The BBC are experimenting at capturing the most from the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, which has hundreds of shows at varying time over the entire fringe festival. The problem is, the BBC, who are always looking to cut costs, certainly at festivals such as this, which would be impossible to cover even a good amount of the performances through conventional means, have developed something unique.
Placing HiRes tiny cameras, in numerous locations around the fringe, which will then transmit this data, live to the editors at the BBC, who will then edit, trim and publish the content live and also available on the iPlayer.
This unique way of capturing the most performances, but keeping down costs, but maintaining as high production standards as the BBC is well known for is no mean feat. The results have been received pretty well so far.
