Live stream needs & objectives
For the Philadelphia Theatre Company, it was the third year of Play Brawl, a friendly competition which pairs community leaders with professional actors, to recreate iconic scenes from movies, TV shows, and musicals. Theatrical performances, votes, awards ceremony and auctions are an integral part of this unique event whose objective is to support the artistic sector and create a real interactivity between the public and the performers. Of course, the event is typically done live at the theatre but this year things had to be done differently.
"We were looking for a more highly-produced feel, more like a TV news broadcast with backgrounds behind split-screens, managed arrangement of panelists, side-by-side of multiple panelists and recorded content, title overlays, and such." - Matt Davis, Production Manager
The Play Brawl is a participatory experience, and preserving audience choice, feedback, voting, and the sense of a live auction was important to them. That why they needed a professional live streaming solution to manage, custom and broadcast their event like a real show.
