Rexcel Nippon Simple LaaS and Videon EdgeCaster Livestream Taipei Opera to Over 50,000 Viewers Worldwide


Rexcel’s Simple LaaS streamlined setup that lowers the barrier for event organizers to implement professional-grade livestreams. Easy, Economical, and Efficient.

Tokyo, Japan - May 11, 2020 -Rexcel Nippon announces the formal launch of Rexcel Simple LaaS (Livestream-as-a-Service) which is based on Videon’s award-winning EdgeCaster. Simple LaaS’s introductory event resulted in an impact that will long be remembered. The Taipei Opera’s historic performance, a Taiwan premiere of “El amor brujo” (ballet) and “La vida breve” (opera) by Spanish composer Manuel de Falla was to be held at Taiwan’s national opera house (the Taichung National Theater)  on March 21, 2020. The event was cancelled due to Covid-19, but not before the performers were allowed to use the opera house to do a dress rehearsal the night before. Ren Egawa, CEO of Rexcel, realized Simple LaaS could enable a world-wide audience first time viewing of an event featuring multi-streaming of four live feeds from four different cameras. The problem was Rexcel members were not allowed in the theatre to set up the system due to Covid-19 restrictions.
