The Newtek Tricaster TC1 and NDI technology recently powered the live stream of a major sporting event- from an entire time zone away!
Golf’s Western Amateur Championship is an annual event at the Sunset Ridge Country Club in Northfield Illinois. However, television and live production companies never broadcast the event. Production costs are to high for such a niche audience.
Newteks Tricaster TC1 and NDI products were the perfect solution to the problem. Thaler Media was able to stream the event for the first time this year with Newtek technology. The broadcast streamed for 12 hours directly to golfchannel.com.
Recording was affordable and easy.
-Lowell Thaler, President of Thaler Media in North Palm Beach, Fla.
“We were able to produce this event very affordably—at perhaps a tenth the cost—compared to the overhead typically associated with a live broadcast-quality HDTV show ."
The entire broadcast was produced remotely from a studio in North Palm beach, Florida.
