Groovy Gecko to Demonstrate Facebook Live Video at the Media Production Show

Posted on: June 3, 2016

London, 3rd June 2016 – Groovy Gecko will be demonstrating its integration with Facebook’s live video API at the Media Production Show.

The new live video API was launched in April at Facebook’s F8 Developer Conference. It will offer content providers the ability to stream videos live into a Facebook player. Groovy Gecko has partnered with Facebook to develop an integration with the API, enabling content providers to setup their live videos for publishing into Facebook.

Groovy Gecko has already delivered a number of live videos using the integration since its launch in April. This includes a series of live webcasts for Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution and the unveiling of a brand new series by Walking Dead creator, Outcast.

Groovy Gecko will also be demonstrating its live 360 workflow, enabling the next generation of 360 video streams. The 360 workflow is compatible across multiple devices, including VR headsets, and embeddable in social media.

“There is a great deal of innovation happening right now for online video,” commented Jake Ward, “For media owners, there is a much bigger opportunity to engage with consumers in an interesting and compelling way. We are proud to be continuing to enable that engagement.”

Groovy Gecko will be exhibiting at the Media Production Show from 9th to 10th June on stand 232.
