This is how we helped a community organisation turn three college campuses into smart production studios in under an hour.

When the pandemic took hold we got a call from Ivan at Ivan Barra Films. He’d been working with the Wisconsin Association of Cheer/Pom Coaches to put on dance and cheerleading practice coaching events in packed out college campuses and high schools right across the State. But now, right when everyone most needed to engage in with their communities, social distancing regulations had put a stop to the very comps that would lift everyone’s spirits.

Instead of giving up, the team moved the live competitions to a simultaneous live-streamed competition at three college campuses. With audio visual specialists and videographers on hand they used large gymnasiums and outdoor spaces so the competitors could compete at safe distances and spectators could watch safely from home. The show would go on!

But then, less than a week before show day the tech run totally bombed. The fibre internet connections in the gymnasiums and car parks weren’t designed to support high definition streaming. 

Within an hour of speaking to us, Ivan had a solution for robust multi-carrier bonded internet and two days later PopUp WiFi units landed at three different schools. Volunteers plugged them in and within minutes, everyone had the stable, redundant internet they needed. Dedicated network engineers helped them produce the event in High Definition remotely for contactless, live support.

The competition turned out to be a triumph of creativity, courage and technical smarts over the pandemic’s best efforts. The relief and elation the community felt was overwhelming.

“We all thought we were good to go before rehearsals since the colleges had fibre connections that should have been plenty. Your solution saved our bacon at two of the sites because the school internet was dropping out and blocking us (even though we were told it would be otherwise). Without your service and the wonderful help from your network engineers we would have lost two out of the three sites for our streams and disappointed hundreds of kids around Wisconsin. Since internet connectivity is the single most critical part of our online productions, we won’t be going out relying on single connections ever again. Your gear just worked flawlessly. We’re looking forward to working with PopUp WiFi on our next live productions. ”
