The Challenge:

Trying to live up to its name as an innovator in the next media domain, were looking to expand their online presence and extend both the TV Festival and its sister Next Media Conference well beyond the five days of the conference and the 1,500 delegate universe who regularly attend Banff.

Having been involved with some earlier efforts to stream Banff related content in the late 90s, INSINC was perfectly positioned to assist conference organizers in capturing, encoding and archiving select Festival sessions and events, thereby affording delegates the opportunity to watch sessions they may have missed due to scheduling conflicts long after the June 2007 meetings were over.

“Given our prior relationship with INSINC a few years ago, we felt very comfortable that they would be up to any challenges we would face in 2007” said Kerry Stauffer, Achilles Media’s director of program competition and production.

The INSINC Solution:

INSINC provided on site production resources that included capturing multiple concurrent sessions. Over the course of the five day event, INSINC cameras recorded around 40 hours of content. The sessions were then encoded and archived and prepped for on-demand streaming over the Festival’s Website. INSINC also created a custom designed, Banff-branded media player.


The Result:

While on-site technical limitations precluded any “live” event streaming, INSINC was able to ensure that delegates to both the Banff World TV Festival and Next Media were able to access the multiple session archives through a secure, on-line platform, delivered in a timely and expeditious fashion.

The most extensive streaming project yet, Banff organizers were more than pleased with the results and relished the opportunity to rekindle their INSINC relationship. “Their consummate professionalism, no nonsense, non-intrusive approach to client relations and commitment to over-delivering on their performance makes the entire experience an enjoyable one from start to finish”, notes Stauffer. “We look forward to extending our collaborative efforts in the near future.”
