Producing a live show from the exhibition floor: What’s the worst that could happen?

At Grabyo we like to put our money where our mouth is. That’s why at IBC 2022, we set out to produce a live show, entirely in the cloud, using the exhibition internet (if you know, you know).

For this PoC our equipment was simple – one high-grade Blackmagic camera, two Dejero EnGo 265 encoders, two smartphones and two laptops.

Our show format was two presenters at Dejero’s booth discussing their IBC takeaways, while our technical director was situated at the Grabyo booth, across the exhibition hall, producing the show. We also had an assistant producer working in London, 223 miles away, supporting our director.

Watch as our director, James Morse, walks through how it went in the video below.

Video transmission and cloud production

To facilitate the show’s transmission and power our cloud platform, we split our connectivity between our IBC show floor WiFi, running at 10 Mbps up/down, and Dejero EnGo’s bonded cellular connectivity over 4G.

Our on-premise high-grade camera and supporting smartphone transmitted their video feeds via the Dejero EnGo encoder running over bonded cellular.

The smartphone capturing our director on the job was transmitted through another EnGo encoder, but this time over the show floor WiFi, which was stabilized by the EnGo’s Internet Gateway feature.

Our director’s Control Room within Grabyo Producer ran entirely on the IBC show floor WiFi, while our assistant producer collaborated in the same Control Room over their home WiFi connection.
