(n+1) designstudio, a creative services firm providing motion graphic design and conceptual branding solutions for the sports and entertainment industries, has partnered with Revolt TV to provide a unique solution featuring real-time social media interaction. This feature was launched on “Revolt Live,” the network’s flagship news program that debuted 1/27.
Based in Hollywood, Revolt TV launched in October on Comcast Xfinity and Time Warner Cable.
The social media technology allows fans to directly engage in real-time with hosts Sibley and DJ Damage to share their thoughts about music news and culture, extending the in-studio conversation to at-home viewers.
(n+1) designstudio’s unique display of custom graphics and social media integration is the cornerstone of Revolt TV’s mission, described by Revolt Chairman Sean “Diddy” Combs as “the first channel created entirely from the ground up in social media era.”
Optimized in a real-time, rendering environment, the new augmented reality elements, sometimes appearing as a floating social conversation, give the audience an opportunity to interact with artists and hosts using live tweets, Facebook posts, Instagram images and live polling data.
SMT, the parent company of (n+1) designstudio, provides Revolt’s custom-configured GOTO Board, the large interactive touchscreen display system used by the network’s hosts to show videos and display the constant stream of social media posts. The data is powered by SMT’s signature Data Matrix Switchboard (DMX), which absorbs, collates and synchronizes multiple feeds from Facebook, Twitter and Instagram into its social media publisher. The DMX allows Revolt editors to easily streamline content searches for on-screen presentation, created by (n+1) designstudio.
“Revolt and (n+1) designstudio are setting a new standard for music news and music culture by building a social media platform for artists to reach audiences in a completely unique way on ‘REVOLT Live’,” said Andy Schuon, Revolt president and co-founder. “This authentic dialogue between fans and our special guests will break the standard of traditional news shows, and will allow Revolt to connect all platforms to our television channel at the speed of social media.”
