Live Opera & Concert Broadcasts

Bring Your Performance to the Audience of the Future.

Modern audiences aren’t bound to the confines of the Concert Hall – so why should your performance be any different? Combine our Audio and Video Production teams with our Remote Livestreaming Capabilities, and expand the reach of your work beyond your wildest dreams.

A Multi-Camera Live-Streaming System, With Cinematic Production Values.

Our video production service offerings speak for themselves – Canon Cinema-Grade cameras, Full-HD capture capabilities, cinema-style camera support equipment, a state-of-the-art editing suite with stills, interstitials, and more. 

Using the the same camera equipment, and paired with Blackmagic Designs’s latest camera switching and Teradek’s bonded encoding tehnology, we can create a fully-produced livestream of your performance. If you’re looking to include pre-recorded video, still image slides, and keys/overlays as a part of your Live-Streamed Event, you’ve come to the right place.

Live-Stream With the Highest Audio Quality Possible.

All Audio in your stream is recorded, processed, and mixed through our Avid Venue preamp system and subsequently captured in Pro Tools, before being merged with the program video feed of your broadcast.  Simply put – the audio quality in your live-stream will be second-to-none, and will be captured in multi-track format for re-mixing and re-mastering post-broadcast.

A Fully Editable Archival Copy of Your Livestream.

Thanks to the ingenuity of our engineering team, we can not only provide you with an instant hard copy of your broadcast – we can also return to your concert in post production, color-grade your footage, and change our camera angle choices. This degree of flexibility leaves Valhalla Media a cut above the competition.

           Valhalla Media’s Creativity, Delivered to Any Video Platform.

Our Live-Streaming/Broadcast delivery system was not only built with redundancy but also diversity in mind. Whether you’re looking to send your stream to your company’s private streaming service, Facebook Live or your YouTube channel, our encoding equipment will have your video signal reliably delivered to your audiences at home.

Setting the Stage for the 21st Century.

The challenges that artists and producers face in these unprecedented times are daunting. We have committed our resources to completely re-think and re-envision how live performances can take place while theaters are closed to patrons. After much research, planning, and development – we are pleased to reveal our revolutionary new platform for the Classical Music World –

Valhalla Media Live

Review: Chicago Opera Theater's "Taking Up Serpents"

“The filming was helmed by Jan Thompson and colleagues at Valhalla Media, and rendered with skill and imagination. While still a recorded stage performance, the camera was always where it needed to be with the singers, the separated (or separately filmed) trio was smoothly integrated, and fades and brief but artful montages (including with a live snake) avoided visual monotony.”

--Lawrence Johnson, Chicago Classical Review

Review: Chicago Opera Theater's "Taking Up Serpents"

 “COT’s filmed production was rather astonishingly crafted from a single performance captured live on the stage of Chicago’s Studebaker Theatre by Valhalla Media, working in tandem with Dye as stage director. Six cameras were employed to create a visual pastiche that cleverly combined superimposed imagery and split screen techniques with the powerful frisson of live theatre.”

— Mark Thomas Ketterson, Opera News

Review: Chicago Opera Theater's "La hija de Rappaccini"

 “COT's livestream of the performance was an impressive feat, particularly as the crew had to set up after the museum's five o'clock closing for a 7:30 curtain .... the performance was captured with crisp clarity by Valhalla Media.”

-- Mark Thomas Ketterson, Opera News

Daniel Catán’s music soars in COT’s “Rappaccini” premiere

 “COT’s production went off without a hitch Saturday night—a remarkable achievement considering the ever-present technological pitfalls as well as the logistical complexities of a live opera relay from a museum space. Kudos to stage director Crystal Manich for natural movements, technical director Joseph Staffa for seamless transitions between different museum areas, and the entire video production team at Valhalla Media.”

-- Lawrence Johnson, Chicago Classical Review

The Virtues of Virtual: Chicago Opera Theater’s Digital Season

 “One of the most impressive virtual presentations I’ve seen lately was Chicago Opera Theater’s production of “Taking Up Serpents” by composer Kamala Sankaram and librettist Jerre Dye. The production was recorded at the Studebaker Theater in a single take. The production was a collaboration with the appropriately named company Valhalla Media, and the result is visually appealing but also impressively musical.”

-- Seth Boustead, New City Music

Review: Chicago Opera Theater's "The Transformation of Jane Doe"

 “Rather than prerecord the performance, then edit it, COT opted to stream the production live from the Studebaker Theater, on South Michigan Avenue. This was a risk, considering that it involved multiple voices, a small instrumental ensemble and rolling subtitles that tracked the opera’s progress. It all proceeded quite smoothly...there’s something about a live event that raises the intensity level of everyone’s work, and that fervor was unmistakable in this 90-minute presentation.”

-- Howard Reich, Chicago Tribune

Review: Chicago Opera Theater's "La Hija de Rappaccini"

 “In such a reverberant venue, one might fear for the sound turning to mud, but the sound engineers have done an excellent job in avoiding this. The broadcast sound quality is exceptionally clear”

-- David Darlin, Bachtrack

Review: Chicago Opera Theater's "The Puppy Episode"

 “The performance was captured by Valhalla Media with visual clarity and excellent audio.”

-- Mark Thomas Ketterson, Opera News
