In the pulsating heart of the Las Vegas Festival Grounds, where the excitement of live music thrives, BC Live Productions faced a unique challenge: delivering flawless streaming feeds from three different stages to a multitude of destinations amidst the sprawling venue's connectivity constraints. With an audience capacity of up to 80,000 attendees and the intricacies of transmitting high-quality content across varied locations, BC Live sought an innovative solution to conquer this formidable task.

Challenges Faced: The task at hand was daunting. BC Live needed to transmit Program feeds from three stages to diverse locations, including local production offices, artist trailers, LED towers around the festival grounds, and off-site monitoring stations. With the vastness of the venue and the unpredictability of internet connectivity, sustaining consistent, high-quality streaming over multiple days was a significant hurdle to overcome.

Innovative Solutions: To tackle these challenges head-on, BC Live leveraged Teradek's cutting-edge technology, employing Prism Flex encoders at each stage's control room and harnessing Teradek's Core platform for seamless orchestration.

Streamlined Monitoring and Custom Solutions: BC Live customized monitoring solutions for different stakeholders, utilizing Core Workspaces with stringent security measures to grant access via email and SMS. The deployment of user-friendly AppleTV4K decoders equipped with the Core TV App facilitated easy selection of stages for monitoring at production stations across the venue. Additionally, a custom multiview of all stages and local weather stats was seamlessly integrated into the Core Workspace, enhancing operational efficiency.

Tailored Solutions for Specific Needs: Private spaces such as artist areas received tailored solutions, with SRT transmissions and multi-channel decoders enabling technicians to switch between stages effortlessly. LED towers strategically positioned across the festival grounds seamlessly integrated Prism Flex Decoders, allowing for dynamic display cycles of ads, on-stage feeds, and important messages.
