We love reading stories about our products being used in real broadcast environments so when the Extreme Sailing Series selected Wirecast to stream live HD content to their viewers we were really excited.
Using Telestream Wirecast, the event’s organizers stream live HD content from each race over their dedicated YouTube channel. To further enhance the stunning visual content, 3D sailing analytics provided by SAP are embedded within the live stream.
At each event, the production team has a multi-camera setup on shore and on the water with cameras capturing every moment of the racing. These feed into a central control room where the TV production takes place. A dedicated streaming operator receives two feeds from the video production crew: one of SAP 3D Graphics and another of the live TV production of the race. They use capture cards to bring the feeds into a computer running Wirecast and then stream the event with the graphics to a Wowza cloud server and YouTube.
“Wirecast live streaming helps us massively since it allows us to showcase our event to a global audience using stunning quality live HD pictures, which can be accessed anywhere via the internet.” Lavers continued.
