Breaking News! Fast Response Live Streaming Services for i24 News
Rapid-response news streaming services for i24News
With over a decade’s experience in live streaming services and a varied suite of OB and connectivity solutions, Streaming Tank is a premium provider of breaking news coverage. When i24News asked us to help cover the terror attack in London we were ready and able to offer support, having already covered terror attacks like the one in Belgium.
We delivered a camera, lighting, tripod and LiveU to the centre of London to meet the i24 reporter within 60 minutes. And we maintained the service for an extended period, supplying a rotating shift of camera operators. This allowed i24’s news reporting to continue across time zones from London to the US.
For those longer jobs, Streaming Tank has unbranded SNG trucks which are strategically placed around the UK. These vehicles stream HD video via LiveU or over 4G & Ka-Satellite to provide extra resilience. The addition of a Ka-sat means we can go ‘live’ quickly from remote locations that are not well served by the 3G/4G networks. From a production perspective, all are equipped with IFB and wireless camera links back to the truck. What’s more, they are ‘journo-friendly’! Each vehicle can provide reliable Wi-Fi access to the internet. This allows the reporter to remain in constant contact with their base, and stay ahead of the competition as stories develop or new events occur.
Vehicles provide everything from standalone streaming capabilities up to multi-camera productions. For your ‘Breaking News’ requirements, select from either:
- Stand-up single person camera setup with:
- JVC GY-HM850 HD Camera
- Led Panel Lighting with stands
- Tripod and LiveU LU500
2. Outside Broadcast truck with integrated production and streaming facilities including:
- Cobham H.264 RF Camera System
- LiveU LU200 / LU500 / LU700
- LiveU Roof Mounted Xtender
- Ka-Satellite Connectivity
Put simply, with Streaming Tank, you get the same reliability and comfort you would expect from a traditional OB unit but at a fraction of the cost.
