Making the most of your conference by setting up a video webcast to live stream it online

Many of our clients are relying more and more on the use of Webcasting conferences in Toronto, or Live Video Streaming at events throughout Ontario or various other ares of their business communications. Webcasting is best suited for use in situations where you need to distribute information quickly and effectively to large audiences in different locales; this may include conferences, training and development, or emergency communications.

There are many moving parts involved, and utilizing the wrong equipment or platform can quickly turn a successfully planned Webcast or Live Stream into a blunder. We have setup a check list of the major AV equipment components required to make sure your Webcast go off without a hitch:

  • At least a 30/10 Mbps ISP connection
  • Mic/Podium
  • Wireless Mic
  • Sound System
  • Audio Mixer
  • Projector and Screen
  • Laptops
  • iPads
  • Wireless Remote
  • HD Video camera
  • PowerPoint Encoder
  • HD Video Encoder

While a DIY solution is an option for some business ventures, this is one area that is easy to get overly complex and have embarrassing or awkward technical issues without professional technicians consulting and running the equipment.

While the above captures the information to be shared, a platform must be utilized to broadcast to your audience. This will take into account the length of the Webcast, the number of viewers involved, and how long you would like it archived in order to be accessible after the event is over. In addition to having it archived online, having a hard copy recording of your Webcast in DVD format is also beneficial.

Our staff here at Metrocom are webcast experts who can consult with you and assist you in making all of the necessary arrangements for your upcoming Webcast. We can provide all of the recommended equipment rentals in addition to a strong platform, and will also include a high-quality DVD recording of your event.
