Live Streaming School Events

One project we have been working on in the Technology department this year is to start getting more of our events live streamed. This is so parents unable to make the journey to school can still watch live. For the past two years we have streamed our winter music concert using Ustream, and through doing this have learned a lot about audio quality, camera placement and bandwidth requirements.

However, we knew we wanted more options that Ustream could offer, so we have moved over to The Cube (formally called High School Cube). This is a newer service that includes a lot more social features especially for sporting events, for which you can tag other teams, follow other school’s cubes, include a live scoreboard, etc.

Recently we have been using this site to live stream our home hockey games, complete with play-by-play and color commentary, follow-the-puck camera work and pre-game coaching staff interviews. Below you can see the live stream setup above the rink and some of the ways we have been getting to word out to the Hebron community. We were even featured on The Cube’s Twitter feed.
