Webcasts – Can be live or pre-recorded
StreamGate can pre-record webcasts that your audience can view on demand later. We have already discussed the benefits of how live webcasting can help a business and its organization better improve, but what about the uses of a pre recorded webcast?
I can use YouTube for a to pre record videos
Yes you can, but with YouTube you face many problems and limitations. For one you don’t actually own the content, any video that is uploaded to YouTube becomes their property, and at their own digression they can delete or suspend your account and there’s nothing you can do about it.
Unlike a pre recorded webcast using StreamGate, YouTube will display adverts on your page which will tarnish the professionalism and integrity of both the video and your business. Most YouTube accounts will only allow you to record a 10 minute video and offer limited functionality, which doesn’t give businesses much practical use for it.
Are you better pre recorded?
Certain artists perform their live events using pre-recorded vocals and they do this because it improves the sound and there is no chance of them making a mistake that could compromise the event. If you are not a professional speaker or suffer stage fright doing live webcasts, opting for a pre recorded webcast may just be the solution you’re in need of. You can rehearse and test your script as many times as you like before we hit the record button.
