WebCasting: to DIY or Not to DIY

Elle Kyle is a producer at AMC.

WebCasting is quickly becoming an integral part of our everyday lives.  With the advent of live technologies on social media platforms such as YouTube, Facebook, and Instagram, the layman can stream whatever he or she is doing.  One only needs a smartphone or a computer with a webcam to “go live.”

Since the technology to stream content live is so readily available, it may be tempting to forgo professional webcasting services and rig a DIY stream with your phone or computer for an event. However, if you decide to hire a professional team, AMC is here to make sure your live stream is pristine.

When you hire AMC’s professional webcasting team, they have state of the art camera equipment that will afford much higher video quality than a webcam.  They’ll also be able to provide sound recording gear, which will increase the clarity of your audio feed.  Working with our team will drastically increase the quality of your webcast.

When live streaming an event, you may want to incorporate other content into the stream such as slides, pictures, or other video content.  The AMC team will be able to supply a TriCaster, which generates the video feed from your event.  You can download prerecorded video and other content onto the TriCaster, and your operator can seamlessly transition between the live feed and your prerecorded content.

Whether your event is a large-scale gala or an intimate bar mitzvah, AMC has a webcasting package to meet your needs.  We can accommodate small events with 1 or 2 cameras, large events with up to 10 cameras, and anything in between.  We can stream to any platform, and we can even provide you with a password-protected private link if you would like to limit your audience.

At the end of your event, AMC gives you the footage from the live stream.  Or if you’d like, we can edit the footage into one professional video for you.  Either way you receive high-quality video footage of your event when you webcast with AMC.
