ARRI has launched TRINITY Live, a broadcast focused upgrade option for TRINITY Gen.1, the first generation of ARRI’s flagship, body- mounted camera stabilizer system. Comprising new hardware, wiring, and connectivity, the upgrade kit optimizes the TRINITY Live system for live productions and improves its functionality within the ARRI Multicam System and third-party broadcast camera applications.
• Improved TRINITY Gen.1 camera stabilizer performance for live
• Optimal integration with the ARRI Multicam System and third-party
• Extends the life of TRINITY Gen.1 and allows operators to expand
into new markets
• Repositioned wireless video link to off-camera lightens the entire
system by up to 4 kg / 8.8 lb and provides a more stable signal
• Further upgrades, like the 24 V camera power and Master Grip
TRINITY are available for the TRINITY Live system
Enhanced connectivity is at the heart of the TRINITY Live upgrade, with four new 4G video lines and a 10 Gbit shielded Ethernet line facilitating the new wireless video link position. The connectors for these new video lines necessitate a completely new center post, post connection, top stage junction box, and wiring loom, all of which are included in the upgrade kit. ARRI announced its Camera Control Panel CCP Live and Tally System Gen.2 at NAB 2023, which expand the broadcast capabilities of existing ARRI cameras and camera stabilizer systems. The new TRINITY Live complements both of these products and is designed to seamlessly integrate stabilized ARRI cameras into live, multi-camera broadcast environments.
TRINITY Live allows the wireless video link that is required for broadcast work to be mounted at the bottom of the system instead of being attached to the camera as is normally the case. Positioning a wireless video link such as the Vislink system at the bottom of the center post allows it to be used as a counterweight when balancing the rig, reducing its weight by up to 4 kg / 8.8 lb. The new position also results in a more stable wireless signal because the antenna rotates within a smaller radius and fluctuates in height less than it does when attached to the back of the camera. In total, TRINITY Live offers five 4G video lines. The four new lines feed the wireless video link with up to four quad link signals (4 x 3G), or with two video lines when Dual SDI (2 x 6G) is needed. The fifth video line serves as a playback line, allowing the operator to see the program image on a second monitor, transmitted wirelessly from the OB van to the TRINITY Live. Meanwhile, the additional internal 10 Gbit Ethernet line provides the OB van with full camera control and communication. For more information, please visit www.arri.com.
