Virgin Hyperloop Passenger Test Streamed Live with BlueJeans Events
Virgin Hyperloop was thrilled to debut their first manned test of their revolutionary hyperloop transportation system. The problem was, COVID-19 prevented them from being able to hold an in-person celebration safely. Rather than miss a great opportunity to generate employee excitement and media interest, Virgin Hyperloop got creative with BlueJeans. They developed a drive-in theater style experience so employees and other stakeholders could still be together and experience the moment.
To manage the livestream, they turned to the BlueJeans Events platform. Using several fixed and mobile cameras for filming, Virgin Hyperloop’s IT team used BlueJeans Events’ video pinning and layout features to preconfigure the live test. This allowed the team to switch seamlessly between video feed displays during the video broadcast.
BlueJeans Events makes it simple for companies to run engaging, immersive virtual or hybrid events. The platform is so easy to use that Virgin Hyperloop was able to integrate in-house technologies and create a high-quality production with complete control of their own look and feel to showcase this innovation. With BlueJeans technical assistance, it went off without a hitch.
