TriCaster keeps TRT World on the air

TURKEY: TRT World was able to continue broadcasting during the recent coup attempt in Turkey thanks to NewTek’s TriCaster Advanced Edition. The live production solution, which is used by the broadcaster’s partner Celebro Media, allowed TRT Global to continue reporting via Facebook Live.

TRT World reports global news from a Turkish perspective 18 hours a day. The channel produces five to six hours of live rolling news each day from its main operation in Istanbul, and its London bureau that is facilitated by Celebro Media. During the recent attempted coup, Turkish news outlets including TRT World’s Istanbul operation were temporarily shut down and the broadcaster turned to Celebro Media for assistance.

‘The management at TRT World wanted to get back on air by any means possible,’ said Wesley Dodd, chief executive for Celebro Media. ‘We do a lot of streaming on Facebook Live, and with the TriCaster Advanced Edition’s live streaming capabilities, it was the obvious option.’

The solution enabled TRT World to produce and stream live news reports from its London journalists via Facebook Live within a very short space of time, and later to stream to YouTube and the TRT World website. As events progressed the team was able to receive additional video reports from around the world, including Istanbul, and incorporate them into the live stream. This ‘emergency transmission stream’ rolled for approximately 15 hours, until the channel was able to get back on air in Istanbul.

‘There was very limited connectivity in Turkey, so TRT World’s Facebook Live stream was something of a lifeline,’ stated Mr Dodd. ‘The social media element also provided a way for people to communicate – there was a huge level of engagement with tens of thousands of people watching live, and then on catch-up later. TriCaster Advanced Edition and Facebook Live enabled us to keep people informed during an important world event.’
