Award winning Irish technology start up FanFootage, has agreed a deal with Irish rock band Kodaline to collect and manage all fan-shot videos at their performance in Dublin this weekend, the largest headline gig of their career to date.
FanFootage is a unique technology platform with smartphone applications for Android and Apple devices that allows fans to film, capture their experience and be part of the musician's next live video.
Partnering with FanFootage allows musicians and artists to capture and share unique videos created by their fans at concerts. All videos, credited to the fan who produced it, are available to view for free on FanFootage.com.
FanFootage uses their own proprietary fast and accurate audio matching algorithms to sort and automatically sync the fan-shot video with the artist-approved live audio from the concert, producing the highest quality edited video.
The Irish company, established by Cathal Furey in 2011 and based in Dublin, has worked with artists and musicians such as Bon Jovi, Hozier, Delorentos and The Magic Numbers.
In addition to music events, the company has also worked with Bing, The Web Summit and this weekend will partner with The AIB Club Championship on Monday to manage all football supporters video coverage, paving the way for further development in the sporting world.
Commenting today in advance of the Kodaline performance this weekend, CEO Cathal Furey said: 'Our video platform allows artists and musicians to turn the whole crowd at a concert into their own video crew. It means artists can compile video recordings of their concert, from every angle possible, into one place. We solve the fan filming problem and it connects bands with their fans through creative technology."
"Our users have really responded to our product and the idea that they can help document a bands performance and that their footage could be used and credited in the official live video by the artist. As an Irish company, working with talented musicians like Kodaline and some of the world's biggest names is an exciting prospect and we're looking forward to developing and growing our technology and company further."
