@velamo05: Right? Its a totally different aspect of him showing than when he is on the couch. He and Drew are the awesome pit crew of giant bomb. So glad i subscribed.

This makes me appreciate what these guys do even more than before.

Posted by blorbagush

finally got a chance to come back and watch this. fantastic work @vinny and @drewbert! I'd love to see a followup sometime soon.

Really awesome. I've been meaning to watch this for a while. I would love to see more behind the scenes of your productions when/if you have the chance.

Did Vinny and Drew figure all this stuff out through years of trial and error or is it based off of another video recording/streaming set up they had prior knowledge of?

For me who wants to get into live studio TV. I always wondered how they had their set up. This is the most interesting video on the site for me.

Edited by marchcarax

I loved this. Fantastic video guys.

@Vinny I'm not sure if it's been fixed as I haven't been able to watch many live streams due to a busy semester, but I do know for a fact the audio problems with the steam is not your fault. The problem is with the actual volume on the player because they player would say the volume is at max when it is actually only half way. That's definitely the source of people complaining about a lack of volume during streams.

It may be fixed with the new site. I'm not exactly sure.

Awesome video!

The volume thing was I think from twitch tv their player had an issue in embedding where if you didn't move the volume slider the sound would be really low.

Drew is such a boss holding that camera up for an hour his hands didn't have any circulation by the end.

This was awesome! I wanted to know why stuff gets out of sync and why the only to fix it is to restart the stream, is it because that's a problem with twitch? or do they have to restart the tricaster?

Super interesting guys! Thanks so much Vinny and Drew!

Posted by JoshS

Really love this video. I have watched it three times now. Please make more!

I look at the back of my computer and think it's just a mess of wires. It's practically wireless compared to everything these guys are running.

Posted by billyhoush

Vinny explaining a prime lens made me so happy. Please do more of these videos. It's production nerd porn.

Posted by SavePoint

Super interesting stuff... you guys are awesome!

Posted by kennybaese

Man, I would kill for one of those hardware compressors. Their audio setup (for what they are doing) is rad. The video stuff is impressive, but mostly went over my head.

@coldblood: But then he'd have to leave!

Posted by slot9

lovin' it, thanks guys!

Posted by coldblood

I want Vinny's job. I can do it.

Posted by xXHesekielXx

Super cool video! So interesting to see what's going on behind the scenes and how everything is controlled. More of these videos please...

Posted by JustinTHOM

Any word if you guys are gonna do another one of these ?

Posted by djou

Shit, that's a lot more complicated than I imagined. You guys work hard.

Posted by porr

Holy crap thats a lot of equipment.

Posted by GrimFandango9

Just shows how talented the production guys are. Keep it up guys!

Posted by Xealot42

Drew's love of complex flight sims and giant manuals makes much more sense now!

Posted by aquacadet

I love videos like this. I loved the photoshop ones from last years GOTY stuff.

Is it rude to ask how much this entire setup cost?

Posted by d_biro

That was so cool and interesting to see. Stuff like this is what sets GB apart.. Thanks guys!

Posted by wafflez

look out will and norm, Vinny And Drews Tested is coming!

Posted by vexidus

Thank you so much for doing this! I found it fascinating, and now have a greater appreciation for how hard you guys work to bring us great content.

Posted by Neorub

That was really really cool. Keep doing these I will watch everyone of them.

Posted by ProfMembrane

This was awesome. Really fascinating and a lot of fun. Well done Vinny and Drew!

Posted by brokenbrute

It'd be great to see one of the 'how to make a..." for the bombcast. I have no idea how you can make a 3 hour podcast without making life hell in post.

Posted by TheBrainninja

Oh man, serious gear envy after seeing y'all's whole setup. I think I do alright juggling TV and receiver inputs, but I could improve it a bunch; USB over Ethernet seems like magic, and probably a good way of cleaning up a lot of my cable mess. I wonder if it ever breaks, and what else you could send down it with a dongle.

Regardless, I will voraciously consume any and all production-related content you can put out; I'd love to see a sequel focusing on the Folsom or the Quick Look room.

Posted by kkotd

A decent Behringer mix? I didn't think those exist! I've been burnt so many times by their 6 and 8 channel mixers.

Posted by GodlyOne

Vinny and Drew, the Batman and Robin of video production. Was a very interesting look at how much it takes to film all the Giant Bomb stuff. More features like this, please!

Posted by jonnybob

Hey Vinny and Drew, this was awesome, thanks for taking the time to walk us through it, would love to see more.

Posted by marbleCmoney

Awesome video. Really interesting to see how you guys do your thing.

Posted by Zephan

So much stuff to remember and I've already forgot half of it. :(

Really interesting though! Thanks for the insight into TNT

Posted by sirdesmond

This was awesome. I'm glad they finally got around to showing this stuff off. I'd love to see more in-depth ones in the future.

Also, that Brad transition is great!

Posted by natetodamax

Thanks for the behind-the-scenes look! I really enjoyed it.

Posted by DonkeyKong

Really interesting video, I had no idea Vinny and Drew had to have all of that equipment running for a TNT.

Also, would it be possible for someone to make a gif. of the stuff Jeff does at 40:19 onwards to his angry face, it was amazing lol.

Posted by Triumvir

I know this is extremely late, but I only got around to watching this today. This might be one of the best features you guys have ever done. I don't usually call out the staff with these tags, but I wanted to thank you guys directly for taking the time to shoot it and to archive it. You both do a heck of a job, and you have much more technical know-how than I think you'd like to admit --- if this video was any indication, anyway. Keep up the good work.

Posted by augustoborn

This is all very, very cool. Great job Vinny and Drew!

Edited by Flixxx

How do you deal with audio/video sync with all those routings between devices? This is a great video! I hope you'll do more of those technical behind-the-scenes looks :)

Posted by OllyOxenFree

So many buttons, switches, LEDs, monitors, cameras, cables, lights...

My head hurts.
