Our web streaming solution is fully compatible with mobile devices, including iPads/iPhones and Android devices. We do not use Flash as this format is no longer widely accepted or accessible, as a result all our video players are HTML5 enabled for maximum compatibility; giving you peace of mind knowing your webstream is not alienating potential viewers allowing you to engage with more people, quicker, and easier. 

Also included in our web streaming solution is the ability to have powerpoints displayed during the stream, syncing to key points when the speaker changes the slide. Viewers can toggle between watching the speaker or looking at the powerpoint slide. This feature is for both Live and on demand webstreams. No longer will you have viewers complaining about eneligible slides, as all the slides are presented in full resolution.

Frequently Asked Questions

about Television Broadcasting

Dstv sounds like it’s going to be too expensive, how does it save me money?

In brief you can address any number of people anywhere in the world from one venue. The savings on travel costs and man hours alone compensate for any broadcasting costs. Calculated cost per employee over a certain figure, it is the most cost effective way to communicate. A single trainer can now in a single day train all your employees at once.

I don’t have the expertise to put a television program together, where do I even begin to plan a broadcast?

Our creative team will assist you from conceptualizing, scripting, and producing, right up until the delivery of the final product. This can include professional presenters, role plays, inserts, graphics and 3D animation and more.

You either come to our studio in Johannesburg or we bring our mobile studio to your venue or offices anywhere in South Africa (or the world).

How do I ensure/know that my viewers are watching?

We have several options for monitoring viewership. Our web-streaming services include a monitoring report as to how many people log in. For DStv broadcasts we include interactivity with the viewers – encouraging them to engage in the show with SMS’s, twitter, email, and phone calls. A follow-up questionnaire allows one to judge the impact of the show, and viewership.
