Set up a video studio nearly anywhere with this SlingStudio Mobile Production Kit. In addition to the SlingStudio hub, this kit includes a battery for the hub, a CameraLink wireless camera transmitter, and a USB-C expander for USB hard disk or flash storage and local Ethernet connectivity. Since the SlingStudio can operate without a mains power connection, you can set up a studio to broadcast over the web from anywhere with a network connection. All the accessories included in this kit fit right into the included backpack, along with other essentials such as the iPad controller, storage media, and any cables you might need. For more information on the individual items included in this kit, check out the descriptions below or watch an quick overview video of the SlingStudio here.

 

SlingStudio Hub

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 iOS and Android 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 4 live 1080p30 or 720p60 input sources can be switched, recorded, and streamed, and up to 10 sources can be connected at any given time. If you only need to switch, record, or stream 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 Type-C or via USB 3.0 through the separately available USB Type-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. The HDMI output can be set to no-latency passthrough mode so any live video being displayed will be in sync with the house audio.

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 Type-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.

Note: Check the SlingStudio website for an updated list of compatible mobile devices, iPads, and recording media.

Live Switching Features

  • Switcher: Switch between 10 different video sources using the Console app running on iPad
  • Video transitions: Cut, dissolve, wipe
  • Video compositions: Picture in Picture (PiP), multiple split views
  • Audio mixer: Full audio mixer functionality with monitoring mode support, supports always-on audio (ON) or audio follows video (AFV) for all video input sources
  • Overlays: Lower-thirds (title and scoreboard), text overlays
  • Custom Graphics: Insert, resize, and change the transparency of your own JPG and PNG graphics—including logos, lower-thirds, profile pics, ads, or background images—and overlay them on your live program feed

Wireless Video Connection

While most common switchers require a physical connection via SDI or HDMI, the SlingStudio Hub can connect to up to ten wireless sources via 802.11 ac Wi-Fi (up to four sources can be switched from at any given time). Cameras with an HDMI output can connect using separately available CameraLink transmitters, while select iOS and Android smart devices can use their own Wi-Fi connectivity to transmit video using the free Capture app, available in the App Store and on Google Play, respectively.

Live Wireless Switching via iPad

With the free Console app, your iPad can now become a switcher for all the video inputs, as well as an audio mixer. Titles, lower-thirds, transitions, captions, and more can be controlled in real time to give your live switch a professional look.

Post-Production Ready

All video and files recorded by the SlingStudio Hub are stored in a single location. No need to search for multiple cards and spend time syncing them inside your editing software. Just use the free Apple FCPX or Adobe Premiere plugin from Sling to conform the project file inside your NLE and start editing.

SlingStudio CameraLink

Wirelessly connect your camcorder or other live video source to the SlingStudio Hub by plugging in the SlingStudio CameraLink. The CameraLink takes an HD video signal via HDMI and transmits it wirelessly over 802.11 ac Wi-Fi to the SlingStudio Hub for switching, streaming, or recording. Formats up to 1080p60 at 30 Mbps are supported. For power, the CameraLink has a built-in lithium-ion battery which provides over two hours of continuous usage. To recharge, use the included micro-USB cable to plug the transmitter into a separately available standard USB charger (a high-output 2A charger is recommended for best performance). A four-segment LED indicator reports the current battery capacity. Use the included shoe mount to secure the CameraLink unit to your camera, be it a DSLR or mirrorless camera, or a standard camcorder. A USB charging cable and a micro-HDMI (Type D) to Mini HDMI (Type C) adapter cable are included as well. Cables for cameras which use full-size HDMI ports and micro-HDMI ports are available separately.

SlingStudio SlingStudio USB-C Expander

Expand the connectivity options of your SlingStudio Hub with the SlingStudio USB-C Expander. Connect the Expander to your Hub's USB-C connection and you can now connect up to two USB 3.0 storage devices and a physical gigabit Ethernet LAN. With an attached USB 3.0 drive, you can record multiple channels of video and audio from the Hub. The Ethernet connection offers a direct LAN connection for rock-solid streaming in areas where Wi-Fi might cut out or is not feasible. As this adapter is passive, it does not require any separate or external power; just plug and play.

SlingStudio SlingStudio Battery

Use your SlingStudio Hub untethered from mains power with the SlingStudio Battery. The seamless design allows the Hub to dock right in. All functionality of the Hub is maintained, and the battery can power the Hub for up to three hours. When the battery is spent, use the power supply included with the Hub to fully recharge the battery in approximately four hours.

SlingStudio Backpack

Pack the entirety of your SlingStudio setup into this branded Backpack. With multiple padded compartments, the backpack can fit the SlingStudio Hub along with multiple Batteries and CameraLinks. A dedicated compartment can also hold a laptop or an iPad along with ancillary accessories. Padded shoulder straps and a top carry-handle offer multiple ways to transport the Backpack along with your gear. Once your production wraps up, pack everything up, and have it ready to go for the next project.
