We have some exciting news this week! We have been shortlisted for the The Innovation and Ingenuity Award at Digital TV Europe's Video Tech Innovation Awards for our work with Lorraine Keane and Oxfam Ireland on Fashion Relief TV. 🚀
We are looking forward to attending the virtual event on the 8th of December, and wish all of the shortlisted companies the best of luck on the night!
In other news, we are sad to see Quibi finally shut down after six months of operations. It was an ambitious streaming platform, run by a talented team, but ultimately failed to connect to its core target audience.
This week also saw an unusual move from Sky into physical retail - surprisingly during a time when retail is struggling. Sky will open its first-ever store in Liverpool on 26th October.
Ahead of the festive season, The New York Times has published a useful article that looks at the different Virtual Reality headsets available on the market, all of which provide a distraction from actual reality!
Until next week!
Travel restrictions lead to harp handover on Wicklow-Dublin border
We have a lovely piece of video storytelling from The Irish Times.
Harp maker Kevin Harrington from Roundwood recently traveled over the mountains to the Wicklow-Dublin border for a socially distanced handover of a new harp to 10-year-old Muireann Ní Mhuirthile from Dublin.
Enjoy your Friday by listening to the beautiful performance by Muireann.
