POBIT Live Broadcasts direct from Salisbury Arts Centre
Salisbury Arts Centre is delighted to have received funding from the People’s Postcode Lottery and the Co-op Local Community Fund to support the streaming of live lunch events at the Arts Centre. The funding will allow the venue to film and broadcast these concerts to people who can access the Salisbury Arts Centre website anywhere in the world.
This pioneering technology will be used for the first time on Saturday 9 September from 12noon to 2pm (with a lunch interval) for the live lunch performance by Jon Walsh blues guitarist.
Paula Redway, Salisbury Arts Centre Director, says:
“Salisbury Arts Centre prides itself on being accessible to the whole community, however we recognise that sometimes it isn’t possible for people to come to us due to a lack of money or transport, being in hospital or a residential home, needing a babysitter, or being an unpaid carer. Our ability to live stream events will revolutionise the way in which we can reach audiences; from those who would find it difficult to attend in person, to those who are simply too far away geographically. We are hugely excited to be one of the first theatres in the country to be able to offer live streaming and look forward to expanding our offer in the future.”
We have chosen to work with Anglo-Danish technology company, Audux, and are deploying a system called POBIT to do the actual live streaming.
Carl Walker, MD of Audux UK said:
“Our POBIT systems have been used to easily live stream many different arts events, from rock concerts to Shakespeare plays and opera, in incredible quality to online audiences all over the world. We are thrilled to be working with Salisbury Arts Centre, and are excited they are forging a trail with live streaming that other regional theatres are sure to follow.”
The live broadcast will be free of charge and those interested in watching it should click on the link for the Jon Walsh live lunch performance on the venue’s website.
The live broadcast couldn’t have been simpler. So easy to reach a wider audience. People from across the globe had an opportunity to listen to our music making in the wilds of Shropshire.

POBIT performed flawlessly – it was fantastic. For our Spring Festival, Pobit offered our visitors that little bit more. It meant they were able to enjoy the live bands whilst munching on some food and enjoying the exhibitors within the Castle.

Quality is so important to us as a professional touring opera company, and we were amazed by the quality of our POBIT live broadcast, especially the sound.

Simple, Reliable. It did everything we needed. The POBIT enabled us to do a professional live broadcast easily and with great sound and picture quality.
As a rural theatre company the POBIT enabled us to reach a much wider global audience.

Audux’ POBIT technology has been very important in launching AGFs new digital strategy. Their live internet broadcasting system has made it possible for viewers to choose which camera angle they watch, with AGF providing several on-site cameras, thus enhancing the viewing experience.
With a number of high profile keynote presentations streamed live, the POBIT enabled UBM to reach people who couldn’t attend the Customer Tech Series, as well as offering exhibition guests the chance to watch sold out sessions on their mobile devices in and around the venue. We were very impressed with the quality and it’s ease of use.
