Galleon Productions are an experienced Manchester video production company established since 2003, and as such, we have an unparalleled history of capturing a once-in-a-lifetime event; be it a conference, sporting event or gala dinner, or award show. Our first live stream was the Royal Event in 2009 streaming kbps to the intranet of Government Emergency Responders so they could enjoy a Royal visit without leaving their desks.
With our history and confidence in filming live events, we have embraced the opportunity Live Streaming brings, allowing people all over the world to participate without leaving the comfort of their home. Companies and organisations have grasped the advantages of live streaming. Live streaming is all about community, it makes customers and employees feel included in your brand. It also encourages social engagement leading to “likes” and comments giving you an opportunity to cross-promote and interact with an audience you wouldn’t normally have the chance to connect to.
Advantages of Live Streaming
- Live streaming grows your audience as a live streaming event gives access to people who wouldn’t have otherwise participated.
- Live streaming reduces costs across the board. You can use live streaming as part of your training programs to train employees or customers so everyone receives the same training and information at the same time. This mitigates other costs like accommodation or travel. As the event can be saved after it’s streamed, it also means it can be referred to again when needed in the future.
- The money saved in streaming means you can spend money elsewhere in promoting your products, growing your company, or promoting the event itself.
- Whether it’s employees or customers, people like to be heard. The interactive nature of live events gives a platform for both you and your audience, making them feel a valued part of your organisation or brand.

Live Stream To The Interrotron From Anywhere… Worldwide
One of our most popular pieces of kit is our interrotron that allows an interviewer to chat, eye-to-eye to their contributor through a camera on an autocue. Using this same principle the camera streams its image, not from a different part of the studio, but from a location anywhere in the world. This means if you’re interviewee is based in Manchester and you’re in Mumbai you can still interview them as you would if you were in the studio with them.
As travel costs increase and TV production budgets are squeezed tighter and tighter we are pleased to offer this solution to the budget conscious producer. Ready to save money? Give us a call today and find out more about our live streaming services.
