From complete video and sound design, to rigging and facilitating the structural and technical needs of all scenic elements, to everything in between. We take an immersive and hands-on approach to the design process. We also appreciate playing specific roles in a production that has their own designated designers for the various production disciplines.

We have built longstanding relationships with a variety of reputable vendors throughout the industry. Additionally, our own inventory of audio/video equipment gives us the ability to create custom equipment packages unique to each production. Our vendor relationships that we have maintained throughout the years in conjunction with the ability to draw from our own inventory when needed allow us to efficiently execute all of our services while meeting the logistical goals of our clients and adhering to their budget.
More Than Meets The Eye
Although show management, technical design, and equipment solutions are our core services, we do not limit ourselves to what we can and cannot do and welcome the challenge of being tasked with something new.
Because of this, we are able to provide our clients with the option to make one payment, to one vendor, capable of organizing, facilitating, technically supporting and executing their project, from conception through execution and delivery.
We cherish our relationships and are always willing to help or clients get the job done right while making the process easy on them. TVTech is as full service as you need us to be and are willing and able to provide our clients with the option to make one payment, to one vendor. We are capable of organizing, facilitating, technically supporting and executing your project, from conception through execution and delivery.
In February 2020, TVT was brought in by Park Pictures to tech manage the first ever dramatic play performed at Madison Square Garden. To Kill a Mockingbird was performed by the Broadway cast for 18,000 New York City students in what was reviewed as massive success. We were tasked with managing the multi-cam live cut for iMag along with the overall capture and delivery for post.
Although we consider ourselves camera agnostic, we are proud to include the fact that we used our custom Blackmagic Ursa Mini camera package on such a high profile shoot. The Washington Post also wrote,
“Though critics were asked not to review the event, I can’t imagine anyone would mind if I noted the extraordinary technical care that was taken to give the students an entirely “legit” experience. The amplification and camera work — with the performance projected onto four giant video screens — were superior. Sorkin’s script was performed in its entirety, scathing epithets and all.”
It was truly an awesome experience being included on this production for many reasons, and a big shout out to everyone on the crew that made it happen. Finally, TVT covered trucking and logistics for the camera and terminal package, pre-production, on-site management, as well as union payroll for our crew.
TVT was brought on by our friends at Contrast Films and VEVO to manage the overall capture of The Chainsmokers World War Joy Tour at Denver’s Pepsi Arena. This project turned into a 23 camera build with 13 of those being tied into a control room for monitoring and a line-cut. We used 13x Arri Alexa Mini’s with full cinema buildups in a variety of ways.
We integrated 2x tower cams, 1x cable cam spanned across the arena, 8x wireless cameras, and 1x hard cam near front of house. We were also tasked with providing intercom to cover the breadth of the arena along with tie-ing into the tour system. Being able to communicate with the tour was imperative to allow onstage operators to avoid all of the pyro and lasers. TVT was also responsible for all technical pre-production, equipment logistics, and on-site management.
In January 2020, TVT was brought on by Hudson Gray and NBCU to manage the investors meeting and strategy launch of NBCU’s new streaming network “Peacock”. TVT was responsible all logistics, trucking, drafting, payroll, tech management, and production management.
NBC wanted to start the launch with a bang so we built the entire event into legendary studio 8H at NBC Studios. 8H is the studio that Saturday Night Live has been shot in since the first episode aired in 1975.
Also, last but most certainly not least, we were also tasked with building the surprise giant peacock in Rock Plaza over the course of multiple nights to coincide with the announcement of the new streaming network.
