The first use of Streamline 2 was for the University of Gloucestershire Varsity series against the University of Worcester. A cohort of broadcasting students from the university participated in the production and capture of the sporting event with support from engineers at Timeline. The sporting event was broadcast live on the University of Gloucester’s YouTube channel. Streamline 2 has also worked on various sporting and light entertainment events including the Women’s FA Cup and Birmingham Royal Ballet’s Curated by Carlos.
Timeline Television believes that ultimately Streamline 2 will allow productions to have the same full facilities and broadcast quality that they would expect from a larger OB in a cost effective manner. “We are able to offer high-end production features, which are typically found in higher budget productions, and make them accessible to everyone with Timeline’s flexible Streamline 2,” said Dan McDonnell. , CEO of the company.
“We have seen a huge increase in the demand for remote productions. However, there may be prohibitive connectivity costs for some productions. So we set out to build a very flexible OB van that could provide support from a full production team on site to a full remote solution and everything in between. Having the equipment onsite also supports robust disaster recovery options.
