Our streaming rig allows us the flexibility to control real-time switching between multiple live video cameras, while dynamically mixing in other source media, such as presentation slides, pre-roll content, external video, static imagery or music. We have the flexibility and full customisability to display text slides such as “Live stream starting soon”, intervals, or “Thanks for watching” information.
We the used a reliable, robust streaming service that was embedded into Graduway’s website and branded accordingly. We then were able to supply our client with valuable data such as user traceability, viewing statistics and geographical data from anyone who watched the stream around the world. This information was invaluable to the client for future events and live streams.
For the event, we had two camera positions feeding directly to our streaming rig to mix the video feeds. During the live stream, the Director focused on communicating with the camera positions to instruct and produce the streamed video content. The Director’s job was to make sure the live stream maintained focus, whether that be the speaker or the presentation of the room. This also meant that the full resolution recording of the day was recorded, live edited and ready to be uploaded as an “on-demand” version immediately post the event.
The British Museum had also agreed to use their in house cameras to stream to the main auditorium that was acting as an overflow room. On-site, we noticed the quality in which it was being displayed was poor so we offered to set up the AV team with a link to our stream, offering the overflow audience a much better quality and comprehensive viewing experience which the client was thankful for.
