ExCeL launches new virtual event studio
ExCeL London has launched a new virtual event studio, in partnership with production company Anna Valley.
The studio can broadcast video from hybrid and virtual events, with space for up to 30 delegates in person.
The set features an adaptable digital backdrop and stage floor, multiple cameras and a full sound system and lighting rig. Content can be streamed to Zoom, YouTube, Facebook and more.
The studio is located in a central, self-contained area, above the venue’s main event halls. Separate, but within close proximity are office spaces, green rooms, and production areas.
Jeremy Rees, CEO, ExCeL London, said: “During this challenging time, we remain committed to providing our customers and guests with the best possible experience. This new state-of-the-art hybrid event studio supports us and them in our shared ambition of delivering world leading events.
“While nothing beats meeting face-to-face or being amid the buzz of an auditorium, this studio will enable organisers to deliver exceptional audience experiences whether the event is attended in person or remotely.
“And once larger, face-to-face conferences, exhibitions and events can return, this studio will act as a great addition for organisers seeking to reach a much larger audience.
Peter Jones, Managing Director, Anna Valley, said: “We are delighted to be working with ExCeL London to offer a superb virtual events studio within the venue. With our heritage in broadcast and reputation for providing live event and entertainment technology, we’re ideally suited to helping event professionals reinvent their physical shows as digital experiences and we’re really looking forward to working with ExCeL’s clients in this respect.”
