Recording a talk show with four hd cameras.

We work with you to create a live interactive “TV show” that viewers will “tune in” on your website or Facebook page to watch it.  We can use up to four HD cameras and include multiple live “in studio” guests or virtual guests.  There is also the ability to include Power Point slides, web pages, videos, and pictures.  Real time statistics are available so you can know how many viewers are watching.

I run a one man production department in Howard County. Last month I needed help with three different productions. All three were live events, two were half day events all were streamed live. He also taped and edited them into a final production with the finished product placed on YouTube within 24 hours. All of these events Marty had less then 7 days notice to prepare. Marty was always on time and prepared for what ever was needed to complete the assignment. He not only worked closely with me but with many other staff members to assure that the events went smoothly. Marty’s professionalism and experience has made him my go-to guy for all my future needs.

The live stream can be free and open to the public, password protected, or pay per view.  It’s easy for people to watch.  They just go to your website or Facebook page.  There’s no additional programs or software to install.  No signing up.  No pre registration.

One of the best features about doing a live show is that there’s no post production or editing.  The finished video goes from live to on-demand within a day.  All of the camera switching and insertion of graphics is done in real time.  The recorded version can be syndicated to iTunes, Vimeo, YouTube, Facebook, Google +, Usream, Soundcloud, your website, and so many other services, making you and your videos easy for people to discover.

Producing and broadcasting on a regular schedule is important to keep viewers coming back.   As you build both a live audience and syndicated viewers, you have the ability to sell advertising and sponsorships.

The versatility and scalability of webcasting allows you to reach a global audience 24/7.  It’s perfect for training sessions, conferences, meetings, special events, video podcasts, and shows.  Increase your business by enhancing your footprint and reputation in the community via webcasting.  In a few years, webcasting will be mainstream.  Reap the benefits by doing it now, before your competition.
