Live Event

The staple of the production services that Creative Video has offered to its clients for over 25 years is live event production.  Whether it’s one-camera coverage of a board meeting, or a five-camera switch with projection at the Kennedy Center, CVW is there to provide our clients with top-notch, second to none production services.


Creative Video offers four different switcher packages that are sure to meet the production needs of any client.  For graphic based productions, the Screen Pro II HD switcher is the perfect solution.  This VGA based HD switcher can accept a native 1024x768 resolution, meaning none of your power point slides or other computer graphics need to be scaled.  This keeps all of the images looking as pristine on our projection screens as they do on the computer monitor in your office.  The Screen Pro can also output multiple formats at the same time, making it the perfect solution for a more complex show.  For multi-camera productions, Creative Video offers the Broadcast Pix SDI based video switcher.  This standard definition switcher features 8 SDI inputs, and comes complete with two built in Digital Data Recorders for instantaneous video playback.   The switcher also boasts its own graphics platform for live ID graphics, and a still store library for full screen graphics.  CVW’s third switcher, the Panasonic HMX100 is a more portable HDSDI based switcher.  The 8 input switcher is perfect for compact multi-camera setups.  It can be setup in a matter of minutes, ready to combine all of your sources into a seamless show.  The Panasonic MX70 is the standard definition version of the HMX100.  The SDI based switcher features all of the same effects as its big brother, just in a standard definition format.  And finally, CVW offers the Panasonic AV-HS450N 16 input HDSDI switcher.  This broadcast switcher offers clients every option imaginable for large scale productions that require all the bells and whistles of a broadcast switcher.  Whether combining 16 inputs, cutting in video rolls and lower third graphics, or doing picture-in-picture effects, this switcher will be sure to help transform your event into the eye catching production that you’ve always imagined.


In addition to switchers, Creative Video possesses a large inventory of professional cameras, capable of filling any production need.  The Hitachi z-series cameras are CCU controlled, 16x9 or 4x3 aspect ratio interchangeable, and perfect for mult-camera switches.  They run off of multi-core cabling, which provides the ability to run an SDI video signal up to 800 feet.  The Panasonic HPX500, and HVX200 are P2 series HD cameras that allow lossless HD video recording.  The Sony DSR500W is a DVCAM based camera perfect for ENG productions.


While we specialize in video production, Creative Video has also branched out to live event audio production in recent years.  Our Electro Voice and JBL sound systems can compete with any around.  We have provided audio coverage for events both large and small, ranging from 100 to 3,500 attendees.

Creative Video has continued to meet its client’s needs with the right equipment and services at the right time.  We are continually updating our equipment inventory to take advantage of the latest technology.  If you have any questions on what type of services that Creative Video can provide to help transform your next live event, please contact a representative.
