GigTV brings a fresh approach to a basic instinct

– the need to learn, share and thrive.

Diverse, accessible events.

We focus on broadcasting events online that will enrich your life, either professionally or personally. Our audience is typically hard working, intelligent and climate friendly.

We believe to change the world you need to be the change you want to see in the world. So we like working with people that want to make a difference.

APNG 2021

We’ve worked on hundreds of events over the last 15 years.

You name it… we’re there bringing you all the action and making it easy for your audience to watch, listen and interact. Over time, you’ll see us add content from various events, and give you the opportunity to contribute your own content.

If you’re planning an event, we’d love to hear from you. In the meantime, relax and enjoy the world of GigTV.

Why GigTV?

Understanding the path to success no matter where you’re up to in the journey requires a technology partner with proven experience. You’ll want to avoid the pitfalls or else your journey will become time consuming and cumbersome.

We make sure educators, subject matter experts and communicators reach the masses in real time with the most inspiring and imaginative uses of streaming media and audience engagement tools you’ll ever see.

Transformation to a flexible work and learning environment has been happening for the last two decades.

It’s not the new normal, it’s just normal.

We support a wide range of industries by supplying your event with automated video capture, video content management, webcasting, streaming, web meeting, audience engagement & interaction and more – all with valuable data tracking tools to enable you to see how effective your communications are, and what people are.

Our event services teams are delivering hundreds of hybrid, virtual and flipped events to audiences around the globe every year.

To make your life simple, we’ve automated a lot of the donkey work to save you time and money.

Remember – putting your event online helps to save the planet by reducing the resources required to share information.
