CP Communications Support
HOKA Product Launch with
Live Racing Event Production
CP partners with FlightLine Films to capture more than eight hours of race coverage,
leveraging IP and bonded cellular solutions from its Red House Streaming family...

T

o celebrate the release of the
Carbon X 2, its new high-end
running shoe, HOKA invited some of the
world's top long-distance ultrarunners
to try a pair - while trying to break
the world record for a 100K run. CP
Communications, a leader in innovative
solutions and services for live event
productions, provided live streaming
for Project Carbon X 2, held January
23 at Wild Horse Pass Motorpark and
Casino in Chandler, Ariz.
 The shoot exclusively relied on
CP's Red House Streaming (RHS) IP
and bonded cellular solutions for live
4K and 1080p content acquisition.
CP Communications was contracted
by FlightLine Films, who envisioned,
produced and broadcast the event
for HOKA ONE ONE®, and served
as technical facilities provider. CP
technicians brought CP4, a 40-foot
production B unit, to house the
streaming signal processing and
monitoring
equipment,
including
several Mobile Viewpoint Playout 2K4
servers. The two vehicles were parked
close enough to run copper between
them to share signals, while the
skeleton production teams carefully
followed COVID-19 protocols during
the shoot. This included onsite testing
and social distancing before and
throughout the spectator-free event.
The production featured footage
from two motorcycles and one car,
which followed the course to provide
closer coverage of the runners. CP
Communications' custom Smart Car
featured a robotic camera mounted to
a Flowcine Black arm stabilizer, which
provided dynamic camera angles and
smooth 1080p footage throughout

previously seen only at the world's
largest marathons to these smaller
webcasts. "  
While IP and bonded cellular
reduced the costs and complexity of
live content acquisition, Ready notes
that it can be more challenging than
traditional microwave transmission
because the production does not have
control over the infrastructure. " We
are the mercy of the cellular carriers,
and it's imperative to confirm that they
have the capacity to carry the event, "
he explained.
the race. The camera was paired
with a Mobile Viewpoint Agile Airlink
encoder. Both motorcycles, provided
by MediaMotos, were equipped with
Blackmagic cameras and acquired all
content in 4K using Mobile Viewpoint
Ultralink 4K.
CP
Communications
added
microphones to all three vehicles,
providing embedded audio that was
de-embedded in the FlightLine truck
and used during the production.
A Unity Intercom system, which
connects via cellular (or Wi-Fi),
allowed communications between the
motorcycles, as well as the CP and
FlightLine production teams.
Brian Ready, Account Manager and
System Engineer, CP Communications,
emphasized that the company
often relies on a hybrid legacy and
streaming architecture for marathonstyle events to fully optimize coverage
and eliminate network drops, For the
HOKA event, the CP team confirmed
in advance that the more company's
more cost-efficient RHS solutions
would effectively cover the entire
course.

" There was zero RF at this event,
so we provided nearly 100 percent
coverage for both 1080p and 4K
content acquisition over IP and bonded
infrastructure, " said Ready. " We
streamed the 12G-SDI camera output
directly into our Agile UltraLink 4Ks,
which we mounted on the back of the
motorcycles. We maintained a steady
stream of 6-8 Mbps for signal encoding
from the Smart Car, and 15-16 Mbps
from the motorcycles. "
Scott Gillies, Executive Producer and
Strategic Partner, FlightLine Films,
claims that CP's RHS technologies
provided " more refined features
and convenience " not traditionally
seen at running event productions.
" Bonded cellular technology makes
the difference when it comes to
streamlining the production, " he
said. " We don't need an RF tower and
the traditional microwave toolset,
and we have the luxury of a genuine
return channel for monitoring. The
stabilized cameras are a gamechanger
for keeping up with lead runners and
providing a platform for on-course
correspondents. We can now bring
the level of quality and refinement

" We performed a cellular site survey
prior to the event. Upon arrival we ran
the entire course to confirm that the
quality and extent of coverage would
suffice. "
There were no fans at Project Carbon
X 2 due to COVID-19 restrictions, but
more than eight hours of coverage
was streamed live to YouTube and the
HOKA website. The competitors ran
approximately 62.1 miles in two closed
loops around the casino grounds, with
the winning runner falling 11 seconds
short of the world record.
Although the event was produced
on location by FlightLine Films, CP
Communications' Network Operations
Center (NOC) in Florida kept watch on
the data for signal integrity and quality
control. " Producing 4K over bonded
cellular made it a bit more interesting,
and our NOC technicians provided
the QC and occasional bandwidth
adjustments we needed for peace of
mind, " Ready added. " Very few of
our competitors are going into the
world of bonded cellular. We have the
technicians, we have the experience,
and we can provide a turnkey service
to bring these events to life over IP. "
