At the end of April, we began the work on this year’s VOOM – the UK and Ireland’s biggest and most valuable pitch competition. It offers start-ups and entrepreneurs across the UK a chance of winning a slice of a prize fund worth more than £1 million!

For us the project kicked off with the live broadcast of the 29 HOUR PITCHATHON – a gruelling overnight production which captured the action as 160 entrepreneurs made their case for progression through to the final rounds. This required us to provide 2 sets of crew across filming, encoding, streaming and editing to work through the day and night.


By June, after 14 demanding weeks of all-out #VOOM, six finalists pitched live the our all-star panel: Richard Branson, Tyra Banks, Sara Blakely, Marcus Butler and Peter Kelly.

The event was held at ITV Studios and presented by Konnie Huq, making it as close to a live TV experience as it’s possible to get!
Utilising the ITV camera crew, Streaming Tank delivered a dynamic 7 camera shoot along with vision mixing, encoding and streaming to the VOOM website.
