Event Livestreaming

Many are still lacking the confidence to attend or participate in person events, but still want to be included. Increasingly organisations also have members who are working remotely –  either in the UK or internationally – but who still value being involved in an active way. Also, due to constraints in in person numbers at events in order to adhere to social distancing, it is not always possible to include all those who wish to attend in person. Livestreaming events can help address these issues.

How does livestreaming work?

Typically, there are three different ways:

In person events – where you livestream what is happening at the in person event using cameras, microphones etc to participants attending remotely on their laptops or mobile devices (eg mobile phones, tablets, ipads).

Hybrid events – where you livestream what is happening at the in person and virtual event (eg Zoom meeting/webinar) to participants attending remotely on their laptops or mobile devices (eg mobile phones, tablets, ipads). An example of this might be where you want to stream both in person participants and speakers as well as those involved virtually.

Virtual events – where you livestream the virtual event (eg Zoom webinar where you might have a cap of 100 participants) to a much bigger audience attending remotely on their laptops or mobile devices (eg mobile phones, tablets, ipads).

What are the key features of livestreaming?

  • Events livestreamed to a platform of your choice (most common being YouTube or Vimeo) in high definition
