New Remote Contribution Systems Featuring Canon Cameras

AbelCine has put together a new Canon Remote Contribution System (RCS) with three distinct Tiers, all of which draw upon our experience designing custom, professional Remote Production solutions for a wide range of clients and applications.

Each Tier is centered around the reliable, cutting-edge performance of Canon cameras and optics, serving as an ideal starting point for crafting a solution that best addresses your remote production challenges. All Tiers are fully customizable based on your unique logistical and creative requirements.


Tier 1

This version of the Canon RCS is optimized for fixed camera live streaming and "talking head" interviews. The most recent iteration of this type of kit was used for the 2021 Golden Globes, based on AbelCine's previous experience designing a 25-kit solution for the 2020 Emmy Awards, as well as other remote contribution kits.


Tier 2

This RCS is optimized for advanced, streamlined network control, "hands-off" operation, and greater image quality. A recent AbelCine use case with an A-list client featured Canon C70 cameras with Canon Primes, mounted on standard Sachtler tripods.


Tier 3

This version is optimized for live events and dynamic interviews with camera articulation (such as with a remote head). Recent AbelCine use cases include EPKs, MarCom, and a fully remote Promo production for a major streaming platform.


If you are interested in Renting equipment for your upcoming Remote Production, AbelCine also offers a bespoke Canon RCS Rental Solution.

Client Profiles
With award shows moving to virtual formats this year, the 2020 Creative Arts Emmy Awards is one of the highest profile events to make the transition. Over the summer, AbelCine created a range of remote production kits that enable high quality image capture in a safe, easy to set up, remote controllable package. As a result, the team at Done+Dusted, the producers of the Emmys telecast, tapped AbelCine to help build 25 remote kits for select nominees at the 2020 Emmy Awards.

At this point in time, audiences have become accustomed to the idea of award shows incorporating some version of remote or virtual collaboration, especially as travel restrictions keep much of the talent at home. So when Dick Clark Productions chose to reunite the Emmys producing team for this year's Golden Globes and reached out to Mike Nichols, AbelCine Business Development Manager, our previous experience with the remote camera and lighting kits proved invaluable. We were able to build, set up, deliver, and remotely control a number of identical "drop kits" that were delivered to various nominee locations across the country.
