Virtual Event Production
Event professionals worldwide are converting their physical events into virtual events.
Kinura makes that transition painless and seamless with our virtual event production services.
Broadcast quality video production for virtual and hybrid events
Kinura was a virtual event production company before COVID 19. We’ve been providing stand-out experiences for online audiences since 2007. We work closely with leading event production companies to make sure the virtual and hybrid events match the physical event as closely as possible.
Your space – your studio
Hybrid event production need a studio for the hosts/presenters. These can be any suitable space large enough to accommodate cameras, lights and sound production equipment. Luckily, lots of workplaces currently have scope to be temporary studios due to more staff working from home. Additionally, our own studios have robust COV19 policies to allow appropriately socially distanced and safe broadcasts for limited numbers. Kinura installs temporary studio facilities into underused offices with setups ranging from a single camera to a full multi-camera onsite production unit.
Professional Remote Contribution
Remote contributors are people that deliver audio and or video as part of your virtual event production from a remote location. You’ve seen reporters on news programs talking to camera from somewhere that’s not the studio – that’s remote contribution. For corporate events it’s usually on a webcam. However, we’ve all seen how terrible webcams can be. Kinura provides one-to-one coaching prior to any live or pre-recorded contribution to ensure that everyone sounds and looks their best. We also provide flyaway webcam kits to presenters that need them. We acquire remote contributor audio & video for live event productions in a way that suits the them. We’re equipped to rebroadcast anything from advanced VT transport to a Zoom call, even a simple telephone call.
On-site or 100% remote production
Every production is different. We provide scalable portable production units ranging from a single camera to a 3+ camera shoot with expert technicians and camera crew. Prior to any event we asses any available in-room AV you might have and integrate it to reduce the cost of the virtual or hybrid event production.
Once the virtual event is over our post event work is just beginning, making sure your on demand content is available as quickly as possible to your online audience. Fast on-demand editing and upload to OVP cloud hosting services is all included.
Virtual events only happen once. That’s why we always provide bonded LTE backup internet connections and properly investigate any existing infrastructure used as part of a broadcast. Additionally, we always duplicate all equipment for a broadcast and provide primary and secondary encoding solutions if supported by the virtual event platform being used.
Delivering internal comms events or hosting a hybrid event is often challenging due to I.T. restrictions and legacy AV installations. We work closely with our clients’ internal I.T. teams to ensure broadcasts are reliable, accessible and don’t interfere with normal business operations.
Our starting point is the overall quality of the video production and sound. Additionally, there no limit to the kind of content you can include in your virtual event production. Graphics, comments, social or intranet posts, tweets, pre-recorded video are all standard options make sure you you provide a great event experience for on and off-line attendees.
We work with all the major live virtual event platforms and can help you improve production quality. If you’re just starting out we’re happy to advise (for free) which is the best option for you and help you create accessible, engaging content your audience can access at work, home or on the move.
What is the difference between a hybrid and virtual event?
What is a virtual event?
A virtual event is a long-form group of content like a conference or a TV news broadcast where all of the contributors and hosts are taking part from remote locations. There are usually interaction tools like Q&A and polling plus there’s usually a networking element that’s provided by a virtual event platform. Hopin and Swapcard are currently popular virtual event platforms.
What is a hybrid event?
A hybrid event is similar to a virtual event but the hosts are based in a studio and ‘bring’ the remote contributors into the studio. Again, hybrid events usually make use of virtual events platforms to allow the audience to engage with the hosts, contributors and each other.
The studio can be any suitable space to accommodate cameras, lights and sound equipment and the associated production equipment.
We provide virtual & hybrid event production on these platforms
and any of the others!

* Where is the event taking place?
We work in all regions in the UK and continental Europe or you can book one of our studios.
* When is the broadcast?
Usually, we’d need at least two week’s notice so we can adequately prepare for a live stream. However, certain times of the year are busier than others so don’t leave it too late!
* Do you have an AV company looking after in-room AV/sound?
If you’re planning on using a hired venue for a webcast or live stream then sound (microphones & in-room PA) will be provided. However, if you’re planning using one of your own locations we’ll need to allow for sound technicians.
* What platform would you like broadcast on (via social media or private/securely)?
We can distribute your stream to multiple social media platforms and your website simultaneously. Or, if you’re planning an internal comms broadcast or any other live stream that contains sensitive information, we can make it secure for you.
If you have a contract with a webinar provider we’re happy to plug our production in your account.
