The "cunchao" in Guizhou is so popular, how big amazing will it cooperating with CVW through-wall Thunder PRO-Duo? Here, our Thunder PRO-Duo takes the lead, with two camera positions simultaneously capturing and streaming the live footage, which is very suitable for lightweight live streaming teams. Before we introduce how the Thunder PRO-Duo can live stream such a grand football event, let's first discuss the requirements for live streaming football matches:
The most important aspect of an exciting football match live stream is to present multiple camera angles and perspectives in real-time, ensuring that the audience in front of the screen doesn't miss any thrilling moments of intense competition. This is not an easy task, considering the anticipation of various shots and interactions between players. It's a race against time for our live streaming team, posing a significant challenge.
Since we have established the need for stable multi-camera shooting, the question arises: how should a lightweight live streaming team choose the right equipment to handle different shooting angles, crowded venues, and various scenes?
We will address this question by analyzing the Thunder PRO-Duo product, testing its through-wall performance, and showcasing its application in Guizhou's cunchao, providing a reference answer for existing and aspiring live streaming teams.
01 Fast and Stable Transmission is Essential
When facing a football match scenario with thousands of people and a wide field, the ability to quickly capture footage without dropping signals can be considered a crucial performance indicator when purchasing wireless video transmission equipment.
A standard football field measures 7,140 square meters, with a length of 90-120 meters and a width of 45-90 meters. The Thunder PRO-Duo has a transmission radius of 1,000 meters, providing complete wireless coverage for shooting. With dual-camera live streaming, only one channel is used for transmission, avoiding redundant channel resource occupation. It also minimizes the interference from other wireless devices. Additionally, it offers HDMI, SDI interfaces, RS232/422/485 serial ports, supports different camera and gimbal controls, and can simultaneously output streaming through LAN ports. This eliminates the need for purchasing additional video source conversion equipment (RTSP). Moreover, the receiver can be connected to both the production switcher and a small monitor simultaneously. The serial port supports remote control of the gimbal camera angles, enabling 360-degree shooting. It's like hitting six or seven targets with one shot. Furthermore, it has low power consumption, making it highly suitable for lightweight live streaming teams.
Let's recap the key features of the Thunder PRO-Duo:
Dual-camera wireless video transmission only occupies one channel.
Ultra-long distance range up to 1,000 meters, unaffected by crowds or buildings, ensuring stable live streaming.
Utilizes H.265 encoding/decoding technology for clear and detailed video quality.
Simultaneous streaming output through HDMI, SDI, and LAN ports, eliminating the need for additional video source conversion equipment (RTSP).
RS232/422/485 serial ports for remote control of gimbal camera angles.

02 Reliable Performance at a Reasonable Price
All the previous information was in text form. Now, let's provide some real testing results to significantly boost your confidence. We have divided the information into two parts: the first part consists of field testing by our internal FAE colleagues, and the second part showcases the Thunder PRO-Duo's capabilities through its application in Guizhou's cunchao.
| Example of Guizhou's cunchao
The live streaming team set up two camera positions in the football field based on their shooting requirements, covering the entire field as much as possible.
Each camera was connected to a Thunder video transmitter (supports connecting up to four transmitters) to transmit the captured video signals to the receiver. One camera was set as a fixed position to ensure an overall shooting effect.
The receiver was placed near the production switcher, and the two video signals received were connected to the production switcher through SDI cables. The on-site director adjusted the camera positions and angles based on the displayed images on the production switcher, ensuring real-time capture of exciting moments on the field.
The live streaming personnel performed simple video editing and streaming from the production switcher, achieving real-time online streaming.
With the rising popularity of cunchao in Guizhou, we can expect more such significant sporting events in the future. This poses a challenge for live streaming teams, involving the allocation of resources on a large scale, as well as the selection of live streaming equipment. Finding a wireless video transmission system that truly meets the needs of your live streaming team is like adding the final touch to enhance work efficiency and save resources. Because of the excellent through-wall performance, CVW's Thunder wireless video transmission system has won the recognition and approval of users in various industries, including streaming, government enterprises, education, and entertainment, with its stable and reliable performance. We look forward to collaborating with more live streaming teams to create exciting sparks together.
