We're proud to announce that we've moved into the world of live multi-camera broadcasting.
With the acquisition of our fully fledged fibre-optic production system, we now have the ability to broadcast any event directly to the world, from nearly anywhere. Whether it's a small question and answer session, to larger sporting events, we can help you get your event on-air or online.
We have built our own custom made vMix production system, complete with dynamic graphic cabailities, instant replays, and multi-camera recording and switching. Utilising both our hard wired Blackmagic Fibre Optic system, and Newtek's NDI technology, we can feasibly live stream and switch between any amount of cameras, from four fibre cameras, to a near limitless amount of NDI capable cameras. (Depending on local network availability)
Combined with our access to Dejero transmission hardware, we can effectively deploy a multi-camera studio production almost anywhere, to broadcast live to anywhere in the world.
As pictured above, we were invited to test out the system for the annual London Ice Varsity Challenge, a yearly Ice Hockey match between the Imperial Devils, and the UCL Yetis.
We ran a five camera outside broadcast, with four cameras being operated by experienced crew members, and one static. We had full instant replay functionality, dynamically generated graphics updated in real time with the game events, and three commentator positions with live game monitoring.
With a total crew of six, and presenting team of two, we broadcast the match direct to YouTube, which was watched worldwide. We had full comms with all crew members, and IFB for the commentators to hear themselves over the noise of the arena.
Game clocks were syncronized with the actual game clock on the scoreboard, and all graphics with team rosters, scores and timings were automatically updated as things changed.
It was a great learning experience, and many bugs were not only discovered, but ironed out during the event, almost unbeknownst to the viewer.
