LIVE MEDIA GROUP IS NOWLIVE WITH VIRTUAL WRISTBAND™
The company to revolutionize the entertainment, music & music festival world with new pay-per-view virtual wristband™ technology.
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA (January 28, 2014) – Live Media Group (LMG), the premiere full service entertainment production and media company announced today, their newly developed technology, Virtual Wristband™. LMG’s Virtual Wristband™ is designed to create pay-per-view access for people to watch live concerts, music festivals and other entertainment events on mobile devices, online, or on web-enabled televisions.
When asked about the new technology offering, Brad Sexton, President and CEO of LMG said, "The best description of Virtual Wristband™ is that it’s a pay-per-view of premium live online content where our clients can monetize their exclusive entertainment events.” The technology allows clients to take a custom iframe or embed code and host the event on their own web destination, where they can control the quality while protecting their brand.
"The response has been overwhelming from record labels, music festival owners, fashion brands and movie studios, all seeing a great value in the technology but most importantly, our turn key, one-stop-shop, full service approach," says Sexton. “The value of Virtual Wristband™ to the consumer is immeasurable, allowing them to 'virtually attend' events and concerts that they otherwise might not be able to travel to or get tickets to when the event sells out."
Live Media Group has been transforming the typical entertainment broadcast experience into a 360 degree personalized look at highly anticipated entertainment events over the past several years. Now, with the development of Virtual Wristband™, they have created a unique way for fans to experience their favorite artists and music events from the comforts of their homes, online, including mobile devices. LMG powers events through their multi-bitrate, white label, embedded nowlive player where viewers can individualize their personal experiences by selecting camera angles geared to their interests, participate in live social conversations as well as preview photos through their live photo stream.
Many times Live Media Group powers the entire live event experience for their clients from creative to production services & equipment to encoding and web streaming using their nowlive player. With the addition of Virtual Wristband™ and this pay-per-view feature, they give fans the exclusive opportunity to watch live concerts, music festivals and other entertainment events from anywhere in the world, on any device while providing their clients with a brand new revenue stream.
"We have produced some of the biggest entertainment events online, including several music festivals and many of our clients have challenged us to build a solution tailored to their specific needs. Virtual Wristband™ was built with a great deal of collaboration from our existing clients and that’s part of why we are extremely excited to bring this to the marketplace," said Sexton.
