Imagecraft Branches Out to Live Streaming Services

The hit comedy talk show Rove LA hosted by Australian native Rove McManus, and The Pyramid, an all-new contemporary take on the classic game show, are currently using Imagecraft(IC) Productions live streaming and remote Video Village services for their producers and executives around the world.

Rove LA, which is filmed live weekly at Warner Brothers Studios, features comedy segments and interviews with celebrity guests such as Russell Brand, Justin Timberlake, Emmy Rossum, and Steve Carrell, to name a few. The show is presented in a similar fashion to the Australian television variety show Rove, also hosted by McManus. With the show taping in Los Angeles, producers needed to provide executives based in Australia with a real-time view of the set. Imagecraft's live stream specialists set up the program feed, encode and stream it internationally.

Industry News ImageSimilar to the services supplied to Rove LA, The Pyramid needed to accommodate producers and executives who could not be on set. With the show taping upwards of six episodes per day, a remote village was necessary. Jason Been, President of Imagecraft, served as Technical Manager on the show, implementing and providing technical and live streaming services, allowing those granted access the ability to view a high quality live stream of the shoot conveniently on any mobile device or computer.

Besides working with network TV shows, Imagecraft has also provided live streaming coverage of red carpet events, award shows, and event productions.

Rove LA currently airs on TV Guide Network on Saturdays at Midnight/11C. More info on Rove LA and upcoming guests can be found on TV Guide Network.

The Pyramid airs weekdays 6pm/5C on the Game Show Network. To find out more about the show or see what celebrities will be helping contestants in this fast-paced word guessing game visit GSN.
