Based in Grain Valley, Mo., RacinDirt manages racing events featuring dirt-modified stock cars. RacinDirt broadcasts races as they happen and offers a paid subscription option for fans to watch races live with high-quality video.
RacinDirt has been providing live video streaming services to racing fans with legacy connectivity methods. Even in scenarios where there was a wired internet option, the reliance on a single internet line had proven to be too risky and the cost per day could easily become a financial roadblock. To offer the high-quality live video streaming fans expect, RacinDirt required a solution able to combine several internet resources.
RacinDirt chose Mushroom Networks Streamer, which bonds several cellular wireless data modems from disparate service providers together to create a bonded IP tunnel optimized for live video streaming applications.
“Mushroom Networks Streamer gives us the portable, optimized and reliable bandwidth we need so we can give fans who can’t make it to the event the live, high-quality racing video they want as the race is happening. We are thrilled with Streamer,” says Trenton Berry, CEO and co-owner of RacinDirt.
Not only does Streamer facilitate a reliable, robust IP tunnel, it allows RacinDirt to hook up and control three cameras and a multicamera live video switcher—in effect, creating a portable production and content distribution system that can work from any racetrack. Streamer’s built-in WAN Ethernet port and built-in Wi-Fi enables RacinDirt to stream live video from tradeshows as well.
