La Nuit de La Culture chooses BCE and Takaneo

BCE, in partnership with Takaneo, has been selected for the production and live streaming of La Nuit de La Culture in Esch-sur-Alzette (Luxembourg).

The organizers of La Nuit de la Culture were looking for a way to give their spectators the experience of their event despite the health restrictions due to the COVID-19 crisis.

BCE and its subsidiary Freecaster covered the live streaming of the closing show Exit, presented by Cirque Inextremiste.  To do this, the teams were on site with HD production means, including an outside broadcast van and cameras to capture and share the essence of the emotion of La Nuit de La Culture.

BCE’s Content Delivery Network (CDN) allowed the organizers to broadcast La Nuit de La Culture, even during major audience peaks. An adaptative bitrate system allowed spectators to attend the event regardless of their internet connection speed.

The live streaming was broadcast on La Nuit de La Culture website as well as on social networks. The video of the event could be viewed on any computer, tablet or smartphone using an adaptive streaming system.
