Freecaster further boosts Live Video Streaming with BCE at IBC2018

Following a successful joint live streaming coverage of the interviews at the Montreux Volley Masters, BCE decided to strengthen its partnership with Freecaster.

Provider of extended streaming services to key customers such as Tomorrowland, MXGP, Tag Heuer, LVMH, RTBF to name but a few, Freecaster’s streaming solution can be customised to meet the needs of the most demanding and most creative customer. Recent deployments included players with multiple video or multi camera feeds in one player all in adaptive streaming.

This technology was recently combined to BCE’s expertise, platform and network at the recent Montreux Volleyball Master (MVM). During the 6 days of the event, BCE and Freecaster teamed up to produce and stream live interviews from BCE’s StudioTalk platform.

The flexibility and portability of BCE’s StudioTalk was used to set-up a fully automated multi camera interview studio. Freecaster’s streaming platform was used to publish the StudioTalk feeds to MVM website and social network accounts. The feeds were also recorded for VoD purposes.

BCE created the channel branding for the event, perfectly integrated within StudioTalk, the team was able to trigger the different secondary events with the synchronized graphics and effects.

“BCE and Freecaster worked hand in hand to deliver outstanding services. The team was always available and ensured the best results for Montreux Volley Masters. We were impressed by the quality of the productions and the seamless streaming quality for our viewers” comments Maria Möller, Media & Marketing Manager at Montreux Volley Masters.

Freecaster will be present at the IBC2018 on BCE’s stand 7.C37 in hall 7. Discover the project “Online video platform for MXGP-TV” and stay tuned for more projects in the following weeks.
