Behind the Scenes: Live Reveal of Great American Rail-Trail


D S Simon Media recently helped Rails-to-Trails Conservancy celebrate the 150th Anniversary of the Transcontinental Railroad using new technology to broadcast simultaneous events in multiple locations to create a live social media video feed.

 

Rails-to-Trails, an organization that develops easily accessible multipurpose public paths created from former railroad corridors, came with a challenge to use live video on social media to celebrate the reveal of the Great American Rail-Trail’s preferred route as part of the anniversary celebration. The event was broadcast live from Washington, DC, Columbus, Ohio, Three Forks, MT and near Mt. Rainer in Washington State.

 

With new wireless technology, D S Simon Media was able to take in the signals from each location where the control room team created a compelling online experience for their audience. It was part press conference, part public event, with key moments captured from each of the four cities to produce a historic video program where Rails-to-Trails could engage directly with all of their key constituents via the power of social media.
