Live Streaming Checklist

What You Need to Know When Live Streaming Your Event

You only have one chance to get your event right. This might seem obvious, but there are a lot of moving parts and this is important to remember if you plan to live streaming your event. Why? The quality of your live stream (and the video/audio archives after the event) are entirely dependent on the decisions that you make before your event.

If you plan accordingly, you’ll have a quality webcast and recording you can repurpose for promoting next year’s event, as an educational tool, or for your archives. If you don’t? The video will come out poorly, you might run into technical difficulties trying to stream it, things that could have been easily avoided if you followed our simple checklist.
It’s very easy to make a mistake will recording your event, especially if you have no prior experience and don’t know which questions to ask. Generally, unless your budget’s prohibitive, hiring a live streaming vendor is a worthwhile investment. It’s a bit like buying insurance — the complexities and details associated with setting up a live stream are handled the pros, freeing you to manage other logistics of running your show.
No matter what you decide, we want you to be as prepared as possible for your event. To that end, we’ve put together a list of everything that you need to think about. We hope this helps you when searching for a live streaming vendor or if you decide to webcast the event yourself.
