Live-streaming events and talks to the benefit of the wider world has become increasingly popular across campus. It is relatively simple to set up basic live streaming and a great way to reach people who, for any reason, are not able to physically attend.
Monterey Institute events can now be streamed live from our official MIIS livestream.com channel – that is where we streamed the Reza Aslan talk on November 4, 2010 and that is where people who are not able to attend the Fisher Forum on the 14th can go to see and hear the amazing panelists that will be talking about international, innovation and industry. Other events are scheduled and the possibilities are just about limitless.
One of the great things about having a channel on livestream.com is that it allows us to keep the same url from event to event so that we could potentially gain a real following – but that of course is dependent on content more than technology. This is a free channel and we do not intend to upgrade any time soon – but the downside is that viewers will be subject to very limited commercials during the broadcast. The events are recorded for later viewing but if you intend to create a video or use footage from an event in a video, keep in mind that you will also need to make other arrangements for recording.
If you have an event and are thinking about live streaming, please contact Eva – firstname.lastname@example.org, for set-up tips and guidelines.
