The new 850CS measures 28.5 in x 11.5 in ... Are there any plans or ideas on how to integrates this great new tool in a flypack?

Many thanks!

I don't think so. I've given it some thought and integration would lead to too large a case, unless you're rolling with a behemoth like Pizazz Jef.

Better to do a seperate case like what Jim Davis is cooking up in Pennsylvania.

Jef's rack is not that big... it is just a double rack which is pretty common in the sound world. It still easliy goes through a single door and best yet keeps everything plugged in and ready to go...

Now I have seen some cases for large Encore systems that are Triple cases standing 7' tall and take at least 3 people to move them... (and I should add it take 3 of those to make 1 complete system and about 1 hour of re-connecting the cross cables)

If it has to go freight, it stretches the bounds of portability. But that's just my opinion. [Now to contradict myself with examples to boot] "Portacast" has to go freight and given the name is meant to be portable, but even with as large as a Portacast's flight case is - it still couldn't fit a TCXD850 CS. I'm unconvinced the Jim Davis way (separate case) isn't the way to go.

Colin, one of the best things I ever did was get signed up with continental cargo as a known shipper. It is amazing how cheap it is to ship a roadcase via cargo. And it is there the same day!

I've thought about it - but the new DHS rules (you know, the part where they get to come inspect your place initially, then any time thereafter) just offended my civil libertarian senses. :grumpy:

I was inspected, actually interviewed, the first time by CC but never since. They basically need to confirm you are actually a business thats all.

The DHS circular I got some time ago made it seem like it was more of a way for TSA to determine you weren't shipping meth or box cutters. Maybe it was worded that way just for folks in Washington. You know the Beltway is a reality distortion field, after all.

WPS builds complete custom solutions for your Flypack needs. Don't fall for a fixed-for-all generic setup. It could or could not be useful enough to meet your needs. We've built tons of them. We can completely CAD out your equipment and build the rack to suit, how you want to operate it. Not how others "think" you should operate it. Contact us today to discuss your needs.

For a Fly pack or Air pack you require a truck or Van. Most of our clients want carryable cases that fit in a car.
We have created a TC855 case = 4u - shockmount - neoprene wheels and telescopic handle.
There are cut outs in the foam for removable drives during transport, TC8000 fits in it as well.

also a 855CS case , with or without a Time warp extension.

and a TC8000CS case

These are manageble by one person and available in any color.
We have just finished an airpack , that will house any Tricaster, CS, 27" touch screen LED, with extra rack space for power / audio gear.
will be posted this week.

I'm loving our new Mobile Studios PortaCast. They were thoughtful and helpful putting it together, the design is great- still expandable, and the workmanship is impeccable. I've worked in TV since 1986 and this is the second TriCaster I've worked on. Thanks, Rich!

Tricaster Flypack ver1.0 111203

We are changing the lower areas to a dual 12u shockmount 19" rack
The flip up lid, will house a 32" currently,
the ver2.0 will be able to hold a bigger single or twin 24" monitors

Feedback?

Hey Bruce or Rich, I have a customer looking for a "fly pack" for a TC 455, 450 CS, 24-26" monitor, keyboard, mouse & possibly a small audio mixer. And like you said Bruce, it needs to be as small and light as possible. Something that could be loaded into a hatchback type of vehicle. It won't need to be a shipping ATA type case, just something to move all the components around in a single unit. Is that possible?

OK im working on a special case for a guy
complete flypack for everything is still too big for hatchback
so...
im making a case 455/with a slide out monitor (4u)
problem is the slide out are NOT cheap
and in 19" rack its a 17" monitor
a regular VGA slide out/flip up is around $600
one with HD/SDI as well is 2000
and then the 455CS case (extended version) you can put a 6 channel Peavy mixer in where the Time warp goes
dunno if that will work for your situation, but these cases are a constant work in progress !
Im open to suggestions
Bruce

How about a mini version of the one you have pictured above with the 8000 CS. Just scale everything down. That way you could put a 24" monitor in the lid. Possible?

Is that the back-plane of the 455 under the monitor in one of the images?

The price is very good in my opinion and it looks sharp guys.

Nice work :)
