Live Streaming – how can it help event organisers, planners & venues?
Live streaming is an integral component of your event mix. Here’s a break down of what live streaming is and how it can help your event tech mix.
What is it?
In its simplest form live streaming is the broadcasting of live video to an audience over the internet. This can be done through a number of platforms such as Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, and LinkedIn to name a few. Away from social platforms, you can also stream across dedicated web pages for internal comms.
Why use it?
Live-streaming has a number of benefits such as increasing attendance, building a social gathering, and increasing brand authenticity. Given the current travel limitations, you can supplement the physical audience with a virtual audience. If attendees have already purchased tickets for the event, a live-streaming link can be provided for the main stage for example. This would mean they could still soak up key content in real-time while also asking questions.
What is the cost?
We have 3 different packages at London Filmed:
- Basic – small to medium events, simple set-up with single-channel i.e. just YouTube.
- Standard – medium to large, complex set-up with multi-camera angles, presentation slides and streamed to multiple channels.
- Premium – in line with the standard package but allows for 2 ways of interaction and enhanced graphics.
Pricing starts from £1.5k but the cost really depends on complexity, set-up, and what the venue/studio already has at its disposal. It’s important a site visit is carried out to fully scope out the most appropriate option for you.
If you feel this is something your event could benefit from, please get in touch and take a look at our live stream services.
