The French producer Paris WebCube recently covered the “Raid La Saharienne”, a fair-trade trek for women in Ecuador, on Facebook Live using AVIWEST’s PRO180-RA transmitter, StreamHub receiver platform, and an Inmarsat GX antenna.

Between Nov. 5-13 in the Loja region of Ecuador, 50 pairs of women took part in several multisport challenges. Paris WebCube offered the public a glimpse into the everyday life of participants and supporters via the trek’s Facebook page, organizing daily 20-minute videos showing the various stages of the trek, challenges encountered, as well as interviews.

Thanks to the high stability of the PRO180-RA we were able to stream live high-quality videos via cellular connection. The AVIWEST equipment enabled us to deliver interactive content that generated more than 14,000 views and 200 comments during the first one-hour-long live video session. Moreover, the Raid organization was able to offer a new type of content and increase its community.

Superior quality regardless of the location and network conditions

Leveraging the PRO180-RA’s networks aggregation capabilities, Paris WebCube covered every trial during the trek in superior quality, regardless of the location and network conditions. After a HD stream was received by the StreamHub, the AVIWEST receiver platform in the cloud, it was directly delivered to the Raid organization’s dedicated Facebook page.

Large range of resolution and streaming protocols

“The StreamHub supports a large range of resolution and streaming protocols such as RTMP and RTSP dedicated for online streaming, making it perfect for the Raid’s live Facebook coverage,” said Florian Kolmer, sales and business development at AVIWEST. “Because of the flexibility and reliability that AVIWEST solutions provide, they are suitable for any project, including sports, live events, and political meetings.”
