Best Online Video Platform This is for our fully manageable OVP (Online Video Platform) where users can easily organise and manage their video and audio content to create, share and control resources using a bespoke and completely customizable tool. Best Streaming Services Provider At Groovy Gecko, we push the boundaries every day on what streaming can do and how we can improve the viewer experience. We work with 360 degree footage, VR and build interactive features to engage with live audiences around the world in new and exciting ways through multiple platforms and channels. Webcast Platform Our Webcasting Platform is all about innovation, giving users the ability to webcast over multiple devices with a huge range of integration, interactive options and control. This platform can provide clips of content to social media, while still live streaming, and even comes with an advanced statistics collection package so data can be collected and analysed to better understand your ROI. Best Streaming Innovation This is our latest streaming innovation, REALM (Real Time Engagement and Live Management). This solution is a moderation and poll management tool that enables moderators to easily manage live questions and create polls during a stream easily in one place. We have also built in additional features including customised banners where the chosen live question can be displayed on screen to the audience, creating a new level of a branded user experience to maximise audience engagement and interest. We are very proud to be nominated for these awards and are looking forward to seeing the lists of finalists in all categories very soon.
