The N.H.S Mini-International Sheepdog Trials was an extremely interesting experience for the entire Giggabox team. Applying the same principles of sports live streaming, the team managed to pull off a comprehensive multi-camera live stream in the middle of a field.
In order to deliver engaging content for the viewers, the Giggabox team learnt the rules of Sheepdog Trials in order to closely follow the action and capture important parts. Live Streaming in a remote part of Northern England came with it’s own set of challenges that the team dealt with extremely well. It does not matter how prepared you are for a job, you can never plan for a rogue sheep to come hurdling at your equipment and get tangled in your power cables.
With over 8,000 views across the weekend and a flurry of positive comments, the coverage of the Mini-International Sheepdog Trials was a great success.
