What is livestreaming?
Simply put: it's the broadcasting of your content live across the internet. Chance are you've watched a livestream if you've ever seen an Apple Keynote or even current late-night television programs. My team and I can offer the same caliber of production value through things like pre-recorded intros and segments, lower thirds, custom transitions, and even multiple camera angles. The best part is the livestream itself is recorded, so you're getting the benefit of a live audience plus content you can reuse later on your website and social channels.
Why should I livestream?
Now, more than ever, we're seeing a rise in livestreaming as an alternative to large, in-person events like conferences and meetups. This makes your content not only more accessible to a larger audience, but meets them where they are: major social media platforms. Imagine going live and immediately all of your followers instantly get a push notification that you're online and delivering quality content. That's powerful stuff!
What platforms can we livestream to?
You've probably heard of at least of few of these: Facebook, Instagram, Periscope, YouTube, Twitch, Caffeine, LinkedIn, and UStream to name a few. Plus, you can stream the same content to multiple sources in order to reach and even larger audience.
What kind of equipment is needed?
Chances are you have an acceptable livestream setup with either your phone/laptop and a decent set of headphones, but we can recommend a number of items to make sure your video looks crisp and your audio sounds rich. We'll also make recommendations for enhancements by either using our equipment (socially distant, of course), or by acquiring and using your own.
What kind of equipment could you provide?
Ah, you're a nerd like me. I like that! The options are really endless: we can provide a switcher that can live switch, stream and record all at once. We can provide 4k resolution support, multiple HDMI and SDI switchable inputs along with multiple audio sources as well. We can livestream on nearly all RTMP compatible services and make the videos private, behind a paywall or login, and then immediately help you monetize them once they complete.
