It’s Live …..


EON Broadcasting has launched a Sunshine Coast first with a multi camera Facebook Live solution. Take a look.

The smarts behind it was developed by Senior Broadcast Engineer and ACRA winner, Dale Sharp, which they say has pushed the limit of Facebook Live technology to a whole new level for the networks two Sunshine Coast stations 919 SEA FM and 92.7 MIX FM.

This new solution allows you to watch live station events on Facebook with the look and feel of a television station but with all the advantages of the personal one on one approach of radio. This solution also allows graphics, special effects and remote crosses from the studio to remote locations.

EON Broadcasting’s Group Content Director, Rod Brice said: “Our Sunshine Coast stations have been trialling this system internally for some months with install and development by Dale Sharp and the Digital team Holly Spillane and Kamila Lizis developing the branding in the system to an exciting level. The involvement from listeners is impressive and shows that this new technology is welcomed and a great step forward in keeping our listeners engaged, with the New Year’s Eve “Clubcast” live from Mooloolaba beach reaching 325,000 during the event.”

Hmmm ... so EON has "discovered" vMix software?
Germ(23:29 18 Jan 2017)
Germ of a good idea here, focus for EON will be to be selective about what is streamed. As a proof of concept the NYE broadcast is fine, but who is thumbing through a news feed to watch other people enjoy music? Next point will be to get talent fully across the potential of this platform and to graduate from the novelty of 'this is facebook! How exciting! I don't understand this'.

And again, the radio haters are out in force.

Negativity is a major issue in this industry, talk about wanting to tear down your own.

It really is pathetic

@anonymous the first is from the application not the technology.. Show me a facebook broadcast thats on the radio and facebook from a beach.

Most of this technology is free available, however I have more to come.

You guys keep watching and guessing.
