Welcome to shiro
Your Partner for Media, Event and e-Learning-Productions

It's often not until you actually start working together that you see whether you'll get excellent results or not. Before that, it's the company philosophy at best which can convince you.

shiro describes our philosophy; it’s a Japanese term that stands for white, clarity and perfection.

Audio-visual media are ideal for internal and external communication.

Using event media, your events and functions acquire their own special character.
They provide visual highlights, and, thanks to media-driven documentation, your event achieves much wider coverage.

Company media such as image videos give businesses a more tangible, emotional character.
What's more, our productions help support your sales activities.

Whatever the challenge, we'll help you find the right video format for your needs.

Company media

Our clients benefit from our broad portfolio of company media. The image video gives your company a face and makes it more tangible.

Sales organizations use customer reference videos to illustrate successful projects.

Training and product videos are effective tools for delivering information and knowledge to a distributed audience.

Generally speaking, these products include the following services:

  • Pre-production – Concept, storyboard, script, planning, organization
  • Production – Directing, arrangement of film set, shooting, hosting actors
  • Postproduction – Video editing, 3D animation, music selection or composition, voice-overs

Event media

Event media include video productions which are directly connected to a particular event. This can be a video trailer shown to set the stage, an overnight video for the second day, or the closing video at the end of an event.

Naturally, we also supply a highlight video for each participant, to make your event a truly memorable occasion.

Our scope of services includes:

  • Pre-production – Concept, material and staff provisioning, logistics
  • Production – Highlight video / interview shooting, session recording, overnight production
  • Post-production – Video editing, 3-D animation, music selection


Naturally, it is not always possible for all participants to be in the same place at the same time. Webcasts serve to link various venues, enabling global companies to make their conferences and presentations accessible to a global audience.

We let participants actively join in the live discussion, offer a high level of convenience and make the webcast so realistic, you'd think you were actually present.

Our scope of services includes:

  • Preview and analysis of transmission technology
  • Selection of the appropriate transmission method
  • Transmission and recording of the presentation
  • Reproduction of the presentation on CD/DVD or posting on the Internet


We specialize in events for up to 300 participants.

Our scope includes a wide range of services to help you make your event a success. Drawing on many years of experience in event management, we are able to put your ideas into practice almost anywhere.

Whether it’s stage design, event signage or the provisioning of the right equipment for your event – you can count on our support and commitment.

Show & event

We provide a full range of services, ranging from the complete logistics package to show management.

These include:

  • Location – from finding a suitable location to conclusion of the contract
  • Signage – from analysis through design and printing to installation
  • Staging – from concept to set-up
  • Equipment (audio, lighting, display) – from the original idea to planning and set-up
  • Production stage management – from sound and lighting direction to synchronization of projection
  • Catering – from the choice of menu to cocktails
  • Artists' repertoire – from finding and selecting artists to hosting artists on location


Conferences play an important role in public relations. Whether for the press or for analysts, we help you create the perfect showcase for your company.

Our services include:

  • Invitation management – from e-invitations to conventional paper mailings
  • Transfer – from taxi to shuttle bus
  • Location – from the selection of hotels to more unconventional venues
  • Signage – from needs analysis through design and printing to installation
  • Equipment (sound, lighting, projection) – from the original idea through to planning and production
  • Staging – from concept to set-up
  • Production stage management – from supporting speakers with presentations to sound and lighting direction


RePlay merges video with additional content. A typical RePlay application is event documentation, i.e. recording a speaker and their presentation. A specially-programmed interface enables the synchronous display of video and presentation content (e.g. PowerPoint slides or animations).

Users are free to navigate within the presentation, enabling them to find content quickly and easily. RePlay can be made available on CD or also as an online application.

Our RePlay services include:

  • Recording of speakers and their presentation
  • Post-production with editing and synchronization
  • Programming in the standard RePlay user interface

e-Learning & Content Development

Using web-based trainings, you can get your message across, irrespective of time and place. You can reduce your training costs, make knowledge transfer more effective and improve access to information.

We create multimedia and interactive training modules for your target group.

Our eLearning services include:

  • Concept
  • Editorial work
  • Production of rich media elements
  • Programming
  • Localization/translation


e-Learning addresses your target audience directly and personally. Your content is delivered via multimedia – in an intuitive, comprehensive and catchy way. Interactive tasks and quizzes stimulate the participant’s ambition, prompting them to test their newly acquired knowledge in a fun way. Participants can easily track their progress. Modules may be repeated as required to deepen the participant’s understanding of the content.

e-Learning also helps you get your message across in an international arena. Transcripts in multiple languages can be displayed in synch with the original soundtrack.

Content Development

We will create your e-Learning content according to your specifications and focused on your target audience. We combine in-depth industry knowledge with a fair dose of creativity to get topics (including dry subject matter!) across to participants in a vivid and intuitive way.

  • Storyboard
