Live Streaming Events In the SF Bay Area At The Last Minute
If you’re in the difficult position of watching your live event plans fold in the wake of the coronavirus, don’t panic. You do have another option: live streaming. Whether you’re holding a business meeting, conference, presentation or any other type of event, we can help you go digital.
Choosing to stream your event greatly reduces coronavirus exposure risk which is the most important concern. However, it also preserves your hard work by enabling you to run your event, simply inviting your guests to log in remotely. Guests can sign in using a number of web applications, including Zoom, Google Hangouts, Skype and more. The most important aspect to remember is that quality can suffer if it is not streamed correctly.
Live Streaming Events Requires The Right Equipment
We are poised to help with this unique situation facing the world. We’re live streaming pros with all of the necessary equipment to digitize your vision.
Whether you are in San Francisco, the East Bay, Palo Alto or San Jose – one thread remains the same. You need the right gear if you want your stream to look professional. Simply having your keynote speaker at home in front of a webcam will not inspire or bring about the confidence that your brand requires.
Most computers suffer from very low-quality webcams, even the latest 2020 Apple computers. This is because they suffer from data constraints on low bandwidth cables.
In order to achieve a professional look, you need high-quality cinema cameras, professional lighting, and proper microphones. You also need a fast and reliable internet connection, that is not based on Wi-Fi, but rather a physical ethernet cable.
Whichever company you book to help you with live streaming, ensure that their equipment is up to modern and professional standards, to guarantee a smooth and enjoyable live stream experience that will make your guests feel like they are really “in the room.”
Don’t Cancel Your Event Because Of The Coronavirus
If there’s any way to help you avoid a full cancellation, we’re dedicated to the task. This goes for existing clients with events already on our calendar and potential new clients scrambling for solutions.
It may be disappointing to have to forego getting everyone together, but it keeps your audience and presenters safe. Additionally, you can ensure that information is properly communicated and disseminated amongst your team without putting them at undue risk through livestreaming.
If you’re also having venue problems, don’t hesitate to reach out. Together, we can look for solutions, as we have many venue partners in San Francisco, the Peninsula, the North Bay and more. We can assemble a “skeleton crew” of the presenters, in-house team and AV team that dramatically lowers the risk that would happen in a full-blown live event. Furthermore, we can all work diligently to wipe down equipment, surfaces, microphones and maintain a clean, sanitary work environment.
Together we can get through this and at the same time help you create content that can be re-shared, re-hosted and used for further internal or external uses down the road. There are definitely un-intended benefits to capturing a professional meeting production!
How To Find A Livestreaming Event Vendor In San Francisco And Beyond
If you’re within our reach in California, we urge you to give us a call right away. We’re working around the clock to accommodate the needs of professional clients. This goes for new clients and of course those we have an existing relationship with. We look forward to working together on this!
If you’re outside the San Francisco Bay Area area, we encourage you to search for live streaming event vendors near you, or still get in touch if you prefer! Our team has traveled from California to New York to help companies with live streaming services over the past several years.
We echo the sentiment of health experts who are cautioning all of us to remain calm during this trying time. Remember the tips they’ve shared, which include frequent hand washing and avoiding touching your face when out in public. Avoid unnecessary handshakes, and perhaps deploy the classic “bow” technique from our brothers and sisters in the east.
We know this is serious, and we’d like to help. Regardless of whether you choose Diamond Sonic or another vendor, we are just thankful that you are taking the right steps to keep everyone safe.
Live streaming feels so much more productive than watching so many of our clients and colleagues pull the plug on their events. If you have any questions at all, please feel free to get in touch. We are happy to provide free consultations on any upcoming event plans you may have.
