Why & How?

Live streaming is everywhere, with viewers watching events online and members of the public streaming their lives on social media. But why and how should you live stream your event?

1. WHAT

What is Event Broadcasting?

Event Broadcasting also known as webcasting, live streaming and webinars, gives people who are unable to personally attend an event a front row seat live on any computer or smart device.
After the event, the recorded video is stored online so that viewers can watch the action back On Demand at their convenience.

Viewers can watch a live stream on social media such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. There are also specific video platforms such as YouTube and Vimeo, whilst Stream7 can provide you with our fully customisable, dedicated Event Video Platform.
