UpCity Local Award 2022

Mark Tepper, SVP of Sales & Customer Success at UpCity, had this to say about Orlando Corporate Media, Inc.:

“There are a lot of agencies out there, but few come with as many glowing reviews from their customers as Orlando Corporate Media. The overwhelming support they receive from their community of clients is truly phenomenal. We’re proud to feature them as a winner of a 2022 Local Excellence Award.”

This recognition has been driven in large part by our 5-star review rating on UpCity. Here are a few of our favorite pieces of feedback we’ve received from our incredible customers:

“ I have worked with Orlando Webcasts on many events and they always deliver top-notch quality service, even during the most challenging circumstances. Recently we were faced with last-minute labor changes due to covid 19 challenges, and they were able to make it happen and made us very comfortable during a stressful time crunch. I would recommend Orlando Corporate Media wholeheartedly for any size event or venue because they always deliver.” - Eric Hernandez

“When I need a video production resource I can count on, I turn to Mike Forrester and his team at Orlando Corporate Media. As a Creative Director with clients all over the country, it's essential to have reliable and dedicated go-to crews, editors, producers, and directors and Orlando Webcasts delivers every time! And when my clients have a need for webcasts, there's an amazing peace of mind in knowing that they handle all of the technical and production flawlessly, so I can focus on the content. Highly recommend them!” - Susan Shoer

It’s a tremendous honor to be named one of the best agencies in our field in our area. Thank you to UpCity for recognizing our work, and thank you to our clients for your trust and support over the years.

Live stream events to connect with your audience

Live stream services from Orlando Webcasts allow event planners to engage more than on-site attendees. Providing a virtual option engages additional employees, members, fans and stakeholders who otherwise would not be able to attend. 

We guide our clients through the entire process and make recommendations based on your requirements and budget. In this post, we'll briefly explain your options on getting started with live streaming an event. 

2022-03-23 (2)

Live streaming a general session at an Orlando conference.

Nearly any event can be live streamed, provided the availability of a high-speed Internet connection with a minimum upload speed of 6Mbps, though higher speeds could be required for certain events. Contact the venue IT department and confirm the connection speeds, along with any associated costs. A hard line connection is preferred over a wireless connection.

Next, who is your audience? Are they employees? Investors? Fans? Does the presentation content include confidential information or do you want to reach as many people as possible?

Depending on your answers, there are several distribution methods available. Orlando Webcasts can stream to any platform or portal and we can recommend the platform that best meets your requirements.

Will a free service like YouTube or Facebook reach your audience? These outlets can reach tens of thousands of viewers and are frequently used for conferences, announcements and promotional events.

Is a paid service like Zoom, Teams, WebEx or GoToWebinar a better choice? These platforms can be password-protected, allowing only those you choose to view the live stream, but white label branding is limited, if offered at all.

Your third option is a private webcasting platform which provides security, better integration with PowerPoint slides and video playback, a Q&A function to ask the presenter questions, detailed analytics, custom branding, an online archive of past events and other benefits. This option can also be the most expensive depending on the size of the audience and length of the webcast.

Choosing the correct distribution method is an important decision. Orlando Webcasts works with all of the options listed above and will help you determine the best solution.

Now it's time to decide how the video and audio are going to be filmed at the event site. 

Depending on where the event is held, you may need to work with the in-house Audio/Visual company and use their crew, microphones, camera(s), lighting and other gear they are contracted to provide conferences and meetings. Large events may already have IMAG (image magnification) cameras in the general session rooms. In either case, we work with the A/V company to receive a feed from their camera and use that feed as the video source for the live stream event.

In other locations, we can supply the crew, camera, microphones and lighting. Each event is unique, so we offer customized solutions to fit the needs of each project.

Once the venue, crew and platform are selected, Orlando Webcasts will work with you to customize the look and feel of your event player, including graphics and logos, slide decks and playback videos, along with other elements needed for the webcast.

We'll schedule a site visit, confirm load-in and test times, and handle the production of your live streaming event. Post-show, we'll provide audience logistics for private webcasts,  an archive recording of the program and complete other tasks needed to wrap up the production.

Our Frequently Asked Questions page on the Orlando Webcasts website offers additional information. It's an easy way to learn more about webcasts and live streaming. One of our most important tasks is to educate and inform our clients about options, services and capabilities.

Live streams: One size does not fit all

While Zoom, Teams and WebEx are everyday tools in most workplaces, some live streams require a more robust platform. That's why Orlando Webcasts utilizes over a dozen different live stream platforms. Each platform has its advantages, depending on use and the audience.

We learn what the client needs and make a recommendation for the platform best suited for their event. Sometimes there are multiple choices, each with different features and price points. Our equipment connects to any live stream service provider, so our goal is to ensure the client has a great experience with their selection.

