Live Streaming is popular, so how can you get in on it too?
In today’s fast paced world with video being streamed from our tv’s, phones, computers and just about everywhere we go, you might be wondering if streaming is something you should be doing too. It might even seem like an easy thing to do. Plug something new in, a few clicks here and there and you’re ready to go. However, it may not be as easy as binging Netflix on the weekend. Here are a few things to consider if you want to start broadcasting your video content to your audience.
Your first move should be creating specific goals for what you want your streaming options to be. Broadcasting systems can range in price from thousands of dollars to millions, so having a clear idea of how you want to use your system is important. Who do you want to broadcast to? Will you be streaming from multiple locations? How will your participants access your video, and from what? Will you be recording large events? How often will you be recording? Will you require archiving video for future use or will it only appear once? Do you want to show a single camera, multiple cameras, and do you want to include graphics as well. Once you’ve written the answers to these questions our team can better help you find the equipment you’ll need.
As for the connection to your router, always look to get a wired connection as wireless doesn’t hold up well for dedicated streaming. Even if it works flawlessly for a test, it may not keep working after your event room is full of smartphone users.
