Commencement Live Streaming for Groton’s Prize Day

Charles River Media Group provided multi-camera live streaming services for the Groton School’s Prize Day commencement. The ceremony took place in a large tent on school grounds in front of their historic chapel where friends, family, and graduates gathered for the momentous occasion. The program included faculty speeches, student awards and diplomas, and remarks from guest speaker and Pulitzer Prize-winning historian Jon Meacham.

The program was live streamed to a global audience watching on both YouTube Live and Zoom Webinar. We showcased the event from all angles with a 5 camera broadcast:

  • One camera that captured the procession from the chapel to the tent
  • Two cameras that captured the stage (wide and tight) from over 100 feet away
  • One camera on each side of the stage that captured the audience and students walking across the stage 

The camera shots were called by our director and switched live by our technical director. Our stream engineer managed encoding and broadcasting the feed to the internet platforms. In addition, microphones were set up to capture the sounds of the crowd in order to create an immersive broadcast audio mix. The online audience was able to view the event in full HD and hear the applause, laughter, and joyful shouts of the on-site attendees.

Congratulations to the graduates of 2023, we look forward to future Prize Day events at the Groton School.
