Live Event Webcasting
Webcasting, or live streaming, is the delivery of real-time video, audio, and other content streamed to multiple online devices at the same level of quality as a traditional TV broadcast. With dramatic increases in bandwidth capacity, live streaming is growing at an explosive rate and demand for video is skyrocketing across many platforms.
Live streaming is used for various purposes including:

Live streaming boosts an organization’s marketing power and enhances its reach. It provides an unparalleled opportunity to reach large audiences and target new customers. It also generates content that can live on-demand in perpetuity. In the rush to create content, however, it’s critical that quality doesn’t suffer. Shoddy content and poor user experiences can be worse than no content at all.
That’s where Think-a-Tron comes in. By combining our extensive experience in broadcast TV with the latest in media technology, we create professionally produced webcasts that offer remote audiences an interactive, broadcast-quality viewing experience. To do this smoothly and consistently requires a high level of expertise and technical skills, and above all, a focus on our clients’ needs.
