Grimaldi Forum Monaco is setting up a streaming studio


To complete its offering of events combining face-to-face with virtual participation, the Grimaldi Forum Monaco (GFM) is implementing a new concept hybrid studio with a permanent, modular and evolving platform for the organisation of TV shows and streaming events. The launch of this studio was on the 25 September with a first webinar during which 200 participants from all over the world will be able to interact with the speakers by means of a chat broadcast from the platform.
Located in the heart of the Le Guelfe space which occupies more than 600 m2 on the second floor of the Principality’s convention and cultural centre, this fully-equipped permanent studio is designed in such a way as to enhance the digital or hybrid event that an organiser can offer to participants who cannot be physically present at an event.
Covering an area of 50 m2, it is equipped with a lighting rig with three turret cameras, a recording control room and a modular platform with three possible configurations: the TV news platform version with the equipment mounted high up, a conference podium version that can accommodate up to four people at any one time, and a lounge version with fireside chairs and coffee tables for five people (in strict compliance with social distancing measures). These configurations are available with a minimum rental period of one hour.
This „GFM-created“ set is supported by a full team with recognised standards of excellence which will be in charge of the video, sound and lighting control rooms at the edge of the set. A 12m x 2.5m “green screen” offers you a choice of the immediate surroundings of the Grimaldi Forum or any other background desired by the organiser, whether a fixed view or in live-camera mode. The virtual streams can be sent to different platforms, from the dedicated website to social networks. Logistical support is also offered as an option: before going live with a turnkey registration tool, during the live event with several options of interactivity with the public, and after the live event with the delivery of videos made in post-production.
While the events sector is going through major upheavals linked to the issues of health security and social distancing, the Grimaldi Forum Monaco is adapting. After receiving the Monaco Safe label which guarantees the organisation of an event at the GFM under the best conditions, the Principality’s conference and cultural centre now has a full range of services with innovative event solutions that combine face-to-face with virtual participation.
