Live stream, what exactly is that?
With live streaming, in many forms, you can reach people or have them come together without having to be physically together. Think of it as an interactive live TV broadcast over the internet. It’s you who decided who decide who gets to watch and participate. The possibilities are endless: You can broadcast in a protected environment, allowing the organizer to decide who can watch and who cannot. You can make your meeting interactive. You can have speakers in different locations. Numerous apps allow you to host online meetings from behind your desk. But if you want something more, you also need more. At Audiovision, we can offer you more.
The current (COVID-19) government regulations allows events on a limited scale, however, many physical gatherings are proving unfeasible due to the limited number of people in one space.
The solution? Combining a live event with a live stream! Hybrid events as we call it, part of the audience is live in the room and the rest is watching from another place. Whether at home on the couch, in the office, in another room or another building it doesn’t matter.
Through online interaction such as asking questions but also dialing in speakers or guests, you can still organize an event where all spectators are 1 group. For now, then, just not in the same location for a while.

Stream your wedding ceremony live to your family and friends! Can’t everyone attend? Then live streaming may be too option to still allow everyone to attend. This can be done with remote cameras so there is no need to have a cameraman in the room, so you can invite more people.
What do you need for a live stream?
A well-run event requires more than a laptop and a meeting app. There is a lot you need to think about. Audiovisual equipment such as cameras, microphones, and a mixing desk, for example. But also whether your internet connection has enough capacity, or how to switch from one speaker to another. Want to work with a whiteboard? Can you play movies? How do you get people to ask questions?
At AudioVision, we can take care of all your worries. We have the equipment, knowledge and experience to make your event or meeting run smoothly. Whether you’re just looking for the right audiovisual resources, or want to be completely unburdened in our in-house studio. We are happy to help.
