The wheel of time turns, and people seem to be getting busier day after day – back in those days, people had to travel from different parts of the country to meet up and discuss things, but now it’s all virtual conferences. We live in a world where video webcasts are becoming increasingly popular; YouTube has more than a billion views per day. The bottom-line is: online videos are the order of the day.
Businesses find it prudent to conduct their conferences, customer meetings and interviews over the Internet – in the form of webinars. This not only reduces the time, effort and money for traveling to a conference, but also it can accommodate more people than a conference in real-time. With a horde of webinar providers across the world, it would make more sense to businesses to save on resources by making all conferences, interviews and seminars virtual events.
Webinar services have made the concept of online events so easy that with just a browser or a webinar software application, and an internet connection, you can make your streaming video available to the people that you want. Further, they also provide invaluable webinar support for businesses that are familiarizing themselves with this concept.
Webinar hosting is typically like outsourcing the organization of a business’s online events to a vendor – it is available on a cost per user per minute basis; online seminars work out to be far cheaper than actual events which envelop parameters like lodging, travel expenses, organizational cost, and man-hours.
Webcasts are different from web conferencing only in the sense that it is essentially a single-way conversation and not a discussion. Not only do businesses use webcasting for streaming their discussions and meetings online for other employees, most businesses resort to webcasts for streaming their newsfeeds and promotional videos. All it takes for a corporation to set up a webcasting session is a reliable and fast broadband connection.
The fact that webcast solutions are cheap and available with all web service providers across the globe makes the concept of webcasting popular. Due to another feature called webcast recording, users who miss out on live discussions can choose to save the webcasts for later use. Businesses find the concept useful to them because all services generally provide them with tools for inception and webcast support.
