One of the advantages of Mini EYE that's enabling all this is its modular rig design. We are able to install Mini EYE on a standard Jimmy Jib or Polecam head, and the pan/tilt/gimbal assembly ‘disappears', with the lenses going either side of the mounts / arms. This is not possible with an ‘all-in-one' design camera like Ozo, S1, Obsidian, etc. The reliability of the Blackmagic Micro cameras is key for a 12 hour broadcast.
Being able to remotely control the camera heads is key too, as it allows us to adapt to day-to-night and night-to-day changes in exposure and color temperature, without going near the cameras.
Check out the live show… some of Reggae's biggest artists are performing, along with a special surprise guest appearance from a true Jamaican legend.
