Groovy Gecko


In 1999, our founder Craig started Groovy Gecko in one tiny room but with one big idea; that the future of video content was live and online. Craig started the company with Eddie Robins, our much missed Technical Director, to help clients get the best out of this new format.

Almost 20 years later, with over 45 years’ experience between our two directors Jake and Craig, we are established within the live streaming industry as the go-to company for some of the biggest ad agencies, brands and social media platforms in the world. We work from our headquarters in London and on location to stream great content to users across the globe from around the world while constantly trying to evolve what the medium can do.

We can offer an end to end solution where we handle everything from connectivity to camera crews or deliver a simple encode and partial page build service. Groovy Gecko keep things simple and won’t blind you with science of the tech, unless you want all the details. We base all of our projects on our own tried and tested software and have a comprehensive process of risk management.

Honesty is at the core of our company and that means analysing the risks involved in your stream, the number of people who may or may not watch and being truthful about our technical team’s range of black t-shirts. We make working together an easy and enjoyable experience and that is why we have so many clients who have been with us for over a decade.
