Things will not always be like this, but while they are, businesses, schools, and organizations will need remote and virtual solutions. We need to be doing things virtually, or at least, having conversations about it.
Smell-O-Vision still hasn’t been invented but technology has gotten us to the point where we can get 90% of the full in-person experience through our computer screens and devices. Well-organized, fun, and interesting virtual events have shown to increase company morale and provide more engagement.
The key to having a great experience online is quality pictures and quality sound. Apple has always promoted the “work from anywhere” model and lead the way with their latest WWDC20 event on June 22, 2020. They made their announcements in style with green screens, graphics, great sound, and the icing on the cake was the 4K resolution stream. The only thing that was missing was the human element of the audience reaction. The human element is a large element and an important one, but until we can all be in a room together again, let’s work on making it awesome.
Here are some ways that you can make virtual events work for your business.
Video Conference Meeting Mediation
Virtual meetings on Zoom, GotoWebinar, Skype, or Google Hangouts, are popular but adding certain media to your presentation can be limiting or intimidating. Meeting organizers or planners do not have to carry the weight of the technical demands on their own. This can be handled by video conference mediation professionals which help with the technical aspect of the meeting. We can design custom backgrounds, provide music, add sound effects, video, and other graphics.
Virtual events allow people to attend important events and meetings from anywhere they have an internet connection. Online Weddings, funerals, sports, and award banquets are becoming more and more prevalent. Virtual events allow businesses to invite more guests, save time, save on travel expenses, while also reducing their carbon footprint.
Remote events also do not have to be live events. You can stream a pre-produced piece use “YouTube Premieres“.
YouTube Premieres lets you and your viewers watch and experience a new video together – like a movie or TV show premiere. You schedule a video upload and then create a public watch-page to share in advance of the premiere.
Your audience can interact through Comments and Live Chat on the public watch page, even before the premiere starts, where you can also interact with your audience.
Webcasting is not new but it certainly has gotten more accessible and affordable in the last few years. Gone are the days of having to pay costly streaming companies for their platform and bandwidth. Any YouTube account can be ready with a few clicks and a 24 hour waiting period. We stream on the “studio” platform via webcam or multiple Blackmagic URSA cameras with additional streaming devices and software. Best of all, there’s no time or viewer limit.
