Live Streaming Video | Equipment Rentals & Services

Production Equipment RentalsAbsolute Rentals, along with our production partner Absolute Live Productions, has been creating Tricaster live streams since just about the inception of the web-based live streaming craze. The key to our success is having the experience and understanding and ability to understand and foresee what the client requires far ahead of the project itself.

When you call to order equipment from Absolute Rentals, you are not just speaking to a customer service rep or a rental agent. You are often speaking directly to a technical Director, Producer, video utility, or coordinator with years of onset experience behind them.

At AR, we never see a rental call as pushing gear across a counter. It is our job to understand not just what equipment you were directly calling about but how you intend to use it and who works now with your production team to identify the best practices and any concerns for integrating each piece of gear being ordered. Through these conversations, the Absolute Rentals team has been able to problem-solve and assist in the design of production days and weeks ahead of the show itself. This highly detailed “The show must go on!” philosophy has ensured that our projects at Absolute Live productions run with a hard-to-match professional proficiency and that our rental clients’ shows work seamlessly.

 Same-day shipping services throughout the United States. 

Although Absolute Rentals’ home office is located in Burbank, California, we have shipped our Live Streaming video equipment worldwide. Traditionally we can deliver equipment overnight in many cases. We can ship with same-day service with one of our Counter to counter airline partners. Additionally, there are many cities and countries where Absolute Rentals and Absolute Live Productions can assist you with a local live-stream crewProduction Equipment Rentals.
