Live streaming enables participants to join your event from remote locations. They can view the event as it happens and interact with each other in real-time. With the tools avaialbe, today live event streaming is easier than ever.
Live streaming has 4 parts
For example, if a user has abandoned the process during the payment stage, we can use the contact information captured in the previous stage to follow up and perhaps offer an incentive to complete the registration (coupon?).
To create an interesting and engaging video you may want to use a live broadcast video editor. Live video editors allow you to capture live video from multiple sources, multiple cameras, screen captures, presentations, and recorded video. Create a video stream composed of multiple video source streams and switch between streams. You can also add titles, custom graphics, virtual studio backgrounds, live background images, and other video effects that can make your video broadcast more interesting and engaging.
Some of the most common live video tools available are
With a focus on video quality, sometimes audio quality does not get enough attention but for most live events good audio quality is critical. Clear audio makes it easier to understand speakers and enjoy live music.
4 ways to improve audio quality
The actual broadcasting or distribution of the video to viewers is done by a server (See Video Distribution) so it does not relay or use your local network bandwidth. You need to make sure your local can send a quality video to the encoding server. How much bandwidth is required to transmit video to the encoding server depends on video resolution and quality but also on how dynamic the video itself is (video of static images requires less bandwidth, moving the camera takes more bandwidth)
|360p||640x360||1 Mbps||Good for smartphones|
|480p||854x480||2 Mbps||Standard definition widescreen|
|720p 30fps||1280x720||4 Mbps||HD minimum|
|1080p 30fps||1920x1080||6 Mbps||Full HD|
|4K 30fps||3840x2160||34 Mbps||UHD|
Always ensure you have extra bandwidth above the minimum required. Available upload bandwidth is affected by all the local network users. Some internet providers do not guarantee they will provide the specified bandwidth all the time. A 5MB upload link sometimes means 5MB maximum. The actual upload bandwidth is not guaranteed.
