Bright Spark live streams Instrumenta event
Working alongside New Media Lincs, Bright Spark Studios was commissioned to live stream a multi-camera production at the Drill Hall, Lincoln.
As part of the BBC's Ten Pieces project, the Instrumenta was produced by a group of young producers - from four secondary schools in Lincoln. Supported by Orchestras Live, Lincolnshire One Venues, CLS, University of Lincoln and the City of London Sinfonia.
Two concerts were performed by the City of London Sinfonia on March 3rd 2016. To make the event available to the widest possible audience, the afternoon concert was live streamed to allow schools to view without attending the venue.
Students from the University of Lincoln's Media Production degree operated the cameras and vision-mixed the production. Bright Spark Studios encoded the video and streamed live to Lincolnshire One Venue's YouTube account.
Due to poor broadband connectivity at the venue, we supplied a 4G uplink to successfully broadcast the event.
Our compact 6-channel vision mixer and rack-mounted stream encoder meant that we could deliver a robust service with a small footprint.
New Media Lincs Director, Hazel Donnelly said:
I have had some lovely emails from the students thanking us for the experience of working on such a great project and for being given the opportunity to gain such terrific practical skills. They were all really buzzing at the end of it all.
