I was asked if Epic can be turned around for a live broadcast...... i said well in principle yes.
So for ESPN in the UK i set about turning round 5k rushes for use in the live broadcast of the FA CUP final (football). I took along a mac pro with red rocket and connected it to the network within the edit for the OB. I then went off filming sending back rushes on several cards and then transcoded straight onto the OB shared storage, fed straight into an EVS and from there it was played out into the live broadcast with perhaps only 6-7 min from acquisition. I shot all the pre-match on my 17-50mm 4kHD then switched up to the 150-600mm 5KWS pitch side. With about 10min before the final whistle I broke the epic back down to the hand held set up and ran on the pitch shooting 4kHD.
By no means an easy feat especially as I operated out of the boot of my Merc estate and with no skilled DIT or assistant. Wouldn't want to repeat this in a hurry but got a massive buzz to see it going out on air as I ran off to capture more..... This is one special camera.
