Streaming Fencing with Matrox VS4 and Telestream Wirecast

How KABCOM captured and streamed the entire 2013 competitive fencing season--including the International Challenge in Paris and the world championshops in Budapest--leveraging the Matrox VS4 quad capture and ISO recording card and Telestream Wirecast streaming software.

Streaming the Fencing Season

Implemented at the start of the fencing season, the VS4/Wirecast solution has been used for many events to date. The International Challenge of Paris in January 2013 attracted 67,424 online viewers. Another important event streamed lived was the World Championships in Budapest in August.

KABCOM sometimes covers two fencing competitions concurrently so they maintain two streaming systems, both rack-mounted. “Customer satisfaction is a key factor in our business, but flexibility and the ability to work in good conditions are also very important. The setup timeframe prior to a fencing competition is tight so we generally have to install 4500 kg of equipment in a single day. The streaming system is just a small part of all that gear, but we need it be reliable, and easy to get up and running. As far as we’re concerned, the Matrox VS4 system is ‘the product’ for our live streaming production needs.”

“After the success of our new system this season, we now have an overbooked calendar for the next one!"
