Is mobile live streaming the future of show business?

benefits

Smart Videos organises live streaming shows on Facebook, Instagram and other platforms because nothing gives more adrenaline than interaction with my audience. But how to stimulate participation and for what purpose?

1
Your adrenaline live

Building a show, its guests and content is in itself an innovative and exciting marketing strategy.
This energy flows from the crew to the audience and back again.

2
Interaction is key

Whatever the content, the audience must actively contribute to it.
Questions, polls, quizzes, contests, interviews – people are eager to make their voices heard.

3
Time-limited

The good thing about live streaming is its time definition: once the live show is over, what’s done is done.
Hence, I’ll make sure I have used all the energy at my disposal.

Single or multi-camera Facebook live streaming?

There is a first and essential distinction that needs to be understood with regard to live streaming on Facebook, Instagram and other social networks.
This is the distinction between single-camera and multi-camera live streaming. Single-camera live is what we produce using a smartphone: simple, straightforward, direct and undemanding.

From 2020 we will also provide multi-camera streaming services, thanks to the Ecamm software.
This solution allows us to contaminate the streaming with graphics, pre-recorded videos, guests connected via Skype.

Why we recommend this solution

A live show is first and foremost a container.
This makes it possible to gather and concentrate a large number of creative ideas with a limited amount of effort.

Why you should think twice

Going live means depriving yourself of the possibility of filtering the final result. We consider this loss of control to be healthy for a company’s communication.
But we know that this prospect can be scary.

Why calls, polls, quizzes make my live streaming vibrate on Facebook

We can build the television of the future with the tools and functionalities provided by social networks.
After all, independent audiovisual production has always been the driving force behind the evolution of mainstream linguistic codes.

Most importantly, our viewers can call in live, participate in prize games, express their opinion and build the programme with us. This makes them protagonists and therefore more involved.
