The Environmentally Responsible Side of Webcasting

Posted by Chris Fasano on Aug 31, 2017 12:02:00 PM

In today’s increasingly global workforce, many companies rely on streaming technology such as webcasting to communicate with employees, partners, and other stakeholders cost efficiently while reducing their corporate travel budget. Indeed, webcasting is an effective, fiscally responsible communications choice.

A lesser-discussed benefit of webcasting is its positive impact on the environment – specifically, its ability to help companies reduce their carbon footprint.

It’s well known that emissions from cars, planes, and other transportation vehicles contain carbon dioxide and substances that harm the environment, and scientists have shown the direct effect such emissions have on global warming. Reducing business travel goes a long way toward decreasing a company’s carbon footprint.

Live webcasting is an ideal alternative to the meetings, conferences, and events that enterprises traditionally have conducted face to face, such as annual sales meetings, company all-hands, town halls, investor days, and product launches, among many others.

Video webcasting delivers a rich user experience that people can access in real time from anywhere. Additionally, webcasting has the potential to raise attendance at an event and, in doing so, expand the reach of corporate messaging.

Another environmentally friendly benefit of webcasting is that it minimizes the production and waste of paper and other presentation materials. A webcast makes the presentation and related content available for download. Attendees generally print the materials only as needed.

Webcasting also helps companies conserve energy, decreasing or eliminating the electricity, gas, and other energy resources that would’ve been required for a large, in-person event.

Protecting the environment and promoting sustainable business practices have become core initiatives for companies all over the world. Through reducing their carbon footprint, decreasing energy consumption, and minimizing waste production, more and more enterprises are embedding “green” initiatives into their operations and transparently doing their part to further social responsibility.

When Self-Service Webcasting Won’t Do

Posted by Daniel Roche on Mar 9, 2017 12:30:00 PM

A do-it-yourself webcasting solution offers businesses intuitive, easy-to-use tools to create professional-level, high-quality events using their existing technological infrastructure. Little to no technical assistance is required. However, there are still high-stakes, extra large-scale, and other live event scenarios where a managed webcast fits the bill.

In a managed webcast, everything you need before and after the event is done for you. Services, often ranging from basic assistance to premium consulting, cover everything from content planning, logistics, filming, broadcasting, and more.

End-to-End Expertise

An experienced production management team can handle every element of your webcast, including setup, presenter training, player design, and on-site video capture. You can even get assistance with obtaining makeup artists and securing voiceover or on-air talent.

Basic webcast services may include:
  1. Dedicated production management
  2.  Custom-designed event player and registration pages
  3.  Personalized event assistance for features such as Q&A, polls, slides, social media integration, and registration
  4.  Email invitation, reminder, and confirmation distribution
  5.  Presenter training
  6.  Webcast security setup
Premium consulting services may include:
  1.  Event dry run
  2.  Technical support via email or phone
  3.  Speaker training
  4.  On-site AV and technical support for your event
  5.  Post-event editing
When you’re mired in the complexity and stress that a high-stakes or high-profile webcast can arouse, you may want to turn to a managed webcast provider. Replace stress with the measure of comfort in having your webcast handled by professionals from start to finish.
