Envoi, a provider of cloud-based content management, distribution, and monetization technology, has been helping The Miracle Theater, a Californian entertainment venue, produce, shoot, edit, and stream live music, stand-up comedy and film premieres directly during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Having been forced to close its doors during the pandemic, the owner and operators of The Miracle Theater, former technical and creative staff on American Idol, produced remote production and live streaming for music events. On top of providing 100 Gbps Internet connectivity, Envoi has partnered with Blackmagic Design to provide The Miracle Theater with 4K live switches and recording software. At the same time, Envoi integrated Videon video processing technology for edge computing with Amazon Web Services (AWS) Media Services. This combination makes live video processing and distribution faster and more efficient. Video content is streamed using Envoi’s cloud-based content management, distribution, and monetization platform.
“Envoi has enabled us to put in place a full broadcast workflow, helping us to reach a global audience for events taking place at the theatre,” said Owen Smith of The Miracle Theater.
Envoi CEO Nicholas Stokes added: “Since the pandemic we are partnering with a number of independent theatres to enable them to find new ways to reach their audiences. The Miracle Theater is extremely forward-thinking and now has a broadcast-grade setup, enabling full remote production and distribution for the theatre and its event partners, which will continue to be valuable way beyond Covid.”
