Vertigo Arrives at the Democratic National Convention!
Over the last couple of months, Vertigo has been building the High Definition, Silverlight-driven video website for the Democratic National Convention. 6 members of our team arrived in Denver yesterday, and we'll be supporting the site throughout the convention, which runs from Monday August 25 to Thursday August 28.
This is an exciting project for Vertigo, as we're breaking new ground. This is one of the biggest events to have ever invested this heavily in live, high definition quality coverage. The site allows Video on Demand as well as a full schedule, and will be available during and after the event. The site will really begin to "light up" this week as the live coverage begins, and a slew of high definition VODs begin to appear in our video gallery. The site can be viewed here:
We got the opportunity to tour the convention floor at the Pepsi center last night, and I was very impressed by the visual design of the stage, as well as all the effort being put into the event.
Check out the pictures from our trip here.
Some screenshots from the app appear below. Note that the second image is actually a screenshot – not a picture we took!
