How to Stream a Live Event

Article Featured Image

How do you stream a live event? That’s quite the loaded question, isn’t it? It’s very complex and you want to do it right—on budget, and without fail. And there are so many variables— from the type of event to the type of viewer—that it’s easy to end up with an inefficient workflow or the wrong equipment for the job. 

This year, what we’ve done is create a really, really powerful Superguide all about live streaming, with contributions from some of the best and brightest people and companies in the business today. These folks want to earn your business by showing you great tips, great tools, and great examples, and that’s exactly what you should expect from a Streaming Media Superguide—the ultimate, jaw-dropping resource, built to help you do your job better.

To make this guide even more “super,” our editorial department has added a “recommended reading and viewing” section to help you dig even deeper in your search for success with live streaming. On the back page of this Superguide, you’ll also find contact information for the companies that put this together as well as links to their Streaming Media Industry Sourcebook directory listings, which will give you a comprehensive look at who they are, what they do, and all the press and editorial coverage they ever got from Streaming Media, going back to the year 2000. How solid is that?
