Bulldog DM powers Coca-Cola’s live stream of Vive Latino music festival: article

Over the two days of Vive Latino, Bulldog DM’s team — which has provided turnkey live streaming solutions for Bonnaroo, Outside Lands, the Snickers 36-hour live stream Superbowl commercial and the American Express Unstaged concert series, to name a few — operates a production that is robust enough to handle the expected million views a day and approximately 70 hours of live streaming HD video.

Vive Latino fans are also able to engage on social media, and Bulldog DM connects the live streaming content to Vive Latino’s YouTube profile, where viewers can engage with each other, commenting and sharing their fan affinity for the performers. Upon the completion of the festival, Bulldog delivers the wrap and engagement report to Coke’s marketing team to assess engagement and sentiment.

“This engagement that Ernesto and his team have developed over the years, to us, is the shining beacon across the market,” said John Petrocelli, Bulldog DM’s CEO and founder. Referring to breadth of Coca-Cola’s live streaming offering, “To really reach, engage, and connect with consumers in an innovative way, that’s a pretty stunning content play and content offering. In addition, the fans get a full schedule gadget that tells you what artists are playing on what video channel and at what time. There’s a full social stream to encourage participation and collaboration in addition to a photo wall.”

When it comes to tracking the millions of views and levels of engagement, “What we’re able to do is measure all of that video viewing activity as well as what happens across those platforms, the photo wall as well as the social streams,” Petrocelli explained. “That data is given back to Ernesto and the team, and the results are pretty impressive.”
