ss-evergig
Nearly two-thirds of adults in the U.S. now use smartphones, many of those users are relying on their devices to capturing images and videos during important events. Evergig is a targeted application takes full advantages of the videos that people take at concerts. The web-based platform mixes user-generated media together to create multi-angle, immersive concert videos synced with HD audio.

Evergig currently has more than 1 million concert videos in its database, and that number is growing every day. To take advantage of the service, type in the name of the artist you want to watch, or browse through Evergig’s catalog. When you find what you’re looking for, click on the video of a specific concert to watch it in your browser. If the concert you’re searching for hasn’t been generated yet, then you can press the + icon and add your name. Evergig encourages you to “follow” artists, and it sends you updates whenever new content is posted to the app.

Although Evergig is primarily a service for avid music fans and concertgoers, the platform can also be used as a marketing tool for musicians. Musicians can embed a customizable Evergig widget on their websites or Facebook pages, encouraging fans to submit footage from their shows. The final footage produced by these submitted videos is “automixed” using Evergig’s patented technology, and it’s made available to the musician for posting on his or her website within a matter of hours.
