Voom from Virgin
£1 Million Live Final
Live from The Lowry in Manchester and East London’s Tobacco Dock, Taylor Made Media produced an incredible event for Virgin Media Voom Pitch 2018 over three days last week, and we were excited to be part of the production. Pioneering businesses from a variety of categories pitched and progressed through to the final stage to compete for £1 Million pounds in prizes in front of Sir Richard Branson and a panel of judges. Professional presenters settled the nerves of the pitchers and the Director alike, giving the event the polish it deserved.
With a multiroom PPU setup for the early pitching rounds in Manchester, and an AV and PPU setup that would not have looked out of place in a major TV studio, the event went live to Facebook via Satellite and backup bonded LTE encoders. Backstage a team of networked editors and video crews were generating live highlights and VT packages for the broadcast and social media throughout the day, shining a light on the many stories and interesting characters taking part in this years competition.
Congratulations to all the winners and participants, and a huge thank you to Taylor Made for involving us in the event. Roll on next year!
