The demand for live streaming was rising before the Covid-19 pandemic , but it's now an essential part of the new way of living – whether that's for industry events, music concerts, weddings and places of worship, or just staying in touch with friends.
"The number of requests and requirements for live streaming have increased significantly for us in the last two years," says Thorsten Rühle, managing director at Delta Vision Studios, a German media company specialising in corporate films, live event broadcasts and webcasts.
"Depending on the customer's requirements, we have two to 10 cameras on site. The outputs from these are transmitted or streamed via satellite or internet connection using an OB van or a mobile live control room. The cameras and presentations are mixed via the control room, and the produced streams then often end up on specially rented servers, which then distribute the content."
