Patented compression technology brings LIVE performances in real time to event ticketholders.
WOODLAND HILLS, Calif., June 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ – Over one thousand fans enjoyed the 2013 Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival in a way they never experienced before, as ChirpVision delivered three channels of live video of music performances with HD audio directly to the fans’ smartphones in real time. Over 2400 people downloaded ChirpVision’s App on iPhone and Android over the 4-day festival.
Festival goers were able to watch great performances on their smartphones while waiting for another act to start, getting food, recharging in the shade, or just hanging out. The ChirpVision app downloaded in less then a minute and then wow, three stages came alive in the palm of their hand.
A Chirp WiFi Zone was created at the “That” tent where fans took advantage of the live ChirpVision broadcast experience. People were rockin’ out watching and listening to The XX, Jack Johnson, ZZ Top and Passion Pit while they waited for acts to come on stage. During a rainstorm, fans also took the opportunity to hang out in the ChirpZone to watch live performances from multiple Bonnaroo stages while staying dry.
“ChirpVision technology takes the fan experience to a whole new level as ChirpVision became an immersive extension of Bonnaroo. By allowing fans to enjoy interactive features they have come to expect with todays mobile technology while never missing the action around the festival,” said ChirpVision co-founder Robert Bianchi.
