Chicago Video Production Company Increases Crew and Availability for Web Streaming and Video Production in Wake of Coronavirus


Chicago, IL — Live virtual conferences and video productions are quickly becoming vital for businesses around the world. As governments struggle to contain the spread of novel coronavirus COVID-19, global and local economies have begun to suffer. The trade show and convention sector has been particularly hard hit, as events are canceled out an abundance of caution and businesses clamp down on non-essential travel. As a result, local area production companies are ramping up their web streaming, video conference, and VR presentation capabilities. One such local area production company, Absolute Vision Productions, is already making additional services available to their clients.


Spring and summer are usually among the busiest months for trade shows, conferences, and events across the country. From entertainment-based events to professional trade shows, these gatherings traditionally draw tens of thousands of people from across the globe. Already, several major trade shows have been canceled. Other shows have seen major vendors bow out. But because vendors still want to share their work and connect with customers, video companies have begun offering convention alternatives.


Virtual reality presentations, live video streaming, and virtual conferences have become the go-to solutions for companies looking to get their annual message out to stakeholders and supporters. “We’ve already seen skyrocketing demand for professional multi-camera production crews,” said Mark Smith, owner and founder of Absolute Vision Productions. “Many of these companies still want to put on a highly polished, professional looking presentation. So, you need a production crew, you need a web streaming crew–and, really a web streaming company that understands the challenges.” Smith went on to say that, having worked small businesses and Fortune-100 business, Absolute Vision can create flexible, unique packages for each client’s need.


Absolute Vision Productions has been offering video production and web streaming for years. Absolute Vision’s local Chicago crew have been able to help with a wide variety of productions in the midwest and beyond. As an award-winning production company, Absolute Vision has been able to deliver above and beyond client expectations on project after project. Of course, the environment now is exceptionally challenging. That’s why more companies are falling back on live video streaming and virtual conferences. The technology is tried and tested, especially in the hands of an experienced and local production crew. In some cases, once a trade show is cancelled, a client may want to create a live webcast. In other cases, an on-site video production will be recorded for later publication and distribution.


That gives a big company looking to make a splash in uncertain times a little extra confidence. There’s no doubt that COVID-19 is presenting a wide variety of challenges, the most dire of which tend to be human-focused. But the economic challenges will also have repercussions for people across the globe. In such an uncertain environment, companies are looking for something they can count on–but they aren’t looking to withdraw from the world stage, either. Virtual conferences and video streaming offer the ability to ensure a company still has a presence and is still garnering attention, but not in a way that puts any of its employees in harm’s way.


Over the coming months, it’s likely that more conferences, trade shows, and conventions will be cancelled or postponed. It’s impossible to tell when the coronavirus outbreak will slow down or which region it may impact next. So it’s likely that companies large and small will continue to hedge their bets. That means that video production will likely be in high demand as the novel coronavirus–and the economic impacts of COVID 19–linger.


“We do expect conventions and trade shows and so on to get back to normal eventually,” Smith said. “But until then, we do have the technology and the expertise to make sure companies can continue to have a presence. And we’re increasing our capabilities every day.” Smith mentioned he expects more demand for video conferencing and virtual meetups as the virus lingers. In that case, the right kind of setup–with a multi camera production crew or a location production for corporate communications–is essential. Absolute Vision Productions is an award-winning media company with the knowledge, experience, and technology to help businesses through this rapidly changing media landscape.
