Like everything we do, you only get out of something, what you put in. Streaming events can be as simple as 1 camera to more complicated multi-camera setups with presentations, music, graphics etc.
Experienced technicians are a key part of a successful broadcast. Our technicians help ensure everything runs smoothly throughout, allowing you to focus on other aspects of the event.
We are focused on ensuring a successful broadcast and have invested heavily in equipment and training over the past number of years. Our choice of streaming services is also key to successful broadcast, while we can use your own live stream credentials, our choice of suppliers considers their location throughout the world and also their Content Delivery Network or CDN.
Encoders are used to take your camera, presentation etc and produce a digital stream that can be sent to an online service that allows your audience to watch from anywhere. These encoders do the hard work and ensure audio and video are delivered correctly.
Vision mixers, allow you to broadcast anything from 1 camera to 20, while also making use of lower thirds, stings, graphics, instant replay and audio. Not only can you send feeds to a live stream, but also to screens, LED Walls, Projectors etc in the main event space itself.
Audio is a key part to any broadcast, you can lose or gain viewers based on audio no matter how good the video quality is. Broadcast audio is different from the audio you would hear if you actually attend the event. We would look at each project individually and produce an audio solution suited to the event.
Lighting is an element that is almost always overlooked, however, it is just as important as any other aspect of a live broadcast. One of the simplest ways to add production value to your live events is with three-point lighting. Three-point lighting is the foundation of all lighting setups, whether for a pre-recorded program or a live broadcast. With three-point lighting, you can ensure your subject is softly lit from multiple angles, giving your live video a nice, even look.
An Internet Connection is the backbone of a live stream, depending on the resolution of your stream, you can expect to need at least a 10mbps upload connection. It is also recommended that this be a dedicated connection, separate from public wifi hot spots etc. This ensures your connection remains stable throughout the broadcast. 4G mobile networks can also be used, as well as bonded encoders that utilise up to 4 separate 4G networks from multiple suppliers. A site visit or test should always be carried out at your venue before deciding to move forward.
