Using cinemas as event spaces is becoming very popular and last month we filmed and streamed a week long event showcasing new TV dramas from across the globe including a red carpet premiere broadcast of Taboo attended by Tom Hardy and Ridley Scott.
With over 15 WaveFX technicians on-site our brief was to provide all the technical AV support including lighting, sound, filming and live streaming across all 7 screens.
We utilised our two LiveStream HD550’s to vision mix simultaneous events and then streamed the HD broadcast to other screens around the venue. Using the in-house LAN network via our RTMP portable server we could relay any event to any of the 7 screens for audience overflow purposes.
One huge benefit in streaming locally via RTMP is there are no venue internet costs, we’ve experienced crazy prices in the past the most expensive being £7000 in Boston to access a 10mb internet connection. (we ended up using bonding our phones and using the 4G network).
The event was a great success and one the crew enjoyed enormously, mainly because they got to watch the latest movies and TV series to be released in 2017 and listen to cast, writers and producers.
Leanne Farrell, Head of special projects and events C21 media commented: This is our second year working with WaveFX across our international four day conference and screenings event.
The efficiency, flexibility, diligence and professionalism they demonstrated during the week, and indeed prior to it, was exemplary. The team were resourceful and reactive, nothing was too much trouble.
A fantastic group of people and an absolute pleasure to work with. We hope to use them again on next year’s event.
