NewTek TriCaster Brings Live Streaming Capabilities to the Victoria and Albert Museum
The Museum purchased TriCaster equipment to live-stream its events, such as fashion shows and talks on current exhibitions, via the Museum’s video channels that are embedded onto its various Websites. In addition, the V&A team will use TriCaster to stream content to projectors and screens throughout the Museum, and provide video feeds to external Websites. In July 2013, the V&A debuted its live streaming capability by delivering the Jenny Packham Fashion in Motion event from the Museum bringing the excitement and spectacle of the high fashion catwalk to a wider audience.
Peter Kelleher, Motion Media Manager, V&A, said, “Bringing live streaming in-house has given us complete control of the production process and allowed us to tailor the service to our requirements. This equipment enables us to mix, encode and stream within a single unit, making it simple to use and cost effective. The graphics elements and transitions of TriCaster are also extremely useful as they add a professional look to our productions and allow changes to be made quickly and easily.”
Andrew Lewis, Acting Head of Digital Media, Digital Media Department, said, “We have found video to be a very valuable tool for improving interpretation of objects, exhibitions, special projects and events, both on-site and online. Our Digital FuturePlan aims to create a world-class visitor experience using digital technologies while ensuring our digital products are developed to match the V&A's standards for design quality. TriCaster will be one of many brands that we will engage with to help us to fulfill these aims.”
