Teradek helps Baltimore Hospital to reach health care workers through live streaming
Martin Jenoff’s Focal Point Production has been providing live streaming services with Teradek’s VidiU Go, Cube encoder and Bolt 1000 to Baltimore’s GBMC HealthCare System.
According to Jenoff: “We helped them hold a town hall with the hospital president and other leadership discussing COVID-19 policies, workplace changes, future plans, and answering questions.” 800-1000 of their workforce tuned in to watch live and ask questions in real-time while hundreds more watched on-demand. “The hospital has its own WebEx so we are mainly tied to that system for the town halls, but we used Teradek’s Cube encoder and VidiU Go as our backup— my insurance policy.” Jenoff adds.
The Teradek VidiU Go is one of the company’s most popular streaming devices. Used by a variety of businesses and organizations ranging from churches to broadcasters to local government, it allows users to send high-quality live streams to their social media platform and destination of choice.
“We’ve been working with the hospital for years, during which time we’ve produced several Facebook Live events. Since COVID-19 started in Maryland in mid-March, we also did 9 public Facebook Lives for them concerning COVID-19 and two more on another topic. For all of them, the Cube and their Internet is the primary and the VidiU GO with cellular bonding is the back up.” he says.
