Worldwide Live Broadcasting

Thursday, August 7th, 2008, 9:21 am

For the last few days we have been testing and trialling a method of providing live video broadcasts on the Internet for those who unfortunately cannot make the Summer of Sonic convention, due to living too far away or other commitments. Isn’t that great news? Now if you have been getting excited about the event but live all the way in America or Germany or elsewhere, you can simply watch our video feed and see the action unfold throughout the whole day!

On the Summer of Sonic website and The Sonic Stadium, we will be providing a special link for you to access our video feed with on the 9th August. The best program to use in order to watch our upcoming feed is VLC Player - you can download and install the program using the linked text. Then it’s simply a case of opening VLC, hitting ‘File > Open’ and copy-pasting the link into the program.

Actual content has not been decided for our live broadcasts yet; we may simply use this as a tool to showcase the whole hall floor from the crow’s nest throughout the day, and then focus on the main stage during the major events, such as the Q&A session and the Sonic Hour live. Richard’s performance on piano and keyboard is unlikely to be broadcast live, but may be recorded to be watched later on in the evening.

We’ll see all of you - or rather, you’ll see us - on Saturday.
