3xScreen Sports Live Streaming Workflow
An additional layer of
stream-specific production
added at our MCR
Stream-Specific MCR Production
• Broadcast bugs
• Play pre-event promo clips or
slates
• Add tickers to welcome and
update viewers
• Record and loop events at
completion
• Clip and upload event elements
(such as fights) for on-demand
viewing
• Publish multiple languages from
single feed source
• Add commentary
• Scores, lower thirds and other
graphics
• Virtual camera effects to single camera
shoots so they appear to be shot by
multiple cameras
• Half and full-time highlights, play in VTs
Our centralised MCR production is
enabled by LiveU in our workflow
Staff and equipment
efficiencies…
• We don't ship our encoders to events
– which means:
– Higher utilisation of encoding
CPU and input ports
– Easier logistics
– Smaller on-site technical team
– Centralised clipping, uploading
• Prior to the start of the
event, early viewers served by
MCR vision mixers
• OB team free to do their pre-live
set ups and tests
• Link from event monitored and
tuned
• At moment of going live, only ever
a camera take at MCR
• Going-live stress totally removed
No pre-live stress
• Multi-camera production at MCR with cameramen directly connected to
LiveU backpacks
• No on-site production infrastructure required at venue
• Particularly useful when camera operators are mobile or in crowds
• Not suitable when frame or audio synchronisation is required
MCR Camera Switching
Cellular Uplink Vs On-Site Encoding
• Live streaming
decoupled from
availability of internet
at venue
• Use WiFi & Ethernet if
available
• 3/4G or Ku/Ka
broadband satellite
via the LiveU backpack
if not
Cellular Uplink Vs On-Site Encoding
Ka/Ku satellite
complements 3/4G Flexibility
If Only Using Venue Connections…
• Balancing and
redundancy across
available links
• Automatic
adjustment to
changes in link
performance
• Less bandwidth
required – for one or
dual high quality
(H264 High profile)
links
• No Line-of-Sight issues
• No permits
• No security
• No parking
• No long cable runs in public areas =>
health and safety issues
• No microwave links from production
to SNG truck
• No SNG truck and engineer => < £££
Cellular Uplink Vs Satellite Uplink
Non-Live Workflow
• Play out edits from timeline
instead of rendering
• solve FTP issues - assured
delivery, stop and
restart, finish edit and drive
off while uploading or take
LiveU out to dinner
• Complex distribution of clips
from MCR with usual FTP
automation

Editor's Notes

  1. Focus on the benefits of cellular uplink - or internet contribution, including mobile internet - in the live sports streaming workflow - drawing upon specific projects in the discussionCellular Uplink rather than LiveU per seWe have used LU60, LU70 with/without 4G, LU40, started withLU30, LULite, Xtender
  2. The sectors we work in are; Agencies &amp; Marketers; Media &amp; Entertainment; Event &amp; Conference Organisers; Corporates; SPORTSWe principally provide event live video production, event live streaming and event live uplinksExample of FA and VANSDistribution – many events on YT and Facebook – plus other live platformsUK newspaper websitesSites of Event Rights Holders
  3. We do downlink some sports from satellite and live stream it but our general sports live streaming workflow is…Multi-camera OB including replays and graphics – by us or video production partnersUplink to MCR via LiveU
  4. All our productions are done via our MCRPrior to encoding at our MCR, we add an additional layer of stream-specific production (using Tricasters) – discussed in next slide
  5. ** Biggest advantage to us of LiveU in our sports live workflow is that enables an MCR-oriented approach **for some events we add customer-specific identity and graphics at the MCR - ie. for example, we have separately added Netherlands football team and England football team graphics at the MCR, sending tailored live streams for The Netherlands and England Football Associations to their respective platformsTWO DISADVANTAGESExtra staff as MCR always manned - but can do multiple events – six events Sunday – 5 of which transited the MCRDouble encoding looses quality - but LiveU link is High Profile and optimised
  6. Done for football and other events
  7. Give examples, talk about Sports crowdsBrazil presser and training of England football team the other week – remote control of backpack
  8. Talk about VANS Spring ClassicGeneral set upFinal day wash out
  9. Paris Airshow example of link performance changesas we send live contributions to our Master Control Room for all events - this is particularly important as we typically stream multiple HLS and Flash streams (which alone total 8 Mbps as a minimum) and often stream the one event to multiple platforms - YouTube Live, Livestream, UStream, DailyMotion, etc
  10. Cellular Uplink:Live from anywhereNo hassleLimited planningDisadvantage: Not broadcast TV quality for Sports – Complementary, not a replacement
  11. Use Euro 2012 exampleQuestions at end..
