The AMS Studios Advantage

Pre-Production
Powerhouse

Our thorough pre-production planning is the cornerstone of every successful live event. We collaborate with you to understand your vision, refine the broadcast flow, and ensure every detail is planned to perfection.

REHEARSAL MAKES PERFECT

We believe that practice makes perfect. By building time into the schedule for rehearsals, it allows you, your talent and our video production team to get comfortable with the technical setup and run-of-show. This crucial part of the process ensures that any kinks and bugs get worked out before we’re on the air.

POST-PRODUCTION EXPERTISE

Our services extend beyond the live broadcast itself. Our post-production team can edit your live footage, add graphics and branding elements, and create high-quality recordings for future use.

Our Live Production Process

A Live & Broadcast Process that Guarantees Smooth Sailing.

AMS Studios’ live production process excels with our seamless integration of cutting-edge technology and unparalleled attention to detail.
