Hi Loyal Viewers.
Good News! Team Brassbanned is all set up ready to stream the VBL State Band Championships, from Ballarat in regional Victoria. Yesterday we spent some time at the venue making sure cameras and microphones were in ideal locations – all for your continued viewing pleasure.
Unfortunately, there is no internet connection in the Theatre (but I think they will look at putting one in, if this stream goes well). That means, I’m using 4G to deliver the live stream to you all… But, luckily there is lots of good reception here!
Consequently, I won’t be streaming in HD as it requires more bandwidth and costs too much in mobile data. Don’t worry though – I’ll be streaming a very good quality standard definition broadcast with excellent audio.
If you think live streaming of the State Championships is a good idea, make sure you email the Royal South Street Society , to let them know. This competition is co-run by the RSSS and the VBL. So, if the RSSS think the stream goes well, they will hopefully look at getting a fixed internet connection into the Theatre for next year!
We will be live in a few hours – and I’ll be updating the broadcast schedule to list the order of bands that are playing.
Hope you enjoy!
PS – we have live text chat back for this contest…use it wisely or else!
