Create Engage chooses Kiloview Solution
Digistor are providing Kiloview live-streaming products (REN-1 Cards, RD-300 Cards) to small online event team Create Engage
Create Engage are a small team of event professionals specialising in providing online event and production solutions. They have successfully executed numerous online campaigns and events for their clients by increasing engagement, audience reach, revenue and awareness for their branded content. Their mission is to enhance physical and online event engagement through digital and internet-based solutions.
Create Engage director Luke Hammonds explains, “We’re passionate about digital video technology and the impact that it has on business and brand communication. We had heard of Kiloview as a quality player in the market. They were offering these small devices that could send and receive video in every format we need over LAN and WAN. They were also rack mountable and hot-swappable, so we needed to try them out as the need for such solutions increased ten-fold due to COVID-19.”
Digistor supplies Create Engage with Kiloview products for live streaming video production whether its onsite for hybrid events, studio-based events or in control hubs for fully virtual events and for linking remote presenters and remote live sites together using IP-based video codecs.
In recent months Create Engage has purchased Kiloview REN-1 Cards, RD-300 Cards, 1RU Cradles and 3RU Cradles.
Hammonds explained, “Kiloview fits our equipment build ethos really well. We design our encoder racks to be mobile, modular, turn-key systems that can be tweaked to any spec, up or down, per event and only require onsite power to be fully operational. Kiloview rack-mountable cards and cradles are perfectly designed for this approach. We can slide in whatever size cradle and card combo is needed for the project into a rack system and get it onsite, all pre-configured and ready to go.”
As Kiloview products are rack mountable and the cards are hot swappable, Create Engage truly customise their streaming racks to custom-suit each individual project.
Hammonds added, “A common set up is to use a REN-1 card to stream to a primary streaming player on our platform as well as outputting broadcast PGM over the LAN via NDI|HX for viewing in another part of the venue or in multi-view and using a second REN-1 card to stream to a backup streaming player. Quite often we will use the above-mentioned solution as well as adding an RD-300 card to a live feed from a remote site as well as another REN-1 card to send a feed back to that remote site via SRT. We access and control the Kiloview GUI mainly via Raspberry PIs which frees up our laptop stock for other duties.”
