SlingStudio Hub             Video

Presenter: David Scott
                  Dish Technologies
                  Sr. Sales Manager

Executing a multiple camera shoot with the SlingStudio Hub gives you the freedom to wirelessly connect multiple video sources for recording, streaming, or live switching. The compact, lightweight enclosure houses all the recording, streaming, and wireless tasks, while the production can be live-switched from an iPad running the Console app.

Cameras can be connected to the SlingStudio Hub wirelessly or with an HDMI cable. Compatible mobile devices can connect directly over the Studio Hub's Wi-Fi connection, while standard video cameras can connect to separately available CameraLink Wi-Fi transmitters or directly via the Hub's HDMI connection. Up to ten sources can be connected simultaneously, and any combination of four live 1080p30 or 720p60 input sources can be switched, recorded, and streamed. If you only need two sources, resolutions up to 1080p60 can be used.
Not only can the SlingStudio Hub facilitate live streaming, it also offers a simple workflow for post-production. All media that is being input into the Hub can be recorded as industry-standard, high-quality H.264 ISO video files to either an SD card or a hard drive connected directly via USB-C or via USB 3.0 through the separately available USB-C Expander. In all, isolated (ISO) feeds of each input channel, the final switched output, line-in audio, and multiview of the isolated channels can be recorded simultaneously. An HDMI to Mini HDMI adapter cable is included for connecting the video output to a standard display, projector, or secondary recording or streaming hardware.

Several separately available accessories can enhance the abilities of the SlingStudio Hub. A battery allows the Hub to operate without mains power, great for impromptu field setups where access to power is limited. The USB-C Expander offers multiple USB connections for storage, and a wired Ethernet connection for wired streaming. Altogether, you can build an extremely versatile video production platform.
