October was chock full of treats...and conventions! It's one of the busiest months for Orlando conferences - and we were equally busy webcasting and live streaming some of those events.
We started the month with the Grace Hopper Celebration, which brought more than 20,000 attendees to the Orange County Convention Center. We streamed from the 14,000 seat main hall on three days. A second team was on site to stream for 4 days from another room at the convention center.
Orlando Webcast crews streamed for two days at a All-Hands company town hall from the Orlando headquarters of a logistics company. This private event reached employees around the country with news of initiatives and strategies designed for continued growth of the company.
Our crews also provided four days of live streaming for an annual conference at the JW Marriott hotel in Orlando. We received four camera feeds, a graphics and video feed and created a custom webcast for the online audience. We partnered with one of our webcast platforms to provide Okta security integration for the event. The webcast was only available to employees who logged into their accounts through approved devices, removing the chance of unauthorized access outside the company.
In mid-October, we were part of a three-city live stream on the Zoom platform for a State of the Company town hall that combined live presentations, videos and slides from each city, along with the ability for live interaction between presenters.
We supported out-of-state productions with camera crews and equipment when their client needed video production and live streaming services in Orlando. It's always a great time to work with other streaming professionals! It's also a chance to share stories and best practices.
While video production and live streaming are our key services, we supported clients with lots more, including presentation timers, Perfect Cue slide clickers, confidence monitors, pipe and drape, Playback Pro and other equipment usually provided by outside AV vendors. One call to Orlando Webcasts and we have you covered!
Our final webcast in October took us to Coral Gables, a suburb of Miami, for a client sales meeting. While our primary encoder used the in-house gigabit internet circuit, we used the TVU One wireless modem to stream our backup feed. These units are the answer to locations where hardwire circuits are unavailable or too slow for live streaming. We averaged 45Mpbs of available upload bandwidth for this day-long conference while only needing about 4Mbps. A great product when a wireless solution is required!
October was busy and fortunately, no tricks, only great events throughout the Sunshine State!
