online video platform.

Our Online Video Platform (OVP) is perfect for when you need reliable delivery of your live and on-demand video content to various devices. We work with you to define your specific requirements, so we can create a bespoke online platform that fulfils your video storage needs.

At its most basic level, the OVP acts as a common repository for all video and audio content which can be organized into categories, channels and playlists, tagged with sophisticated metadata. The OVP automatically transcodes master files into every format you require from PC to tablet and mobile to set top box, which saves you a significant amount of time. With this platform, you can create bespoke video players that match your company branding, offering a seamlessly customized product. While you manage, approve and publish content, you can also control custom settings such as video expiry, limiting viewership based on geolocation, or even by IP address. The sharing functionality within the player also allows you to easily share approved content via other websites as well as social media. Videos can also be tagged with free text which can be used for Video Search Engine Optimisation (VSEO).

API’s and additional modules allow integration with a wide variety of existing Content Management Systems (CMS). This allows for Facebook integration, SharePoint and Moodle functionality, as well as the capability to set up an in-house corporate YouTube so employees can share their own content. Groovy Gecko work with other software partners to supply the ‘back end’ of our OVP platforms. We are very selective, and only work with the best and most established and trustworthy OVP providers. We use these suppliers for the base of our OVPs, to which we add bespoke elements, from end-user clipping to multi-language capabilities, to create the perfect solution for your organisation.

Groovy Gecko can make your OVP as simple or complex as you need. For example, we created an OVP for the Royal College of Physicians (RCP) that they could run by themselves on a day-to-day basis. For the RCP, we integrated a front-end platform into their existing main website, introduced paywall mechanisms and the ability to live stream, as well as implemented an automated captioning service that offered closed captions in multiple languages. Considering Facebook’s report that suggested 85% of video content is watch with the sound off, our multi-language subtitle capability can be highly beneficial for any brand looking for an OVP solution.

Groovy Gecko also offer enhanced services so we can help with streaming, production and set-up, or simply fill in the missing piece of the production jigsaw. From single camera shoots to multi camera broadcasts, we can supply specialist camera equipment, vision mixing, sound and multi skilled operators for both portable and truck-based solutions.

Stream To:

Your Company Website

Perfect for any event from an internal company awards ceremony to a strategy meeting, we can stream your event privately or publicly to your company website, completely customised so the live video is embedded seamlessly onto a landing page.

LinkedIn

This platform is perfect for B2B communications as well as for brands who want to extend their reach to professionals active on social media, beyond the typical social platforms of Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Streaming to LinkedIn is also a great way for corporate brands to interact with their audience in a more casual and interesting way, as opposed to an online webcast or live presentation.

Secure & Private URL

When you want to stream privately through a secure URL, we can set up your live video stream with a hidden URL and secure login system.

EckoEnterprise

Our self-managed LPS allows you to take control of your live stream in-house, with easy-to-use interactive tools such as live polling, questions, collateral release of documents at specific times, question-up voting and even settings that determine admin and viewer control of video vs. slides sizes during the live presentation.

Additional Services.

Production

Groovy Gecko can offer both full end to end production or fill in the missing piece of the production jigsaw. From single camera shoots to multi camera broadcasts, we can supply specialist camera equipment, vision mixing, sound and multi skilled operators for both portable and truck-based solutions.

GG Shuttle

The GG shuttle Is a compact and portable production unit designed to offer the ultimate flexibility for live broadcasts. The shuttle Includes encoders, vision mixing, audio solutions and camera equipment and was designed to allow users not to be confined to streaming from one location.

GG Live Chat

This is a real time, video conversation tool which can connect multiple locations together. Whether you have a worldwide cinema link up ahead of a film premiere or more Intimate fire side chat with a director, GG Live Chat offers the opportunity to connect your talent and audiences and bring them together for a live event.

Multi-language Features

Producing content in multiple languages vastly increases the global reach of your webcast as well as engagement. Our software allows you to create a multi-lingual user experience. We can dub sessions live into different languages, provide multi-language slides and subtitles depending on what region they’re in, as well as accept, translate and moderate questions in any language. The number of languages we can accommodate is limited only by the amount of space available for interpreters and translation booths. For example, Spanish audience members who are watching an English language webcast dubbed into Spanish with Spanish subtitles at the bottom of their screen, can send in a question in Spanish, which is then translated into English and sent through the normal moderation process before being sent to the panel and featured on screen in a question banner graphic.

In-Room Interactive App

Accessed by your in-room audience via QR code or URL, this app works on any popular mobile handset or tablet via browser so there is no need to download a separate app. It allows audience members to send in questions, take part in polls and upvote selected questions. It also allows people to submit questions anonymously which can improve engagement. Results and responses are combined with the online audience and moderated in the same way.

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.
