Fall meetings and conventions at Orlando Webcasts

Fall is just around the corner, and with it comes the autumn slate of meetings and conferences in the City Beautiful, Orlando. September, October and November are three of our busiest months and we're ready to hit the ground running this year.

We made system and software upgrades over the summer on our encoding workstations, bought additional AJA and Decimator converters and expanded our network of qualified technicians and camera operators.

Live streaming made easy with Orlando Webcasts

As the popularity of live streaming and webcasting grows in the corporate and convention markets, we receive inquiries about our services and how an Orlando Webcasts live video stream can be incorporated into conferences, town halls, meetings and other events.

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.

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 UStream, Vimeo or GoToWebinar a better choice? These platforms can be password-protected, allowing only those you choose to view the live stream.

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.

Looking for the best webcasting company in Orlando?

Let's say you're having a convention in Orlando and want to live stream your major announcement. Perhaps you want to stream in-booth presentations made by team members, or keynotes and breakout sessions. Where do you start in choosing a vendor?

There are three key areas to consider when choosing a webcast company in Orlando.

First and foremost, do they have experience in producing a live stream event? Are webcasts and live streaming services their primary business?

Second, do they have reviews and recommendations from past customers that are posted on Google or other business site (not just their website)?

Third, can you see samples of their work? Note: this is an item that may require a phone call. Many clients do not want their internal communications shared publicly.

Fourth, call them. Are they engaged in the conversation? Do they ask questions about your project? Do they make you feel they are capable of handling your project? Are they professional, yet friendly?

If you can answer 'yes' to each of the four questions above, you've likely found the best webcast company in Orlando...and odds are, it's Orlando Webcasts.

We're the only company in Orlando, and all of Central Florida, that specializes in producing webcasts, webinars and live streaming events.

Orlando Webcasts can provide cameras, microphones, lights, encoding and the streaming of your event.

Town hall and all-hands meeting webcasts

Town hall and all-hands meetings are regular events at many companies. These meetings allow senior leadership to talk with employees about important initiatives, policies and news.

When companies have multiple offices spread around a city, or around the country or globe, the ability to address all employees at one time, in a single event, ensures all stakeholders receive the same message. That's where webcasts enter the picture!

Private, log-in protected webcasts provide a virtual venue where employees can watch and even have the ability to ask questions. The event can be viewed on virtually any web browser, including phones, tablets, laptops and desktops.

Every event is custom branded with the client logo and important information about the event. Slide decks, videos, forms or other assets can be included to enhance the experience.

Companies of all sizes benefit from clear communication with employees and Orlando Webcasts provides webcasting solutions to help achieve that goal. Contact us for details.

Live streaming increases impact of meetings and events

Live streaming an event, such as a town hall, keynote session or all-hands meeting allows presenters to reach distant audiences, increasing the impact of those events. With ever-increasing airline fares and hotel rates, live streaming allows better time utilization and reduced employee travel costs.

While most live streams and webcasts are used by companies with multiple offices throughout a region, or the country, live streams can be used when there is not sufficient capacity at the primary venue for all the employees within the building or campus. We've streamed to conference rooms on other floors as well as other cities - and viewing parties are a good way to keep employees connected and engaged.

To learn more about how live streaming and webcasting can best serve your company or organization, contact Orlando Webcasts. We're here to answer your questions.

Using pay-per-view on a live stream event

Orlando Webcasts provides clients the option of monetizing their live stream events. Workshops, seminars and conferences can all benefit from live streaming, adding virtual attendees, no matter their location. Adding the pay-per-view option makes sense for events where the content, such as continuing education credits, are earned for attendees. Pay-per-view can also defray costs for event sponsors when important and marketable information is shared during the session.

Events can be scheduled, a branded landing page created and user-friendly, integrated credit card processing enabled. Events can run part of a day, all day or even multiple days. You can view a recent event here: https://zija.ce21.com/item/zija-summit-move-2018-241108

Once registered, attendees receive email reminders of the event and tips on logging in and viewing the live stream, all in an effort to minimize issues once the event is live. Live support via a toll-free number and email is available should viewers encounter difficulties in viewing the live stream.

On the day of the live event, attendees will login to a browser-based web player that includes a video feed and an optional slide deck feed in the left panel of the page. The right panel includes program information, schedules, speaker bios, handouts, chat and other customized options for the event.

October Surprises

Fall weather is finally in the air in Orlando! Cooler temperatures and lower humidity are making for great days to be outside, though nearly every job we have is inside! Nonetheless, we'll take it!

It's days like the one in the picture above that reminds me of why Central Florida is my home.

October days have been filled with webcasting projects. We spent three days at Disney's Grand Floridian Hotel and Spa this month encoding a webcast for Price Waterhouse Coopers (PWC). The production required three satellite trucks that downlinked presenters from other cities, and uplinked local presentations to other cities. A great production and we were pleased to encode the meeting for the web audience.
