We turn the National Trust AGM into a live online event

Each year the National Trust holds their annual general meeting, open to all members. With over 5 million subscribers, they need to ensure those who are unable to attend in person have a way of participating at home.

Silverstream TV delivered a live multi-camera production at the 2017 AGM which took place at Swindon's STEAM Museum. We broadcasted the entire all-day event, which included an introduction, formal address, and mutiple different segments over 6 hours, live to the Trust's website.

For those watching at home, we delivered a two-way chat platform, embedded with the stream. This enabled members at home to post live questions to the Trust, who could then read and answer the questions in real time, directly underneath the comment. Post-event, the different segments from the day are available for on-demand viewing.

At the venue, we provided 85 inch LCD displays either side of the stage with a live feed from our cameras. Additionally we provided an overflow room with a screen, for members of the press to be able to follow the event.


Cooking up a tasty live channel at The Restaurant Show

We took this year's Restaurant Show to the next level when we created a live TV channel across the entire show, bringing all of our key services together for one comprehensive production.

With presenters Anna Walker, Nigel Barden and David McClelland, we conducted live interviews, stand visits and demonstrations, exploring all the tastiest bits of the UK's definitive event for the restaurant and foodservice industry.

Suspended from the roof of London's Olympia we placed our big LED screen, which played the channel for everyone in the venue to see, wherever they were. During breaks in the live channel, it displayed our live updating SocialWall and real-time digital signage.

On Day 2 the channel was dominated by the prestigious National Chef of the Year competition, which took place on the show floor. We followed the live action in true Bake Off style, live streaming to online, the LED screen and a smaller screen in the middle of the kitchen area.

Our on-site editing team also served up daily highlights and social clips for online channels and the screens, combining all the best bits of for those who missed the live stream.

A real recipe for success!


We put the LIVE into New Scientist Live

It's our second year of providing video and live streaming solutions at the 2017 New Scientist Live and this time its bigger and better!

We've delivered a unique Event TV solution to the exciting festival of ideas, organised by the publishers of New Scientist magazine and held at London's Excel. 

Our presenters Dr Emily Grossman and Nicki Shields have been exploring the show, conducting interviews with stands and looking at the latest innovations and activities. The channel has been played out online as well as to a network of 13 screens around the venue.

Highlights have included filming British astronaut Tim Peake, as well as streaming a live link with Paolo Nespoli at the International Space Station to four different online channels, including Facebook Live

Live at Victorious Festival

Our summer ended with a bang when we had the pleasure of providing live camera feeds at Victorious Festival in Southsea, Portsmouth. 

The 3 day festival featured music stars Olly Murs, Rita Ora, Stereophonics, Elbow, Franz Ferdinand and many more. Our partners iMag Displays provided the large screens either side of the stages, whilst Silverstream provided a team of cameras across two stages, feeding footage directly to the screens. We also provided live vision mixing via our mobile broadcast studio truck.

It was a fantastic (and very long) weekend and a great way to end the summer.


Our widest screen yet at Great Taste Awards

Following the 2016 Great Taste Golden Fork awards, where we used our super-wide LED screen for the first time, we wanted to make it even bigger and better for 2017. 

We provided an all new LED set design for the show, with video mapping to ensure the seperate LED sections could act as one continuous canvas. Graphics and video, developed by our in house team, was played seamlessly across the whole backdrop, creating a stunning visual display to make for an unforgettable event. 

The super-wide screen also displayed the live multi camera feed of the Awards (filmed by our camera operators) and our live SocialWall.

As each winner was announced, our on-site editing team created quick turnaround video within 2-3 minutes, which was then tweeted with the winner's Twitter handle. So far the overall champion tweet has recieved 101 likes and 35 retweet, boosting the reach of the Awards. We also conducted backstage interviews with each winner which were added into the winner clips to give them and the Awards another burst of attention a few days later.

At the end of the night we had produced an overall highlights video which was played to screen as well shared on social media.

Filming Olly Murs at 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.
