If so, that’s great! Brushfire offers a paid streaming solution. Simply sell tickets and registrations like normal, host your event entirely online, and your attendees can view your password-protected stream! Switching to a streaming event is easy. (Adding a simulcast to your event works the same way!)
Streaming traditionally is viewed as a complex feature for most events. There are normally three components when it comes to streaming: an encoder (the hardware), a cloud storage platform, and the video player. With the progressions of social platforms like Facebook, YouTube, and Vimeo. Streaming is now more attainable than ever to the normal event organizer.
