Webinar Production Services for Business

Webinar production for AGMs, quarterly updates, conferences & sales meetings.

What is the difference between a webinar and a webcast? 

What is a webinar?

We define a webinar as an information-sharing exercise, often using PowerPoint slides alongside live video of the presenters. Firstly, they’ll usually make use of a webinar platform like Zoom or WebEx and include some kind of audience interaction – usually through Q&A and polling. Secondly, they’re often used for lead generation or content marketing and require attendees to register to access. Webinars can be pre-recorded or live. Scroll down for some more info on webinar platforms.

What is a webcast?

We define live webcasts as corporate broadcasts (B2B rather than public-facing). Internal communications events like Town Halls or financial information based events like quarterly results are typical webcasts. Typically, they’re one-to-many broadcasts that don’t have much audience interaction. Unlike webinars they tend not to use a specific platform though they’re increasing delivered using company-wide services like Microsoft Teams.

Professional Webinar Production for Business Events

Pre-production & Planning

High quality webinars need good preparation. Everything relies on a well organised scheduled that all your hosts and contributors understand. An experienced webinar producer and our technical delivery team work with your team to make sure it’s delivered the way you want.

All technical aspects, content and graphics are prepared in advance by our engineers so you get a polished, professional result that lets hosts focus on presenting rather than running the webinar. By the time your webinar is due to start your contributors and hosts will be well prepared and confident.

Backups & Redundancies

Live webinars and webcasts only happen once. That’s why we always provide bonded backup internet connections and properly investigate any existing infrastructure used as part of a broadcast. Additionally, we always duplicate all equipment for a broadcast and provide primary and secondary encoding solutions if supported by the webinar platform being used.

Delivering internal comms webcasts is often challenging due to I.T. restrictions and legacy AV installations. We work closely with our clients’ internal I.T. teams to ensure broadcasts are reliable, accessible and don’t interfere with normal business operations.

 

Expert Production & Technicians

Every webinar is different. We provide scalable portable production units (PPU) ranging from a single camera to a 3+ camera shoot with expert technicians and camera crew. Prior to any webinar we asses any available in-room AV you might have and integrate it to reduce the cost of the webinar production.

Once the webinar is over our is work just beginning, making sure your session recording are available as quickly as possible. Fast on-demand editing and upload to OVP cloud hosting services is all included. 

Creative Content Creation

Our starting point is the overall quality of the video production and sound. Additionally, there no limit to the kind of content you can include in your webinar. Graphics, comments, social or intranet posts, tweets, pre-recorded video are all standard options to help keep your content engaging and fresh.

We work with all the major live webinar platforms and can help you improve production quality. If you’re just starting out we’re happy to advise (for free) which is the best option for you and help you create accessible, engaging content your audience can access at work, home or on the move.

Broadcast Quality Webinar Production

Zoom

Zoom is everyone’s go-to webinar platform for a reason. Cheap, reliable and very versatile with a lot of features once you start upgrading. We work with Zoom on a daily basis and despite the (unwarranted) bad press around security, it’s a good fit for webinars.

Microsoft Teams

A new addition to the webinar space but has some great features. Best suited to ‘in-organisation’ webinars rather than external invitations. It’s ‘Producer’ features are way ahead of any other webinar platform.

webex-logo

WebEx

WebEx was the real first-to-market webinar platform. It’s had some serious updates in recent years and is easy to use for the audience, hosts and presenters. It also handles the registration/marketing emails better than any other service.

gotomeeting-logo

GoToWebinar

The GoTo suite of services are well put together and easy to use for both host and audience. Not as fully-featured as some of the other platforms but we see that as a plus! As part of the LogMeIn family security is at the forefront.

LinkedIn Live

Not a ‘webinar’ service but strictly business. A robust broadcast platform for companies to broadcast content relevant to their network. Think YouTube for business. Easy to use, effective and will grow in the coming years.

Workplace by Facebook

Workplace By Facebook is the leader in social media for internal communications and has the essentially the same feature set as it’s public offering. Again, not really a webinar platform but if your organisation is on FB workplace then it’s the obvious choice for in-business broadcasts.

From the first time we spoke with Sarah we knew this was the right team to trust the most important event we have run to date with. They completely understood our concerns and made it seamless to create a live stream event for over 2000 online registrants. They worked very closely with the venue to take any additional work off of our hands. Additionally the team onsite was professional and friendly and always had a plan B. The final product has seen huge additional views and replays and is a solid piece of content we are reusing for our customers and projects. We will not use anyone other then Kinura on all future projects in London!

* Where is the event taking place?
We work in all regions in the UK and continental Europe or you can book one of our studios.

* When is the broadcast?
Usually, we’d need at least two week’s notice so we can adequately prepare for a live stream. However, certain times of the year are busier than others so don’t leave it too late!

* Do you have an AV company looking after in-room AV/sound?
If you’re planning on using a hired venue for a webcast or live stream then sound (microphones & in-room PA) will be provided. However, if you’re planning using one of your own locations we’ll need to allow for sound technicians.

* What platform would you like broadcast on (via social media or private/securely)?
We can distribute your stream to multiple social media platforms and your website simultaneously. Or, if you’re planning an internal comms broadcast or any other live stream that contains sensitive information, we can make it secure for you.
