"Where Light Falls" - Historic England
Historic England approached us to live stream two special events.
Where Light Falls told the story of those who risked their lives to protect the places they loved during the Second World War, at two cathedrals with opposing fates.
Stunning installations transformed the façades and precincts of St Paul’s Cathedral and Coventry Cathedral after dark, combining new poetry with powerful visuals and archive photography. Visitors were immersed in atmospheric light and sound, unique to each location.
We worked with their in-house digital team to plan the broadcasts and ensure we could technically deliver them in the challenging environments.
Both locations posed technical challenges mainly with broadband provision but utilising our bonded technology we managed to deliver a reliable stream even when the host could not provide a connection.
At Coventry we added a second camera to allow us to cover all the other projections and provide the viewer with a more in-depth experience.
Historic England enjoyed a huge response to both broadcasts.
Approx 35,000 people watched the St.Pauls Cathedral broadcast and over 50,000 tuned in to watch Coventry.
We look forward to supporting them on future events.
“We were looking for professionals to help us set up a live stream of our live shows in London and Coventry. solo16 were instrumental in building this success and they have been very creative to find technical solutions to all the challenges we faced. We were able to reach tens of thousands of people online with our live streams and this has helped to give much more coverage and legacy to our beautiful project. We are delighted with the results and are now looking for more opportunities to live stream to our audiences. Thank you!”
