Where we've been &Where we're Going


Live-Online Television, Inc. was founded in December of 2001 as an independent off-shoot of an established event production organization. The new company’s goal was to merge the owner’s broadcast background with existing AV clientele creating a new standard which consistently exceeded client expectations.

The company grew successfully at a modest pace for several years. Weeks prior to the recession in 2008, Live-Online purchased $1M of high definition equipment to become one of the first “lens to lens” providers in the country. Difficult banking situations allowed the company to develop best-practices without influence from competitors.

Live-Online continued to invest in new technology as market opportunities emerged. Additional high definition equipment and LED video displays expanded offerings beyond AV to include live sports and large-scale entertainment. Season-long broadcast contracts and frequent touring events allowed the company to quickly develop a broader market and deeper knowledge base.

In 2018, Live-Online Television rebranded as Encompass Event Group to better reflect the company’s capabilities. The same year, Encompass purchased the audio/lighting/rigging assets of ACA Productions, doubled full-time staffing levels, and introduced the Encompass Training Center with formal curriculums in all disciplines.

Future plans include expanding creative services, aggressive growth of inventory/staff, and a 3x larger facility (with dedicated pre-rigging space) … all in support of our commitment to customer experiences.

My career was launched in high school. A church utilized the school’s event space and, as an active member of the drama department, I became involved in the technical aspect of their services and events.
