Single Camera

Single camera style shooting can range from “ENG” news style shooting to film style shooting and everything in between. It has always been our strong point to communicate with the client and videographer to individualize each camera package to fit their projects requirements.


With today’s requirements for multi-camera style shooting being varied and complex, we take great pride in the design and implementation of our flypacks for this production style. Up conversion, down conversion and multiple sync sources, format inputs and outputs are common requirements and fit comfortably into our knowledge base.

From small and compact to larger, more versatile systems is what we have found to be the realities of this type of shooting. We embrace this challenge and are especially good at it. Let us walk you through the process and adapt our systems to your unique production requirements.


Our experience has always demonstrated that client and crew chemistry are of the highest priority on any production. Having been supplying crew in the Bay Area, and world wide for so many years we have specialization of combining the right kind of talent for the right client and project. From music and comedy to corporate and sports, from self direction to sensitive talent spotlighted projects; we know how to bring it all together.

Production Management

From initial client and project contact to the scout, shoot, post and distribution, good production management makes a huge impact on any project’s success. This is an area where our wide range of experience can be of high value. Reaching our clients’ goals and vision in an efficient and effective manner, via support and good planning, is what we will bring to any production. Let us share your vision and we can develop a plan of action to get there.

Post Production

We pride ourselves on planning for post appropriately. Once there, transferring and managing the evolution of the project with an eye on budget and end user requirements. We can supply the most efficient and effective system, management and delivery available.


Magnetic Image Video has built a reputation for having some of the best flypacks in the business. Choosing the right format, data management schemes, distribution, camera matching, and power sources are just the beginning.

Magnetic Image Video has been providing multi camera systems for many years, and we make sure initial system design through post fits the budget and time allotted from build up to tear down. Tally, sync, time code, and camera painting are always our highest priorities.

What is Flypack?

Have you ever wondered what a flypack is? A flypack is a mobile video control room designed to be portable and to efficiently accommodate a multi-camera video production. Like a video remote truck, all of the necessities for a multiple-input video recording are available.

However, since flypacks are built in a more modular way than video remote trucks, it is important to make sure that the number of cameras, lenses, and recorders are properly accounted for in the system.

Our robust design and construction contain numerous routers, timing modules and loads of distribution. This gives the engineer speed and flexibility for building and executing high quality multi-cam recordings.
