Skytronn Rental

The Advanced Skytronn System is an Interrotron at a distance.

Typical use: The director is in one location and the talent in another. He/she directs the talent through the lens of the main camera from the security of their own home.

How is the Skytronn Set up?

The Talent Unit of the Interrotron Mark III sits on the main tripod and on HDSDI or HDMI cable. The Cable goes into the Skytronn System which captures the video and makes it available to the built-in MAC Mini and Audio Device.  A touch screen on the device accesses the internal computer which is loaded with all needed aoftware including: OBS, Skype Pro, Zoom, Bluejeans, etc.

Audio goes in and out of the Skytronn with standard XLR ports.

Skytronn Basic Unit Setup:

This above video shows connection of the basic Skytronn device by connecting the HDSDI video out from the main camera to the capture device and then into the supplied laptop.  Zoom and OBS software are preinstalled on the laptop.

Video and audio out from the Zoom session is accomplished with an HDMI cable from the laptop to the monitor on the Interrotron.

Audio in and out is the responsibility of the sound recordist A1. He/she will need to get the talent’s voice into the laptop and get the sound form the director’s Zoom session out of the laptop.  The A1 will also need to insure there is no feedback.
