It is not only our creative arts departments that have benefited from the team’s expertise. They have also live streamed many of the school’s sporting events such as the Breakers Cup Basketball tournament, the Soccer 7s Football tournament as well as last weekend’s Flying Fish swim meet. These sporting highlights are attended by teams from all over South East Asia (and further afield), therefore the online streams provide a channel for the coaches and parents to watch their teams compete despite being thousands of miles from their home school. They have also proved extremely popular; the Soccer 7s stream has been accessed over 7000 times already this year!
Live streaming is delivered with industry-level kit which includes Open Broadcaster Software and 4k high definition video cameras. The students will often use multiple camera angles in a live environment and will cue preprepared audio and video to use when appropriate. These skills are not only key to those who may want to work in the media industry, but also give the students the ability to make professional looking videos to evidence their learning across the whole curriculum.
