Streaming Salsa: Producing the 2012 World Latin Dance Finals Webcast

The 3rd Annual World Latin Dance Cup Finals drew more than 600 competitors from more than 40 countries, all hoping to be chosen champions of Latin dancing. At the finals—held December 13-15, 2012 at the Miami Airport Convention Center (MACC)—the dancers performed energetic, expressive Latin dances before a packed auditorium. With global interest in this colorful, electrifying and passionate competition, Albert Torres Productions, the event organizer, asked Mobeon to produce a live, multicamera webcast of the finals for the third straight year. Each year, Mobeon—a live broadcast production company and new media consultancy in Santa Monica, Calif.—sent a video crew to the MACC, set up a few HD cameras, and produced all aspects of the high-quality annual webcast, which was streamed in standard definition. Mobeon CEO Mark Alamares decided they would use Telestream's Wirecast Pro live streaming production software for the 2012 World Latin Dance Cup Finals as they had done the previous year. For the 2011 finals, when the Mobeon crew brought two Sony HD camera signals into Wirecast via FireWire ports on an Apple MacBook Pro, they were extremely pleased with the quality of the webcast and the positive viewer response. Streaming Plus ISO Record For The 2012 World Latin Dance Cup Finals, Alamares says, "I wanted to raise the production bar even higher. Besides going from two to three HD cameras, I also wanted to ISO record each camera's HD signal while switching between them for the live program stream, which was delivered in standard definition." ISO recording would allow Albert Torres—a world-renowned Latin music and dance promoter—to repurpose the raw 1080p HD footage into a documentary, among other video projects. read more...
