How do we deliver your live event videos to the world? When your event is held outdoors, or indoor with limited wifi or internet access, using a mobile 4G modem or public wifi access does not sound very reassuring. We invest in a cellular bonding solution, LiveU. This hardware allows us to bond multiple sets of 4G modems (each using different 4G mobile service provider), including wifi and LAN connections, to provide a reliable upstream. Even if any one of the connections fails, it will not interrupt the upstream with its Live Reliable Protocol. This is a trusted solution by all major News Broadcast Organisations. As such, you can rest assured that we can deliver your live streamings professionally.
These are the common questions asked by my clients;
How many cameras should we have?
Obviously, it depends on your budget. More cameras allow us to switch to different angles adding high value productions to engage your viewers. And also it depends on what kind of events… concerts, house of worship, indoor expositions, outdoor sports over a large distance…etc. Each camera is operated by a operator which add some creative camera movements for entertainment value. Speaking sessions usually require lesser cameras but would have picture-in-picture features like displaying a powerpoint at the same time with the speaker’s video as picture-in-picture format.
Should I stream to Facebook or Youtube?
It depends on where are your audience. Or you don’t even need to make a choice. Stream to both. We are able to stream to multiple destinations at the same time with only one feed out. Output feed is sent to our server which is located in a data centre which in turn is relaying the video to multiple sites via a much faster broadband. This allows us to be onsite with a limited mobile bandwidth. While social media platforms are free, they have restrictions on the content and punctuated with advertisements. They often have distractions which may also draw your viewers attention away. Spring Forest Studio is a partner of IBM Cloud Video which provides a much more reliable platform. Quality of connection is monitored. We can provide webcast to client’s website with security settings like a restricted embedded link, password access, non-searchable channel page etc. Lesser latency and faster connections. You can even monetize your live feed.
Can I invite guest speakers remotely into the stream?
You can invite up to 8 remote guests to take part of your stream. They don’t need an expensive hardware setup. All they need technically is a PC with a good webcam. No installation of software. They need a Google Chrome browser or firefox on their PC. That’s it. And of course, ample lighting, and a good microphone go a long way.
What do we get after the stream?
We will deliver the recorded output video. You can edit and post this video at much higher quality.
Besides streaming out to social media platforms, can we project the video live feed on-site?
Yes. We can connect to the auditorium’s projector or any LED TV.
Do you provide 4K live stream?
Yes. However 4K stream is very resource hungry. It requires 4 times the resources needed for a 1080p (FullHD). We need to ensure that the bandwidth is sufficient to handle the workflow. The cameras are generally more expensive and should be capable of 4K live output. You also need to stream to platforms capable of 4K content like IBM Cloud Video – UStream.
