The latest news from Silverstream TV.
Back in Jersey for Big Gig
We know summer is well and truly underway when we find ourselves back in Howard Davis Park for Jersey’s annual Sure Big Gig music festival.
With our team of four camera operators plus vision mixer, we filmed all the action on stage and fed it live to the large screens (supplied by iMAG) either side of the stage.
Our live SocialWall also enabled people to post their photos and selfies to the big screens.
A two day event featuring stars such as Olly Murs, Louise Johnson, Calum Scott and Kim Wilde, Sure Big Gig is one of the biggest annual music events in the Channel Islands, with all proceeds being distributed to local children’s charities.

Video at the Speed of Twitter
The annual Mortgage Strategy Awards are recognised as the benchmark of excellence in the mortgage industry, attracting over 900 professionals for a night of celebration and networking.
Silverstream captured all the greatest moments of the event and, with our on-site team of live editors, created 26 quick turnaround video clips which were immediately shared on Twitter throughout the evening.
Videos of winners collecting their awards were available before they even returned to their seats, and by the end of the night we had created an overall highlights video which was played on screens and online.
By posting videos almost instantly on Twitter, the awards received increased engagement and interaction from across the industry and beyond. We also provided long lasting content to prolong event exposure and promote next year’s awards.
Video at the Speed of Twitter is ideal for award ceremonies, festivals, or any event with stand-out moments you want to share immediately with your audience. If you’re interested in using Video at the Speed of Twitter at your event, please contact us today at firstname.lastname@example.org
Live to Screens at 100% Optical
In February 2017 we delivered live streaming to screens as well as quick turnaround video production at 100% Optical, the largest optical event in the UK, which attracts over 8,000 international visitors.
With enthusiastic presenters Michael and Annaliese we captured the exciting content and buzzing atmosphere across the two day show. From live fashion shows and interactive workshops to design competitions and exhibitor demonstrations, we covered it all and visitors were able to see all that the event had to offer.
We also provided our own screen, located above the bar in the central area where the majority of visitors could watch all the action as they explored the show.
We delivered daily highlights as well as overall highlights for longer term promotion.
Our 6th Year of Toy Fair TV
We found ourselves back in Olympia London once again to provide Event TV for Toy Fair 2017, the UK’s only toy, game and hobby trade show, where over 270 companies showcased their latest products and innovations.
It was our 6th year of delivering creative video solutions for Toy Fair and our 5th year of live Event TV. Our presenters Gavin and Anna once again did a stellar job heading up Toy Fair TV across the three days of the show. The live channel was streamed to screens around the venue as well as online on the Toy Fair website.
Here's one of the highlights videos we produced alongside the live feed.
2016 - What a Year!
We probably say this every year, but we really can't believe that Christmas is already upon us! 2016 has passed us by in a flash, thanks to all the fabulous events and projects we have worked on throughout the year. We've already got some pretty cool jobs lined up for next year, and we can't wait to see what else 2017 has in store!
To mark the end of what's been a pretty eventful year all round, we've combed back through our archives and put together a collection of our favourite moments
Here's a more specific shortlist of our proudest 2016 moments
- At the Exhibition News Awards in May, we were Highly Commended for Technology, and nominated in two categories. We were also proud to provide filming and video production of the awards
- In June we travelled to Shanghai, to deliver Event TV at CPhI China
- At the Speciality and Fine Food Fair in September, we launched our new Event TV Lite Channel, a scaled back version of full Event TV, tailored for smaller events
- Also in September, we provided the entire stage backdrop to the Guild of Fine Food Great Taste Awards, consisting of a super-wide LED impact screen showing a live feed of the event, animations, nomination videos, and our TwitterWall. We also delivered winner interviews and our Video at the Speed of Twitter
- We filmed all the action at the first ever Unsigned Music Awards in October, which was then broadcast on TV

On that note, we would like to wish all of our friends from all over the world, Happy Holidays and a very prosperous 2017 – here’s to another exciting year in the world of events and video production.
We're pretty sure its going to be awesome, as the future for video marketing looks very bright indeed!
