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

The main event channel can be watched online at - https://live.newscientist.com/ 

Our daily highlights can also be viewed on the New Scientist YouTube channel - https://www.youtube.com/user/newscientistvideo 


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.
