Free pairs of shoes
We were brought in by Universal and Vans to work alongside award winning director Jim Parsons and our good friends at OneBox Television to broadcast Metallica at the House of Vans.
Metallica were performing at the HOV, an unusually small venue for a band of their stature. Flux were brought in to bring high quality streaming to the fans that couldn’t make it down.
It was a huge event and as such Flux needed to make sure there was no chance for failure. To make sure this was the case, we made use of our Primary and Backup streaming system. We ran our primary stream from the internal network at the HOV and brought down a satellite truck and utilised a mix of IP satellite and 4G for the backup.
Broadcast to the Metallica YouTube Page and the House of Vans website, the event was a huge success and was viewed by over 1 million people in the 24 hours it was live (3 hours live, 1 day on-demand).
We also got some new shoes, master of puppets! more like masters of broadcast!
