The Essential Guide to Live Event Production.


Captivate Your Audience, Anywhere: The Essential Guide to Live Event Production with MECS
The world is watching, or rather, wanting to watch. Live events are back in full swing, but not everyone can (or wants to) be there in person. That’s where MECS comes in, your one-stop shop for transforming any event into a captivating live stream experience.

Why live stream with MECS? We’re not just tech gurus, we’re storytellers. We understand the power of live video to engage, inspire, and connect. From intimate corporate meetings to electrifying concerts, we’ve got the experience and expertise to make your event shine online. We’re here to lay out the roadmap to live stream success for you.


Pre-Production: Laying the Foundation

Vision Quest: Before we set up a single camera, let’s dive into what makes your event tick. What’s the core message you want to convey? Is it the passionate pitch of a startup founder, the electrifying energy of a live band, or the insightful discussion of a panel of industry experts? Knowing your “why” helps us tailor the perfect streaming experience that resonates with your audience and achieves your goals.

Venue Checkup: Not all spaces are created equal for live streaming. We’ll visit your chosen venue, assess its acoustics, internet connectivity, and layout. This helps us identify potential challenges like background noise, bandwidth limitations, or awkward sightlines. By understanding the space, we can anticipate and overcome obstacles, ensuring a smooth and professional broadcast.

Gear Guru: From crystal-clear cameras that capture every nuance to professional audio systems that deliver stunning sound, we have a top-notch AV arsenal at our disposal. But it’s not just about having the fanciest toys, it’s about choosing the right tools for the job. We’ll match your budget and event needs to recommend the perfect setup, whether it’s a single-camera wonder or a multi-camera masterpiece. And don’t forget about lighting! We’ll work our magic to banish shadows and create a visually captivating experience.

Platform Playground: Facebook Live, YouTube, Twitch, your own website – the streaming world is your oyster! We’ll guide you through the platform jungle, considering your target audience, desired level of interactivity, and technical requirements. We’ll help you choose the platform that allows you to reach your viewers where they are, maximizing your outreach and engagement.

Remember, pre-production is all about setting the stage for a successful live stream. By understanding your vision, assessing the venue, choosing the right equipment, and selecting the perfect platform, we lay the foundation for a captivating and impactful online experience.


Production: Showtime!

Lights, Camera, Action: This isn’t just a movie catchphrase, it’s the mantra of our skilled technicians. They’re the wizards behind the curtain, meticulously setting up and operating the equipment that brings your event to life online. We don’t just plug and play; we fine-tune cameras for optimal angles, calibrate audio for crystal-clear sound, and master the lighting controls to create a visually stunning experience. Think of them as the invisible orchestra conductors, ensuring every element harmonizes beautifully for flawless visuals and captivating audio that draws your viewers in.

Multi-Camera Magic: Forget static single-shot streams! We unleash the power of multi-camera setups to inject dynamism and professionalism into your live event. Imagine capturing the presenter’s passionate expression in a close-up while simultaneously showcasing their body language with a wider shot. Or switch seamlessly between the speaker and a captivating product demo, adding visual interest and keeping your audience engaged. Our skilled camera operators and live editors work in seamless unison to create a captivating visual narrative that elevates your event beyond a flat single-screen experience.

Live Switching and Graphics: Live streaming isn’t just about capturing what’s happening; it’s about actively telling a story. That’s where live switching and captivating graphics come in. Our tech wizards orchestrate seamless transitions between camera angles, integrate pre-recorded footage or presenter slides for additional context, and overlay dynamic graphics to highlight key points or add playful visuals. Think engaging polls, real-time data visualizations, or even custom animations – the possibilities are endless! This dynamic interplay of live footage and creative elements keeps your audience glued to the screen, actively participating in the unfolding story of your event.

Real-Time Monitoring: We’re not fans of surprises, especially not technical ones. That’s why our eagle-eyed team constantly monitors the stream in real-time, anticipating and resolving any potential hiccups before they become showstoppers. We track audio levels, bandwidth usage, and even social media sentiment to ensure a smooth and uninterrupted viewing experience for your audience. Think of us as the safety net for your live stream, always vigilant and ready to catch any technical wobbles before they send your viewers scrambling for the exit button.

Remember, production is where your event comes alive online. With our skilled technicians, versatile equipment, and creative edge, we transform your physical space into a captivating digital experience that keeps your audience engaged, informed, and entertained. Stay tuned for Part 3, where we’ll explore the magic of post-production and show you how to keep the momentum going even after the curtain falls!


Post-Production: Relive the Good Times

The curtain has closed, but the show doesn’t have to end. Post-production is where we transform your live event into a lasting legacy, extending its reach and impact far beyond the initial broadcast.

Recording and Editing: We’re not just streaming, we’re capturing. Our high-quality video recording ensures you have a pristine digital copy of the entire event, complete with all the energy and excitement. This isn’t just a souvenir; it’s a valuable asset for future promotions, marketing campaigns, or even internal training purposes. Imagine revisiting those impactful presentations, sharing key moments with a wider audience, or even creating “best of” reels to fuel ongoing engagement.

Highlight Reels and Social Media Snippets: The live stream may be over, but the buzz doesn’t have to stop. We craft bite-sized, shareable social media clips that capture the essence of your event and pique the interest of those who missed it. Imagine a captivating montage of presenter insights, audience reactions, or product demonstrations – perfect for igniting curiosity and driving traffic back to your website or future events. Think of these snippets as miniature trailers, whetting the appetite for the full feast waiting for those who dive deeper.

Data Analysis and Reporting: Numbers talk, and in the world of live streaming, they tell a fascinating story. We provide detailed analytics reports that delve into the depths of your audience engagement. Learn how many viewers tuned in, which segments resonated most, and even where they dropped off. This invaluable data helps you refine your future live streaming strategies, tailor content to your audience’s preferences, and track the ROI of your event. Think of it as a digital treasure map, guiding you towards even more successful online ventures.

Remember, post-production isn’t just about wrapping up; it’s about amplifying. By recording, editing, and analyzing your live event, we create lasting value, extend its reach, and provide you with the insights to make your future online endeavors even more captivating. So, the next time you host an event, think beyond the live stream; think about the post-production possibilities that let the replay begin, long after the curtain falls.
