Tech companies Dejero and Dazzl have come together to facilitate uninterrupted coverage for French production company, Sea Events, as it live streams the dramatic departures and arrivals of each stage of the Solitaire du Figaro sailing race.

The event takes place over 1,830 miles across some of Europe’s roughest waters, and the combination of Dejero’s mobile transmitter and Dazzl’s cloud video platform enables Sea Events’ production crew to easily access tools for live production, live clipping, rapid editing and video distribution from the various stages of the race between France, Ireland and Spain, all while maintaining reliable internet connectivity across the route.
 
In order to capture live shots of the skippers at the start and end of each stage, and to be as close to the action as possible, Sea Events positions its crew at multiple vantage points around the harbour; using iPhones on the shore and a drone for a birds eye view. On board its ‘production’ boat, a SONY PMW 400 camera with a stabilized lens connects to a Dejero EnGo mobile transmitter, which is designed to withstand the harsh environment at sea.
