Improving live video streaming!

Communicating in an effective manner is important in all fields today. It is impossible for a professional or a skilled labourer to work in total isolation, without relying on someone for assistance, guidance or supervision. Even a doctor at times requires emergency lessons from his mentor or from an expert living in another part of the world. That is why video streaming solutions have become a rage now-a-days.

Improving live video streamingPeople are no longer relying on just verbal or written sources of information. Communication is no longer restricted to just telephone calls emails and video conferencing. People are interested in inviting people in any part of the world to be a part of their concert, demonstration, webcast, seminar or lectures and that is where video streaming plays such an important role.

The quality of video streaming however is preferable to be of top quality, and here are some ways one can achieve the best:

  • Use Ethernet cables instead of Wi-Fi connections to get internet. A hardwired or physical internet connection will always enable a faster internet speed, and this improves the quality of the streaming considerably.
  • If you cannot opt for Ethernet cable-fed internet connections, especially if you rely on your smart phone a good deal, then try and stay as close as possible to the wi-fi source so that the waves can be received without any dispersion or interference.
  • If you are someone who live streams his or her content multiple times, or has a repetitive message, then consider backing up all data, not just for storage purposes, but because you can create a playlist of all the topics or items you have repeat, or create a Voice on Demand (VoD) version of streaming.
  • Always plan ahead; think of the content you want to include in your live stream so that it’s crisp, attractive and well appreciated by the audience.

A person is not downloading a pre-recorded show and viewing it; one can in fact be a part of the live event by streaming the live telecast on their laptop, notepad or even on their smart phone, as long their software supports such media and they have sufficient internet bandwidth.
