AIR One isn't just another piece of equipment – it's an opportunity.

Production professionals understand the importance of image quality in livestreaming. AIR One brings advanced PTZ functions to digital cinema cameras, setting a new standard for professional live production, while reducing costs associated with traditional production.

AIR One Robotics

Meet AIR One – a robotic gimbal that brings human-like movement and automation to remote camera control. AIR One is self-contained kit that can be operated from anywhere using only a broadband connection, and will stream live video to any CDN.

Quality

Can record or stream at full camera resolution

Lightweight

Mount anywhere. Small enough to fit in an aircraft overhead bin.

Camera Agnostic

AIR supports multiple camera makes and models.

Smart Gimbal

Onboard CPU enables highly advanced shots without ever needing to touch the camera.

AIR App

The AIR iOS app allows touchscreen control of the AIR One robot from a local ethernet connection or remotely via the internet. Control up to 6 robots, each with up to 40 preset recall positions, from one iPad. Using the AIRcloud deeplinking, all camera settings and permissions can be autopopulated.

AIRcloud

AIR One connects directly into AIRcloud, an orchestration layer that simplifies your most complicated productions. You can automate your shoot prep and permissions, access all your favorite live production apps from one place, and manage your content via our media asset manager. 


Scale Your Livestreaming Video Production

Results you can count on. A budget you can afford. AIR technology is better, simpler, and radically less expensive than traditional video production techniques. Guaranteed. Join the ranks of successful AIR users, from tier one sports teams to independent YouTubers.

AIR One™ is the first professional video production platform designed for OTT livestreaming. Born from decades of pain shooting multicamera live events, we’ve created a remote system that minimizes equipment, captures better video, and radically reduces production costs.

Lens types, focal lengths

    (see website for approved lens list)
  • Wide angle zooms (starting at 7mm)
  • Standard zoom (14mm+/- to 140mm+/-)
  • Telephoto zoom (up to 300mm*)
  • Primes


Lens max weight

  • 1.0kg 
     

Lens max length

Approved lens list

  • Contact your Broadfield sales rep
     

Crop factor (Field of view varies by mount, lens type, and sensor size.)

  • M4 camera + MFT mount + MFT lens = 1.9x crop
    e.g. 14mm MFT lens provides a 35mm-equivalent field of view of a 27mm Full Frame lens (approx. 67º horizontal field of view).
  • M4 camera + EF mount + EF lens = 1.75x crop
    e.g. 14mm EF lens provides a 35mm-equivalent field of view of a 25mm Full Frame lens (approx.71º horizontal field of view).
  • S6 camera + EF mount + EF lens = 1.5x crop
    e.g. 14mm EF lens provides a 35mm-equivalent field of view of a 21mm Full Frame lens (approx. 81º horizontal field of view)
    F6 + FF mount + FF lens = 1x crop
    F8 + FF mount + FF lens = 1.2x crop


Sensor subsampling

  • S6/F6/F8 also feature a “crop sensor” mode for subsampling from a smaller area of the sensor when recording/streaming in a 4k/1080HD (vs standard mode which downsamples the full frame from 6K/8K to 4k/HD). Crop mode effectively gives a narrower optical field of view with zero loss in video quality for scenarios where increased focal length on the long end of the zoom is desirable.
  • S6 4K supersample mode = 2.1x
    S6 HD supersample mode = 4.2x
  • F6 4K supersample mode = 1.5x
    F6 HD supersample mode = 3x
  • F8 6K supersample mode = 1.6x
    F8 4K supersample mode = 2.4x
