Here are some frequently asked questions (FAQs):
A webcast works on the basis of streaming media. A webcast is a "one to many" option best used for presenting live video, audio, and slides to a large online audience. A webinar uses a web-based software platform to enable smaller groups of people to meet online for training or collaboration.
Your computer needs to have at least one of the most widely distributed webcast players. The good news is that the basic versions of some or all of the players were preinstalled when you purchased your computer or are available at any time as FREE downloads. See our Webcast Support page to get up and running in just a few minutes.
For most webcasts, we recommend starting to plan for your webcast when you are planning your event. Planning ahead will help you choose the right location and services for your production. If you are further into the process, we can still help you with your webcasting needs. Two weeks advance notices helps ensure that there is adequate time to produce your webcast with the highest quality. However, if you need something sooner, contact our office and our webcast consultants can help you work through the process and determine if a live, simulated live, or on-demand webcast will best fit your needs.
