JVC Professional Video has announced that WFIE, an affiliate of NBC in Evansville, Indiana, is using the ProHD Studio 4000S live sports production and streaming solution to generate local sports coverage and breaking news.

“We had been considering the idea of streaming live high school sports on our website, and JVC’s studio-in-a-box solution seemed like an affordable way to consolidate the equipment needed for multi-camera productions,” explained Jason Gravens, news operation manager for WFIE. ”The 4000S gives you the basics of everything you need to make a ballgame happen.”

When rack mounted on one of the TV’s OB trucks, the system anchords three-camera productions for high school football games and two-camera productions for high school basketball games. Regarding news coverage, an old conference room was converted into a small studio, with the 4000S and an audio mixer positioned on a small table. One of the station’s older ENG cameras is mounted on a tripod, and a microphone is positioned above Sweeney on a C-stand. The studio also includes a basic three-point lighting system, plus an extra piece of WFIE’s current news set mounted to the wall as a backdrop. If WFIE wants to stream an update, the equipment is turned on. Although it includes a built-in CG, the broadcaster prefers to load its graphics into the device using a flash drive.

The ProHD Studio 4000S live sports production and streaming studio can be switched through its touchscreen or via a keyboard and a mouse.
