Webcast Solutions - 6 Things That Matter The Most
We live in an era where digital communication has been dominated by Zoom calls, webinars, and Microsoft teams; yet WEBCASTS or live streams have stood the test of time with a growing significant role to play in the new normal - as the pandemic lifts. Appreciated for their ability to transform, reach and engage any event into a widely viewed online event, webcasts are a proven beneficial technological requirement across many organizations today.
However, in order to successfully launch a webcast, it is necessary to rely on the expertise of a webcast solutions provider who specializes in producing virtual events. If you don't know what to look for when assessing your partnership options, you can end up with an unpleasant experience.
Whether you're planning on a Virtual Career Fair, Corporate Events, Investor Relations Event or looking to take an event online; here are some qualities which matter the most when evaluating webcast solutions:
Scalability - Accommodate Large Audiences
Webcasting an event that is either public or to a private group with event registrants, your organization should have a solution that scales to accommodate to audiences of any size without having caps on the number of viewers or get charged per viewer. When searching for a webcast solutions provider, ask about the number of attendees they can reliably stream at any given time.

Seamless-Secure Online Registration
Registration should be be easy! One of the best options is to use a platform that is secure, has registration, viewing and event participation - all in one. This platform should be able to confirm registrations, send out direct invitations or links with reminder emails as the event date nears.
First things first - your content must be engaging. Encourage your presenters to use animated graphics, videos and PowerPoints that stand out. To produce and deliver an engaging experience to your online audience, include things like polls, Q&A’s, trivia, survey and social media integration that allows your viewers to engage or participate. This also makes them feel heard. When using interactive tools, ensure that your platform is both desktop and mobile friendly.
