Broadcast your message with live event streaming services
Hundreds, thousands or millions of viewers with live event streaming services
Live video is also excellent for driving engagement and is enjoying a boom right now because viewers are taken with the live experience.
Mediapolis specializes in turnkey, live, multi-cam HD production for TV and online broadcasting (webcasting) of live events. Before webcasts, webinars were a simple way to communicate your message audience and answer questions. But without live video of the presenter, the experience was easy for the audience to tune out. Live streaming or webcasting gives you an effective way to connect with your audience, even when the presenter can’t physically be in front of the audience. Higher engagement is achieved with a live streaming experience.
FULL SERVICE WEBCASTING SYSTEM AND SOLUTION
Full-service webcasting includes a skilled technician who coordinates all aspects of the Webcast from start to finish. During event production, we bring everything you need for the webcast. A high-speed Internet connection is the only requirement.
Mediapolis is a complete live event streaming services provider. Our professional, affordable streaming production service is capable of delivering HD live streams for any type of event. Choose between a single or multiple cameras.
A single camera is the most basic way to stream an event. It is ideal for capturing a single presenter. If that presenter is stationary during the event we can also incorporate their presentation slides within the live stream. We can live switch between the presenter and the slides or frame the sources as a picture-in-picture where the slides and the presenter occupy portions of the screen. The ability to produce live events with a solo crew person is a huge competitive advantage because it reduces the live streaming costs for our clients.
With multiple cameras your event takes on a higher degree of professionalism and viewer engagement. Multiple cameras provide audiences with the best viewer experience. Multi camera setups work well with panels, conversations, performances or demonstrations. When only one camera is used with multiple speakers, the camera needs to pan from one speaker to the other. Multiple cameras eliminate this awkward camera movement. Multicam setups requires more planning and lighting to make sure the footage from each camera matches. But with multiple cameras, you instantly create more visually dynamic and interesting scene.
Multi-camera setups have two, three or four cameras and require a bigger crew and more equipment to capture the angles. Depending on the scale of the production, the crew may consist of camera operators, a technical director, a sound engineer and an encoding engineer. If the production is rather simple some crew members may do more than one job.
During the event, the director is able to switch between different camera positions and angles. For multi-camera setups where the director needs to communicate with the whole crew, we use a wireless intercom system. The talkback function allows the technical director to coordinate with camera operator via headset. Other features of the live event include:
- Lower screen graphics (titles and logos)
- Media insertion (videos, audio, graphics)
- Picture in picture
- Live PowerPoint insertion
- Video switching with transitions
- HD cameras
- Full HD recording
- High quality audio
- Optional telephone interface to capture high quality audio from a telephone
Set your event apart from the ordinary with design elements that engage the audience. We can custom build show openers, bumpers, titles and other content that brands your show and makes it sizzle.
Your audience can be dispersed worldwide and watch your event directly from any internet-connected device, including computers, tablets, and smartphones. Clients, executives, fans, and customers can view a high quality live stream of the event in real time without having to be at the location, saving valuable time, energy and enabling you to reach viewers you would have never reached before.

Your live event can be embedded to play on multiple websites – your website, clients’ website, sponsors’ website, or a customized landing page where you can control the video player’s size, background, layout, branding and even incorporate interactive chat.
At the end of the day, you’ll be given event analytics with real-time viewer profile data, so you’ll know your audience’s demographic, size, duration of viewership, access point, and more. Afterwards, you’ll have access to a video on demand (VOD) recording. Live video produces a recorded asset that is easy to edit for use in other projects. You can even monetize your video stream with pay per view, subscriptions, advertising, shopping carts and with other options.
A time-lapse of the event can also be recorded.
We’ll work with your team to build the right package with the features you want and need. Then our experts will set it all up for you and see it through from start to finish.
Every live event streaming needs a content delivery network (CDN) that provides the platform and the servers to reach your audience. The CDN options range from free services such as YouTube Live and Facebook Live to more business-directed services such as Ustream or Livestream that let you go “white label” and completely brand the service as your own. We can setup and manage your YouTube channel so that you can stream live from your channel. We can also live stream to your Facebook page.
