LiveU Brings Ballito Pro International Surf Event Live to a Global Audience
Ballito Pro, and its production team White Hot Media, have partnered with LiveU to provide dynamic live coverage of the world’s longest professional surfing event taking place annually on the KwaDukuza coast in South Africa. LiveU’s portable LU600 HEVC units were used to provide comprehensive coverage of the main surfing competition and different aspects of the event, including extreme sports and music concerts, soaking up the 14-day event’s unique festival atmosphere. The event, presented by Billabong, was streamed live every day to the World Surf League website and Facebook page, which has over six million followers.
Roaming cameras with LiveU units were used on the beach, around the different venues, and even on a jet ski to capture the surfers riding the waves close up. LiveU facilitated more layers to the production with various multiple shots streamed live every day.
Greg Kitto, Producer, Ballito Pro, said, “In the past, we were limited by fiber connectivity which meant we weren’t free to roam around. In this 50th edition celebratory year, we were determined to bring more of the event to our followers around the world. LiveU’s bonded cellular technology has offered us greater portability and reliability, enabling us to stream high quality video from new angles. The images have been amazing, enabling our viewers to experience all aspects of the festival online. We took the production to the water for the first time ever in a World Surf League QS 10 000 event and were able to show the beauty of Ballito from the surfers point of view. 2018 saw us increase our online viewers and attracted new TV audiences, with live feeds used by the international media.”
The international surf competition attracts The World Surf League’s top ranked performers, together with the cream of South Africa’s men, women and junior surfers for the 14 day festival of high performance action in the waves of Willard.
Yaal Eshel, VP Sales, LiveU, said, “We’re delighted to have an important contribution in this amazing sporting event in South Africa. Ballito Pro has all the ingredients for engaging an online audience, with its beautiful scenery, music, atmosphere and world-class surfing competition. Seeing the feed from our LU600 HEVC streaming live from the jet ski truly illustrates the power of the live experience.”

EditShare Gets High Marks at Liverpool Screen School Posted: 06/12/2018
EditShare Gets High Marks at Liverpool Screen School
EditShare a technology leader in intelligent shared storage and media management solutions, today announced that The Liverpool Screen School has upgraded the existing media infrastructure to the latest EditShare XStream EFS storage platform as well as added EditShare Flow media asset management (MAM), AirFlow for remote access, and QScan automated quality assurance to support its Journalism, Media Production and Film Studies programs. Noted for their “theory and hands-on practice” approach to education, the school enjoys an internationally recognized reputation for their work as well as the strong links they have forged with companies across the creative and digital sector including the BBC, ITV, and Lime Pictures. “Our student experience spans a broad range of technical expertise,” states Darcy O’Bree, Technical Resource Manager, Liverpool Screen School. “The diversity of our courses requires us to teach a range of different technical methods for realizing the student's creative vision. The students do conventional film production. They do television production, including live and thematic style TV. They’re even getting into things like projection mapping, event visuals, color management, and content quality control (QC).” O’Bree adds, “With increasing student numbers, we were about to hit a wall with capacity in the existing system. Also, the way the system was originally set up five years ago, it wasn’t integrated with the university’s main network, which limited access.”
