Dejero And Dazzl Facilitate Uninterrupted Coverage For Sea Events

News Image
Dejero and Dazzl are facilitating uninterrupted coverage for French production company, Sea Events, as it live streams the dramatic departures and arrivals of each stage of the Solitaire du Figaro sailing race, currently taking place over 1,830 miles across some of Europe’s roughest waters.

The combination of Dejero's mobile transmitter and Dazzl’s cloud video platform enables Sea Events' production crew to easily access tools for live production, live clipping, rapid editing and video distribution from the various stages of the race between France, Ireland and Spain, all while maintaining reliable internet connectivity.

In order to capture live shots of the skippers at the start and end of each stage, and to be as close to the action as possible, Sea Events positions its crew at multiple vantage points around the harbour; using iPhones on the shore and a drone for a birds eye view. On board its ‘production’ boat, a SONY PMW 400 camera with a stabilized lens connects to a Dejero EnGo mobile transmitter, which is designed to withstand the harsh environment at sea.

"When using EnGo we don’t need to worry about the movement and positioning of the boat in order to gain the best view points – no matter how far away we are from the coast," explained Erwan Riquier, CEO, Sea Events. "We don't even have to think about switching to different network carriers or constantly finding the most reliable network when we cross borders or worry about patchy coverage."

The ruggedized EnGo is equipped with six integrated global modems, global roaming connectivity services and interchangeable SIM modules, and utilizes Dejero’s Smart Blending Technology to create a resilient internet connection by aggregating multiple networks into a single service. This allows for the transmission of high-quality live video with latency as low as 0.8 seconds.

The camera, iPhone and drone sources are streamed over RTMP to the Dazzl cloud server for use by the producer. The production director, located in the arrival harbour, and two remote commentators, further engage with the event's 30,000-strong Facebook Live audience.

The 30 solo skippers of the 2021 ‘Solitaire du Figaro’ are expected to cross the race’s finish line at the Loire-Atlantique (Saint-Naizre), Western France, on September 16. Sea Events have been live streaming the departures and arrivals of each stage of the event since it began on August 22.
