Quicklink TX is used by Mulberry School for an event in International Day of Girl
Skype and Glamour came together for International Day of the Girl to power a live conversation and discussion between Michelle Obama and adolescent girls around the world on the importance of education. For the event, Mulberry School for Girls joined in on the global live conversation using the Quicklink TX Multi.
For the conversation, Mulberry School for Girls required a high quality broadcast camera to interface with Skype. The event was watched by 75 students and the American Ambassador who were seated in the school’s theatre.
It was very important that this output was displayed professionally without any other distractions. XLR audio outputs allowed Mulberry School for Girls to integrate with their theatre sound system. These requirements made the Quicklink TX a perfect solution.
“Mulberry School for Girls was delighted and honoured to be asked to be the United Kingdom venue for the global conversation on Women’s education on International Day of the Girl. For the event we wanted a reliable solution that would manage a high quality camera feed but also allowed the students participating in the event to have the best experience possible when watching the live stream”, has said Christopher Stone, Theatre Technical Manager at Mulberry School for Girls.
Christopher Stone has explained: “We chose the Quicklink TX Multi as the system came with both SDI and HDMI outputs which meant we had a solution that would be useable now with our current projectors (HDMI in) but would allow us at a later date to feed into a vison mixer using SDI”. Chris has added: “Quicklink as a company was excellent! Sharon Howells was superb, very helpful and always happy to help when we had a question”.
Mulberry School for Girls are now planning future events with the Quicklink TX whether it is to allow remote guest speakers to be part of an event or to collaborate with other schools.
