We’re delighted to announce our webcasting partnership with Kings Place Events. This partnership demonstrates the flexibility of our Stream Connect webcasting platform, where we can adapt it to work with their production workflow. This results in us working as an extension of the Kings Place production team – rather than a technology partner.
Kings Place is an award winning events venue in the heart of London. Located just a five minute walk from Kings Cross and St Pancras Stations, Kings Place houses two auditoriums and a fantastic selection of event spaces with spectacular views over Regent’s Canal.
Kings Place’s Head of Production, Nell Halford, says: “We are very pleased to partner with StreamAMG on such a forward-thinking solution. At Kings Place we’ve always prided ourselves on our technology offering and this announcement continues that trend and proves that we are constantly looking for ways to offer our clients even more options for their event.”
Identifying the need
As event organisers’ need for reliable real-time streaming and messaging increases, so too has the necessity for a robust media platform. The partnership means that Kings Place will be able to handle live HD streaming as well bespoke microsite options, such as password protection, slide sync, Q&A and real-time audience polling. Clients will also be able to enjoy on-demand options, where their events are stored online for a number of weeks after the event, allowing for data capture, post-event statistics and analysis.
Recently, Kings Place partnered with StreamAMG to deliver their first live streamed event for Mothercare. The client wanted to broadcast their London event to their national and international offices. Kings Place managed the event production and filming, and StreamUK managed all aspects of the webcast. The player sat within a branded microsite, designed by StreamAMG, with HD and lo-res video options.
The two companies started working together in 2010 on ad-hoc events that needed specific streaming options, with talks beginning towards the end of 2014 regarding partnering together in an official capacity.
