Traveling the World and using LiveU Solo to Produce Digital Events

Toronto-based freelance DP and Camera Operator Kyle Chappell of Chappell Digital has traveled the world producing live content. His work has taken him to beaches in Cuba, New Zealand, New York City, and five Provinces in Canada. From unscripted live “get it as it happens” events, to studio setups, documentaries, and narratives, he’s done it all and relied on high-quality live video technology to get the job done.

Recent Success

Kyle and his team recently streamed 22 hours of live content with 0 drop frames using LiveU’s plug-and-play video encoder – LiveU Solo. Jerk Festival 2020, sponsored by TD Bank, is typically a large cultural festival celebrating the exotic flavor, vibes, and vibrancy of the people of the Caribbean. The food and music festival is attended by 50K-80K. This year with the COVID pandemic, the event went digital.

The three-camera production featured hosts in different locations, live interviews, pre-recorded performances from Jamaica, Barbados, and Toronto, and commercial spots.  The event was streamed to Vimeo and Facebook via LiveU Solo to Restream for syndication.



Results with LiveU Solo

Chappell notes that over the past seven years, half of his work was streamed content. During the pandemic, his live stream productions accounted for 99% of his business. And he sees it growing even more now that sports is making a comeback. He also sees more corporate uses and music and cultural festivals that need to take place to take advantage of cultural grants provided by the government in Canada.

“I never had a product that I paid $2K for that has helped me make 10X that for a production,” noted Chappell. “I couldn’t have produced the event without the LiveU Solo. It paid for itself and immediately opened the doors to tens of thousands for work I didn’t know people wanted.”

“LiveU Solo has proven critical during quarantine as we needed to go live at a moment’s notice, but still put out the same high-quality content our audience would expect from a highly produced studio shoot."
