Both Lollapalooza and Austin City Limits were tremendously successful, partly because of our partnership with Dell. Our creative team had the tools to tell a compelling story and to do it in a hurry.

ChallengeFor event organizer C3 Presents, live streaming YouTube broadcasts have become a crucial component of both the Austin City Limits and Lollapalooza music festivals. The project requires nearly real-time editing of performance recaps, interviews and more. In previous years, the firm used Apple® hardware and software, but this year it needed to simultaneously produce more content and accelerate the production process.
SolutionFor both festivals, Arts+Labor deployed five Dell Precision™ workstations with Intel® Xeon® and Intel® Core™ processors running Adobe® Premiere® Pro video editing software, Dell™ UltraSharp™ monitors and a Dell PowerVault™ network attached storage device.
Benefits• Twofold more video streamed without adding video editing staff
• Estimated 30 hours saved over 3 days on incorporating footage from different types of cameras without transcoding
• Elimination of P2 conversions prior to video editing
