The Digital MultiCam (Video) device is used in a multiple camera or multicam mode of production which is a technique of shooting TV programs and films. In this shooting technique, several camera devices either video or film are utilized to concurrently broadcast as well as record a scene. In general, 2 outer camera devices shoot ‘crosses’ (close shots) of the 2 characters with the most screen time on the set, while a main camera/s is shooting a wider master shot for capturing the overall scene and establishing the set’s geography. This way, plenty of shots are acquired in one take without starting or stopping an action. This technique is especially useful for shows that are to be aired in a short amount of time after shooting since it decreases the time to be spent for editing the footage. It is likewise a necessity for high-oupt and regular shows such as soap operas that air daily.
