As 19-year-old adventurer Parker Liautaud made his way from the Antarctic coast to the South Pole in an attempt to set a world speed record, Willis Resilience Expedition TV used a NewTek TriCaster 860 multicamera production system to broadcast a daily 60-minute live show tracking Liautaud’s progress.

A NewTek TriCaster 860 multicamera production system operated by Shift 4 is at the heart of a purpose-built studio and control room streaming live footage from the Antarctic.

The broadcast featured live video and audio satellite feeds from the custom-built expedition support vehicle in Antarctica that followed Liautaud, together with video from three Sony PDW-F800 HD cameras, previously edited material, on-screen graphics and Skype calls from global contributors. Each live show was mixed in the TriCaster and streamed to Willis’ YouTube channel, as well as uploaded each day to www.willisresilience.com to be viewed on demand.
