An SNP Conference, pre hardware encoding days

Live Productions need HARDWARE

After a period of utilising multiple Macbook Pro's with software encoding + hardware capture devices ( one per streaming target) , we have upgraded to entirely hardware based setups to ensure reliability and quality

We have invested in a variety of 4K HD-SDI cameras, vision mixers, capture and monitoring hardware devices to ensure the best possible quality.

A selection of the main items we have at our disposal is below, in many cases we'll have multiples.

    CAMERAS
    Blackmagic Ursa Mini Pro 4.6K

    A flexible Broadcast camera for outdoor or indoor use

    Blackmagic Studio 4K

    Indoor cameras best used in studio environments, with built in tally and comms. we have a wide selection of zoom, superzoom and prime MFT lenses.

    Blackmagic Micro Studio 4K

    Ideal for close up/ fixed shots, we tend to use for inside pianos, back of stage etc..

    PTZ Optics 20X-SDI-GY-G2 Camera's

    Remote head, great for stage use and preprogrammed sequences. Very flexible as video, communications and power can all be run over a single Cat8 100m 10Gbps cable.

    We've got the Joy4 controller for these , and it'll handle 6 cameras.

    We also have API access so we can manage the camera's progamatically ( python seems to work well)

    MIXERS

    A powerful 20 input mixer, capable of 2 seperate mixes, loads of aux's which we like!

    DECIMATORS
    Decimator Design MD-HX HDMI/SDI Cross Converter for 3G/HD/SD

    Don't allow anyone on your job if they don't have at least one of these.

    (We've got 3).

    OPERATOR COMMS

    For a while we went fancy and tried embedding comms over SDI, but some things just work pretty well as they are.

    For social media streaming, we can relay to Facebook, Twitter and YouTube as required, often from a single source

    Live Broadcast Features

    In addition to the actual stream, we can provide a range of interactive features to bring the event to your users.
    This includes:

    • Slide synchonisation
    • Viewers can submit questions ( via email, audio or video messages)
    • 2 way interaction, live viewer webcam can be brought into the event.
    • Social Media integration,. hook up your facebook + twitter accounts.

      • Presentation running late, no problem we can push messages to clients.
      • Unexpected or changed slides can be dealt with in real time.
      • in fact all aspects of the broadcast are configurable in real time.

    Streaming Capacity

    As we own and run our own racks of high specification servers we can handle events of any scale. Whether you need to broadcast to 5 people or 50,000 we can and have handled it.

    For the largest events we have a number of partners and cloud resources who we can spread load across.

    Ultra low latency

    We can also do ultra low latency, and reliably get 2s latency globally.

    This is often also useful for when events need sync across clients.
