Council Live Streaming and Webcasting

With so many council’s embracing the technology and live streaming / webcasting their council meetings there are a few major decisions every council is faced with.

The first major decision for councils is whether to produce the live stream themselves or to outsource the live streaming to a production company such as The Streaming Guys. One thing we often ask our clients to consider is the upfront cost of purchasing all of the relevant equipment and software which can be anywhere up to $50k and beyond in some cases. With the speed of technology this equipment could be out of date within 6-12 months and not to mention the need to be using it regularly in order for you to become and stay proficient as well as staying up to date with the latest technology.

One of the advantages of outsourcing is it not only removes the large up front investment but also the need for continual staff training to keep everyone up to date.

The Streaming Guys are constantly at the forefront with the latest technology so we can ensure we deliver a first class production every time.
