MyEvent brings university graduates together with Magewell


Melbourne-based MyEvent Productions, a company providing live event technical solutions to clients across eastern Australia, took on its largest live streaming project to date, streaming more than 20 simultaneous feeds for RMIT University’s December 2021 graduation event. MyEvent Productions chose Ultra Encode universal live streaming encoders from Magewell to provide the reliability it required.

With RMIT a highly ranked university focusing on technology, design and enterprise, the graduation event included students from more than 200 countries and the client emphasised the importance of graduates and their family and friends sharing the moment – albeit worldwide. "We were tasked with getting live streams of feeds from all 21 presentation stages out to the world," explained Duncan Underwood, live streaming and production manager at MyEvent Productions. "The most we had ever done before was four simultaneous live streams, so we had to bring in additional products."

MyEvent had previously used Magewell solutions on a smaller-scale project for point-to-point delivery of SRT streams. This experience, along with recommendations from industry peers, led Underwood to choose Ultra Encode for the RMIT event. "I'm always talking to other professionals about their experiences, and the Magewell name keeps coming up as a trusty product," he recalled. "So even though the Ultra Encode product itself is fairly new, I had no hesitation in buying multiple units for this project."

MyEvent now owns 17 Ultra Encode units, provided by Corsair Solutions, and hired additional Ultra Encode devices from another production company to round out its needs for this project.

During the graduation event, multiple vision switchers combined live camera feeds and PowerPoint presentations from each stage. SDI outputs from each switcher were routed to the Ultra Encode devices, which encoded them into high-quality, live H.264 streams for viewing through RMIT's multiple YouTube channels.

MyEvent also took advantage of the Magewell Cloud management software to centrally monitor the status of the Ultra Encode units and access individual devices' web-based dashboards. "Magewell Cloud is an exciting development for us," noted Underwood. "It was very useful for the RMIT event, which required us to closely monitor the infrastructure for so many devices and streams."

He continued: "Nobody else in the market is doing what Magewell is doing with the feature set and price point of Ultra Encode, making them an easy choice," he said. "While we bought them specifically for the RMIT project, they're so flexible that there's lots more we can do with them, and they're now our go-to solution."
