The Wrens performing a special concert at the Knitting Factory in New York City

Using new, state-of-the-art HD video-capture systems in both Knitting Factory New York and Los Angeles venues, Knitting Factory Digital Services (KFDS) offers record labels a means to generate live performance content and provides customized delivery to a variety of broadcast, Web 2.0, wireless and other distribution platforms.

The new install includes automated, high-definition A/V-capture systems that allow a single operator to capture a four-camera HD shoot ready for broadcast or post-production; the system is expandable with an additional three to 10 cameras. The audio path comprises a stereo feed from the board (a Soundcraft MH 32-channel in New York City and a Crest X Series 40-channel in L.A.) and ambient mics (a pair of Shure KSM141SLs) through the Meyer custom system. That feed goes to a remote production booth with a Mackie ProMix console and outboard goodies, which then goes to the recording decks.

KFDS will also provide basic editing and clip compilation services. Stereo and advanced multitrack audio capture are available, as is basic entry-level direct-to-DVD capture. O.A.R. recently came in to the New York City show and used this system to put on a “secret show” for their fans.
