The States of Guernsey agreed to hold a multi-option referendum on the method of electing People’s Deputies to the States of Deliberation. The referendum will be held on Wednesday 10th October, 2018.

On Wednesday 3rd October, a week before islanders were invited to the polls, a hustings meeting was held at Beau Sejour Leisure Centre. It was an opportunity for everyone to learn about more of the five options being proposed.

Not only were the hustings broadcast live on BBC Guernsey, but the whole debate was available to view online via the States of Guernsey Facebook page – and we were invited along to livestream it on their behalf.

For the first time in our history, outside of the existing multi camera live streaming contract we hold with Guernsey FC, this was the first time we streamed a multi camera event online, and in this case it was broadcast via Facebook. Utilising a clean sound feed from the microphones on stage and a direct link to the projector video being operated, we were able to switch between these on the night, bringing the audience the best of both worlds, being at the event whilst enjoying the comfort of their living rooms.

Using our video encoder and extensive experience in livestreaming we offered a reliable streaming solution, by bonding multiple networks together offering the best possible connection at the venue. Do you have an event that you would like recording for posterity or sharing with a larger audience online? We have a number of services that you can benefit from, so get in touch as we are here to help.
