Live Event Video Streaming Scotland
In December 2012, The Telegraph suggested that 2013 would likely be ‘Wifi’s year’. Apparently, mobile broadband and, in particular, the introduction of 4G, would be overshadowed by increased availability of WIFI hotspots.
We’re not so sure. Yes, it is true that the use of hotspots in the days leading up to Christmas last year were three times higher than 2011, but if you’ve ever looked at your smartphone only to have your hopes of mobile browsing dashed with a GPRS icon, you’ll be forgiven for not being quite so enthusiastic.
The team at Precise have had their fair share of mobile broadband troubles recently, too. Earlier this year, we introduced our live video streaming service. It has, without wishing to blow our trumpet too hard, been a fantastic success. Event organisers can’t get enough of it, and for good reason. It turns what could be a closed, internal event into a worldwide spectacle, viewable by anyone with an internet connection.
However, recently we’ve turned up to a few venues only to discover that there is either no WIFI access or any form of 3G coverage. No web access means no video streaming. And that’s bad news.
It hasn’t put us off, though. No, in true Precise style, we’ve risen to the challenge. This lack of mobile internet access needed to be conquered, and we’ve got just the solution.
We know a thing or two about mobile stages, but we are also now able to bring with us our own source of mobile broadband – via satellite! We’re the only company in Scotland that can do this in conjunction with live video streaming and we’re rather excited about it.
The satellite connection opens up a world of possibilities when it comes to video streaming. No longer will we be confronted with lack of broadband problems, as we’ll have it in our back pocket (not literally, we might add – there’s some serious gear involved), but we will also be able to provide video streaming for pretty much any scenario. Holding a conference in a field? No problem – we can ensure your external audience will be able to listen, watch and take part, no matter where you are.
We’re heading to Kilmarnock next week for another police conference, the venue for which is sitting in the middle of a network coverage black spot. Thankfully, our satellite will now be in tow, offering 99.97% guaranteed uptime for the entire event!
