Kings Place Announces Partnership with StreamUK

We are delighted to announce a new partnership with broadcasting and technology experts StreamUK that will see the venue remain at the cutting edge of what we can offer to our clients.

As event organisers’ need for reliable real-time streaming and messaging increases, so too has the necessity for a robust media platform. The partnership means that Kings Place will be able to handle live HD streaming as well bespoke microsite options, such as password protection, slide sync, Q&A and real-time audience polling. Clients will also be able to enjoy on-demand options, where their events are stored online for a number of weeks after the event, allowing for data capture, post-event statistics and analysis.

Kings Place’s Head of Production, Nell Halford, says: “We are very pleased to partner with StreamUK on such a forward-thinking solution. At Kings Place we’ve always prided ourselves on our technology offering and this announcement continues that trend and proves that we are constantly looking for ways to offer our clients even more options for their event.”

StreamUK’s Sales & Marketing Director, Aad van Musscher, says: “Both Kings Place and StreamUK are recognised for their high quality, tailored client experiences. This partnership is a perfect fit for us, as they give us the chance to work with brilliant new clients, and we can bring a seamless, value added webcasting service.”

Recently, Kings Place partnered with StreamUK to deliver their first live streamed event for Mothercare. The client wanted to broadcast their London event to their national and international offices. Kings Place managed the event production and filming, and StreamUK managed all aspects of the webcast. The player sat within a branded microsite, designed by StreamUK, with HD and lo-res video options.

The two companies started working together in 2010 on ad-hoc events that needed specific streaming options, with talks beginning towards the end of 2014 regarding partnering together in an official capacity.
