Solskogen 2017 is over! What a blast that was; I especially enjoyed that so many old-timers came back to visit, it really made the party for me.

This was the first year we were using Nageru for not only the stream but also for the bigscreen mix, and I was very relieved to see the lack of problems; I've had nightmares about crashes with 150+ people watching (plus 200-ish more on stream), but there were no crashes and hardly a dropped frame. The transition to a real mixing solution as well as from HDMI to SDI everywhere gave us a lot of new opportunities, which allowed a number of creative setups, some of them cobbled together on-the-spot:

  • Nageru with two cameras, of which one was through an HDMI-to-SDI converter battery-powered from a 20000 mAh powerbank (and sent through three extended SDI cables in series): Live music compo (with some, er, interesting entries).
  • 1080p60 bigscreen Nageru with two computer inputs (one of them through a scaler) and CasparCG graphics run from an SQL database, sent on to a 720p60 mixer Nageru (SDI pass-through from the bigscreen) with two cameras mixed in: Live graphics compo
  • Bigscreen Nageru switching from 1080p50 to 1080p60 live (and stream between 720p50 and 720p60 correspondingly), running C64 inputs from the Framemeister scaler: combined intro compo
  • And finally, it's Nageru all the way down: A camera run through a long extended SDI cable to a laptop running Nageru, streamed over TCP to a computer running VLC, input over SDI to bigscreen Nageru and sent on to streamer Nageru: Outdoor DJ set/street basket compo (granted, that one didn't run entirely smoothly, and you can occasionally see Windows device popups :-) )

It's been a lot of fun, but also a lot of work. And work will continue for an even better show next year… after some sleep. :-)
