Delack Media Group is honored to have produced the Christmas Eve Midnight Mass live television broadcast at Holy Name Cathedral in Chicago. Seven months of planning for the production came together in a beautiful evening for viewers across the globe who watched the live mass on WGN-TV, which was also livestreamed online.
On the first day of setup, our crew of 15 braved -8 temps and -30 windchills to string cable from our mobile production studio into the cathedral. Over 1,000 feet of fiber and copper cable ran through the sanctuary to connect 10 cameras, including a 25′ jib. A separate audio booth was created for Fr. Greg’s commentary, complete with a mix minus feed and confidence monitor.
4 Blackmagic Ursa Broadcast cameras plus 6 PTZ cameras were sub switched into the ATEM 2 M/E. Program out was sent via two separate cellular bonded signals for redundancy to WGN-TV for transmission. Another feed was sent via VMix for simulcast on YouTube. Production was flawless.
The broadcast received local Chicago news media coverage:
