What is live event streaming?
Effectively it means we broadcast your event LIVE on the internet in real time. This can be broadcast through your own website, via Facebook, Livestream or through our website. Live streaming events is a fairly new concept, by utilising this leading edge technology you show your company to be forward thinking and, in a time when corporate marketing is changing, it will help you stand out from your competitors.
What are the advantages of live streaming?
When you broadcast your event live, you provide an opportunity to substantially increase your audience. Viewers can watch online in the comfort of their home or office. If you have the facilities, your event can be streamed to large screens at a nearby location, creating another event atmosphere.
For many hosting a private or corporate event, your audience may be unable to attend as they are working, living far away or even abroad; they can now tune in online.
If you choose to livestream to your website, you are offering your brand the opportunity to significantly increase the traffic to your website. Having a bespoke page for the livestream offers opportunity to cross market other products and services you provide.
What if we are already filming our event?
Provided your cameras have an HD-SDI, SDI or HDMI output; our technology allows your cameras to connect to our system to stream live. Our technician edits the camera angles live and directs the video either straight to your website, Facebook, Livestream or, our website.
How many camera angles will you film with?
All our packages are provided with a minimum of 2 camera angles, one manned and one static. Our standard system can input up to six cameras. These can be static or manned angles. Our vision mixer will ensure your viewers are watching the best angle at all times. Multiple angles help translate the event atmosphere to your online audience.
Can I have a copy of the footage?
All our packages include a digital copy of the livestream as it was seen by your viewers. We can provide you the footage from each camera for an additional fee.
Can we benefit financially from the event?
Yes! Virtual attendees can be free or, they can pay a one off fee to watch the event.
We offer a digital copy of your event at the end of your event. You may choose to either sell DVD’s as it was seen on the live stream or, edit the footage separately.
How can we maximise our audience?
We recommend marketing as much as possible in the lead up to the event to ensure the best viewing results. Updates through your social media (Facebook, Twitter etc.), email, advertising in your newsletter/ collateral sent to delegates who will be attending, are just some of the ways you can inform your audience.
How do we know viewers are logging in and using the service?
Red Shell Productions provide a report which analyses how many unique viewers logged on and depending on which solution you choose, which countries your viewers were watching from.
What is required and what will happen on the day?
Red Shell Productions require a wired internet connection with a minimum of 1mb upload speed. The higher the upload speed, the better the stream and this determines if we can broadcast your event live in low, medium and/or HD quality.
Prior to the event, we prefer to conduct a site check to ensure the internet connection is fast enough. During our visit, we will ascertain a set up location and camera angles so on the day of your event, we will arrive and know exactly what’s expected.
What if my venue has no internet?
If there is no internet connection to your venue, contact us as we work with partners who can provide a temporary connection to your venue.
How do our audience watch the live event Streaming?
Our technology offers a few options on how to stream your event:
Option 1: Livestream
Our preferred option is to livestream through the Livestream platform. We can create an event for you on their website and you can send your viewers a link to the page. If you would like to embed the player into your website or incorporate your own branding around the page, Livestream will allow you to upgrade your account on a one off or long term subscription fee.
Option 2: Your website
We will supply you html code to implement on your website. The code looks similar to the code you’d use to embed a YouTube video and allows you to personalise and brand the page your viewers will be watching from. Viewers will then visit your website and click to the relevant page to watch the event live.
Option 3: Facebook
If you choose option 2, viewers can watch the ceremony both live on your website or, through your Facebook page.
Option 4: Our website
Red Shell Productions have a ‘live’ section on our website where we can stream the event to.
