Last week we were asked by Future PLC to facilitate a live stream for the Golden Joystick Awards 2020. The awards are a highlight in the gaming calendar, it is the globes largest public-voted games awards and it returned albeit differently for its 38th year.
This year’s show was reimagined as a digital broadcast that celebrated the best games of the last 12 months, and looks forward to the next generation of consoles and creators, a particularly important award ceremony as the PS5 & Xbox X had just been launched. The Golden Joystick Awards featured a variety of famous hosts, new game trailers and exclusive reports.
We were entrusted to make sure the stream went seamlessly, normally a relatively straight forward process however with the added complexity of streaming to seven different destinations simultaneously including the likes of Twitch, YouTube and Facebook. Not only this but we had the pleasure of working with Harry Mack, who towards the end of the stream provided his superb freestyle rapping act which required us to patch him in from his home in Los Angeles along with selected guests who had the honour of being part of his performance.
It was a huge success and many congratulations to Future PLC for being able to bring the awards to life in the most difficult of years.
