Webcast Production

Live-stream your event or class live so audiences around the world can see it as it happens. A webcast is similar to a standard lecture or event recording: the Computing Services videographer captures and cuts between one or more video streams and the presenter's slides or other digital content. When you add a webcast to your event, viewers can watch it live online if they aren't able to attend in person.
