covid-19 lockdown solutions.
Groovy Gecko understands that it’s definitely not ‘business as usual’. Although in-person events and meetings can never be replaced, we are focusing on helping businesses ensure their events and presentations engage with their audience through interactive live streaming. By using interactive tools and choosing the right platform for your virtual event, you can ensure high engagement rates and help deliver a clear Return on Investment.
We have a global team of producers, directors and crews which means that you can have a local team manage your event with strict social distancing measures and travel restrictions. The safety of our crew and clients is of the most importance, so we have guidelines and solutions in place so the quality and delivery of your live streamed event is not affected and you can still see high production value despite lockdown restrictions and travel bans. Since March 2020, we’ve worked with a variety of brands to deliver high quality and interactive streams including Universal Music Group’s Andrea Bocelli: Music For Hope, Westminster Council’s Live Q&A, Cancer Research’s Race For Life At Home and Scottish Parliament’s Leaders’ Virtual Questions. Of course, we have also been extending our Enterprise Video Platform (EckoEnterprise) to enable our corporate clients to continue to conduct meetings using remote presenters.
Our teams are continuing to take new inquiries and working with current clients to help their online events succeed in an ever changing new world. Thinking about live streaming your event? Contact us here or scroll down to see our lockdown solutions.
Using our self-managed Live Presentation System, EckoEnterprise, you can present slides with one or multiple remote presenters, with interactive features including Q&A. Stream to your company website, social media pages or secure your message with comprehensive event invitations and security. You can bring in remote translators for a multi-language broadcast. After a keynote presentation, you can also offer multiple ‘Break Out’ rooms for a more intimate discussion and feedback using GG Session, our breakout session add-on.
Multi-Location Virtual Link Up tool
Perfect for interviews, audience Q&A’s, short presentations or virtual music events, this virtual only solution allows presenters in multiple locations to present a live stream, allowing multiple remote locations to connect live and present as part of a live stream which can then be delivered to online audiences via any of the stream destinations.
Sometimes you can’t wait to get your message out! We have cost effective solutions that facilitate en-mass live stream delivery to all platform under 3 seconds. If you really, really need everyone to be on the same page, we can achieve sub-one seconds delay.
Also known as multi-breakout rooms, you can video chat privately one on one. Although talking in a group is great, sometimes the privacy of a 1-2-1 video call is necessary. GG Session is the perfect solution.
REALM is a suite of tools which help you increase the engagement, accessibility and reach of their live stream. The tools offer a user-friendly, front-end platform to manage features such as live questions, viewer polling / voting, news tickers and stream syndication.
You can pre-record your event with vision mixed content to present as a live broadcast wherever and whenever you want. Perfect for events without live audience interactivity, you can take the risk out of live streaming and ensure your event is recorded in the way you want ahead of it being posted ‘as live’.

local & remote Production.
Local and safe production during lockdown is an option thanks to our worldwide network of incredible producers, directors, audio specialists and set-up crew. Local crew can manage everything on-site while the streams are managed remotely by our UK Groovy Gecko teams including visual mixing and the moderation of content for interactive live streams. We have strict social distancing measures and sanitation in place and ensure there are proper PPE for our crew on-site so you can carry out the safest possible broadcast.
We also offer Remote Production Packs. This small production pack offers the basics of everything you need for a remote live stream. Once set up, we can control your video and audio feeds remotely, so this kit is more of a soft touch for the presenter using it. The kit is a double setup, meaning there are two of everything, including 4K webcams, laptops, lapel mics, in-ear comms, LED lighting, tripods and cabling.
remote & Venue Connectivity.
As an addition to our live streaming and production services during lockdown, Groovy Gecko Connect can ensure you are highly connected by acquiring your content from anywhere. We have satellite uplinking and downlinking facilities, including connections to BT Tower, fibre & NY waterfront. We also have a suite of LiveU units which can provide connectivity on-site no matter where you are or how strong your broadband connection is. The broad range of signal acquisition options allows us to downlink content from anywhere in the world without needing to be on site. Once we have the feed at our London Hub, we can then deliver the streams to a host of platforms including social media pages, our Live Presentation System or directly to Press and Media around the world.
LiveU offers a solution where internet connectivity is limited on-site. Particularly useful for outside broadcasts, or those on the move, the unit works by bonding cellular data (4G, wifi, internet) to create an upstream internet connection which transmits video content back to our London Hub. We can also offer a mobile hotspot for immediate and instant internet access, even whilst on the move!
We utilities these technologies as well as some other tricks of the trade to acquire your content from remote locations including from venues via Groovy Gecko Venue Connect.
