To provide a high-profile live stream announcing the winner of the Amazon Kindle Awards 2021.

After the huge success of BT’s Unbreakable Disco featuring Sophie Ellis Bextor, Academy PR asked us to create a similar event with multiple cameras for the Amazon Kindle Awards. The event was to be hosted by the BBC’s Claire Balding and profile the five finalists work and interview each of them before announcing the overall winner.
As we were in a state of high alert with COVID we elected to use multiple PTZ cameras (remote cameras that can be controlled from the gallery) this ensured versatile coverage of the event but kept numbers to a minimum on the studio floor. The cameras were fed into our Blackmagic Constellation 8K, which can take up to 40 inputs. From there, we were able to cut a live show and stream the event onto You Tube.
Using the Panasonics UE70’s meant that we could keep the studio clear of operators to ensure we were covid secure, this meant that the people on set were kept to a minimum with the Producers and PTZ operators in the gallery overseeing the show. Using these UE70s meant that that our gallery director could program different shots. This gave us the flexibility to reframe during the stream if there was a more interesting angle.
Broadley is the perfect one-stop shop. Richard and his team have all the equipment and expertise required to livestream with multiple cameras, taking all the hassle out of event broadcasting. Broadley is a fantastic studio, with great people and great service.
