Since the start of lockdown owing to the global Coronavirus pandemic, on-line communication has increased dramatically, particularly via live-streaming as a means to communicate for work, for entertainment purposes or to simply “meet up” in the virtual space. In turn, virtual events such as webinars, conferences, live performances, business meetings and online group chats have become a way of life.
The Johannesburg-based Gearhouse Splitbeam multi-purpose virtual venue offers the space and technical facilities to film, record and stream your art, craft, product or business; all strictly compliant with Covid-19 health and safety regulations. The flexible 7.2m x 6m stage and surrounding backstage areas are ideally suited to live performances by singers, dancers, musicians, bands, comedians and performers starring in theatrical pieces.
The popular wrap-around LED screen wall for branding and imagery or the use of pre-programmed backgrounds is an innovative feature that enhances every virtual event including music videos, culinary demonstrations, exercise classes, webinars, brand promotions, presentations, staff training sessions, lectures and lessons. Open 7 days a week, this virtual space offers competitively priced audio, lighting and video packages including the services of highly skilled technicians and the expertise to provide an all-round one-stop online “broadcast” service. Individual packages are quoted for clients with specific requirements. Additional optional services include high-end post-production, three static full HD camera cinematography for multi-viewing and multi-track audio recording.
“What sets us apart is that we are committed to making working in the virtual space affordable while providing high production quality and professional expertise,” says Managing Director, Alistair Kilbee. The venue has already hosted some impressive events, including live-streamed talk-shows, concerts and conferencing, and recording of theatre productions for this year’s first Virtual National Arts Festival. “Alistair Kilbee and the entire team at Splitbeam are always so fabulous to work with. Their virtual theatre is a fantastic intimate space to be creative, whilst working with a superb team who will always have your best interests at heart. Thank you Splitbeam!” says David Bloch, Creative Director and Show Producer of David Bloch International.
Splitbeam also offers affordable technical support, consultation and equipment rental to home streaming clients helping to raise the production quality of the online content that they share from their home studios. With a little expertise and some basic equipment, Splitbeam can help lift the production level of home streaming and videos produced for Youtube and Zoom, making quality online content.
