This marked the fourth year we have provided livestreaming services for Knox College‘s Commencement ceremony in Galesburg, IL on their Old Main lawn area. This space lends itself to beautiful visuals of the ceremony with the historic building as a backdrop. This year, we provided video production, livestreaming of the ceremony to their YouTube channel, event audio, closed captioning, and large LED walls.
We covered the ceremony with five cameras, which included a 25′ jib and aerial drone. All of the cameras were switched live in our mobile production studio and streamed live to YouTube via our bonded cellular livestreaming encooder with redundant backhaul. The event was simultaneously captioned with open captions appearing on the large LED walls and closed captioning provided to YouTube viewers. Over 800 unique viewers watched the live commencement event online.
We also provided two large LED walls for for the crowds to see the speakers and graduates as they walked across the stage, as well as the closed captions. In addition, we also provided all event audio with mics on the main stage, choir and jazz band with two line arrays. Portable power generator equipment was also brought on site to support the event’s power needs.
