A series of events spanning four continents marked the ILO’s 100th anniversary: we designed and built a streaming web platform to broadcast live.

About the Project

Our live streaming web platform integrated with 24 production teams around the world to show events in real time to a huge global audience.

A key part of ILO’s 100th anniversary celebrations was a series of events spanning four continents, culminating in a 24-hour livestream, featuring 24 individual productions from 24 locations around the world.

The technology stack for the build featured ReactJS, NodeJSj at the core, delivered using container technology running on cloud-based infrastructure.

The Solution

Highlights of the solution included web push notifications, real-time livestream switching, in-depth analytics and GraphQL based queries on MongoDB data.

Our support included round the clock developer and PM availability during the event itself, involving real-time system monitoring, reporting and full communications with client production teams.

Our team was very honoured to be part of such a fantastic milestone event!

As a long term trusted partner of ILO, Squareball was engaged to provide the definition, design, and delivery of the platform as well as the technical support team during the event and the ongoing support following completion of this milestone and achievement.

Our design process kicked off with a series of workshops between ILO and our creative team in Manchester and we iterated through design cycles, with clickable high fidelity prototypes delivered in each cycle.
