The successful implementation of high-end live-streaming video production services for the Nobel Perspectives Live! event in Milan required careful planning, precise coordination, and flawless execution to ensure a seamless and engaging experience for the global audience. ORBIS Production leveraged its years of experience in high-profile event broadcasting and management to provide a flawless service for this unique event.
Here are some of the challenges we faced during the pre-production stage of the UBS event:
  • Technical Infrastructure:
    The technical infrastructure of a venue had to be up to delivering high-quality video and audio to a global audience. This included high-speed internet connectivity, reliable audio and video equipment, and a sufficient power supply. Additionally, contingency plans had to be in place in case of any technical issues that could arise during the live broadcast.
  • Venue Layout and Lighting:
    The venue layout and lighting had to be designed in a way to ensure that the ORBIS crew could capture high-quality video and audio and provide an optimal viewing experience for the remote audience. This involved working with the venue staff to ensure that the lighting and sound systems were optimized for live streaming.
  • Multilingual Broadcast:
    Because Nobel Perspectives Live! is a global event, the broadcast had to be conducted in multiple languages to reach a wide audience. This required having experienced interpreters who provided simultaneous translation. The team also had to provide a way to instantly switch between different audio streams.
  • Timezone Differences:
    As the event was broadcast globally, the production team had to be prepared to work across different time zones. This involved coordinating with remote teams, ensuring that the broadcast was scheduled at a convenient time for the target audience, and dealing with any issues that could arise due to the time difference.
  • Audience Engagement:
    To ensure that the remote audience was engaged and felt part of the event, the production team needed to incorporate interactive elements into the broadcast. These included using social media platforms, live polls and surveys, and responding to questions from the audience in real time.

The key to successful seamless live events is thorough preparation, second-by-second rehearsal, and the professionalism and consistency of the production teams. These professional skills are gained through years of experience.
Video production company in Italy
A few months before Nobel Perspectives Live! we, together with the creative agency Zoo Agency, conducted a series of vox pops with Bocconi University students on the streets of Milan to better understand the sentiments and opinions of the younger generation on global economics in today's fast-changing world.

This valuable video footage was then seamlessly integrated into a captivating sizzle reel that featured highlights from the event, including keynote speeches, panel discussions, and interviews. The sizzle reel also included behind-the-scenes clips and glimpses of the audience's reactions to the various presentations.

By including the vox pops in the sizzle reel, ORBIS and Zoo Agency provided a fresh perspective on the discussions that took place at Nobel Perspectives Live!, making the content more relevant and engaging for viewers. Furthermore, the incorporation of the younger generation's thoughts and sentiments on global economics helped to provide context and relevance to the overall theme of the event.
The preparation of the venue began two weeks before the event. The ORBIS team supervised the preparation of the decorations, stage, furniture, and also took care of branding design. In addition to that, a technical rehearsal as well as two test streaming live events were conducted.
