We Made A Mistake

Since the lockdowns began around March 2020, our businesses have changed. Live events has been mostly non-existent. In order for businesses in our industry to survive, we’ve had to adapt, try new things and learn new skills. Not only that, but budgets are different (smaller). I’m very pleased with the way that we’ve adapted in […]

Bringing in multiple presenters from home…

With the current lockdown situation, everyone is working from home. This has presented the events world with a new challenge (and we love challenges); How can we broadcast an interactive conversation online in a professional way with high production values.

Great webcasts need great cameras…

Online video is becoming more and more popular every day with users now watching more than 1 billion hours of video on YouTube every day.  Many of our engineers and camera people will often hark back to the days of  the BBC engineer, quality, quality, quality.  BBC used to train their engineers over a period […]

5 tips – Social Media for your Live Event

Live events have an inherent value that the online world can’t replicate.  Your guests want to interact with other, have face to face conversations, that’s how relationships are built.  Even for us, as a tech supplier for events, even we believe this to be true.  And putting your event online will never decrease ‘bums on […]

Webcasting from the Museum of London

The Museum of London asked for our help to live stream educational content to over 600 students in 25 schools.  We used YouTube as a platform, given that this was a public event and we needed it to be openly accessible to as many people as possible. We provided cameras, audio, encoders and crew and the […]
