Are there multiple speakers or sessions? Need to display synchronized slides? Do you have pre-produced video that you want streamed into the webcast? You can do all of that. Your live webcast can be Audio only, Video only, or Video with synchronized Powerpoint slides. You can use a combination of all of these presentation types, even from different rooms.  Based on your requirements we'll arrange the equipment and crew and deploy the website and Media Portal as needed.

Site Survey

We travel to your location, wherever it is, and test the provided internet connection for speed and stability BEFORE the event. We make certain that every variable has been addressed. We verify the venue is prepared with lighting, staging and the proper in-room audio and video. If you need us to provide the A/V or even backup cellular connectivity, we do this before the event.

Deploy Web Portal

Using our V3 Media Portal platform, we setup all the technology needed for the webcast. If you prefer full control we'll show you how to Do-it-Yourself. You'll quickly be creating a portal for your webcast events.

After we've secured the domain name for your Portal, our step-by-step process takes you through creating the layout of the event website using logos, images and text. You create the events. If it is a one time, single day event, you'll create what we call a Webinar. Or you can setup a multi-room, multi-day conference. Pick the dates, choose the access/login method, choose the registration page layout and form fields and setup your reminder and confirmation emails.

You then create the agenda with session details. If the events are conferences - multi-day events - you'll likely add speakers, photos and bios and assign them to their sessions, You'll upload the PPT's that will accompany the synchronized video.

Hit "Publish" and the portal is live on the web. Until the day of the event we push a Test Video to the portal.

Setup and Capture

On the day of the event we connect our encoding computer and hardware to the video source, typically one of our HD video cameras such as our Panasonic HC 3800 or HPX 3100 cameras. Or we'll use our HS-50 video switchers that allow us to switch multiple video sources into the live webcast.

These sources can be a computer, a projector, a digital device such as the display output of a medical or technical diagnostic device,  or an audio only source. Very flexible.

Encode and Stream

To send the live webcast stream to your audience we employ encoding software to take the data from the input device and convert it to a streaming format. The encoding process compresses the signal making it possible to send very high quality audio and video over a reasonably fast broadband internet connection.

  • We compress the audio using the audio codec AAC.
  • We encode the video and compress it using H.264 for the best quality at the proper bitrates.
  • We weigh the options of bitrate vs. bandwidth and audience. Encoding at a HIGH bitrate requires a faster connection at the webcast and for the viewer. A lower bitrate can sacrifice quality for ease of delivery. We're expert at fine-tuning the delivery at the event.

The encoded signal is sent out to the Content Delivery Network (CDN) and out to our Streaming Servers. To assure delivery to all devices the webcast signals, or “streams” are assembled into an Mpeg4 a container as HLS streams. This allows compatibility with mobile and desktop devices viewers may use to watch your live webcast. The stream is delivered from our streaming server to the video player on the viewer's device using a transport protocol such as HLS or RTMP - depending on the device that's detected at the viewers end.

Archive the Webcast

As the content is being encoded and broadcast we are simultaneously recording it in HD and archiving it to our Media servers where the video is assigned to the event in your portal for later on-demand viewing.

If you wish to do so, you can allow access to your archived on-demand library immediately following the live event, or at any time. Reme,ber, YOU control access.

You can share or even sell each webcast presentation using our user management and registration tools and our e-commerce gateways. Go ahead and share your webcasts with colleagues, teams, partners. Makeyour webcasts freely available to the public, or incorporate the presentations into e-learning courses.
