The future of vir­tu­al events

Mul­­ti-came­ra production

In mul­­­ti-came­ra pro­duc­tion, a sce­ne is shot simul­ta­neous­ly from dif­fe­rent angles. Two or more came­ras are posi­tio­ned around the set or the prot­ago­nists. The resul­ting video foo­ta­ge is com­bi­ned in post-pro­­­duc­­­ti­on to crea­te a polished, seam­less and dyna­mic end pro­duct. At Stream­box­stu­di­os, we work with time­code gene­ra­tors so that the recor­dings can be com­bi­ned seamlessly. […]

Art and cul­tu­re in the live stream

Art and cul­tu­re thri­ve on the reac­tion of the public: applau­se at a con­cert or lec­tu­re, inte­res­ted inqui­ries during an exhi­bi­ti­on or sim­ply the purcha­se of books, pic­tures or sound recor­dings. The Stream­box­stu­di­os team deve­lo­ps indi­vi­du­al con­cepts to make rea­dings, con­certs and exhi­bi­ti­ons acces­si­ble to a wider audi­ence. The­se take into account all rele­vant technical […]

Sca­ling com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on through streaming

By using live strea­ming, you can sca­le your com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on. Live strea­ming of audio or video con­tent in real time rea­ches in par­ti­cu­lar all tho­se who, for exam­p­le, do not want to make a long jour­ney or can­not come to your face-to-face event for other pro­fes­sio­nal or pri­va­te reasons. If you offer your live­stream via a […]

Divi­ne ser­vice in the live stream

The pan­de­mic has pre­sen­ted many church com­mu­ni­ties with new chal­lenges. How are parishio­ners to be rea­ched when a lar­ge num­ber of rest­ric­tions make it impos­si­ble to meet in per­son in parish halls and for joint church ser­vices? For some paris­hes, this was an almost impos­si­ble task, as they had neither the human nor finan­cial resources […]

Enco­der

No mat­ter how rea­li­stic your sound is, no mat­ter how breath­ta­king the images, no mat­ter how varied and exci­ting the editing, wit­hout a sui­ta­ble enco­der only you will see the result of your work. To crea­te a stream, you need an enco­der. The enco­der takes the audio and video data and com­pres­ses it into a format […]

Count­downs

We recom­mend the use of count­downs for our live streams for good reason: digi­tal par­ti­ci­pan­ts often tune into your chan­nel, for exam­p­le on You­Tube or Vimeo, long befo­re the stream starts so that they don’t miss any­thing. Howe­ver, a stan­ding pic­tu­re does not con­vey anti­ci­pa­ti­on or even exci­te­ment and ten­si­on. Users also do not know […]

Book launch in the livestream

Publi­shing a book is an important and exci­ting time for any aut­hor, and you want to publi­ci­ze your work as wide­ly as pos­si­ble.

Live­strea­ming and hybrid events 2.0 — one-hit won­der or a gen­re with a future

It was­n’t all that long ago that the terms live­strea­ming and hybrid events were some­thing for tech geeks in the know. Today, in the sum­mer of 2022, most of us can sing a song about vir­tu­al mee­tings with ZOOM, MS Teams or WebEx. The ver­ses deal with web­cams and micro­pho­nes, band­widths and net­work con­nec­tions, green […]

Vir­tu­al events are valuable

The lear­ning cur­ve in 2020–22 was steep. One of the most important fin­dings is that vir­tu­al events are not a stop­gap solu­ti­on, but can offer real added value. Time is rela­ti­ve: the tran­si­ti­on from purely face-to-face events to digi­tal, hybrid, vir­tu­al events does not mean trans­fer­ring ever­y­thing to the digi­tal world on a 1:1 sca­le. A […]

The future of lear­ning: EdTech

New tech­no­lo­gies have an impact on the way we teach and learn. The term “EdTech” (Edu­ca­tio­nal Tech­no­lo­gy) stands for the­se chan­ges. It covers the deve­lo­p­ment and imple­men­ta­ti­on of digi­tal tools, plat­forms and resour­ces that are used to sup­port edu­ca­tio­nal pro­ces­ses. The­se include online lear­ning plat­forms, edu­ca­tio­nal soft­ware, digi­tal text­books and mobi­le appli­ca­ti­ons. EdTech can also […]

SRT and NDI

Secu­re Relia­ble Trans­port (SRT) and Net­work Device Inter­face (NDI) stand for AV-over-IP solu­ti­ons that enable high-qua­­­li­­­ty video trans­mis­si­on with low laten­cy, but still ser­ve dif­fe­rent appli­ca­ti­ons.  SRT has an inte­gra­ted two-way return chan­nel that trans­mits essen­ti­al per­for­mance infor­ma­ti­on during strea­ming. This enables the pro­to­col to detect and rec­ti­fy pro­blems. To use SRT, the enco­der and […]

Walk on red — stand on green

Many peo­p­le are not used to it, some igno­re it com­ple­te­ly: the tal­ly light. A small light abo­ve the came­ra lights up in eit­her red or green and indi­ca­tes the per­spec­ti­ve from which the pic­tu­re is or will be taken. Red means “recor­ding”, green means “pre­pa­ra­ti­on”. And it’s not like in road traf­fic. Desk­top microphones […]
