In September/October 2020, Euro-Pacific live streamed over 25 days of live events, and we’re not talking about a Zoom conference. These were full production events with multiple cameras, multiple locations, and pre-recorded video inserts during the events. Also, did I mention that we did it while being COVID safe with minimal direct interaction with participants. We used both live cameras (with a live operator) and remote cameras (operated remotely). Our event productions livestream to multiple platforms including in all cases our primary platform Vimeo, and also Facebook Live, YouTube, LinkedIn, Twitch and Periscope. We have the capability to live onto five platforms simultaneously.
For a more complicated livestream, we use the Livestream Studio 6 live switcher and control panel that allows us to have up to five remote locations connected to the stream as guest inputs, and an unlimited amount of live cameras at the base location. We can also insert unlimited video playback, live switching of cameras and remote sources, while adding lower third titles, overlay graphics and still images. We also have full audio mixing capabilities for all sources. The live stream to the platform is only restricted by the available internet connection, but in most cases we can stream at 1080P or 720P with no buffering. We can also stream at 2k/4k with the correct internet connections. We also make a full bandwidth recording on site, so if there is an issue with the live connection we still have the full high-quality recording of the event to upload.
Depending on your needs, the Vimeo platform allows us to add password protection, embed permissions, or create a private hub with SSO for your internal teams.
