Jazz Festival Relies On TriCaster, 3Play

Organizers of the 11th Jakarta International Java Jazz Festival also used the NewTek TalkShow VS-100 for broadcast-quality live Skype interviews.

More than 130,000 people turn out to listen to some of the biggest names in music at the 11th Jakarta International Java Jazz Festival.

Helping to stream the festival online was technology from NewTek. Last year, three TriCaster 8000 production systems along with two TriCaster 460s and one TriCaster 410 helped the Java Jazz Festival stream to more than 100,000 people a day on various YouTube channels.

For this year’s festival, organizers added three additional TriCaster 8000s, which enabled the festival to run three pairs of TriCaster 8000s in redundant mode, covering the four stages.

For the first time, Java Jazz made use of the 3Play system, which is typically used for instant replay in sports but proved to be a critical asset for the festival. The 3Play gave the festival the ability to time-shift any of the performances creating a continuous, uninterrupted broadcast. If a performance is running long, operators can broadcast it until it ends and cue up the next show on 3Play and start it when the other show is finished. 

Said Djundi Karjadi, Technical Director of Java Jazz Festival, ”We solved the scheduling issues with 3Play and the recording challenge using double TriCasters, a solution that proved both economical and effective,” Karjadi says. “I believe I wouldn’t get the same great result even if I used equipment that costs three to four times more.”
