VIRTUAL & HYBRID STREAMING SERVICES
ON TOUR EVENTS TALKS ''HYBRID & VIRTUAL EVENTS'' AND SHARES SOME USEFUL INFORMATION
CHOOSE THE UK'S PREMIER LIVE STREAMING PROVIDER FOR YOUR VIRTUAL & HYBRID EVENTS
While they were borne out of necessity, virtual and hybrid events are here to stay. Despite the initial teething problems, both event attendees and organisers have quickly realised that there are numerous benefits to live streaming an event, even if there are in-person attendees.
From weddings to industry conferences and corporate events, live streaming plays a vital role in making virtual and hybrid events possible. So let’s take a look at how our live streaming services can help you to create a memorable event.
+BENEFITS OF CREATING A VIRTUAL OR HYBRID EVENT WITH LIVE STREAMING SERVICES
One of the reasons that these types of events have taken off is because they remove many of the limits placed on physical events. For example, in-person conferences that used to be limited to the space afforded by the venue can expand their reach right across the globe.
You’re no longer bound by the number of heads your Heathrow conference centre can support, for instance. Instead, you can accommodate as many delegates as your live streaming platform can support.
Live streaming also helps increase the bottom line of both in-person hybrid events and those that have moved to an online-only model. The reason is that you can attract thousands of attendees to your conference, online expo, or industry symposium without incurring any of the usual associated costs.
For instance, there’s no need to hire a bigger venue, nor is there the need to invest in additional travel, accommodation, and catering for your keynote speakers and delegates. So you win twice, with lower backend costs and the opportunity to attract more revenue from sponsors fighting to get in front of those eyeballs.
Lastly, another benefit of live-streaming your event is that you can create an on-demand resource for those who physically attended that they can refer back to at their pleasure.
Perhaps your delegates missed an online networking session in favour of watching an industry speaker give their insights. Or perhaps your invited wedding guests couldn’t make it due to a prior engagement. No matter the reason, by making your in-person event a hybrid offering, you don’t have to suffer some of the pitfalls of the traditional events of the past.
So what are you going to need when planning a virtual or hybrid event?
+LIVE STREAMING EQUIPMENT HIRE FOR VIRTUAL & HYBRID EVENTS
Of course, it goes without saying that you’ll need to hire live-streaming equipment. In terms of what that entails, you’ll need cameras, tripods, an encoder (which translates the audio and video into a data package suitable for transmission over the internet), and all of the associated data and power cables.
While you might already have some hardware (such as a camera) capable of live streaming, it’s much better to let us supply the whole equipment stack to ensure that we can guarantee uptime during your event.
+CHOOSE FROM THE FULL SPECTRUM OF STREAMING PLATFORMS WITH ON TOUR EVENTS
Of course, hiring all of the equipment is only one piece of the jigsaw puzzle. Next, you’ll need to choose the right live streaming platform. Your choice will depend largely on the nature of your event.
For instance, if you are streaming a personal event that you would usually invite family and friends to, such as a wedding or a birthday party, then a social media streaming outlet such as Facebook Live might make the most sense. By contrast, if you are hosting a paid-for virtual conference, you’ll almost certainly want to opt for a paid-for premium solution such as Vimeo, Wirecast, or IBM Cloud Video.
+HIRE ADDITIONAL EVENT EQUIPMENT FROM THE UK'S LEADING EVENT PRODUCTION COMPANY
It doesn’t matter whether you are hosting a virtual event or a hybrid version of an in-person gathering; you will likely need to hire additional equipment.
For instance, you’ll likely need streaming-friendly microphones, stage hire, set design services, specialist streaming lighting, and LED screens, to name but a few of the items you might need for a professional or corporate event. Even for personal events such as weddings, you’ll need most of the above-mentioned equipment hire services.
Here at On Tour Events, we can supply everything you could ever need for an event. From a live-streamed fashion show to an outdoor wedding, there’s no event type we can’t handle.
+SECURE A LIVE STREAMING VENUE FOR YOUR VIRTUAL & HYBRID EVENTS
One of the hardest parts of live streaming a virtual or hybrid event is finding a well-equipped venue for the occasion. You need blazing-fast Wi-Fi, along with an area to build out your set or stage and rig all of the live streaming equipment.
The good news is that we have this venue set up and ready to go for you already. That’s right; we have our very own live streaming studio that is perfect for virtual events of all descriptions.
