How to Live Stream Virtual Conferences 04 February 2021

How to Live Stream Virtual Conferences

 

Hosting remote events have become quite popular over the past few years. Both global organizations and streaming enthusiasts have migrated to virtual conferences and live streams to keep up communications with remote employees/global viewers from all corners of the world. In this blog, we’re going to talk about how to live stream virtual conferences and how to plan a virtual event of your own during this pandemic.

 

How to Live Stream a Virtual Conference

 

Streaming a virtual conference is quite simple if you have planned your content beforehand and opted for a professional cloud media server! All you need is stable internet connection and decent streaming equipment. So, here you go- the basic steps to live stream virtual conferences. 

 

 

1. Choose a Professional Live Streaming Platform

Opting for a professional live server will give you a leverage over other free consumer-grade platforms available on the internet. A live streaming server like Muvi  Live Server lets you stream live conferences/meetings with low latency. Also, its VoD option comes in handy if you’re hosting a virtual event because it allows you to upload the stream for employees who either missed the event and can watch it again.

 

2. Good Live Streaming Equipment

In order to live stream events in a professional way, you require some streaming equipment like:

 

  • High-quality video recording camera
  • A microphone
  • Proper lighting equipment (if shooting under low light conditions)
  • Portable Wi-Fi Device or the Internet
  • A tripod
  • Audio mixer (not compulsory)

 

However, it’s not always possible to get professional video recording cameras to live stream virtual events. Go for any decent camera or microphone depending on your budget or technical expertise. However, it’s always a good idea to invest in good quality streaming equipment as they can be used for a lifetime, so you will definitely see a nice return on your investment if you are hosting paid virtual events or live streaming holiday events.

 

3. Steady Internet Connection 

To broadcast your live virtual conferences, you will be needing a steady internet connection with good upload speed. Ideal upload speed is 1MB per second and greater. It is always a good idea to test your upload speed for live streaming before you start to actually live stream. There are many tools available on the internet for this purpose. The easiest and the most popular way is to check it out online at speedtest.net.

For more information on the apt upload speed for live streaming check out our blog Good Upload Speed for Live Streaming.

 

4. Plan your Content in Advance

If you are thinking of live streaming to a remote audience, you should always plan your content in advance. Things like choosing your topic for live streaming or choosing speakers for creating workshops, should be done well head in advance.

It’s a good idea to include Q&As in remote conferences. They are actually great for making your live virtual event more engaging. You just have to let attendees know how questions should be submitted beforehand.
