Live Webstream: UC Berkeley, College of Engineering Graduations

It was an exciting day producing the live video coverage of UC Berkeley COE’s 2 graduation ceremonies at the Greek Theater in Berkeley, CA (graduate/doctoral and undergrad).  I’ve been the stills photographer for the events in years past, focusing on excited faces, fun interactions, and the many people involved.

I wanted to bring the same intimate and exciting feel to the live Webstream this year.  To be sure I and my other camera ops could move freely, we used a number of low-latency wireless HD transmitters, feeding a live editor off stage.

It’s rewarding to know we helped friends and family members of graduates participate in the celebration, even if they weren’t able to be at the Greek that day.  Our original live feed had more than 7000 views.


I was also providing still imagery for the school’s Instagram feed (via a Web-connected DSLR).  Busy Day!

Congrats Berkeley grads! #begrad15
