The Black Magic Pocket 4k and 6k camera are some of our favorite pieces of gear that we use and install. This is evident by how often you see us talk and post about them. They are extremely versatile, and their price point makes them very accessible to a broad range of budgets.
One of the hurdles that occurs though when using the pocket 4k and 6k in live productions, is the lack of ability to control the camera settings from a remote camera control panel. This is something that, while not necessary for everyone, is crucial in making sure your camera colors match throughout the duration of your live production.
The Middle Things APC (ATEM Pocket Control) Solves this problem. The Middle Things APC allows you to control your BMPCC 4k and 6k over SDI with your ATEM switcher and camera control panel. This integration allows you to keep your workflow the same across the BMPCC 4k/6k and the Ursa Mini cameras. The APC gives you control over the Shutter, Iris, WB, Gain, Some Primary color correction and Zoom. The APC does this by converting the SDI Program out (that has the control data) from your switcher to Bluetooth control. This Bluetooth control signal is then sent to the connected BMPCC.
The APC further adds to the versatility of the Blackmagic pocket cinema camera 4k/6k and opens up possibilities for it to be even more creativity implemented in live productions.

Lambda recently installed the ListenTalk system for a church looking to upgrade their communications systems particularly for video and streaming directing. Everyone liked the system so much we wanted to highlight it here too!
The ListenTalk is designed to facilitate two-way communications for four to eight people with a simple push-to-talk implementation. Each user controls their volume, talk and power. Each unit can be used with a ListenTalk headset or a standard pair of earbuds. The Base-4 System bundles together six pieces of gear into one useful starter system. It includes four Transceivers, one headset, and one four-port USB charger for powering the units when they're not in use.

We love this Datavideo PTC-140 Camera. We have installed these cameras for many different organizations as they offer so much versatility. They allow total control of many of different shots and can be set up with a control system allowing for easy camera control by one person. The camera can be controlled via Ethernet, IR, or RS-232 protocols. They also have both HDMI and SDI outputs allowing them to easily fit into different systems. These cameras support 255 preset positions, enabling you to quickly adjust the camera’s position within a 340-degree pan and a 120-degree tilt range so you won’t miss any unscripted moments. With high resolution and increased zoom capabilities, this camera is an easy choice. You can stream quickly and easily with the built-in protocols allowing it to be a highly versatile camera for all occasions.
