Nik Wallenda’s Tightrope Walk Across Grand Canyon to Stream Live with TriCaster
Posted on Friday, June 21, 2013
 
Live stream airs on skywire.discovery.com June 23, Sunday evening at 8PM EDT 
 
SAN ANTONIO – June 21, 2013 – On June 23, 2013, Nik Wallenda, the tightrope walker known as "the king of the high wire," will attempt to cross the Grand Canyon without a net or safety harness – and Mobile Studios, Inc. will use six TriCaster systems to live stream the event to a worldwide audience on skywire.discovery.com. 
 
"After we were contracted to handle the Latin American feeds for Discovery, we decided to use TriCaster because it provides an elegant solution that met the stringent production requirements for this event," said Richard Rubin, President of Mobile Studios, Inc. "NewTek products deliver tremendous functionality and excellent reliability, so it was an obvious choice for this momentous occasion." 
 
Wallenda's highly anticipated Grand Canyon walk is more than 1,500 feet above the Little Colorado River, a height greater than the Empire State Building. The Mobile Studios production crew will be on the ground with six TriCasters; four TriCaster 455 systems and two TriCaster 855 systems. Five technical directors will be on hand, running the TriCaster systems and providing audiences with a view of the Canyon any they've seen before, along with step-by-step coverage of the entire tightrope walk. 
 
"We are thrilled that Mobile Studios has chosen TriCaster to be a part of this historic event," said Philip Nelson, SVP of Artist and Media Relations at NewTek. "Broadcasters around the world have made TriCaster the preferred choice for live streaming major events, and on June 23, viewers all across the world can have a front row seat to Nik's Grand Canyon walk. This is truly a once-in-a-lifetime live viewing experience with TriCaster again the center of the action." 
 
The walk will take place at 8pm Eastern Standard Time, and will air live exclusively on the Discovery Channel's worldwide network in 217 countries.