The most requested platforms are the ones mentioned above; Zoom, Teams and WebEx. Companies, and their employees, are familiar with the platforms which makes them a default, easy choice. They are designed for full interactivity, which sometimes is not what a company may want on a specific event. Keeping people muted or cameras turned off can be troublesome and distracting to the presenter and audience.

Zoom Webinars are a good option when limited interaction is preferred, but with Zoom, branding is limited, so it may not be the right fit, especially when dealing with outside audiences that could include potential clients, shareholders, fans or other stakeholders.

On medium-sized events, we often use Vimeo as the network provider. Sometimes we stay entirely on the Vimeo platform. Other times, we deliver the stream to our in-house website (https://webcast321.com), or to a host platform where we build a custom page or microsite for the event that is branded, offers registration options and valuable viewer analytics. This is often the sweet spot for companies wanting to make a great impression at a good price point.

One the largest events, we have been using GlobalMeet, formerly TalkPoint, for more than a decade. This enterprise-grade platform ensures the security, features and capacity for thousands of viewers, along with detailed viewer analytics that are often required by Fortune 500 companies, healthcare and medical clients, and and other large organizations.

Here's a list of the live stream platforms we've connected to in the past year:

Webcast321
Zoom
WebEx
Teams
GoToMeeting
EventLive
6Connex
Cvent
IBM Video Streaming
BeaconLive
StreamYard
Vimeo
GlobalMeet
Notify
YouTube
Facebook
Twitter
Twitch
There are countless other platforms, and we can connect to any of them.

Confused? Don't be. We're here to guide you through the live stream process and recommend solutions that meet your needs. It's our goal for you to have a successful event from all sides - audience, presenters, support staff and, of course, price.

Capturing viewers with a live 2/47 webcam

It has been one year since we started the live webcam on behalf of the Winter Garden Heritage Foundation in downtown Winter Garden. In that time, nearly 765,000 viewers have spent an average of 7 minutes watching the webcam!

The camera has not only captured viewers, it has introduced viewers to the Heritage Foundation and its mission, and created new connections with downtown business owners and city leaders.

We're pleased to be the sponsor and provide the maintenance and support for the YouTube live stream.

Give your Zoom virtual events an upgrade!

For the past 18 months, much of the world has turned to Zoom for virtual meetings. The simplicity of the platform made it a fast favorite for many companies and employees working from home.

Some of our clients have started upgrading their Zoom (and WebEx) events with our video production and encoding services to make the event more interesting and engaging. Instead of talking with someone on their webcam, our client rented a hotel conference room where we created a professional production studio complete with lighting, wireless microphones, two cameras, live switching and other features.

Conference Room Studio
Meeting room at Orlando hotel transformed into a studio for the virtual event.

The client brought in medical instruments to showcase to existing clients looking to upgrade their equipment, along with potential clients. Using Zoom, we connected the on-site sales team with their virtual audience. Sessions were scheduled throughout the day and each included time for Q&A at the end of the presentation. We used a PA speaker connected to our Zoom laptop so the presenters could hear the moderator and audience.

The event was so successful, the client booked us for several more in 2020 and 2021. 

Here's what our client shared in her Google 5-Star Review:
"Mike and his team at Orlando Webcasts have been instrumental to our company being able to pivot during the pandemic. As a company that operates in in-person sales and support, we needed to move fast to find a new way to connect with our customers to support our business objectives and meet our customers' needs. Mike and his team empowered our company to meet objectives in a difficult environment in a way I never imagined and gave us a competitive edge! Orlando Webcasts was our company's best find of 2020! Mike and his team are highly professional, able to adapt in high pressure environments, easy to work with, responsive, and attentive to the details! Mike is always available and willing to find a solution to anything you throw his way. His expertise helped us connect with more customers than we could in a typical trade show in a meaningful way for a lower investment. I could not recommend Orlando Webcasts any more highly!"

A review like that makes all the work worthwhile. One line, however, stands out: "His expertise helped us connect with more customers than we could in a typical trade show in a meaningful way for a lower investment." Those words reveal a new reality: virtual events can deliver better results than trade shows at a lower cost. While this client was forced to cancel trade shows due to the pandemic, they found virtual events to be a great alternative.

They delivered a highly customized interaction and it took just one hour of their customers time. Can't make the trade show? No problem. We'll bring our booth to you.

The pandemic has changed the way many companies operate and connect with the customers and employees.

Orlando Webcasts has the team and experience to create a virtual meeting or event anywhere. Using production resources around the US, we can create an on-site production studio and stream the event live to your customers on Zoom, WebEx, Teams or any business streaming portal or platform.
