Creative Streaming Solution

Our latest solution for the creative market is being more and more used to stream events live. Our Scoop has been used for the Live streaming of 360 content from DJ Hardwell in Miami and The Passion in The Netherlands.


At March 16, 2016 DJ Hardwell streamed his performance live to the internet using the Scoop.


Hardwell and his award-winning imprint Revealed Recordings are always one step ahead of the curve, and are now welcoming fans all over the world to join him on a fully immersive 360 live stream. By using future-forward equipment rigged with a multitude of cameras and visually stimulating additions, fans will be able to feel like they are on stage with Hardwell, standing right there in the DJ booth during his set at Nikki Beach in Miami Beach.


Following the news that Hardwell has become one of the most nominated artists in the annual International Dance Music Awards (IDMA's) in Miami, with an incredible twelve nominations including nods for Best Solo Artist and Best Global DJ amongst others. Hardwell is once again reaching above and beyond, pushing further the experience for fans to enjoy his music and embrace the experience and culture of electronic dance music from the dancefloor to the home.


The Hardwell live stream event was made possible by VBR, LeaseWeb and Littlstar. VBR, a virtual reality broadcasting company based in Amsterdam and a part of Scopic, is providing a state-of-the-art 360 camera, equipped with two fish-eye lenses that can stitch footage on the spot delivering a UHD stream. This allows people from all over the world to virtually attend Hardwell's show; a first at any electronic dance music event so far. LeaseWeb is providing the CDN for the live stream. LeaseWeb's proprietary content delivery network (CDN) and globally-distributed data centers minimize latency and buffering, while dynamic traffic bursting and adaptive bitrate streaming guarantee the best possible viewer experience. Hardwell's live stream performance will be the first live stream event on Littlstar, the premier global network dedicated to immersive virtual reality and 360 video.
