In the spring of 2015, NBDC supported research to develop a remote webcasting setup and workflow. Working with Iqaluit-based Asukuluk and Nunageek Solutions and with the in-kind support of Ice Wireless, the research lead to the successful live streaming of the 2015 Toonik Tyme drag races, on location on the sea ice. Missed it? No problem, check out the highlights on Youtube.
In conjunction with the successful pilot project to stream the 2014 Alianait festival, these two projects demonstrate innovative use of connectivity and technology and open the door for live coverage of a wide variety of events in the future.
