Live Streaming and Video Calling

In these uncertain times, the whole entertainment industry is having to adapt to public health concerns and limitations imposed on talent and crew movement and limited audience numbers.

Remote participation of your guests, contributors or contestants could help you to keep creating content without too much risk.  Kinetic Pixel have vast experience of creating and delivering both the engineering architecture and the production workflow to allow your production to keep moving.  Our video solutions are all fully broadcast-ready, enabling HD video at 50 fps with synchronised stereo audio and when required full backup and redundancy.

Video Calling Systems

As well as quiz shows, Kinetic Pixel are experts in video calling systems.  Our history with these technologies goes back to the early part of the decade, where we were invited by Microsoft to be part of the Beta programme for the Skype TX platform.  Our team had previous experience in the design and rollout of early prototypes of this technology, so we were key users and helped shape the direction of the platform. We provided this technology and our expertise for Text Santa (ITV Productions), Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution, the Scottish Referendum coverage (BBC), Virgin : Disruptors and the ground-breaking Embarrassing Bodies : Live From The Clinic.

As the decade moved on, Skype TX was retired and replaced with a number of different products.  Kinetic Pixel chose to partner with Quicklink and quickly gained plenty of experience with the Quicklink TX platform and provided feedback and advice to the engineering team on how broadcast demands could shape the product. We demonstrated this expertise as part of the show-critical systems providing laptop kits for kids at home to contribute to the CBBC show Last Commanders.

Live Streaming

We’ve live streamed more events than we can keep track of, from the recent Valley Aid benefit concert for flood relief in South Wales to non-TX pilots and product launches.  We use OBS and Wirecast streaming software running on our custom designed graphics and streaming servers at full HD or higher.  Along with live streaming, we can augment your production with live graphics using the same technology and software as some of the world’s biggest quiz shows.

Call us or email info@kineticpixel.tv now to discuss how we can bring our technical expertise to your production, even with a short lead time.
