Livestreaming City Winery’s fascinating Wines of Portugal Event

Not every company requires a full, top-to-bottom video production and creative experience. We were fortunate to have the opportunity to help City Winery host their Wines of Portugal livestream event on April 4th, seamlessly streaming their panelist speakers to the Wines of Portugal Facebook page.

The panelists spoke about the importance of Portuguese wine in their field and areas of expertise, and later answered questions from the audience about their fields.

At Skillman Video Group, we usually work with our clients for a full video agency experience: coming up with the blueprint for the video, the main ideas and then the planning. City Winery had already had planned out everything, and this was one of the rare ‘crew for hire’ situations in which we were happy to bridge that gap.

Livestreaming with TV-grade equipment

While you can normally open your laptop or phone and start a livestream with the built-in camera, a high quality livestream with TV grade video and audio requires a much more advanced setup.

We used the audio from City Winery’s stage microphones and our cinematographer Chuck Green’s Sony FS-7 camera for video, with Brian Galford running the livestream itself and making sure everything was running smoothly.

We had all these different components running through a Teradek encoder that is capable of streaming high quality video and audio seamlessly to any platform. Take a look at the livestream here.
