At BVE 2016 we stopped by the Global Distribution stand to check out their latest Shape accessories and shoulder rigs for the Sony FS7 and FS5. In addition we take a look at the Shape cage for the Atomos Shogun 4K recorder featuring Shape's push-button technology and handles.
BVE 2016 isn't all about cameras, and even though they are everywhere simply because manufacturers have to use them to display their accessories whether it be wireless solutions, lenses or monitors.

At BVE 2016 we had a chance to check out the latest product release from Convergent Design - the Apollo multicamera recorder/switcher, which can record up to 4 Full HD streams from 4 cameras and record into industry standard 10bit Apple ProRes codec on SSD drives for a quick turnaround. The Apollo can also be used as a video switcher for live events saving you a lot of money and eliminating the need for large and bulky pieces of equipment.
