Ciao Tutti,

I have worked for a number of years as systems integrator for radio stations and had the chance to be part of a team that built a TV channel in Afirca (Uganda--NTV) 2 years ago, the project ended up as a total disaster the studio lighting was dull the camera set was horrible and the cameras (CCTV) cameras had everything wrong about them...I worked on IT backone systems (Networks, Security etc)...and that worked perfect...at the time alot of stuff ordered (outdoor cameras for documentary and news as well as AV mixers) did not make any sense to me all I had to do was make the cameras fit into the workflow of the station. The station is happy to date with my work on the IT part but not to happy about the pictures that they gather

I have recently been handed a similar project, and asked to setup the whole inhouse TV broadcast suite and on top of that select the most appropriate studio gear, I am so afraid of getting the wrong equipment.....I want to recomend to the investor the most appropriate gear and have gathered alot interest in shooting over the past period, think I might take on TV integration as a career path.

PRINCIPLE INTEREST

1 - A camera that shoots perfect outdoor and terrain and nature shots prefereabley with an option of changing the lens on the camera, very durable (HD)

2 - Dollies, tripod and accesories

3 - A camera that can be used for production of news (shoting anchor man, weather man etc), maybe not at CNN or Aljazeera level but something not to far down the line (HD)

4- A good inexpensive camera, for reporter to run out and gather news, the idea is to have a reporter working as a script editor and cameraman all in one (HD)

5 - TV Sets

6 - Studio lighting

All information would be most useful to me :rolleyes:
