Axians creates a mobile solution for livestreams en recordings.

The ZorgLab at VIVES responds to the increasing importance of interprofessional collaborations in supporting (care) technology in the home and living environment. It wants to distinguish itself from other knowledge centers through an interprofessional vision, a client-oriented approach and strong collaboration with the professional field. It is a place where students from various health care programs can get the opportunity to answer concrete questions from the working field.

The challenge of this project was to create a mobile solution that could be used at different locations within the building. With this solution provided by Axians AV, VIVES can livestream and record trainings and treatments simultaneously within the ZorgLab. The solution was built around a centralized streaming device – a tricaster by Newtec – which offers the possibility to add information to these recordings with many expansion options for the future.

How does it work?

The solution consist of a custom-made mobile flightcase for a tricaster mini with two monitors, a tricaster controller, mouse and keyboard. The tricaster allows you to monitor both the camera image and the controls through the NDI – networked video technology. All this is made possible through a standard network architecture. By using NDI only one network connection is required instead of several SDI connectors in an analog setup. The same goes for the audio part. By using DANTE – networked audio technology – the audio signal is brought into the tricaster through the same network connection. The result is a mobile solution with a power plug and two network connections which can be connected anywhere in the building.
