Live Streaming Video – What is it?

Live streaming video? What is it? Is it really worth getting excited about?

Live Streaming Video Children

I remember when I first started full-time work. I was teaching business undergraduate students on Queensland’s beautiful Gold Coast. One of my most vivid memories was my first big purchase with my work earnings. It was a new fandangle gadget called a CD player. It was a beautiful thing to look at and use. I could only afford one CD – The Travelling Wilburys. I played the Big O and his friends a LOT. I was so excited to play with this new technology that delivered an amazing quality experience.

I feel the same way again. This time my gadgets are webinar systems, Blab, Periscope and Meerkat. Live streaming really is worth getting excited about.

What is Live Streaming Video?

Live streaming video provides us with the opportunity to communicate with others live via video through our computer, smartphone, tablet or other Internet enabled device. Sometimes, the video is one way, such as Periscope and Meerkat where the presenter uses the software to teach or sell something to the other participants. In other cases, such as Blab, multiple presenters can see each of their video screens as they chat with each other. There is a wide array of products that deliver quality live streaming video experiences, including webinar software. We can all access sophisticated solutions for using live streaming video that can be used for:

  • Conducting meetings
  • Presenting online training
  • Providing product information
  • Generating sales

I am so excited about the potential for live streaming video to enhance communications at work and home. If you like the idea of getting excited too then a great way to learn more about live streaming video is to take a look at my Beginners Guide to Live Streaming. It is free and you can get it here.
