Live Streaming Experts

Our Advanced Media team has been specializing in Live Streaming and remotely communicating your event and messaging virtually for over 10 yrs.  Our seasoned professionals are happy to help you navigate the world of live streaming and virtual event production.

Our Capabilities

Nothing is more instant than a live streaming experience. And we’ve been doing this for a long time. Spot partners with industry-leading broadcast facilities and highly reliable content delivery networks to constantly refine our live streaming and other advanced media offerings. (AKA, we have smart people moving 1s and 0s.) This, along with our focus on broadcast quality streaming and our preference for redundancies, provides Spot with multiple options and approaches to every streaming project.

Spot also owns and operates our own dual-path KU Band uplink truck that is utilized for streaming projects as well as traditional broadcast transmission.

Do you have a webinar, live event, or corporate streaming project that you would like to partner with us on? Or do you simply have an idea that you would like to flush out a little more? We are always happy to consult and see how we can help.

Our People

The people here at Spot are the magic sauce. Our Spotties go above and beyond, doing whatever it takes to make a project successful – all while keeping their smiles and fun-loving attitudes. (You might even get a snort out of Sandy.) We are a talented group of weirdos – in a good way!

Our Culture

Spot’s vibe is laid back, but we take our client work seriously. Our culture strikes a hard-to-put-your-finger-on balance of fun and professionalism. One minute we’re cracking jokes, the next we’re filming a CEO – and occasionally we’re cracking jokes with the CEO! We know the rules, and we know how and when to break them. That’s because we care. We are a business that is proud to always consider people first and foremost and do (or at least attempt to do!) what’s right. Bottom line, Spot is a special place with a culture you just have to experience for yourself – BBQ included.

  • Our Story

    We call ourselves the Spotties. We aren’t the new kids on the block when it comes to video production. Brothers Lynn and Rick Hensel came out of the television news business and started Spot more than 15 years ago. We’ve been growing, expanding, and making an impact for our clients ever since.

    Now 20+ Spotties strong, there’s one thing that hasn’t changed along the way: Our commitment to delivering the full “Spot Experience” to our clients. WHAT we do – the creativity, quality, execution of our digital content – is important to us. And, HOW we do it – fun, down to earth, resourceful – is what will always set us apart.

  • Our Space

    Our 20,000 square foot facility has been completely renovated. The entire building's interior design is created to offer interesting backgrounds and visual environments, no matter which way we point the camera. It offers:

    • Green screen
    • Cyc wall
    • Daylight studio – with a large, flexible, open area
    • Two full kitchens – designed specifically with filming needs in mind
    • Private edit suites – three of them!
    • Sound studio – capable of capturing everything from podcasts to full band set ups
    • Oversize garage doors – allowing easy access for cars, set pieces, animals, grip trucks, and equipment

    If you’re in the neighborhood (or even want to make a special trip!) we invite you to swing by to check out the space, ride a scooter, and grab some BBQ.

  • Our Food

    When we’re not at work making content, we’re still out there making. You can usually find a Spottie or two at any given time around a grill cooking up good food, making a nice drink, having fun, and – of course – capturing it all with photos and videos. Sometimes we grill for local, charitable events; sometimes we grill for neighborhood competitions; and sometimes we grill just because. We’re known for our Friday afternoon BBQs, Sunday Fundays, and homemade Trouble Rub.
