On August 15th, the team at Focal Point produced a Facebook Live broadcast for Adventist Health - Washington Adventist Hospital.
The new hospital wanted to live stream the official ribbon cutting ceremony of the new medical center. Speakers included Adventist HealthCare President and CEO Terry Forde and U.S. Rep. John Sarbanes (D-MD) as they celebrated ahead of the opening of the new hospital on August 25.
What made this broadcast so unique was it was taking place outside in the hospital’s parking lot - making it difficult to get an internet connection to the location and our broadcast equipment.
Our live streaming team used the Teradek Vidiu Go, which bonds cellular signals (along with wifi and ethernet if available) to make 1 strong and reliable internet connection.
The live stream lasted 51 minutes and had a peak of 19 viewers.
