What is Webcasting?

Aug 14, 2015 by Steve Rick in  Live Events

How can you get Jim in Dallas all of the information he needs from a business meeting even though he’s hundreds of miles away? The days of sending large files recapping the meeting are over. Now, Jim can sit in on the meeting in real time even though he’s not physically in the building. How? Live webcasts.

What is Webcasting?

A webcast means that you are taking media (whether it’s a corporate meeting or any other live event) and broadcasting it in real time over the internet. The process involves streaming which sends the information to computers or other electronic devices without having to save and send the files later on.

How Does it Work?

Put into simple terms, audio or visual content can be transferred to a streaming software from a video camera or speaker. The content is then encoded and sent to a special server where it is delivered. This is how Jim in Dallas can log on to his computer and have access to the meeting as it takes place.

With webcasting services from CitiView Audio Visual, your employees will never have to miss a meeting again. We offer multi-camera switching, picture-in-picture and content delivery so you can captivate your audience whether they are down the street or across the sea.

For High Resolution Audio, Does The Format Really Matter?

Jun 08, 2015

MP3, FLAC, WAV. does it really make a difference? When it comes to listening to music, high-resolution audio is the way to go. But what’s more important, the quality of the gear used to record or the format?

Before we get into the details, it’s vital to point out that sound quality is determined by the quality of the gear used to record and the skill and expertise of the audio engineers. If you have bad equipment and the audio engineer doesn’t have much experience, chances are the audio won’t sound very good.

You can think of it all in terms of a high-definition television. Look at the difference between a sporting event or a movie broadcasted in HD and then compare it to a black and white film from the 60s. Even if you transferred the old movie to a 1080 Blu-ray, it wouldn’t make the film any clearer and the same holds true for audio.

When it comes down to it, high-resolution audio files are more expensive than standard definition files, so is it worth it? There are a few things to consider before making a decision:

  • Do you have high quality speakers or headphones?
  • Is the recording good enough to benefit from high resolution mastering?
  • Will the audience or listeners be able to tell the difference?

At CitiView Audio Visual, our expert audio engineers are highly skilled and have years of experience and training. We know exactly how to make your event sound spectacular and reach your entire audience so give us a call today at 212-632-5196 to learn more!
