Case Study – Club Sports
Gymnastics is a sport that requires multiple cameras due to the varying nature of the routines and the large spaces they are performed in. The Centre Elite Classic posed the added challenge of two gymnasiums running events simultaneously requiring thirteen cameras to be used. The challenge was how to enable parents and friends to view their favorite athlete without the high cost of a typical live video streaming system while staying in the constraints of the technical infrastructure that was available in the venue. By using the VersaStreamer SDI streaming video encoder and a selection of purchased and borrowed cameras, more than 900 people were able to enjoy the meet and celebrate the athletes incredible achievements
The Centre Elite Classic all volunteer tech team benefited from the simple configuration and setup that is available on the VersaStreamer SDI. With an easy to configure web-based interface, all Videon Streaming Video Encoders can stream to any destination using RTMP at the push of a button. To help offset equipment costs and operational expenses, the club selected a platform that enabled them to charge for viewing the stream. The results were stunning and many people commented how they appreciated being able to watch the meet remotely with multiple camera angles
Unique for its size and one-button go-live operation, the VersaStreamer line of streaming encoders are ideal for club sports organizations wanting to enable remote viewing of their events. VersaStreamer SDI lived up to its purpose by providing the most versatile streaming solution possible for the Centre Elite Classic gymnastics meet so that friends and family could enjoy the full range of athletic performances that were on display.
