Live streaming first for MTB Marathon World Champs


first_img11 June 2014 Fans of marathon mountain bike racing worldwide will be now able to follow the UCI MTB Marathon World Championships live, thanks to a new live streaming television collaboration. The event takes place at the Cascades MTB Park in Pietermaritzburg, South Africa on 29 June. While recent major events in Pietermaritzburg, such as the 2014 UCI MTB World Cup and the 2013 UCI MTB and Trials World Championships, brought with them major global live streaming TV infrastructure, the 2014 Marathon World title decider did not, which left the door open for local event organisers and the national federation to step in.Tested Cycling South Africa’s General Manager Mike Bradley said that their new collaboration with local live streaming company StreamIt360 had been tested during the South African National MTB Marathon Championships at the Cascades venue on Sunday, 8 June, with the event serving as a dress rehearsal for the World Championships. Without any advanced marketing, over 2 200 people watched the national marathon champs live streaming telecast, many of them from Europe.‘An on-going demand’ “This proves that there is an on-going demand to watch our cycling events live,” Bradley said in a statement on Monday. “This new partnership to bring live streaming to all of our major events will give the events more visibility and more spectators, and thereby add more media value to each event and to the sport as a whole.”A major challenge Bradley admitted that taking on an event that is 74km long for women and 95km in distance for the men is a major challenge. “A Marathon World Champs is pretty much the ultimate test, given the distances and logistical challenges, but I am confident that we will deliver top class production to the global audience at the end of the month,” he said. “As far as we know, no-one has ever provided full live coverage of a marathon world championships before.” Bradley said with word of the live coverage already emerging on social media, interest was being expressed by TV channels worldwide to carry the live coverage.12 cameras and a helicopter The live streaming telecast will be anchored by a panel of presenters, with the use of 12 cameras and a helicopter to provide coverage of the races. The technical demands of covering the event live included dealing with weak cellphone signals and communications facilities in the remote parts of the route. Numerous camera sites will be serviced by fibre-optic cables and satellite uplinks, with the helicopter providing coverage in the most remote areas. The production will include profiles and interviews with the key marathon personalities, and will be screened on televisions at the start/finish venue, in addition to the worldwide live internet streaming platform.

And there’s a lot of information available. You learn a lot.But that doesn’t mean that you are the only one doing their research in front of a sales opportunity. You are looking at your prospective client, and they are looking back. You Google them. They Google you. You check out their LinkedIn profile. They check out your LinkedIn profile.What do you want your prospective clients to find? What do you want your digital surrogate to sell them?Selling the Fact That You Are a Value CreatorYou want your digital surrogate to sell the fact that you are a value creator. You want your dream client to find a long trail demonstrating that you are a person with deep knowledge, good ideas, and the ability to help.Your digital surrogate needs to point to information and ideas that show you have that knowledge and that you know how to find good ideas. The knowledge you have can be your knowledge and the combined knowledge of all the people that work in your company. The ideas can be your ideas, as well as other people’s great ideas. Knowing where to find good ideas is a valuable skill your digital surrogate needs to possess.Your dream clients are looking for proof that you are a good investment of their time.Selling That You Can Help Produce ResultsYou also want your digital surrogate to sell the fact that you can help and that you can be trusted to deliver results.

Digital You can point to your ability to produce those results without being offensive and without being “me” oriented.Your dream clients want to see that you are serious about business.No, You Aren’t a Secret AgentToo many salespeople don’t have a digital surrogate at all. When a prospective client goes to look at them, they find nothing that speaks to the salesperson’s ability to create value or that they produce results. Instead they find incomplete profiles, some pitch from marketing about what the company does, and nothing personal enough to believe that the person behind the profile is in any way human.You may not be interested in social media, but social media is interested in you. You may think that it’s unfair for your prospective clients to judge you because you don’t have a presence on the social web, but they’re going to judge you nonetheless.You may not want a digital surrogate, but that choice is no longer up to you. If you’re going to succeed in sales, you are going to have to adopt the tools of the trade. These tools aren’t a substitute for the tools that came before them; they’re an addition to those tools.

Security Minister announces measures to combat crime and violence


first_img Related Items: Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppKingston, Jamaica, January 3, 2017 – National Security Minister, Hon. Robert Montague, has announced a raft of measures to combat crime and violence and to improve the effectiveness of the Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF) for 2017.  Speaking at the JCF’s annual devotional exercise at the Police Commissioner’s Office, Old Hope Road, in St. Andrew, on January 3, Mr. Montague informed that among the measures will be the splitting of the St. James Police Division “to bring to bear more resources on the problems in St. James”. He further announced the arrival of two naval ships on January 21 from the Netherlands for the Jamaica Defence Force (JDF) Coast Guard, to patrol the seas in order to secure the nation’s borders.   A surveillance plane will also arrive later this year, which will provide additional protection and security for Jamaica’s borders to prevent the trafficking of guns and ammunition. Meanwhile, Mr. Montague noted that 40 rank-and-file members of the JCF will be travelling to Cuba for training with dogs that have been acquired.  The National Security Minister pointed out that 200 more vehicles will be added to the JCF fleet in order to enable every police station to respond appropriately to various occurrences. “We’re going to be expanding the closed-circuit television (CCTV) network. We have four towns with CCTV cameras and we’ll be expanding this into New Kingston,” the Minister said.   “Private persons with CCTV will also be able to send their footage to the police. We’re going to do facial recognition, geofencing and license-plate reading. We’re going to be investing heavily in the intelligence network to lead the operations of the Force,” continued Mr. Montague.  Regarding legislation, he noted that several changes were coming to the Bail, Firearm and Fingerprint Acts.   “The Firearm Act is special to me. The message must be clearly sent that when you take up a gun, you are going to spend a long time behind bars,” he emphasized.  Attention is also to be given to praedial larceny, and motorcyclists’ helmets will be required to bear a registration number. Meanwhile, Deputy Commissioner of Police, Novelette Grant, said the members of the JCF must value themselves and the service they give.   She encouraged them to partner with citizens to rid the country of crime and violence. In his New Year’s Message to the nation, Prime Minister, the Most Hon. Andrew Holness, said the Government is prepared to use the full force of the law to address the crime problem, as it is the greatest threat to the country’s economic independence.   He urged persons to report crimes, noting that “information is the best weapon against criminals”. The annual devotional exercise was held under the theme ‘Our Journey…with Christ’. center_img Photo Credit: JamaicaObserverlast_img read more
