A MATTER OF RECORD

If an amazing performance occurs and no one documents it, did it really happen?

Trees falling in the woods aside, in the modern day, you NEED archival material. Your supporters want to look back on the work that you’ve done, and grant-writers thrive on being able to review clips of past projects. With the right equipment and our artistic expertise, we can capture your work in a way that celebrates your artistry and makes it accessible to everyone–your own future self included. Give yourself a premium archive experience by booking Transcend Streaming to immortalize your work.

CINEMA QUALITY

Professional equipment in professional hands.

With Transcend, you’re not just getting experts who have the skills and experience–you’re getting experts who have the best tools to document your work in the best possible format. We’ve done the deep dives into film lenses, wireless microphones, streaming interfaces, and all the hundreds of little moving parts that it takes to broadcast what you’ve put together. Investing in A/V professionals who know the ins-and-outs of their equipment means that we’ve already got “the big picture” in mind.

AUDIO MATTERS

Good video is only half the picture.

Have you struggled with understanding what’s happening in a movie because the dialogue is muddy and not loud enough? Us too. That’s why we work hard to make sure you can clearly hear and understand everything that happens during a recording. Audio is half the experience when you’re watching a video, and quality sound can make-or-break any media project. We’ve taken many approaches to this, whether it’s pulling audio from an in-house mixer, planting sneaky microphones inside props on a stage, clipping multiple lavalier microphones on a speaker, or dangling a near-invisible microphone from the rafters. And because we’re approaching this as a collective whole, you know that the final product will be in sync.

PROCESS

They've got this.

That’s what we want you to feel during every part of our process. Our team brings our arts background to this bespoke process; we know that you’ll do your best work when you’re well taken care of. We chat with you about your goals, the needs of your project, any challenges that might come up, and then make it happen.

Top to Bottom

Most of our projects go something like this:

  • We have an initial FREE consultation where we go over your projects and its specific needs
  • We generate a modular proposal that accomplishes all of your goals (and gives you some flexibility in how it’s executed)
  • Once you’ve accepted the proposal, we’ll put together a contract that clearly lists tasks, areas of responsibility, and a timeline
  • As the date of your project approaches, we’ll provide updates and ask you for anything else we need (“Has the venue provided you with the WiFi password yet?”)
  • An amazing “day-of!” Whether you’re working with us to edit a sizzle reel, simulcasting a conference for the world, or recording the finest live performance of your life, we want to take all that stress away and make sure you can focus your energy on what really matters.
  • Afterwards, we provide you with more archival material and analytics than you can shake a stick at (or fill up a hard drive with).

We meet you where you’re at. 

If you’re technically-minded and want to drill into the details of video delivery codecs, we’re happy to nerd out about bitrates. If you want to point us at a problem and not hear from us again until we’ve got a solution (or three), we’ll be back soon. 

Don’t just feel prepared, be prepared

We’ll meet with you as needed to chat through the project, our progress, and any changing needs. There’s nothing like a quick production meeting to put your mind at ease. Or if you’re more of a “this could have been an email” person (we get it), just shoot us a quick request for an update and you’ll know where we’re at.

PRICING

Options for Every Budget

Everyone deserves a bespoke experience, including your billing department. We’ll work with you to develop a clear budget and scope of responsibilities, so everyone can focus on doing their best work (and not worry about the numbers).

Modular Proposals:

Our most popular pricing model by far. Based on your specific needs, we put together a proposal that includes various options you can mix-and-match. Know that you want our crew, but want to play around with using two cameras or three? Thinking about bumping up to a truly luxurious audio quality? Need to run the plan by the rest of your team first to figure out where you want to invest? Our modular proposals give you all the flexibility you could ever want.

Pre-Determined Budget

If you’ve got a dollar amount in mind, we’ll talk with you about what we can accomplish on that budget (and where to get the most bang-for-your-buck). We custom tailor all of our plans to your project’s priorities, so the most attention is paid to the most important areas.

Pay-As-You-Go:

We’re flexible! Maybe you aren’t sure of the scope of your project yet, or you want to be able to adjust the goals as your needs develop. We’re happy to enter into a partnership that can grow and change alongside your project.

Flexible Invoices

We invoice you automatically over time so you don’t get hit with a huge bill upfront. Plus, we’re a local small business–you won’t be dealing with a faceless billing department, you’re dealing directly with the business owners.

Clear Contracts

Our contracts contain clear charts of responsibility for all assets from pre-process to wrap-up. There’s never any last-minute scramble to find the right music (while the audience is beating down the door), because everyone involved knows who’s bringing what to the table.

We believe in transparency and equity. You’ll always know exactly what you’re getting, line item by line item. Give yourself the peace of mind that comes with hiring a dream team that delivers exactly the experience you’ve been waiting for.

ACCESSIBLE BY DEFAULT

Interpretation, Captioning, ASL, and More

Accessibility is a core value here at Transcend Streaming. During the early pandemic, we championed the use of human-crafted captions during live performances–not just glitchy robo-captions, and not just for pre-recorded content. Everyone should be able to fully engage with the content, no matter where they’re coming from. Now, we’ve carried that principle forward with focuses on multi-language interpretation, captioning, and American Sign Language.

 

Give your audience the choice to listen to a presentation in English or in Spanish. Help them hear your message clearly by letting them toggle subtitles on and off (and we don’t mean AI-generated “close enough” language).

Do all of that, and more, with Transcend Streaming.

happy life is a play about the domestic efficiency of stacking the living on top of the dead; about jargon and vomit and the bureaucracy of second chances. What oozes out, when there’s no more room?
