VIRTUAL EVENTS & HYBRID LIVESTREAMS
TRANSITION YOUR PHYSICAL EVENT ONLINE PROFESSIONALLY
PROFESSIONAL VIRTUAL EVENT PRODUCTION
Event professionals worldwide need to convert their physical events into virtual events. We make that transition painless and seamless by helping you rebuild your event using tailored broadcast solutions. Our experienced virtual event producers work alongside you to deliver the event to the standard your audience deserves. Your hosts and presenters don’t need to be in a studio, your offices or even the same location. They don’t need any special equipment either. One-to-one coaching prior to any live or pre-recorded content ensures that everyone sounds and looks their best. The video production for any virtual event should be as be confident and professional as the presenters – we make that happen.
We aquire remote contributor audio & video in a way that suits the contributor. We’re equipped to rebroadcast anything from advanced VT transport to a Zoom call to a simple telephone call. Every aspect of your virtual event is handled by one of our experienced virtual event producers. By the time your event is due to start your contributors and hosts will be well prepared and confident. Need to mix in pre-recorded video, presentation slides or social media comments? All additional content and graphics are prepared in advance by our engineers so you get a polished, professional result that lets hosts focus on presenting rather than running the event.
A virtual event doesn’t have to be restricted to webcam contribution. Lots of workplaces currently have scope to be temporary studios due to more staff working from home and our own studios have robust COV19 policies to allow appropriately socially distanced and safe broadcasts for limited numbers.

* 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.
