Ideal Systems provides NDI and AV infrastructure for ITAP 2020


Ideal Systems has provided NDI and AV infrastructure for ITAP 2020, Singapore Expo & Max Atria’s first MICE (Meetings, incentives, conferences and exhibitions) event since Covid-19. The hybrid physical and online event with local and virtual attendees and panelists attracted over 5,000 registered attendees, while 100 invited guests were physically present for the opening ceremony with guest of honour, Singapore Deputy Prime Minister Heng Swee Keat.

Ideal Systems provided a solution based on NewTekTM NDI at the heart of the event control and command centre. The system used the advanced functionality of the new NewTekTM TriCaster 2 Elite which provided the Live Call Connect feature. This enabled integration of multiple remote panelists who joined by video-call using Zoom, Skype TX and Microsoft Teams. Video calls were converted into unique NDI IP inputs which could be switched, mixed and controlled independently by the TriCaster 2 Elite. This enabled the virtual panelists to be presented together in their sessions with the local moderator and local panelists on the stage screen in the main theatre. Virtual participants appeared on the 10m by 3m LED wall on the stage, also provided by Ideal Systems, and simultaneously online as a unified interactive panel of experts. The TriCaster 2 Elite was controlled by NewTek’s 2-Stripe Control Panel, which was paired with the Video Mix Engine in the TriCaster to manage all the discreet NDI IP streams of the panelists along with camera control of the Panasonic NDI PTZ cameras in the main auditorium and all of the scaling and mixing and graphics for the stage and web outputs.

“SingEx was delighted to have partnered with Ideal Systems to build our digital production and broadcasting capabilities to support our first hybrid event,” said Ang Chee Chiang, general manager, Centre Management, SingEx Venues. “Ideal Systems worked closely with our technical team to design and build a fully functional system in a tight time frame. They also trained and upskilled our production team and operators on the new system, shared valuable insights and advice, leading to the flawless execution of a very successful hybrid event.”

Added Fintan Mc Kiernan, CEO of Ideal Systems Singapore: “This was a great experience for us to use the latest NewTek NDI IP video technologies to drive a live international event of this scale and we are honoured to work with companies like SingEx who have great technical foresight to leverage these new IP video technologies to overcome the challenges presented by Covid-19.”
