This is an interesting topic which I will like to share with you on some of the details and fiction or so-called “myths” based on Live streaming events and the services available in the market. By now, most people regardless of age group are able to watch streaming events using their smartphones, tablets, or laptops to watch their favorite show. Whereas working professionals will have to take part in Live streaming events such as live streaming workshops, live webinar events, or townhall meetings on live streaming platforms. Nowadays even students will need to attend online lessons which are live streams for their daily lessons.
As the matter of fact, live streaming platforms have virtually become part of our lives and I am not surprised if there is misleading information circulating on the internet that talks about live streaming services which is the current trend in digital communication.
First of all, the concept of live streaming varies in different forms and there are many software and platforms available in the market for consumers to communicate online with one another via the internet. Common platforms like Zoom, Skype, Facetime, and WhatsApp video call have considered as the basic form of Live streaming services available for group communications online but there are other forms of live streaming services which has catered for hybrid events for business, marketing, and entertainment events.
A few good examples are News broadcasts that have set in virtual studios that can display virtual and CGI graphics to enhance the viewer’s experience. Variety shows such as music concerts, art performances, and talk shows are often staged in the studio environment and you can often see stunning 3D or virtual graphic effects on the stage background during the event.
Already in the market, there are many types of live streaming services available such as multicamera events webcast services, Live webinar or Interactive Live Audience webinar, 3D virtual studio set production service which science fiction or animation movies have created and the list goes on.
When it comes to the fiction or “myths” of live streaming services, it is not true that you will need to spend a lot of money to hire a professional video studio house to set up the live streaming event for a corporate or personal agenda. It actually depends on your event requirements and how you want the event to be done. From my personal experience, corporate events can range from a few thousand dollars to tens of thousands depending on the event requirements and how long is the event host. Compared to a standard trade show event or Townhall meeting, the total cost in the event setup, catering, logistics, and other miscellaneous can easily go up to be more than ten or twenty thousand dollars for a single event.
Thus, it is good to clearly understand how live streaming works and how to do the video studio house charge you to set up live streaming events for your corporate or personal requirements.
