Last night, October 6, at 7:30pm PT / 10:30pm ET, the stars of the new movie ‘Law Abiding Citizen‘ arrived for the film’s red carpet premiere at Grauman’s Chinese Theater in Hollywood, and Livestream was there to stream the entire event with Livepack.
The hugely successful broadcast featured stars such as Jamie Foxx and Gerard Butler who came out in support of the new movie, and were interviewed by the Livestream team. Using Livepack, Livestream was able to bring the red carpet premiere to hundreds of people around the world who could not be there in person in a high quality format.

Invisible Children, the group that organized the massive “Rescue” protest of Joseph Kony’s child soldiers back in April, went live again today promoting yet another organized effort to rescue the Ugandan soldiers.
They are raising awareness for the “How it Ends” lobby in Washington D.C. that is coming up on June 22nd and 23rd. The goal is to help raise money for the cause as well as bring it some much needed national attention. “How It Ends” is organized by Invisible Children, Enough and Resolve Uganda which are three great nonprofits, and it has already garnered attention from MSNBC and other mainstream media outlets!
