Portland’s Best Multi-cam System Rental

Whether you’re planning a studio shoot, live event or any other multi-camera application there’s one system that is tailor-made to fit your project and Picture This is the only shop in town who offers it.

The Panasonic AK-HC3800 is the ultimate fiber-optic studio camera system. It’s jam packed with cutting edge features that make multi-cam shoots easy and efficient.

Multicam Setup Hero System

The cameras themselves sport a large 2/3″ 3CCD imager for an amazing picture in all HD formats with no jello. The 16bit image processing circuit provides dynamic range stretching and a state of the art digital extender. No more light loss and softness like a traditional optical extender.

The single fiber-optic line is the only cable you have to worry about. This one cable carries AC power, video, return video, communication and prompter line. No more messy umbilicals and label tape.

Cam-ops rejoice! The high-def flatscreen 7 inch monitors are cable free! They just slide into a powered mount and are good to go. Plus: the monitor’s modern and intuitive UI provide operators with focus peaking, waveform and vectorscope. And who could forget tally lights? The monitor’s numbered LED tally lights face both the talent and operator so both the talent and operator know when they’re on. The tally lights can also be flashed by the engineer to get your attention. And as always they can use the call function over comm.

Engineers, meet your new best friend. Our tailor-made package is self contained. All the CCUs are stacked in a single road case and all the paintboxes in another. Just open the lid, plug in and you’re ready to go. The top row of the case even has a monitor rack so you can navigate menus and see what all the operators are aimed at.
