The VCC solution fades into the background during production, keeping the cast’s focus on content and not technology. The result is a uniquely immersive experience that allows for the extended conversation needed to allow the most riveting content to emerge naturallySharp Entertainment
We had the challenge of our cast being across the globe and the VCC provided us with a great solution. The reliability of the VCC enables cast members to be fully engaged without the technical disruptions that are so common when video calls appear on TV. We were impressed by the VCC’s quality and professionalismTLC
Working with The VCC has been incredibly easy. They guided us through their innovative process with complete transparency and provided many creative options for us to choose from. The VCC somehow makes it all look easy and the system’s reliability ensures that we look great.Discovery Communications
The VCC solution delivers, it makes viewers part of the show, with the unique opportunity to see themselves on air, have intimate interactions with their favorite stars, share their enthusiasm with their own social media circles, and do this all while providing our team with the editorial control needed to bring this live segment to air with confidenceDiscovery Communications

A central database keeps track of the callers and provides information to the production team before the callers reach air. Ratings systems permit high-quality repeat callers, reporters or designated experts to be prioritized.
The editorial screening system ensures that uncleared callers can never be seen or heard on air. We generally screen for the 3 C’s (Content, Coherence and Clothing). The same system permits anyone on the team to rapidly remove a caller who may not be behaving according to program requirements.
All of the systems can be connected to existing control room facilities, or set up so that the Host can control the show from their own station. The automation tools permit the host to keep their eye on the camera and their brain on the content, while the details are handled by a state-of-the-art contextually aware “brain” to keep the program visually interesting.
The host can be located in studio, or remoted to anywhere with a good quality IP connection, even their own home.
The Video Call Center has a suite of tools to enable live Video Callers to be received, editorially screened and prepared for air. The tools can be used individually or as a group to create a complete end-to-end workflow.
All the tools work with any Video-Over-IP Chat software such as FaceTime, Skype, Gruveo, Messenger, ooVoo, Viber and many others, so that the Producer may choose the ones that work best for the show.
