Just thought I would share another custom designed hard case I built for a sports live streaming contract, thought it could be useful for others trying to make hard cases for ATEM and other live streaming equipment.
So the clients I built these for both bought Tricaster Mini HD-4 at the advice of the sporting league which I don’t necessarily think is the best pick… but they could’ve bought something worse.
We ended up building 4 these Boxes and they have two 23.8" monitors mounted in the lid on a custom CNC cut piece of 1/8" aluminum The main inside of the box that holds all the equipment is also cut out of 1/8" aluminum on my CNC and bent at a 90° on the end to hold the two 120mm fans. This was all designed in fusion360 with a cad file of the pelican case from their website, it made it really easy to get a perfect fit. There are six BiDirectional SDI/HDMI converters that convert the HDMI input and output on the Tricaster to SDI and HDMI and a SDI loop out, this makes it perfect for using more professional cameras like the Studio Camera 4K Pros that we are using.
Goals Of The Case:
- Fast and easy to set up
- Contain all necessary equipment in one hard case
- Convert HDMI Only Tricaster to HDMI & SDI
- Contain a secondary computer to run companion and NewBlue Titler Live for scoreboard and graphics.
- Easy for students and staff to be trained on.
