A leading production partner for the digital media space, Roker Labs tests streaming technologies, pioneers new streaming formats and produces interactive experiences across multiple content platforms. The company uses Blackmagic Design’s Web Presenter streaming and encoding device, a HyperDeck Studio Mini broadcast deck and ATEM Television Studio HD live production switcher to support its live streaming workflow.
One application of Web Presenter is on Roker Labs Live, a news show that covers developments in the live streaming industry. Each episode features interviews with experts and celebrities, as well as executives from the streaming, media and technology sectors. Web Presenter manages the return feed for guests of the show and allows producers to watch in-studio productions remotely.
Ben Ratner (@BenMakesTV), Roker Labs’ live streaming technical supervisor, explains, “The Web Presenter has become a key part of each stream for Roker Labs Live. It allows me to efficiently manage the feeds back and forth for guests on the show. Our producers love it because it saves them from having to take trips to the studio, and it allows them to provide real-time input from anywhere in the world.”
