LTN Global Case Study: Virtual Fan Activation – NFL Draft Audience Contribution with LTN Global Live Video Cloud
While the Coronavirus pandemic has resulted in putting all sports on hold, the 2020 NFL Draft gathered millions of viewers and was a resounding success. The broadcast required a massive production of a live show that involved a large number of fans interacting in real time. Nearly 500 fans took part in the NFL Draft from the comfort of their own homes by streaming their reactions shown live during the show. All of this was made possible through use of LTN Global’s Live Video Cloud service.
