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 can now broadcast any event directly to the world, from nearly anywhere. Whether it's a small question and answer session, to sporting events or significant company announcements, we can help you get your event on-air and online.
We have built our custom made PC to harness the power of vMix live video production software, complete with on-screen dynamic graphics capabilities, 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-optic cameras, to a nearly limitless amount of NDI capable cameras. (Depending on local network availability)
Combined with our access to Dejero transmission hardware, we can effectively deploy a mobile control room & studio facility almost anywhere, utilising IP video to transmit live to anywhere in the world. For live events nowadays, the need for a state of the art OB truck to create your television production is no more.
Dejero Cloud Server also allows us to stream to all major online platforms, including Facebook Live, YouTube and Twitch, or more enterprise content delivery networks like AWS, Microsoft Azure and IBM Watson Media.
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 live outside broadcast, with four operated by experienced camera operators, 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 the YouTube streaming platform, giving it a worldwide audience. We had full comms with all crew members, and IFB for the commentators to hear themselves over the noise of the arena.
On-screen game clocks synchronised 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.
The club are extremely impressed with the live-stream service Nick provided for the London Ice Varsity 2019. We were excited by his vision and enthusiasm for the project from the beginning and enjoyed working with him throughout. The club has received a huge amount of positive feedback with regards to the professional standard of the stream. We'd like to extend our thanks to Nick for providing an excellent service.
