Why am I telling you?  Live event production combined with live streaming (to web or broadcast) not only ups the production value of your event it can even help you increase your revenue.

Streaming gives you the ability to broadcast live to millions of people worldwide. The cost of live video streaming has plummeted in recent years allowing for venue owners and event managers to be their own network TV stations.  Also available is Pay-Per-View broadcasts for your event.  This lets you monetize the act of broadcasting your event live, adding to the revenue streams you already have in place.  By providing a pay-per-view live video stream of your event your paid attendance can far exceed your venues physical capacity.

So when should you broadcast your event live?  That depends on the nature of your event.  If your event is limited, like a one night only concert, play or wedding, you may wish to stream it online for people who could not attend.  In addition, we can record the broadcast simultaneously as it is being broadcast in real time, allowing you to repurpose the event as marketing material for future events or DVD sales.
