High Tech from the Old World: Satellite Center Helps Oculus create a VR Experience at Preservation Hall
In the world of Virtual Reality, high stability upload speeds are required for the new generation of bandwidth hungry applications. If you want to stream “on location”, you need dedicated upload speeds in the 25 to 60mb range, which most venues cannot supply. Using Satellite Mobile Uplink is the answer.
For a recent presentation from Oculus, the VR headset & hardware maker, Satellite Center and LBIsat provided the necessary dedicated bandwidth. Oculus was able to upload and showcase their new and exciting equipment right from the iconic Preservation Hall in New Orleans French Quarter. The headset and its features were displayed “live” for techies and gamers to preview using a smooth stream of 60mbps x 30mbps via satellite. This is how Satellite Center can be the ideal solution to ensure smooth streaming and speed for a remote link. Whatever product, service you want to feature or event you want to share… don’t let the old world stop you from connecting to the new!
Satellite Center flawlessly provided a 7 channel high definition REMI backhaul for ESPNU last week from Tulane’s Yulman Stadium in New Orleans to ESPN Master Control in Bristol Connecticut.
Connectivity between the points was a 150mb fiber path. Two return channels were also brought to Yulman via fiber from Bristol and demodulated by Satellite Center for use by the production truck.
REMI is short for remote integration which is a new production technology developed by ESPN. It allows for minimal crew on location and the final production to be switched and produced back in Bristol.
This production technique allows for major savings in crewing and travel expenses while still producing a high quality show for ESPN viewers to enjoy. It also allows ESPN to cover more events throughout the year.
