The concept of live streaming has greatly impacted small, mid-sized to large companies for a variety of their business endeavours, for instance launching a new product, live telecasting events, marriages and so on. The accessibility to cheaper and faster internet coupled with support from various free social media platforms like YouTube, Twitter, Facebook & others have given the right momentum for the live streaming industry to prosper. But what good is a live stream without a great audio visual to show! Accord Equips (Estd. 1998) offers these two prime services live streaming and video production under one roof.

In an exclusive interaction with siliconindia, Tejash Shah (Managing Director, Accord Equips) has elucidated the USP of the firm. Here are the excerpts!

Walk us through the distinctive facets of Accord Equips.
Live Streaming & Video Production inhouse: Today, most technology companies hold strong expertise in Live Streaming but tend to outsource Video Production Services. We understand that these two verticals are interlinked. While we already stand-out as reputed specialists in video production over the last two decades and in live streaming since three years. In fact, ours is probably the only company that has inhouse live streaming and video production services. Given that we have end to end solutions inhouse, we take complete responsibility of projects from planning to delivery.

Starting with one live streaming project every months, we now do two projects every week. Our clients include a diverse range of users Like reputed Law firm Khaitan & Co, to banks like Cosmos Bank, Exim bank, to Media publication giants like Bennett Colman & Haymarket Sac and many more

Some large corporate want to run their inhouse internet channels. It is a challenge for them to manage the equipment and crew required to
run the channel.The corporate’s expertise lies in running their business and not this area of work. They realize that it makes economical and practical sense to outsource this requirement to a company like ours.

We thrive on challenges and like the idea of creating new markets and solutions in the Media and Entertainment industry

Live Streaming on the go : We can handle professional live streaming on the go ie on streets, in a moving car etc. One would think that anyone could do that through mobile phones too. When we mention professional live streaming on the go, we mean using multiple professional cameras with a live video mixer and perfect audio.

We can also live stream VR videos. This is again a niche area specialized by few Companies.

In the nutshell,Accord Equips is a company built on Innovation. We have many firsts to our credit. We thrive on challenges and like the idea of creating new markets and solutions in the Media and Entertainment industry.

When someone is in the lookout to rent a camera or lens in Mumbai or Pune, Accord Equips is on top of their mind. How have you achieved this expertise in the field of equipment rentals?
The primary difference probably between us and many other rental houses could be that we are a production house too.

Zero tolerance to deficiency in equipment and service! Chalta hai is not accepted
