Java Jazz Festival livestreams performances with AJA
The Jakarta International Java Jazz Festival has livestreamed its latest show with the help of AJA products. Jakarta-based system integrator PT. Interindo Multimedia handled broadcast operations and a range of AJA gear was used for streaming, video and audio I/O, fibre transmission, frame synchronisation and conversion.
During the live concerts throughout the festival, AJA’s FS2 dual-channel converter and frame synchroniser was used for production at each of the main event stages for HD colour correction and audio embedding.
From the event stages, signals are transmitted to the master control room via AJA’s FiDO-TR single channel 3G-SDI fibre transceivers, which facilitated long cable runs up to 10km with electrical isolation for eliminating ground loop problems.
For live festival broadcasts, HD video signals are also routed to the master control room via an AJA Kumo 3232 router. In the master control room, AJA’s Kona LHi multi-format video and audio I/O card provides connectivity for bridging incoming signals to a range of editing and effects software for live cosmetic cleanup and graphics additions, as well as distribution via social media platforms.
For livestreaming of line cuts to YouTube, signals are recorded and distributed live to the CDNs by AJA’s standalone Helo H.264 streaming, recording and encoding device.
Djundi Karjadi, general manager of PT. Interindo Multimedia, commented: “Helo is the most stable encoding solution we’ve used to date, saving our team time and money – and taking the headache out of our livestreaming workflow. Since integrating Helo, we no longer have to worry about downtime or equipment performance and can rest assured in the quality of our livestream broadcasts.”
