Since the graduation ceremony for Temple University Japan Campus is held at a hotel or similar venue rather than on campus, equipment for live streaming also needs to be brought in and installed in advance. Until using LiveWedge, in addition to cameras and mixers and video/audio equipment, a PC for live streaming and spent several hours set up time were required. Also, HDMI switchers were used to switch between multiple cameras and there was lag when switching screens.
By introducing LiveWedge, they not only reduced the equipment needed but also shortened the setup time. Setup took only about an hour, compared with the previous year where there was no time to take a break beforehand, all the members in charge of streaming were able to take lunch, and the setup time cost was greatly reduced — resulting in positive feedback from everyone involved.
The switching and live streaming were controlled with one LiveWedge, and the monitor video used two displays. Because the event hall was large, HDMI to Ethernet adapters were used. Video effects such as mixing and PinP were controlled on a tablet while Dashboard streaming operation was controlled on a PC using LiveWedge’s PC linkage function. Also social media posting was performed, using a separate PC.
