Can a platform like dancetrippin survive in the US?

Let me hear from some of you tech heads.

There is an internal (discussion only) on whether or not it would be a viable move to bring the platform to the USA. As you are well aware of other platforms such as Mixmag and boiler room, DT is the head honcho since the early 00s. However, their platform requires more man power and logistics than 2-3 fixed camera views.

So, what do you think? Does it make sense; would there have to be another appeal for it to work?

Again, it's just an internal discussion and I have no more info at this time.

I don't think it would work on a regular basis. Clubs here aren't really into the streaming thing. They'd need another element to survive.

How do they survive right now in the first place?

If by survive you just mean continue to lose tons of money, sure they can do that here :D

Someone please clue me in.

Good question- I am not all into the business. I just received word through conversation with one of the directors. They are essentially to Europe, what P Diddy's Revolt is to the US, but with only mainly streaming videos in a few television markets.

pretty sure Be-at.tv dominates this space for underground/techno music.

I'm surprised that any of those websites have survived over there. I love the live/ on demand streaming but it hasn't grabbed over here so much.

The discussion has come up before on here. While the technology is pretty amazing, it's a hard sell to the clubs.

• Locals are less likely to come out when they can just stream at home, crank up their own sound system, and drink their own liquor and do whatever other things they want...

• Liability for the club. The cameras nowadays can push 4K streams, enough to see damn near everything, even in crappy lighting. You'll see a guy in a corner doing a bump. While once or twice isn't a big deal, enough instances of it will draw law enforcement's attention.

• Random bullshit like music licensing and DJs unwilling to stream.

• Infrastructure investment for the club. While the streaming companies will provide their kit on a lease/demo basis, the club still has to beef up their IT infrastructure to handle the stream. Most consumer & "business" connection options suck on the upload side. Plus, very few clubs outside of the Vegas monsters have a competent networking guy on staff or on call to handle the setup.

From what clubs would they stream? Miami is not the only place where the club scene is on the decline.

None. No club will do full-time streaming.

Solution in search of a problem. Not a viable business model.
