On October 12th the annual Televizier Ring Gala - the Dutch equivalent of the Emmy’s - took place in Amsterdam’s Royal Theater Carré. Each year, a winner is chosen to take home the Televizier Ring, the most prestigious prize in the Dutch television world.
During AVROTROS’ live show, viewers at home were able to cast their vote for one of three television shows. This year Zondag met Lubach, Beste Zangers, and Expeditie Robinson were nominated.
Angry Bytes made sure all second screen votes were validated, merged and processed in real-time, making it possible to give the audience live updates on the voting results during the show. We included some nifty options in the voting tool to allow sharing real-time voting activity all over The Netherlands, enabling live updates on votes coming in including where they came from.
After a nerve-wracking first part of the show during which winners of other prizes were announced, it was time for the big reveal who won the top prize. All votes were collected, and over 2 million people watched the satirical news show Zondag met Lubach take home the ring!
Our voting tool is perfectly usable for live broadcasting shows, but you can make any live event that bit more interesting by including your audience and allowing them to vote with or against each other!
