This video was shot during the VEGAS VIDEO NETWORK’s One-Year Anniversary party, celebrated on October 2nd, 2011. It shows some behind-the-scenes video of the building of the studio, plus a conversation about why the VEGAS VIDEO NETWORK was launched.
As among the top tourist destination in the world, and with over 68.6 million Vegas-related queries a month on Google*, the thirst for Las Vegas content is unmatched. But with that high level of interest comes three problems –
- Discovery — Video content is all over the place and difficult to locate.
- Quality — Besides a variety of technical issues, content is key. Just because you have a camera and can point it at yourself doesn’t mean you have anything to say.
- Relevancy/Timeliness — We’ve all discovered content during a search whose ‘use-by’ date had expired.
This is a problem we solve.VEGAS VIDEO NETWORK®, LLC is the first and only LIVE, online broadcasting and media network that specializes in insider news and expert views about Las Vegas. For free. From experts. It’s as easy as watching television. We’re found at: http://VegasVideoNetwork.com.
Instead of the typical types of videos you see coming out of Las Vegas (here’s a hint–that beautiful woman with the tasty martini in that perfectly-lit bar with the dog at her feet isn’t going to be there when you arrive at that same bar. Oh, and the dog won’t be there either.), we develop and produce all-original programming that is predicated on input and participation from our fan base. We are especially close to our worldwide audience because we focus on two key principles — approachability and authenticity.
As a result, we built the VEGAS VIDEO NETWORK to end the struggle of finding Vegas-related video that is centrally located, professionally-produced, timely and relevant. The VEGAS VIDEO NETWORK delivers a unique behind-the-curtain look at Las Vegas that is predicated upon three key principles:
- An easy-to-use website.
- The sophistication and LIVE aspects of Broadcast TV combined with live, in the moment interaction with our audience.
- Las Vegas experts who promote the city and are actively engaged with their viewers.
We have produced well over 700 live streaming video broadcasts to a world-wide audience, both from our studios near the Las Vegas Strip and from a variety of remote locations, including the Fremont Street Experience, Golden Nugget, Four Queens, Golden Gate, Fashion Show (TopShop), KSHP, and Stratosphere. In additional to producing all the live shows on VVN, we also produce shows (LIVE and post-produced) for a variety of other companies (large and small) as well.
