Town Hall Webcasts which allows presenters (often CEO's and Presidents) to address employees is our most popular webcast format. In addition to live video, webcasts often include PowerPoint presentations, a separate video segment as well as custom branding for the client.
We recently traveled to New Orleans, LA for one such webcast for a Fortune 15 client. While we did not have much free time, a walk over to Jackson Square on our set-up day allowed a lunch in the bustling French Quarter.
The three-camera live switch was produced in the same manner as when we are working with our live broadcast clients, with much of the same equipment.
With webcasts, the need for the satellite uplink goes away and instead we encode the broadcast and feed it live to our Content Delivery Network (CDN) where it is distributed to viewers around the country or even the world.
The one-hour webcast was seen by over 1000 people watching on their desktops, laptops, tablets and even iPhones. An archive of the live event was available to anyone not able to attend the live event.
It had been several years since my last visit to New Orleans, so it was nice to visit the Crescent City once again.
Webcasts can originate from any location, whether Atlanta, New Orleans or Tulsa, OK. As long as a high-speed, dedicated internet connection is available, Forrester Media can produce the webcast as a turnkey event. Give us a call at 800-201-8102 to learn more about our webcasting services.
