We Are Experts In
Full-Service Social Network Streaming
Our team will help you design, develop and employ an unforgettable social media streaming event, with solutions that keep your audience engaged and up-to-date with your products and services. We’ll help you navigate in-depth terms of service for any social network, and set up engagement tools like interactive chats, reactions and feedback.
Platforms include, but not limited to:
Our Live Streaming Process
Together, we determine elements and look of live stream, creating a customized broadcast graphics package which includes lower thirds (name supers), intro and outro full-screen billboards and bugs.
Technical Site Scouting
Our team visits the venue you have chosen to host your event ahead of time to run diagnostics on their Internet and assess its streaming capabilities. If we see an issue, we can provide solutions that can ensure the best transmission of your live stream.
Live Stream Consulting & Platform Choice
Content Delivery Networks (CDNs) have different rules, requirements and pricing. Popular social media sites like Facebook, YouTube and Twitter are free to use but heavily regulated. Private CDNs, like Akamai, Wowza and Amazon Web Services (AWS), give you freedom in your broadcasts but at a cost. We’ll help you make the right choice.
Configuring Your Live Streaming Platform
Whichever CDN you use — whether free or paid — we provide set-up, customization and optimization so your stream runs at peak performance. Your audience is sure to say “wow” when they experience our technically flawless, visually stunning live video delivery.
Live Streaming Delivery
We combine all cameras, audio and graphics together to present your event to your audience, using professional audio-visual gear to produce the sights and sound of your event. We can also integrate third-party apps like PowerPoints and interactive, remote presentations for virtual and hybrid events.
Full Project Management
We work with internal stakeholders, other vendors and venues, to produce the best quality live stream possible. Let us take control and handle the whole production process, acquiring the signals from our cameras and audio equipment. Or, if you already have a video production company, we can receive their AV signal and just handle the streaming process.
Live Streaming Case Studies
Atlanta Mayor – Fireside Chat Live Stream
On a recent project, the city of Atlanta wanted to live stream a fireside chat with the Mayor and recording artist Common at his book signing event. The venue could not give us a dedicated line so we set up internet the day before, with all tests showing a fast and stable connection. We set up a cellular bonded unit as a backup incase the ethernet line signal had problems. Implementing a multi-camera video and audio stream, our team flawlessly delivered a high-quality production broadcast over the city’s CDN and website, as well as social networking sites like Facebook, YouTube and Twitter.

More About The Live Streaming Process
There are two ways we live stream. We can handle the whole production process from acquiring the signals from our cameras and audio equipment or if you already have a video production company, we can receive their video/audio signal and just handle the streaming process.
Depending on the number of camera and audio inputs needed, we utilize professional video switchers like the Roland V-1SDI, 4 channel switcher or the Blackmagic Design ATEM Television Studio 8 channel switcher to bring in the video signals. We combine the video and the audio with either audio from the house venue or we provide sound for the event with microphones and an audio mixer.
We send the mixed program (video, audio, graphics and taped pieces) feed out of the switcher to a hardware encoder or computer encoder with the right amount of bandwidth. The encoder handles the heavy lifting of encoding and pushing the stream signal to the desired CDN for distribution to the viewers. We utilize different CDNs from paid services like Akamai, Wowza and AWS to free social media streaming services like Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and LinkedIn.
Event Internet is a crucial part of the production equation. To be able to send the encoded stream to the CDNs we like to have a Dedicated Ethernet Line (DEL) from the venue so that the signal is fast and stable. If a DEL is not available, we have satellite, point-to-point, WiFi, cellular and bonded solutions to move the stream from your location to the end user.
We record a clean program feed out of the switcher and program feed from the stream encoder. To find out more about our company and team, visit our about us page.
