The EBU partners with Grabyo to drive digital engagement for the 2021 Eurovision Song Contest

We went behind the scenes with the Professional Squash Association to find out how PSA’s digital team delivers its multi-format, multi-platform video strategy using Grabyo.

Building on a long-term partnership, Grabyo increased its support for the EBU at the 2021 event by extending its services to all EBU Members, Europe’s leading public service broadcasters, from across the 39 participating nations.

Grabyo’s technology was integral for the digital output for the show, expanding the reach of content shared to Eurovision Song Contest’s official digital channels.

The production team, based on-site in Rotterdam, collaborated in real-time to produce live broadcasts and highlights for distribution to social accounts and broadcast partners.

Working with Grabyo has enabled us to ensure that exciting content from this year’s Eurovision Song Contest could be shared across all our digital platforms and just as importantly with EBU Members and partners. Grabyo’s technology very much helped us expand our reach, delivering the content from the event that fans want to see, across the channels they want to use. Social and digital engagement is important to the success and appeal of the Eurovision Song Contest and we’re delighted with the results.”

During the week of the Eurovision Song Contest the EBU streamed the competition to its official YouTube channel, gaining 50.6 million unique viewers across 234 countries and territories, up 28% on 2019.

The EBU also shared key moments from the event through a mixture of live clips and post-show edits on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and TikTok.

The EBU used Grabyo’s cloud infrastructure to set up a centralized platform for EBU Members and partners, including broadcasters and major music labels, to gain remote access to all content produced for the event.

Over 150 crew members from across the EBU partner network were given access to Grabyo to develop localized content for their own specific audience.

The EBU team and partners, with the support of digital agency Scrn, used Grabyo to manage content across the rehearsals, press conferences, Turquoise Carpet event and live shows.
