"Any good broadcast, not just an Olympic broadcast, should have some history, should have something that's offbeat, quirky, humorous, and where called for it, should have journalism, and judiciously it should also have commentary. That's my ideal."
-Bob Costas
All About
Webcasting
Most people do not know what production services are, so we thought we would give you an idea of what our production managers do here at MMG. We asked Joan Fiddle-Ferder, our senior production manager, to give us an example:


JOAN'S CORNER

"Everyone needs more traffic on their website! MMG has been called upon for years to assist clients with webcasting projects for marketing purposes or for internal communication."

Most people who call us are unclear how to do a webcast, so here's what Joan recommends: "Here's what you need; a video camera, which can be a full body camera, a camera phone, or your computer, as long as you have a Firewire connection and port, which is important to connect the camera to the computer. Newer cameras have Firewire connections. In addition, you will need a video server and the appropriate location that offers good lighting and sound to record."

Where does MMG come in? "We provide you with logistics, scheduling, hardware, and the expert freelance technicians to carry this out, no matter your location, domestic or as far away as Slovakia, for example, where we are working with a corporate client for a July webcast."

"Call us for your next webcast, we will be happy to share our knowledge."

The Benefits of Event Webcasting

Staging Connections
Webcasting as a tool in the event production kit has really reached maturity in the last couple of years. With the advent of 4G remote connections for cameras and audio, high bandwidth web connections in venues and fast internet at home and the office, webcasts are no longer the dull, static 'let's all watch a video together' presentations they once were. They are now dynamic, interactive platforms delivering multiple types of content at once; both immersive and inspiring. Webcasts can be a pleasure to participate in.
Creating an interactive and engaging webcast
Customized Design
Today's webcasts are built in their own customized HTML designed 'skin' that can house not only the event or brand's graphics but multiple video, chat and social media widgets. The viewer feels as if they are looking at an extension of the host's website and can interact in real-time with the event. 
Live Chat for Real Engagement
Social media feeds such as Twitter can really enhance your webcast. Allowing your audience, both present and remote, to engage with your presentation enables a personal connection to the speaker and the topic. Proprietary widgets enable a live chat feed for the event participants only, meaning a web viewer can ask questions of a presenter and have it answered in real time. Make sure your guests use the same hashtag and you may even find your event 'trending'.
