Live Stream Production

What is Live Streaming?
Absolute Live Productions (ALP) is a live stream production resource for Ad Agencies, PR Firms, Brands, Professional Sports Promoters, Educational Facilities, and Event Coordinators.

Since 2009, we have helped dozens of companies, events and brands deliver broadcast-quality live streams. We have experience using a variety of video-sharing and social media platforms and creating private and pay per view portals. ALP specializes in remote outdoor location productions and complex event spaces. We regularly fly our production team and equipment across North America. We have coordinated and produced live-streams from the Caribbean, Hawaii, Asia, and Europe, even a rainforest in Puerto Rico. See our showcase page for some of our clients, projects and live stream examples.

Project Planning & Integration

ALP offers professional broadcast and live event teams and facilities. We are ready to work with you whatever your campaign objectives or production needs. Live streaming offers many practical solutions to separation by geographic distance to the action. Broadcasts can be viewed by a small private group or shown publicly to a global audience.

As one of our core services, we aim to simplify the process of live streaming. There are many options to consider when producing and encoding a professional multi-camera live stream & webcast. Why not benefit from our experience? When ALP becomes part of your campaign, we integrate with your team through the entire pre-production, production & post-production process.

Production Crew

ALP has a roster of seasoned live production broadcast professionals, support staff and on-camera talent. Our crew members are located throughout the United States & Canada. We can supply crew for live stream productions, live events, video production, feature films and commercials. ALP takes care of all the details, paperwork and legal compliance, to deliver a customized staffing solution for your project.

Production Equipment

In addition to cameras, multi-camera switchers, Jimmy Jibs, Steadicams and encoders, ALP can handle most AV requirements. For example, we provide IMAG, sound reinforcement, videography, LED walls & lighting.

Our sister company Absolute Rentals has been supplying production equipment packages to the Hollywood film and television industry for over 25 years.

Social Media

Our production workflow integrates real-time user comments. We understand the many technical aspects of social media platforms. For example, a 9×16 aspect ratio is important for streaming content to smartphone users. So we use UHD cameras to frame the shot. We work with social media platforms API to deliver enhanced features. Also, we assist with social media promotion and marketing campaigns.

Service Area

Although ALP is based in Los Angeles, many of our clients and staff are spread throughout the United States & Canada. We even have a presence in Japan.

We specialize in remote fly packs systems and often travel both domestically and internationally. In the past 10 years, we have produced live streams in New York, San Francisco, Wyoming, Montreal, Miami, Las Vegas, San Diego, Portland, Hawaii and Acapulco to name a few.

Talk Show – Skype in Celebrities, Fans & Experts

Live Stream with Skype TalkShow
Live Stream with Skype guest and NewTek TalkShow
With our fleet of NewTek TalkShow units, you will never be without an appropriate guest again. If your guest has internet we can create a professional two-way communication that will rival anything on professional television. It is easy to connect globally with remote integration of hosts, speakers, and live shots. Even home-based guests can watch your entire broadcast through their own Skype computer and then begin their own contribution when their on-screen tally light glows red.

A producer’s audio side-chain allows private direct communication with the guest. In the rare event that the guest’s internet falls below the required bandwidth during the live stream, the NewTek TalkShow automatically switches the guest’s image to a pre ranged still image, allowing the audio to continue seamlessly. As a result, you don’t have to worry about that odd and embarrassing Skype freeze image. With ALP and the NewTek TalkShow, the possibilities are endless.

Live Stream & Webcast Platforms

We can live-stream multi-camera switched content to multiple platforms. Most commonly, we use Facebook, Instagram, Twitch, Youtube as well as both private and public streams on company websites. Unique to Absolute is our ability to restart or delay individual live streams per platform independently of one another if required during the live production or broadcast.

Live Stream & Webcast Technology

Production equipment technology has evolved both in manufacture and sophistication.  This now allows HD, even UHD production and live-stream transmission within very reasonable budgets.

Getting hooked up to a reliable Internet data feed can be challenging.  But with our Cellular Bonding solutions, multiple cell phone signals are combined, with any available ethernet or Wi-Fi connections to create a reliable connection suitable for HD video streams.

Live Stream & Webcast Productions

It has never been more realistic for any person, group, company, collective body to come together to produce high-quality visual media content and connect with a global audience.

There are so many niche markets out there waiting to be developed; so many opportunities to capture your share of a globally appreciative audience.

Live Graphics

With live streaming tending to parallel what we expect from network television and professional sports broadcasts, the need for an integrated graphics solution is a critical part of many projects.

When ALP is hired to produce the entire live stream or just the graphic elements, our first step is to understand the needs of the project. So we work through the details to answer the critical questions. Are we are designing the entire graphics package from scratch? Can we take existing graphics and modify them for a specific desired result? Should we create a playout of a complete pre-rendered graphics package?

There are many systems on the market today. All provide a wide range of delivering graphics. Some live streaming switching systems offer an onboard graphics option, however, typically these switcher add-ons are on the simpler side of the scale. However, ALP can provide the robust flexibility that a professional project requires. Our operators have experience with the Ross Expression, ChyronHego, NewTek’s LiveGraphics as well as our custom-designed graphics servers. We have provided graphics systems and operators for such shows as Rocket League, HearthStone & Clash Royal.
