TV Broadcast Camera Question

by Alex

Hello. I want to start broadcasting our church Service on Local Television Cable Station and eventually satellite.

What would be a good inexpensive camera, but would have broadcasting quality for television?

And could you recommend a inexpensive package deal that would do the trick? such as - 1 Camera, Lighting kit, switcher ETC.

Hey Alex,

I'm afraid the words 'broadcast quality' and 'inexpensive' don't normally appear in the same sentence ;-)

A real TV broadcast quality is going to cost from $5000 to $50,000 and more! Pro lights and audio equipment will also set you back thousands of dollars.

I recommend you consider hiring the equipment to start with. This way you don't have any huge financial outlay and you can try out different cameras and equipment to see which you ones you like.

A broadcast quality camera will cost from around $250 per day, but you normally get the same price for a weekend. Google 'video equipment hire' for some local hire companies.

I also recommend you go and visit your local cable station and have a chat with them about equipment and the video formats they require. They may even have some gear they will rent you.

Hope that helps?

Mr Video :-)
