Partnership between Madison-based companies, Hinckley Productions and Field59, Inc., create a worldwide viewership opportunity for international women’s roller derby tournament.
Madison, WI – Field59, Inc. today announced a joint partnership with Hinckley Productions to produce live streams for the second annual Roller Derby World Cup taking place in Dallas, Texas, December 4-7, 2014.
Having previously worked together to live stream Mad Rollin’ Dolls derby league bouts in Madison, producer Natalie Hinckley suggested Field59’s live streaming technology to the RDWC organizers, Blood & Thunder Magazine.
Hinckley and the RDWC ultimately chose Field59 because of its ability to provide a custom live streaming solution that included hardware encoders for three separate tracks for the event, personalized testing and production support for Hinckley’s equipment, and a live streaming experience that is viewable anywhere and on any device.
