Live Streaming SSE Airtricity Dublin Marathon
Live streaming has become increasing popular with organisations as an efficient tool to broadcast their message and promote their brand.
In this case-study we look at a recent project using Livestreaming and LiveU products, how it was done and what outcome was achieved by partnering with Tyrell.
LIVE STREAMING BACK-PACKS
Big Red Box approached Tyrell with a LiveStreaming project which involved renting four LiveU LU500 products mounted on motorbikes to cover the on-location LiveStreaming required.
The LiveU LU500 has a small form-factor combined with exceptional functionality.
Weighing around 1 kg (2.2 lbs), LiveU’s LU500 offers the ultimate combination of high performance and portability. This small sized unit is powered by LiveU’s multi-processor video encoding engine and fourth-generation patented bonding algorithms. With boot time under a minute, the LU500 is essential to journalists broadcasting rapidly changing events and fast action scenes.
