Here are some more photos of the kit. I added a power switch next to the plug so I don’t have to yank the cord to turn off the equipment. I’m debating adding a fuse in-line as well, though the power strip under the deck has one built in already.
For my video podcast and trainings I have a camera mounted in one of the cold-shoes on the lid. I have a couple Aputure-MC lights I can mount on the other shoe if I need more light. In venues, I can mount one of the lights to a cold-shoe for tech light.
Currently, only the power input is side mounted on the case. External HDMI and Ethernet lines are direct runs into the case into the equipment. I can keep the cables clean coming in to the case, but may add case-mounted ports as port-savers into the ATEM. If I decided to recess the ATEM, then I’ll definitely add the external ports, but I’m pretty happy with it attached to the top of the deck.
The deck is melamine-laminated pressboard with toolbox drawer covers glued and stapled to it. In the lid I have 3/8" plywood with the same cover material glued and stapled that the monitor and router are mounted to.
Under the laptop stand I have a dual SD card reader that connects to the ATEM via USB-C. I use this to record to and can swap the SD cards between sessions so that I can dump footage on the fly.
All closed up, the kit only weighs 25 lbs (11.34 kg), so is easy to transport. I also have a small toolbox suitcase that I carry other accessories in, such as the headphones, extension cords, a couple 100’ ethernet cables, mics, lights, etc.
