Vikingacupen – Ekerö IK Hockey


On Sunday April 6 2008, Qrodo broadcasted the youth ice hockey tournament Vikingacupen over the Swedish 3G mobile network. The video feeds from the event were available from both and the Sportnik community pages of Ekerö IK Hockey. The event had around 1000 participants from all around Sweden and and demonstrated both standard DV camera integration and Interactive Broadcasting over low and oscillating broadband. The hardware setup for event was a low-end DV camera, a Windows XP laptop and a Turbo 3G USB modem. The 3G uplink was stable, but varied between 50 and 300 kbit/s and stressed the adaptiveness of the Qrodo streaming to its max.
