Lights, Camera, Quick Draw!
Midtown Video installed a new television studio for Island Luck, one of the largest gaming companies in the Bahamas. Island Luck’s goal was to create a live three-ball Quick Draw game show on their own HD TV channel, ILTV Studio. With a lot of knowledge and a bit of luck on their side, Midtown Video’s team used its versatility and technical expertise to turn Island Luck’s vision into a reality!
The project involved creating a 30-foot set with specialized lighting. The main equipment purchased was a NewTek TriCaster 8000, a robust multi-camera video switcher, audio mixer, and so much more with live streaming capability; a combination of Sony Robotic Cameras and Sony Handheld/Studio Cameras, as well as Chauvet Lighting. Island Luck, with Midtown Video’s assistance, chose Fresnels and Ellipsoidals from Chauvet’s Ovation line. With three on-set screens built into the design, Island Luck wanted to have total control over set lighting.
To complete the installation, our team ran cables through multifaceted building structures, customized a neat rack, and engineered audio and video workflow until the system was perfect. All signals are routable through an AJA KUMO router, giving the system the flexibility to assign different signals to on-set screens.
Our team coordinated its efforts with several contractors, including construction crews, a set design company, and Island Luck’s own management team. With a one-week deadline, we managed all of the moving pieces seamlessly to get the job done right, on time, and on budget.
Island Luck showed our crew exceptional hospitality during their time in the Bahamas, and we appreciate the extra efforts they took to help us arrange travel logistics. Bahamian hospitality is alive and well at Island Luck! And the island’s first televised three-ball Quick Draw game is now live, too!
