This week, we want to shed light on Green Hippo, and their award-winning Hippotizer Media Server range. We spoke to Nick Spencer, Product Specialist at the company, about what their product and technology has to offer to creatives.
At the height of two successful screenings in the US of our Symphony of Now – the hybrid experience featuring Alex.Do, we sat down with Thalia Davies, Senior Event Producer at battleROYAL, once more. We talked about all things behind the scenes, reactions from the audience and how it was different from producing a live event.
With events going digital, technology has become even more so indispensable. We have been using disguise’s XR workflows within our hybrid event productions. So the opportunity to speak to Peter Kirkup, Global Technical Solutions Manager at disguise, about their vision for the future of events, was particularly relevant to us and our quest to develop new engaging formats.
Peter heads a team that is responsible for technical pre-sales. He manages the demo setup for customers. Therefore, Peter does not only have a good understanding of the newest technological features on the market, but also of the creatives‘ and end customers‘ needs. The conversation was especially interesting in terms of gaining a greater understanding of what digital elements enhance the immersive dimension of an event.
We are excited to share an interview with Tom Bueschemann, CEO of Platoon Global Communications. Tom was leading the onsite concepting and production of the 30th anniversary of German unification event “Garden of Unity” at the German embassy in Seoul, South Korea, where the hybrid experience of our Symphony of Now premiered on October 17, 2020.
Our staff pick this week is an artist whose music is close to our hearts and collaborations: Alex.Do! His in-depth DJ sets are hours-long trips to other locations… Melancholy and a constant gaze inward are omnipresent in his music, earning him a household name in Berlin and across the scene alike.
