Chilli Eating Competition
inswindon BID Company approached us to live stream an external event they were hosting in Wharf Green, Swindon. The Chilli Fiesta is very popular and combines stands selling Chilli related produce with live music and the famous 'Clash of Titans' Chilli Eating Competition. In previous years inSwindon had attempted to live stream the competition from a mobile phone but due to saturated 4G connectivity at the very popular event this has always failed.
We supplied three cameras and two Camera Operators plus a Vision Mixer/Director and our Outside Broadcast Van. We used a dedicated online connection via KA sat to overcome and cellular issues. We broadcast to their Facebook page all the music acts as well as the competition which can be seen above.
The event was a great success and the live broadcast had many viewers with many more post event. It also allowed inSwindon to showcase the additional level of footfall that the event generated into the Town Centre.
