Master Stress-Free Live Streaming

You need captivating content to communicate with your audience. Live streamed programmes can reach, engage and entice audiences even more than video on demand. The liveness and spontaneity gets the audience more emotionally involved and can increase ROI.

We take the stress out of using live content for audience engagement

Engage Your Audience with Confidence Now

A compelling programme with high production values, live streamed properly can engage your audience and motivate them to take action. But a poor quality production, badly streamed, full of mistakes with no contingency plans, let alone robust problem solving capability, can damage your brand and is worse than doing nothing at all.

Formats, equipment, platforms, connectivity — let alone permissions and rights — there are so many variables in producing live programmes. Trying to make decisions can become overwhelming. So, how do you master stress-free live streaming?

But don’t worry, we can help because we have over 24 years of experience pioneering the use of digital media and producing hundreds of programmes.

Our clients say

Helen Urquhart, Head of Events, National Piping Centre

Working with Inner Ear feels like an extension of our own team, helping make every event we work on as good as it can be and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them.

Jim Wolff, Digital Campaign Manager, Malt Whiskies, Diageo

Inner Ear have been an exceptional team to work with, not only in the quality of their productions, but in their relentless pursuit of finding the best way to deliver a project — in spite of throwing countless challenges at them in remote Scottish locations.

Janet West, Head of PR, Cowal Highland Gathering

With event costs rising we looked at how we could monetise this year’s livestream and took a hybrid approach, where we offered two and a half days of viewing free and put the World Highland Dancing Finals behind a paywall. This was the perfect solution for us for this year and Inner Ear was able to provide this service professionally and without question. As well as providing Cowal Gathering with a first-class service, which frees up my time to concentrate on other aspects of the event, the team is helpful, knowledgeable and great fun.

Comprehensive Training

In this one-to-one training and consultancy package, tailored to your objectives, I can explain what you need to know in plain language, so we can squash the overwhelm, allay your fears, establish goals, devise a strategy and formulate a straightforward action plan for your live production so you know exactly what you need to do next.

  2. A half day strategic planning and problem-solving consultation session.
  3. A pre-production plan for you to work through.
  4. A follow-up meeting to review progress.
