In 1969, the legendary Woodstock music festival gathered 500,000 fans to make music history. Now, imagine how many more eager fans would’ve tuned in live to experience the three days of iconic performances if streaming services had existed. Millions of people would’ve likely been able to watch in awe as Janis Joplin’s voice sent chills up their spines or reveled in the energy from The Who’s timeless set.
Now more than ever, event planners must turn to video when hosting:
Now more than ever, video streaming is positioned as an unstoppable force for business and personal use. As we’ve recently discovered during the COVID-19 pandemic, video has become a dominant means of communication and its popularity has no signs of slowing down.
Video can be used to efficiently organize training materials and effectively distribute them among employees. By creating a video website dedicated to hosting training materials, your staff’s timely completion of training videos will promote initial and continuous learning.
Do you know which platform powers the video website of major sports leagues like the NHL, NBA or MLB? How about on a smaller scale, like your local church or mom-and-pop shop? It’s unlikely you don’t (unless you work for the service provider, of course) because this was done purposefully with strategic intent.
During these times of isolation, some countries have identified churches as essential services for churchgoers. Still, accessing a place of worship can be difficult due to health and safety concerns of ministry leaders and members. As such, a virtual alternative to in-person attendance can help encourage participation from the homes of your congregation.
Musicians, singers, producers and DJs all have the opportunity to showcase their musical talents on a video platform-powered media center. By having a customized media center that compliments your unique musical style and professional brand, you can differentiate yourself from the overly saturated, competitive market that exists on freemium streaming services like YouTube and Vimeo.
Many fitness enthusiasts have made the switch from recreation centers to adopting home workout routines. As such, people have embraced technology to meet their daily fitness goals as they prefer to exercise in the comfort of their home while saving time and money on commuting and expensive club memberships or personal trainers.
COVID-19 has been the driving force behind a global shift to virtual communication for businesses, communities and even churches. Prior to social distancing protocols, organizations were free to choose to what degree they utilized video conferencing and other digital platforms to communicate. However, mandated remote work and restrictions on in-person gatherings quickly made online tools a necessity rather than a convenient alternative.
Life.Church’s Church Online is a free streaming platform that has seen a sudden rise in popularity as more than 25,000 churches have signed up for their service since March 2020. Responding quickly to the need for church service streaming as a result of the COVID-19 social distancing, Life.Church has helped countless churches maintain control by providing a space to continue sharing their message. This faith-based video platform gives churches the opportunity to embed a third-party streaming code to begin broadcasting their services, community uploads and announcements to a wide audience.
