Remote event production for the Digital Running Show

Setting the pace for virtual events

At the Digital National Running Show for Raccoon Events we've had to quickly adapt and expand the technology we've been using for years to create live links between speakers at home and a wider audience.

Now that all our government ministers and celebrity speakers are in their homes it's been an interesting challenge to ensure that they can be seen and heard as well as interact with presenters, while also turning round speakers in quick succession to keep the event flowing.

Inorder to create a reliable flow of high quality live content, we set up three remote event production galleries, socially distanced around our offices. We quickly discovered that the skills and technology we’ve developed for event TV over many years work really well in this new environment, including our branded socialwall, video play-in systems, talkback, countdown clocks and digital signage.

"We contacted the guys at Silverstream and they've been absolutely amazing,"

"They've helped us pull everything together. They've pre-record a lot of the sessions. They've enable us to have multiple chairpersons in multiple different places."

Mike Seaman, Raccoon Events CEO

"We've thrown curved balls at them"

"with last minutes sessions that need recording. We've switched up and changed the agenda. We've done all those last minute things that we do as event organisers and there's not been a single flaw. I've had nothing but positive feedback."

"Before I probably would have told you that I don't like virtual events and I don't think that they can work. I'm a convert, and I think one of the reasons I'm a convert is Silverstream and the support they've given us, they've been absolutely amazing."

Mike Seaman, Raccoon Events CEO

Another new challenge has been learning how to best interface with all the different virtual event platforms. In this case it was Hopin. We'd already done some test events with Hopin, so we quickly got to grips with it and found it really easy to work with.
