Live social media broadcast let gymnastic fans watch Andreea Raducan Gymnastics Cup online
Professional streaming with Axis solutions
“We looked for a trusted partner, able to quickly and easily deploy a professional streaming solution and we found such a partner in Axis Communications. Both ourselves and the fans that couldn’t come to the event, greatly enjoyed the live broadcast of the gymnasts’ performances.” Andreea Răducan.
To provide access for the general public to the seventh edition of the Andreea Răducan Gymnastics Cup, organizers of the event decided to broadcast the competition on Facebook and YouTube – a feat requiring a live streaming solution.
The gymnasium inside the A.I.Cuza Technical College in Bârlad, where the event took place, used five Axis network cameras to individually monitor all competition areas. In order to coordinate and broadcast images on Facebook and YouTube, the hardware solution was completed by CamStreamer, a Netrex streaming application that can be directly deployed on Axis cameras and allows live social media and web-based broadcasts.
The combination of Axis network cameras and Netrex software provided gymnastics fans the possibility to watch the entire event online. More than 120 gymnasts from 15 Romanian gymnastics clubs starred in the live broadcast which captured all of the main contest areas, uneven parallels, vault, balance beam, floor and compound individual contest, each covered by a dedicated Axis camera.
