After a long time of design and hard work, I have the pleasure to announce the new 6-cameras OB Unit. Based on the Newtek Tricaster Studio, this system makes Directing and Videographing at Live Productions much easy than ever. It is packed with a lot of features among which are 'Tally' and 'Talk-back' both ways. The beauty of it all is that every camera and the OB Unit are linked together by a single Cat5e cable. It also has 'Return Video of program out or any of the other cameras on the set' to facilitate the picture composition by the camera persons. To see all this at work together with more specifications and details, watch these 2 clips.



I hope you enjoy what you see and would love to have your comments.

Thats pretty neat!

Are you planning to sell these kits?

Very tidy, great attention to detail - congratulations!

Congratulations TIMECARE!

Now we know that your "absence" was well worth it. The set up is awesome and the demos are not bad either.

VERY nice work! I remember looking at your schematics. Good to see you made it to a working product. BTW, I'll be in your lovely country in a couple of weeks.

Thanks all those for their remarks and comments. I am receiving a lot of private enquiries about which cameras can take this camera back kit. The answer is simple. Any camera having a v-mount. Normally all cameras have the necessary composite and svhs outputs. Because i come from a land very far away from most of the forum members, it is very difficult for me to produce these kits and offer them for sale. But if i find somebody willing to do this venture with me, I am open for offers. Who knows? The OB Unit too is also is a very economic masterpiece. This set up is good enough for a small tv station thanks to the TRICASTER.

Although the OB Unit is originally thought to be based on the TRICASTER STUDIO, the latter is not embedded in the console. Apart from many others, one important reason is when there is malfunction of one set and a quick change over to a stanby one will be needed. Also, the unit by itself could be used with a third party desktop switcher/mixer with tally facilities. As one can see in the attached photos, the unit has its own patching panel. I am trying to answer all private calls here just in case of similar queries from other forum members.

Very impressive! Excellent design and looks very functional. I'm very interested in selling the system. Any dealer info on it yet?

With gear like that, one could be mistaken for a professional!

Oh well, something else to work toward.

Is that Malta as in Idaho, or Malta as in..... .....the island!

It's definitely not Idaho. OB is something used to describe non studio setup outside of US.

It's definitely not Idaho. OB is something used to describe non studio setup outside of US.What, pray tell, does the O. and the B. Stand for, in the context Timecare is using it? And also, does the name for an "Obie" light have anything to do with that? Just curious.

Utterly fantastic work, there Timecare!
