NewTek TriCaster streams The Experience to the world

NewTek TriCaster streams The Experience to the world

Published: WORSHIP

WORLD: The world's largest gospel concert took place in Lagos, Nigeria, on 6th December. To bring the concert live to a worldwide audience, Highway Communications was supplied with NewTek’s TriCaster from distributor 3D Storm.

‘The Experience is a unique event worldwide and one of the most important concerts in Nigeria,’ said Michael Ogundeji, director of Highway Limited. ‘We were honoured to be able to share this experience with the world, using all the capabilities of TriCaster.’

The production of the live concert was carried out by David Ayeni from Highway Limited London – 3D Storm partner and NewTek reseller in Nigeria. Highway Limited was in charge of the live production workflow design, including the camera setup, the creation and implementation of the motion graphics for ads breaks, as well as the transitions and logo set on the animation buffers.

For such a big event the production setup was heavy, with 13 cameras needed to cover the full stadium. Mr Ayeni therefore chose to use two TriCasters, a TriCaster 8000 on which he connected seven cameras, and a TriCaster 800 series with the other six cameras. The outputs from both TriCasters were connected to each other on the eighth channel. The six cameras on the TriCaster 800 series were sending content via the auxiliary output into the TriCaster 8000.

Both TriCasters were used for transmission to television networks in Nigeria and abroad, such as OHTV London. The instant live streaming was operated by the TriCaster on a vendor's site for distribution to other linked sites. The TriCaster 800 series fed the screens located in the stadium while the TriCaster 8000 was used to send content for broadcast on television and for the online viewers as well.

‘TriCaster was the perfect choice to broadcast this event, as it could handle the complicated set up and was able to create and send content for a live audience of 500,000 people, and for seven million people watching the live concert on television,’ added Mr Ogundeji.
