SVG Europe welcomes new Gold Sponsor Volcano City
Multi-language video solutions expert Volcano City has joined SVG Europe as a Gold Sponsor. The company has a long-standing specialism in live and on-demand content production solutions that help brands to reach new fans.
Among the company’s significant developments during 2017 has been the design and manufacture of a custom remote commentary console, Remote Commentary Console, which uses a standard USB port to connect to any PC. This broadcast-quality device allows three commentators to control their in-ear levels while the output is controlled by Volcano City’s remote support team. It’s simple to use and removes the need for audio engineers to be on site with the remote commentators.
Poker and e-sports
The company continues to secure new high-profile sports customers, including Poker Stars, the world’s largest poker site, which uses Volcano City’s remotely managed services to stream from their international poker events. The company supplies Poker Stars with a fully managed remote commentary solution in eight languages, live stream personalisation (regional graphics, in-stream regional adverts), redundancy play out, and simulcasting to multiple digital platforms, social media sites as well as their own platform.
Volcano City says it helped them engage with more than 3 million viewers on social media during the Monte-Carlo stop of their flagship 2017 tour, The Poker Stars Championship.
In other recent developments, ELC Gaming and their partner company Allied Esports harnessed Volcano City’s fully manned live MRC station (Stream Control Center) when streaming from the first-ever mobile Esports Arena, dubbed The Big Betty Truck.
“We ingested their feeds into our Stream Control Center and delivered their world feeds to channel partners across the globe. We assisted multiple social media influencers who were acting as re-streamers in ensuring that all technical aspects were met as well as handholding all technical producers throughout the productions,” says the spokesperson.
