Technology and Equipment

Check out the latest updates!

Amaze Studios primarily uses BlackMagic Design switchers to produce video, however we have other switchers available depending on your budget. Having all production equipment ready to go cuts setup time down dramatically, reduces time spent troubleshooting, and allows us to use all capabilities at every event, regardless of size.

These are just the highlights; much more equipment is kept on board and in external inventory. Please note that the equipment and specifications below are subject to availability and may be updated or modified as per industry standards and technological advancements.
