How can a webcast benefit your next event?

Currently, many companies are using webcasting technology to increase the results of their key events, messages, and meetings. The main advantage of webcasting is that it helps create a good communication relationship between them and their audience. The webcast can help you pass your message to specific listeners both in a convenient and private way. If, for example, you want to pass on a new corporate or procedure specifically only to your employees, webcasting can help you pass on this information to the people you want with password protection. Only the selected audience will receive this information on their computers. This kind of information can also serve a major purpose to the audience in case of another event.

Live event webcasting is the best technology used to channel live events like training sessions, meetings, workshops, brainstorming sessions, and activities like team building. In addition, the audience can use it to communicate with their peers living in rural areas. Viewers can hear and see the presenters on the webcast website as this possible through, interactive chat boxes, live video and a presentation window supporting PowerPoint and Keynote presentations.

Live webcasting can also be recorded, and you can watch it later in case you were not available when the event was happening like a live training session

  • Large audiences you are able to reach an unlimited number of people around the world.

Webcasts – Can be live or pre-recorded

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.

Extend Your Reach With Live Streaming

Conferences everywhere are using Live Streaming as a means to reach those that aren’t geographically nearby and thus, connect with a wider audience. For example, last week at the Meetings & Events Australia National Conference in Darwin, even though Lauren was Live Streamingthe only member of the Forum Group Events team physically present to receive our National Awards for CSR and Education, the rest of our team were still able to enjoy the moment because of the Live Streaming.

Watching at home in Sydney, we still felt connected to the Association, the event and conference attendees, and we were able to compliment our industry colleagues on their speeches (without them knowing we were watching in our pyjamas)!

The weekend prior the TEDxSydney Conference utilised Live Streaming technology and had viewing parties from close as the Studio Theatre, underneath the main concert hall in the Opera House, to as far as Peru. In our increasingly global marketplace, we predict that within a few years Live Streaming will be the standard for all conferences wanting to have an internationally recognised brand.
