Lightning CS Primary Capabilities
Reduced technical complexity permits operators to focus on the production instead of the technology.
- Produce meetings after only 30 minutes of training
- Leverage an intuitive touch-screen GUI designed to manage and automate all the operations even by a single user for any size assembly
- Produce great results without the technology of the system getting in the way, and needing to understand the details of production switchers or graphics systems
- Broadcast more meetings with the same amount of staff
System flexibility makes it quick and easy for adapting to changes and accommodating adjustments without costly contracts or fees.
- Get more productivity from meeting rooms by saving and assigning unique marks, representatives, and shots as different files
- Add, change, or remove people in a matter of moments with fast position assignability, name modification, picture replacement, and dynamic updating of identification graphics
- Reduce the amount of time and effort required when changes happen, keeping productions on schedule
A greater number of fully integrated major components than from any other supplier, together with robust integration of third party products, keeps the system staying on air for maximum productivity.
- Utilize the technologies from Carbonite Production Switchers, XPression Motion Graphics, CamBot robotic heads with ACID cameras, PIVOTCam Pan-Tilt-Zoom (PTZ) cameras, openGear signal Processing, Ultrix routing, and Mira servers all unified under a single touch screen control surface, provides the backbone for managing any size of assembly production
- In the unlikely event that something goes wrong, calling a single number gets the system back up and running again quickly
Lightning CS was originally developed to produce coverage of meetings by legislative organizations as many legislatures of all sizes, and all around the world, need to produce video coverage of their debates, votes, and committee proceedings.
Live content creation is a newer role for a government to embrace and it comes with a different set of deliverables and needs when compared to traditional broadcasters. Making the government’s work transparent to the widest constituency is an important service to its citizens. With tax-payer funds at work to both acquire and operate the production equipment, value for money is at a premium.
Just like legislative groups, educational, religious, and corporate organizations also have unique requirements and limited budgets. One thing in common is none of their primary objectives includes video production. This means that the video production system needs to work around the people managing assembly meetings and their working practices. That does not mean they can afford to compromise on the production values of the content they need to deliver.
