ON TOUR EVENTS TALKS ''STREAMING SERVICES' AND SHARES SOME USEFUL INFORMATION
UK-WIDE STREAMING SERVICES FROM ON TOUR EVENTS
The digital age has progressed to the point where live streaming your event is no longer a nice additional feature – it’s become a necessity. Live streaming has several advantages, including but not limited to developing a global reach for your event, improving accessibility for those limited by their health or finances, and leaving the restrictions of your venue behind.
No matter what event you’re planning, live streaming with On Tour Events will dramatically increase the impact of your guests’ experience. But before we convince you why you should choose us, let’s look at all you should be thinking about before and during the hiring of a live streaming service company such as On Tour Events.
+CONSIDERATIONS FOR LIVE STREAMING YOU UK EVENT
Firstly, you need to start by considering why you want to live stream your event. For instance, who is your intended audience? How many more people can you reach by streaming? These are all key considerations that will go into aspects such as your choice of equipment and streaming platform.
Remember, live streaming allows you to reach a global audience without the need for massive venues. It is one of the easiest ways to make your event accessible to as many individuals as possible, all from the comfort of their own homes! For example, those unable to attend a private event (such as a wedding or funeral) can watch from home, keeping them included in milestone events.
Your next step is to consider why you should make use of a professional live streaming provider. The simple answer is: if your event is worth live-streaming, then it’s worth live-streaming it well. By using On Tour Event’s live streaming services, you are guaranteed professional-quality footage that you can beam live around the world and continue to use for years after the event has taken place.
Your event’s venue should be the next thing you evaluate. If you’re hosting an online-only event, you could make use of our live streaming studio. It’s all set up with every piece of equipment you could need, and ready for you to use at short notice (subject to availability of course!).
If you’re going for a hybrid event with in-person and online attendees, then you’ve got to ensure that the venue has enough room for physical guests and the associated camera equipment.
Next, you’ll want to consider which streaming platform you wish to use. You might want to go for the familiarity and convenience of social media streaming tools such as YouTube, Facebook Live, or Periscope. For more personal events, such as weddings or birthdays, these may suit you better as they are accessible to those who aren’t necessarily tech gurus. Moreover, most attendees are likely to have social media profiles already.
By contrast, if you’re hosting a paid-for professional corporate event, you might want to opt for purpose-built platforms that guarantee uptime such as Twitch, YouNow, or premium paid-for solutions such as Vimeo. Your chosen platform needs to match the event. No matter which streaming platform you decide to use, On Tour Events can provide industry-leading event services.
Now that your primary considerations have been taken care of, let’s look at the type of events that can benefit from live streaming services.
+LIVE STREAM YOUR UK CONFERENCE
When hosting an in-person conference, your sales are limited to your venue capacity. Having the option to attend via a live stream is a way to do away with that glass ceiling and reach as many people as possible.
The best part, you can achieve this unlimited increase in audience size for minimal associated cost. There’s no need for additional expenses such as larger venue hire, organising additional accommodation for delegates, or ramping up your catering spend. Keeping these costs at a minimum enables you to invest in other areas, such as stage hire, set design, or even in higher-profile guest speakers.
Streaming your conference event also gives you the opportunity to multiply its conference’s impact by having the footage available on demand for later release. The footage can be used to advertise future iterations of your event, which gives prospective attendees a taste of what your event is all about and encourages them to join you next year.
+LIVE STREAMING FOR WEDDING
Wedding events are as special as it gets for all of those involved, and it isn’t something that family or close friends will ever willingly miss out on. Live streaming of weddings has grown in popularity over the last few years because it includes anyone unable to participate in the special day, or unique moments such as the “I do” in-person.
Online guests may be living abroad, unwell, or unable to attend due to public health measures. The best part? The live stream recording that encapsulates the most intimate and memorable details of the wedding will be available afterwards; allowing you to revisit it years to come.
+LIVE STREAMING FOR FUNERALS
Funerals give family members and friends the chance to collectively feel mourning, compassion, grief, and healing, all while celebrating the lives of their loved ones. Live streaming creates a lasting memorial of the event, which can bring solace to those who may want to reflect on proceedings at a much less sensitive time.
Live streaming also allows those who are elderly, infirm or living too far away to travel to pay their respects to someone they held close to their heart.
+LIVE STREAMING FOR CHURCH SERVICES
Live streaming church services has become the norm for many church congregations in recent years, even more so since the COVID-19 outbreak forever changed our lives back in early 2020. But the trend is set to stay well into the future, considering the ever-increasing average age of churchgoers.
By streaming, church services become available to anyone who can’t attend in person, such as those with vulnerable health, those not mobile enough, or even those away on holidays.
+LIVE-STREAM YOUR UK HYBRID EVENTS
Hybrid events are becoming more popular, giving guests the option to attend in person or stream the event from their home or office. Making online viewing an option increases the potential reach of your event. It also gives your virtual attendees the flexibility to consume the event on-demand, should you wish to make that available.
High-quality live streaming is an invaluable way to stop people from missing out on your event because of avoidable problems such as excessive travel and accommodation costs, or public health restrictions.
Don’t forget On Tour Events can provide all the technical event production you could possibly need for your in-person guests, including stage hire, LED screens, event lighting, specialist lighting designed for live streaming, and sound equipment hire services along with the live streaming equipment and associated services. In other words, we’re a one-stop-shop for everything you could possibly need!
