Live Streaming of Wedding Ceremony
If a picture is worth a thousand words, a moving picture is worth a million.
Today’s generation has now increasingly replaced television channels and cable with Live Streaming services. Gone are the days when Live Streaming was only associated with cricket matches and concerts, when now it has hugely gained its popularity in wedding circles.
However, with the ongoing situation leading us all to call off any kind of social gatherings, weddings being one of them, we still have an option to attend a wedding after all.
Thanks to the ever-evolving technology, you can still have a big fat Indian wedding amidst the lockdown – through Live Streaming in co-ordination with Wedding Photography.
We bring you the nitty-gritty of how Live Streaming works and what you should consider when you opt for live streaming services.
But first, what exactly is Live Streaming?
Live streaming means broadcasting the function or event live to the audience with the help of internet. The media is transmitted while it is recorded, allowing viewers to watch or listen to it in real-time.
How does Live Video Streaming work?
First and foremost, you would require a technical expert to stream and air the entire event without any hiccups. Though we still haven’t reached a stage where live streaming has been fully automated, we can surely hope in the future, this process does not need our intervention. The process of live streaming begins with a camera. Whatever the camera records, a cable connected to it will carry it to the encoder system. Here, the encoder converts the entire content and airs it through the internet.
In layman’s terms, content is taken from a camera, encoded, and streamed through the internet. Voila!
Companies servicing live streaming activities have a small crew – backend team working remotely and one technician who travels to the event spot. The technician then helps with the technical set up and supports the videographer and photographer during the entire live stream process. All you need is a high-definition video camera, a good internet connection, a firm tripod, and a trusted person to handle all of this!
How to view a Live Stream?
Viewing of a live stream happens through a platform. This platform can be a social media platform or a private website platform.
Professional companies will give you a private website platform for security purposes. The custom link can then be shared in advance with family and friends across the globe, for example, you want your extended family living in Hyderabad to see your wedding happening live in Delhi, this custom link will allow you to view the wedding on the stipulated date.
The current situation has had many resorts to a Live Stream wedding of their loved ones. In Hyderabad, we have seen Live Streaming as an increasingly popular choice for weddings!
There is no hard and fast rule to the number of people who can view this live link, however, one cannot download the footage once the live stream ends. But the good part is, these links can be viewed up to a period of months, depending on the live streaming company you have chosen.
If you have a smartphone or smart device with a good internet connection, no one can miss out on anything!
Live Video Streaming has been a huge refuge to everyone who missed out on being physically present for important events.
Today, to enjoy this option, all we require is the right tools. With the variety of platforms, the highest quality Live Video Streaming experience is possible.
