Esports & Gaming.

Groovy Gecko has strong relationships with all of our clients, particularly with social media platforms including Facebook, Twitch and YouTube. This means we can stream across any new platform extensions with the ability to integrate our interactive tools seamlessly, creating the best viewer experience possible.

We produce high-quality streams while eliminating risk, and have delivered complex and interactive live eSports, gaming and charity gaming events for brands including Twitch, Vodafone, McLaren and Square Enix. We’re creative technologists at our core, offering the most cutting edge and reliable tech as well as any creative input you need, from live streaming and video production to event management and league ops. Our team can offer advice on the best use of tournament graphics, sponsorship deliverables, platform engagement tools and how you can make the most of your event to maximise engagement with both your in-room and online audience.

Our approach is modular and flexible, meaning you can pick and choose whichever services you need. We’ve worked on a range of projects of different sizes and have experience working alongside agencies, publishers, tournament ops and production companies. We can fit into your existing production workflow whether you need just the tech for your live stream or a full end-to-end package. Because of our ability to scale, we can deliver everything from small gaming events featuring a handful of players to multi-day live events with hundreds of competitors playing simultaneously. Our technology and production workflows are also highly adaptable, from SDI to NDI, and our team is consistently improving to ensure your event runs as smoothly as possible.

Venue Connectivity.

As an addition to our live streaming services, Groovy Gecko also benefits from a satellite downlinking facility, with connections to BT Tower & NY waterfront. We also have a suite of LiveU units which can provide connectivity on-site no matter where you are. 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 platforms or our LPS.

LiveU offers a solution where internet connectivity is limited onsite. Particularly useful for outside broadcasts, or those on the move, the unit works by bonding cellular data to create an upstream internet connection which transmits video content back to our London hub and can also act as a standalone internet connection in ‘data bridge’ mode.
