Because there are so many variables involved when selected which services best fit your event’s needs, we have created some basic, but customizable packages for you to choose from.  

Each package is a per day price.  So if your event runs two days, the prices quoted in the package is for each individual day and so on.  The premium packages are billed for each event in total, regardless of the days in which they run.

Please be sure to read the FAQ for specific details that may cost extra depending upon the venue!

In 2016, we reached out to Joe for our second year of running the Black & Red Open, with the goal of providing a stable live stream of our Olympic-style Weightlifting meet. The initial concept he brought was simple: low-cost cameras with a robust backend to lower the barrier to entry for local meets to showcase lifters and give them exposure to the greater weightlifting community. What Joe and LiftCastTV offered actually far exceeded our expectations. The stream was reliable for the duration of the meet, but we also were able to flexibly adjust camera angles and contextually enrich the viewer experience with little fanfare and minimal work on our part and Joe’s. Joe’s dedication to the craft resonates with our own tenets of high standards and continuing to raise the bar and he has become part of the Black & Red family. He has since streamed the 2017 Black & Red Open along with numerous other events locally and Nationally for the sport of Olympic-style Weightlifting and keeps raising the bar with added features and new ideas to bring richer viewing experiences at an affordable cost. LiftCast is more than just a streaming service; it is passion for raising the bar on applying affordable technology to lower the barrier to entry for people who want to get more exposure to their events and help bring greater exposure to those participating in their events. As a partner of LiftCastTV since its birth, I can say without hesitation that this is a game-changer for local and regional strength sports events, as Joe and his team’s expertise in managing the viewer’s experience is peerless.

A La Carte Addons

A static camera is a mounted camera that is not portable but may have PTZ functionality (Pan, Tilt, Zoom).  Our cameras are generally light and portable and can be temporarily mounted on framing installations such as Rogue rigs, or LiftCast provided small tripods for tables, boxes for floor mount or large tripods for floor mount.

Each camera requires the ability to run at least a power cable in most cases, however for the advanced PTZ cameras, we require the ability to run both power and an Ethernet cable to the camera.  All cabling and installation is provided by and installed by LiftCast.  See the FAQ for more details on how we setup your venue for live broadcasting.

A roving or operated camera is a man-operated camera operated by a LiftCast staff member. This operator will unobtrusively roam the performance floor or venue on an as needed basis as per the production director on site at the venue. We respect and fully understand the inner workings of all of the sports we provide coverage for.  Operated cameras are not typically enabled for the entire duration of your broadcast but are often deployed and added to your program stream as the pace and rhythm of the event dictates.

Our operators are conscientious of moments of silence and no movement such as in Olympic Weightlifting. Additionally, our operators are capable and skilled in staying clear of athletes during functional fitness competitions as well as being unobtrusive to live spectators at the venue.  Athlete safety and performance comes before our production.

The Social Media Engagement package is designed to assist you, the event manager or organizer in getting the word out about your upcoming broadcast. This includes creating custom artwork feature your event on our own social media outlets as well as providing you with custom artwork for your own social media outlets. Potentially, this will require collaboration between our artists and yours.  We will work with your organization to get the word out as fast and as widely as possible to make your live broadcast a resounding success.

If your venue does not have the required infrastructure onsite to reliably handle the broadcast, we provide this option as a last resort.

Additionally, we keep this option on hand for all broadcasts as a backup in case your local internet connection experiences problems or difficulties with maintaining a stable data stream to our servers.

This options places two sport-knowledgeable commentators on your live broadcast to give the play by play and provide live feedback to viewers as well.

We’ll take your live broadcast archive and edit the footage adding in titling, annotations, transitions, etc.  This is a great way to feature your event giving context to your athletes and their accomplishments.

A perfect way to feature your star athletes or winning moments of your event. The highlight reel will feature professionally edited footage of a specific athlete’s performance during your event to include any medal/podium finishes.

For broadcasts requiring more than a single program feed.  For example if a weightlifting meet has more than 1 active platform, it would be difficult to live edit both platforms into a contiguous program feed, thus we would provide continues program feeds using channel selector in the viewer itself so the user can decide which platform they’d like to view.

Adding live production of a program feed gives your broadcast a very polished and proper “Televised” look in that our producers will cut to the camera providing the best angle on the action.

This service includes the ability to have slow-motion instant replays from various angles.
