Chris Holmes, co-founder of Zut video production company, has launched a specialist live streaming agency called Virtuopo.

Zut Co-Founder Launches Live Streaming Agency

"Virtuopo is launching at a time when businesses are demanding a more sophisticated approach to virtual events with higher production values, greater interactive elements and richer content."
Chris Holmes

Delivering professional broadcast quality webinars, virtual events and social media live streams, Virtuopo combines high end technical event production with digital event management.


The agency launches in response to the rapid growth of virtual events, accelerated by a year of Covid restrictions. Connecting businesses with audiences around the globe, Virtuopo is a hub for professional live streaming, which provides everything from large-scale virtual conferences and online events to virtual award ceremonies and online training academies.


Holmes said: “Virtuopo is launching at a time when businesses are demanding a more sophisticated approach to virtual events with higher production values, greater interactive elements and richer content. 


“At the beginning of the pandemic, businesses were forced to pivot scheduled conferences and events online almost overnight. After a year of restrictions, online audiences are at the heart of the planning process and businesses are really starting to see the value of virtual events, which can often cost considerably less than in-person events, reaching a much wider audience.  


“Covid has changed the way we all do business and virtual events are most definitely here to stay. While they will never completely replace in-person events, we are already preparing for the new hybrid model, which will bring both formats together once the restrictions are eased.


“Live video is no longer a novelty but an essential communications tool and we are looking forward to establishing Virtuopo as a hub for professional live streaming, virtual event management and technical event delivery.”


Holmes, who left Zut in 2020 after 12 years, has worked with clients such as JCB, Nokia, Talk Talk, Nestle, New Balance, River Island, Dr Oetker, Social Chain and global law firm network, Interlaw.
