through Montescaglioso

to SDI, and a fourth HD-SDI camera.
A fifth input on the switcher was
used to supply the video director
with graphics via HMDI, including
lower thirds and stings. The mixed
programme feed was converted to
H.264, captured in real-time on the
PC using Blackmagic's Decklink
Mini Recorder and then streamed
using software from Wirecast.
"We chose ATEM Television Studio
because it gave us not only a built
in MultiView but also the ability to
encode our programme mix straight
to H.264 for streaming purposes,"
says Scocuzza.
"The MultiView meant that we
could keep a tab on all the events
as they unfolded, ensuring that
we were able to package together
the very best programme. Without
it we simply wouldn't have been
able to make the most of all our
camera positions, and we'd have
run the risk of capturing repetitive
shots across multiple cameras,
reducing the number of usable feeds
available to us."

Feed Switch

allowed us to use a single
SDI connection for video and
audio signals.
"In the past we would have
deployed a second cable run for
our ambient microphones and that
often had a detrimental impact
on the quality of audio that we
could capture."
Not only was coverage of the
celebrations broadcast live on
television by a number of regional
broadcasters and streamed online,
highlights of the procession were
also played out on several big
screens located around the streets
of Montescaglioso.
"The first big screen was in close
proximity to the video production
desk, and so we took a VGA output
from a PC straight into the screen,
while Wirecast enabled us to supply
a clean video output to the second
of our two big screens, using the
live streaming feed.
"Thanks to Blackmagic Design we
have been able to step up our game
another level," concluded Scocuzza.
"Giving us the features we needed,
we were able to produce a really
professional looking show, which
was suitable for broadcast
transmission and streaming."

Another feature of the new setup
that proved to be essential was the
ability to manage audio in addition
to video through
the Blackmagic
switcher. "On a live
production of this
scale, with a central
role being played
by marching bands,
audio needs to be as
natural as possible,"
adds Scocuzza.
