MMC Studios’ Sister-Company Crosscast Streams Talent-Show Finals

On October 27, the finals of new WDR talent show ‘Lokalzeit Secret Star’ were held at the RedSeven studio in Cologne.

On behalf of Redseven Entertainment, Crosscast GmbH, the outside brodcast production arm of MMC Studios, was in charge of the full technical TV-production for the show as well as of the live streaming.

To produce the finals, Crosscast deployed one of its multi-camera fly-pack systems.

The finals streamed live on the ‘Lokalzeit’ website, on all ‘Lokalzeit’ Facebook pages as well as on the Facebook page of pubcaster WDR.

WDR’s local news magazine ‘Lokalzeit’ currently offers eleven different regional programs. All ‘Lokalzeit’ studios participated in the talent show series and had sent candidates from their region into the race for the title ‘Lokalzeit Secret Star 2020‘.

People who would never have dared to go public were given the chance to show their talent. They had been secretly nominated by their neighbors, colleagues, families, and friends.

The best 11 talents competed in the finals. The results were entirely determined by phone and online voting.

Missed the show? No problem. Public broadcaster WDR will air a shortened version of the finals on Friday, October 30, at 9:00 p.m.
