Sterling launch their
new Studio website

Manchester based Sterling Event Group have launched their new Sterling Studio website to showcase their range of solutions for the organisers of virtual events.

In the temporary absence of live events, Manchester based audio-visual production company Sterling Event Group have continued to invest in virtual technologies and have launched a new website dedicated to its virtual event services.

Launching originally in March 2020, Sterling Studio has now been expanded to include a multitude of studio spaces and virtual event services. Proving a popular choice for the organisers of virtual events, the 5 physical studio spaces, along with 3 purpose-built fully remote Virtual Control Centres (whereby events can be managed 100% remotely) are currently in high-demand.

“We’re excited for the year ahead and whilst we hope to see the start of the return of live events in the near future, there will still be a place for virtual events. We are frequently assisting our clients with global communications, in recent months we have live streamed to audiences in 78 countries. For certain types of events there is a huge advantage in virtual, from an efficiency and environmental perspective, that’s why we believe virtual events are here to stay and will feature in the programme of events for many organisations. Furthermore, adding a virtual aspect to a live event could be used to significantly extend the reach.” Richard Bowden, Founder and MD of Sterling Event Group.

Sterling Studios have also expanded from their Manchester Airport HQ and are now operating Hybrid Studios at a number of popular venues within the Greater Manchester area, each with a unique offering.

Further info on the Studios and other services to enhance virtual events, can be found on our new dedicated site – or click here.


Welcome to Sterling Studio: The show can go on

With the ever-changing climate and increasing uncertainty as to when we might be able to resume ‘business as usual’ we are all having to adjust the ways we work to organise and execute live events. Whether it be a company ‘meeting’ or a full-scale event with key note speakers; now more than ever we are seeking out alternative ways to deliver events without compromising on quality, creativity and those wow moments.

Whilst the rise in use of Webex and Zoom has enabled us to continue to conduct meetings and smaller scale presentations from the comfort of our own homes, we understand that this may not quite achieve the audience engagement and production quality as desired.

With this in mind we have drawn upon our 20 years of expertise and knowledge and carefully curated a portfolio of new virtual event solutions to ensure that the show can still go on. Our star of the show is a project we started before lockdown where we combined our very best technology with our industry expertise to craft a high spec studio space. We are now very proud and excited to open the doors and welcome you all to Sterling Studio!

“Our offering includes three levels of studio so should suit most requirements and budgets and there are many ways in which we can customise to meet a client’s requirement. This combined with our customisable web platforms allows us to provide a really strong, comprehensive virtual offering and we are really excited to be supporting a range of events in the coming months” Richard Bowden, Founder and MD.

Our most comprehensive offering, The Sterling Studio+ is kitted out with an impressive 16m x 3m Absen Polaris 2.5mm LED screen as a curved digital backdrop; allowing for unique and engaging combinations of live streaming, creative graphics and pre-recorded content simultaneously. The setup is further enhanced by the Panasonic 65” presenter comfort monitors, Panasonic PTZ remote cameras, a sophisticated Barco E2 screen management system, Yamaha QL1 digital mixer and lighting delivered via the Avolites Tiger Touch II.

The Studios can be customized and designed to suit any event; with the spaces large enough to host awards ceremonies, festivals and key note speakers, to company conferences and charity nights.

Furthermore, not only have we been busy creating Sterling Studio, but we have also been consolidating our virtual event solutions to ensure you can continue to run your events (albeit virtually) with as much style and creativity as your audience would demand from any live event. We can assist in virtual event production from alternative venues, provide support and guidance on how to infuse ingenuity and engagement into your virtual event and even add new dimensions that may not have been previously considered. We understand that adding anything from live streaming and additional content creation to audience engagement tools and pre-recorded content to your event can dramatically improve the engagement and audience experience, and so are poised and ready to help.

We also appreciate that during these times health, safety and wellbeing are of utmost importance and so we have taken all appropriate safety measures to ensure that hosting an event at Sterling Studio does not compromise this.
