Case Study – Multi-location Live Events
Live event production is a high stakes endeavor. Every element from the in-person production to the virtual or remote stream must be perfect. Now, imagine the stakes if the events being streamed were able to influence a political election. This is the environment that BNY Professional was operating in when they selected the VersaStreamer 4K for individual camera feeds and production studio streaming to social networks, broadcasters, and campaign websites. The BNY team needed a reliable self-contained video streaming encoder that could be pre-configured and sent to multiple locations where a non-technical operator could start the stream with a single-button, while delivering the same quality of broadcast television.
Once the VersaStreamer 4K was setup and configured by the BNY team, any campaign staffer could operate the unit without needing a BNY person on site. This was essential since there were as many as 100 separate events needing to be streamed each week. The campaign was able to focus on the event rather than worry about technical issues. With the publicity around this particular candidate and the events being held, it was not uncommon for the stream to be delivered to broadcast television stations as well as social platforms using the built-in SRT and simple RTMP configurability
Unique for its compact size and one-button go-live operation, the VersaStreamer line of streaming encoders are ideal for live event production companies wanting to enable better streaming experiences for their clients. VersaStreamer 4K lived up to its purpose by providing the most versatile streaming solution possible for BNY so that their client’s constituents and the public at large were able to receive the news and information being delivered regardless of where they were
