July has been an action-packed month for the team at ReDDs Media and the 11th of July was no exception.
When Nielsen Brandbank first approached us just weeks before the event, we knew this last minute partnership would be a great one. For their Summer Symposium 2019, or AGM for you and me, we provided a 4 camera Full HD Livestream to YouTube for their worldwide associates and employee's unable to attend in person.
For this event we used our staple live event camera of choice, the JVC GY-HM890. A fantastic and versatile camera able to capture the all detail and colour on stage. Equipped with a Fujinon F1.6-3.0 20x Lens, we knew we'd be able to zoom into all the action even from a long distance away. To mix the 4 cameras, videos, graphics and live Skype interview together, we used the powerful and reliable Blackmagic Design ATEM system, fed via HD-SDI direct from our cameras through our Blackmagic Design Studio Videohub digital routing system. To broadcast this uncompressed live video mix we used the Teradek Vidiu's outstanding live H.264 compression and SRTMP streaming capabilities.
What's great video without even better audio? For the best audio quality we could deliver, we used our Yamaha TF6 40 channel Digital mixer fed over DANTE, a Digital Network Audio system that allows multiple channels of high quality audio to be sent over existing network infrastructure to our broadcast audio console as well as the Front of House console in the venue, all over a single Ethernet cable. To capture the sound in the room, as well as audience reaction we used a stereo matched pair of Rode cardioid condenser mics to provide a rich and wide sound stage to the Nielsen associates watching from abroad.
It has been fantastic to work with Nielsen Brandbank for the first time this year. To find out more about what we can do for your event, why not request a quote or read more about our Live Video Broadcast services.
