What did they need?
The school wanted a system that would let them broadcast masses and assemblies around campus, but found that actually the same system could be used across the curriculum.
How did we help?
We demoed, installed and continue to support NewTek’s TriCaster, an industry-standard live streaming solution.
What were the benefits?
The school can now create exciting, engaging live broadcasts including multiple sources and events can be recorded and sent straight to YouTube without secondary editing. The school can not only use TriCaster to produce and record evidence for assessment, but they can offer it as a service to third parties who rent their facilities, making them a more attractive venue. Despite being easy to use, the functionality of TriCaster makes it ideal for stretching higher ability pupils and introducing them to a professional workflow.
“People at events are genuinely wowed by it. It engages them, because they don’t see something like this often, and it means we can offer events at a professional level.”
James Steadman, media technician, St John’s Catholic Comprehensive School.
