Génération Numérique entrusts BCE and Freecaster with the live production and streaming of SATIS TV

“With this TV channel, Génération Numérique wants to distance itself from the virtual shows and low-cost webinars that are flooding the online events sector today,” explains Stephan Faudeux, Manager of Génération Numérique and organizer of the SATIS.

“As an event dedicated to audiovisual technology, we want to offer a grid of qualitative programmes both in terms of substance and form with long term content and that will be accessible until the next SATIS. We are therefore very happy to associate BCE and Freecaster with this first SATIS TV,” he continues.

Freecaster, BCE’s subsidiary specializing in online video services for high-quality live and on-demand content, will be on hand alongside BCE to provide coverage for the two SATIS TV sets, which will take place within the AMP VISUAL TV set fleet. Two technical and artistic teams composed of directors, technicians, engineers and cameramen will provide more than thirty live recordings and more than twenty recordings during the 5 days of the show.

SATIS TV will be produced in 4K in both studios: three large 4K sensor cameras will be assigned to the main studio, which will host the expert sets, and two other large 4K sensor cameras will be used in the secondary studio for Talks and Happy Hour. All this content will be broadcast in HD (High Definition) and the main studio shows will initially be streamed live directly to the SATIS TV portal (program available here) through Freecaster’s proprietary live streaming platform.

All content will be recorded and uploaded to the SATIS TV video portal available until the next edition of the show in 2021.

A robust platform…

“The video player used by Freecaster has an adaptive bitrate system to ensure the best experience on any OS or platform. Freecaster relies on an extended CDN (Content Delivery Network) developed with key partners that ensures a permanent availability of live streams, even in the event of peak audiences. The robustness of the Freecaster platform and the use of multiple streaming formats will give users the ability to view SATIS TV videos with live to VoD and expert round tables will be immediately available for replay at the end of each live.
In addition to the features used in SATIS TV, BCE and Freecaster’s platform can also broadcast on social networks, connect with speakers remotely, integrate subtitles, multiple audio channels, or even geo-targeting the content to certain territories.
Finally, the Freecaster player offers an advanced user experience, if the customer wishes, viewers can have access to a selection of viewing angles, separate video streams (live or not), live rewinding and captioning. Explains Philippe Mauduit, President of BCE France.

2020, a particularly busy year for BCE

Today it is the SATIS, the most important French-language event dedicated to audiovisual technologies, that will rely on BCE to produce and broadcast the programme schedule of its first channel whose content will be picked up on the sets of AMP Visual TV on the Plaine Saint Denis, from November 23 to 27.
