BACKGROUND

Graduway is the leading software provider for alumni, career and donor networks with 2,000+ clients in over 40 countries. Graduway believes that “the success of every school rests on its ability to build, cultivate and leverage its network of supporters.”

Graduway hold a series of events globally – Graduway Leaders Summit – for those in the careers services, alumni relations and advancement professionals. The team at Graduway enlisted Oxford Media Factory to provide full media coverage of one of these events at the prestigious British Museum in London.

CHALLENGE

Our brief was to produce and deliver a bespoke comprehensive live stream from the two-day conference. As some delegates were not able to attend the event in person, the talks and presentations needed to be streamed across the world.

SOLUTION

Our streaming rig allows us to control real-time switching between multiple live video cameras, while mixing in other media, such as presentation slides, pre-roll content, external video, static imagery or music. Graduway has a fully branded streaming service embedded into their website. In using this service we were able to give valuable marketing metrics such as:

  • User traceability
  • Viewing statistics
  • Location data for those watching around the world

This data helped Graduway make informed decisions about their future events.

During the live stream, the Director communicated with the camera positions to instruct and produce the streamed video content. The Director made sure the live stream maintained focus, whether that be the speaker or the presentation of the room.

We also worked with the on-site AV team to make sure the streams for the overflow audience were also of a high quality and gave a comprehensive viewing experience.

A full resolution recording of the day was recorded, live edited and was ready to be uploaded as “on-demand” content immediately after the event.

OUTCOME

Overall, this project was a huge success and a lot was learned. We did encounter a ‘down stream moment’ as the fire alarm at the British Museum was triggered! The museum had to evacuate the building so we quickly switched to a holding slide until we could continue the event, picking up where we left off. Future GLS events are being planned and we are looking to provide another flawless service.
