Tune in to international DJ YVES V's livestream together with AED group & Panasonic
Panasonic’s glass-to-glass production solution will capture the electro house master in action at BENELUX’s first Virtual Production Studio at AED Studios. As well as streaming the main music event, a second simultaneous behind-the-scenes stream will show the full technical production featuring Panasonic’s studio and PTZ cameras with robotic control systems working with KAIROS, its next generation live production platform, at the heart of the operation.
With his music filling the playlists of some of the biggest DJs on the planet and his live sets illuminating iconic events such as Tomorrowland, Sensation, Amsterdam Dance Event, David Guetta in Concert and Mysteryland, YVES V wanted to give something back to his 1m+ social media followers and this pre-Christmas livestream was too good an opportunity to miss.
As well as streaming the musical magic, in parallel Panasonic and the AED group will be providing a unique view from the production seat via a second stream – making the event invaluable viewing for both music fans and events producers, live events companies, technical directors, operators and rental companies. Those interested in seeing how the event is produced will be able to see the performance intercut with behind the scenes footage of Panasonic PTZ cameras working with Tecnopoint Robotic Systems and Panapod for remote camera movement and for close-ups, as well as the Panasonic AK-UC4000 studio camera. At the heart of the production will be KAIROS, the next generation live production platform that gives AV professionals creative freedom by supporting seamless broadcasting on numerous devices and feeds, in any source, format, scale, screen and mix, without loss of quality. More than a switcher, the platform can also perform routing and screen management functions. With multiple screen layouts built through one simple user interface, KAIROS helps AV professionals improve live and virtual productions.
“With the requirement for production of hybrid events a massive growth trend for 2022, this was a fantastic opportunity to show the ease of use and benefits of using Panasonic KAIROS at the heart of our glass-to-glass production solution for these types of events,” said Andre Meterian Director Professional Video Systems Business Unit, at Panasonic Broadcast & Pro AV. “It’s great to use Panasonic’s broadcasting solutions to connect YVES V with his fans around the world.”
"I'm pretty convinced that with these new IT platforms like Kairos we can be a lot more flexible in the future with remote production", says Thierry Heldenbergh (Managing Director AED Display at AED group). "We can also be totally independent from resolutions of LED screens, most of which have really strange resolutions. For us, the new transitions to IP platforms is really important, because we strongly believe that will be the future, not only for events but also in fixed installations. In this aspect training is very important. We need to train operators as much as possible and so they can feel really confident about the system and feel at ease because that's the centerpiece of a full installation. The good thing about trainings with experienced operators is that they can also give a lot of feedback, because they come from different backgrounds: some are working in TV, some for corporate. They all have their own requirements and it's always good to have feedback from the real operators to ensure the future development of the Kairos platform."
YVES V added: “At a time when it’s still difficult to bring fans together face-to-face, I wanted to lift everyone’s spirits as we approach Christmas and what better way than through music and dance. It’s going to be a great set!”
Streams will be available from 18h00 CET on Wednesday December 15th, 2021.
