Two weeks ago our crew packed up a uHaul, and drove to Orlando, Florida for the BBYO International Convention 2018. Focal Point Productions was hired to live stream 5 days of festivities from the Hyatt Regency Orlando for the Washington DC based Jewish teen youth group. Eight shows from two different locations were broadcasted for a combined 8.5 hours on Facebook Live.
Our equipment consisted of a NewTek TriCaster TC1 (with a control surface), four cameras, a Teradek Bolt, Teradek Cube, NewTek Connect Spark, four laptop computers, and lots more.
At the end of the five day convention, the combined 8 Facebook Live shows had more then 160,000 minutes watched, 6,400 post engagements, 1,600 comments, and a reach of almost 70,000. And those numbers will continue to grow as more people watch, share, and comment the videos. The videos were also uploaded to YouTube and have 4,000+ combined views.
