Live X produced all 20 streams for the Teradek Studio at Mojocon 2017 in Galway, Ireland, with only an iPad Pro and four iPhones.
At the Teradek Studio in the Mobile Journalism Conference, hosts David McClelland and Róisín Ní Thomáin interviewed guests in a more talk-show - rather than conference panel - format, allowing them to get into more detail with keynote speakers, and feature additional guests beyond the mainstage lineup.
Our focus on the production side was creating great quality webcasts using truly mobile-ready gear. You can’t get more multicam-and-mobile than Teradek’s Live:Air workflow. Live:Air software on an iPad makes source inputs easy, finding and streaming any devices running Live:Air Remote software on the same network. With Live:Air, we could then switch between four iPhone 6s Plus cameras, while also adding lower-thirds, bugs, slates, and roll-ins, and mixing audio sources....
....Finally, we knew some of our guests wanted to show off their Apps, or other on-screen visuals from their iPhones. Since Live:Air Remote sends only the camera feed to Live:Air, we set up a fifth camera source, for getting the live screen feed from guest iPhones via HDMI, through a Teradek Cube 655.
The Cube, when in Live:Air mode and on the same network, easily connects with Live:Air as another source. This was the only input source where the cabling didn’t start with the Camera adapter. Instead we used the Lightning to HDMI adapter, which also requires tethered power. From there, we simply ran the HDMI to the Cube and connected the Cube to the network switch via CAT6.
